Escambia County Animal Shelter veterinarian resigns

ESCAMBIA COUNTY   --  A veterinarian at the Escambia County Animal Shelter has resigned.
Doctor Melissa Adkison has not submitted a formal resignation to the county.
But she did turn over her keys to the facility Friday.   
No word if it has anything to do with the recent policy changes.
One of which requires a veterinarian to sign off on *every* euthanization at the shelter.

The policy change came after three dogs were mistakenly put down in recent months.

The director of the shelter, Delfi Messinger, resigned in September.
