Wildlife Sanctuary working to keep animals warm
NORTHWEST FLORIDA -- The Wildlife Sanctuary of Northwest Florida is taking steps to keep their animals warm.
They're giving them extra food and bedding and covering the cages to block the wind.
They're also wrapping their pipes and storing some water in case the pipes freeze anyway.
Director Dorothy Kaufmann says she worries, too, about injured animals in the wild.
Dorothy Kaufmann/Director, Wildlife Sanctuary: "This type of weather causes a snowball effect, and they run into a hypothermia and so if people see the little pelicans that are just in the same place day after day they really are having an issue right now."
If you want to donate bedding or if you see a wild animal in distress the sanctuary is on "S" Street in Downtown Pensacola.
Their phone number is 433-9453.
