Shelter adoptions for cats temporarily suspended


The Escambia County Animal Shelter has temporarily suspended the adoption of cats as a result of widespread upper respiratory infections in the shelter’s feline population.

Under the advice of the shelter’s medical staff, the public will not have access to the cats until the cats are treated and recover. The purpose of this effort is to reduce stress on the cats at the shelter and give them every opportunity to recover and have an opportunity to be adopted into a forever family.

Shelter staff will re-evaluate the situation on Tuesday, September 2.
For more information, please contact the Animal Shelter at (850) 595 - 3075.
