SANIBEL ISLAND, Fla. -- CROW will close Friday after 12 p.m. in preparation for Hurricane Irma. It has not set a reopening date yet.

CROW will keep accepting patients directly and at its drop-off veterinary partners in Fort Myers through Friday. After that time, CROW says all wildlife emergencies should be kept in a warm quiet area until it reopens.

In the event of an evacuation, CROW plans to move all patients who can be safely moved to an off-island facility for continuous care.
