FORT MYERS, Fla. Four shelters will be open Monday night in Lee County.

The county is closing all of its 14 existing shelters except for Germain Arena and Alico Arena and opening two new shelters, county spokeswoman Betsy Clayton said.

LeeTran will provide rides for those in an existing shelter who want to go to one that will be open Monday night, but those who can drive between shelters are encouraged to do so, according to Clayton.

Registration is required to stay at a shelter Monday night, even for those who stayed at a shelter this weekend, Clayton said. Those who plan to stay at Germain and Alico must complete a new registration form.

Registration takes place at the door, according to Clayton.

All Lee County shelters are pet-friendly, but pets should be in crates or on a leash.

Below are the shelters that will be open starting at 6 p.m. Monday:

  • Germain Arena, 11000 Everblades Parkway, Estero
  • Alico Arena, Florida Gulf Coast University campus
  • North Fort Myers Rec Center (new), 2000 N. Recreation Way, North Fort Myers
  • Dunbar Middle School (new), 4750 Winkler Ave. Extension, Fort Myers
