Press Release by Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando
Orlando, FL (June 3, 2020) – Adopt a homeless pet in need. There are 200 kittens in need of forever homes. Summer is typically the busiest season of the year at our animal shelters – and this year is no exception. The 2020 Kitten Season is upon us here in Central Florida, meaning thousands of kittens will be brought to shelters across the state (as well as nationwide) as unaltered cats being having litters of kittens.
Currently, Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando has 200 hundred kittens ranging from a few hours old to 8 weeks of age in foster care, which means we have a busy two months ahead as we beginning to place hundreds of kittens in forever homes across Orlando.
There have been 103 adult cats have been surrendered since March 16, 2020. While the bulk of the felines cared for by Pet Alliance are kittens under 6 months old who were found and brought to the shelter, there is still a need from our community to take in owner surrendered pets. Often these pets are older, like 11-year-old Lucy who was surrendered because her family was moving. While at the shelter, we care for each cat by providing a full medical screening, needed vaccines, and all the love they need, and they are never unnecessarily euthanized for time or space. For Lucy, finding her forever home may take longer die to her age, but we’re here for her every step of the way.
Finally, there are 180 adult dogs have been surrendered since March 16, 2020. On average, the length of stay for dogs at Pet Alliance is 9 days. 6-year-old Max has just surpassed that with his 10th day in the shelter. Puppies and younger dogs are adopted quickly. Older, mixed-breed dogs tend to be overlooked and passed over. It’s not fair, but this is why Pet Alliance exists, to be their temporary home. For dogs like 6-year-old Max, this means providing life-saving care. On top of his square head and being a larger breed, he is also heart worm positive which will be treated by the shelter over the next few months even after he finds his home.
Virtual adoption & shelter appointments available. To adopt and see available pets in real-time, please visit www.petallianceorlando.org or call (407) 351-7722
