ORLANDO, Fla. – Orange County Animals Services took in 98 pets yesterday and is urging all Central Florida pet lovers to adopt.

Twenty-seven of the pets came from a single household. A 73-year-old woman came to shelter with small dogs and puppies saying she no longer had the means to take care of them. The dogs appear to be in good health.

"We are in need of anyone who is ready to take on the responsibility of owning a pet to visit the shelter and adopt," said Dil Luther, division manager of Orange County Animal Services.

For the month of April, the shelter will waive the standard adoption fee for animals that have been surrendered. 

Each adoption includes spay/neuter, initial vaccinations, microchip identification, deworming, heartworm test (dogs) or FLV/FIV tests (cats), rabies vaccination and Adoption Welcome Kit.

Orange County Animal Services is located at 2769 Conroy Road in Orlando near the Mall at Millenia. The facility is open for adoptions Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sundays from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, please call (407) 836 3111 or visit their website.
