Interested in adopting a pet — or just gazing at some lovable pups up for adoption? There are dozens of deserving dogs up for adoption at animal shelters in and around Orlando.
Animal shelters and pet rescue groups work hard to care for unhoused pets and connect them to loving homes. Hoodline used data from Petfinder to power this roundup of dogs currently available for adoption.
(Details like pet availability, training, vaccinations and other features are based on data provided by Petfinder and may be subject to change; contact the shelter for the latest information.)
Ruby, Belgian shepherd
Ruby is a female Belgian shepherd dog in the care of Puppy Pleasers Rescue.
Ruby plays well with others — she loves other dogs. Good news: She is already house-trained. Ruby's vaccinations are already up to date, and she is spayed.
From Ruby's current caretaker:
Ruby is about three to five years old. She is friendly and calm. Her pups have been adopted, and now it's time to find her a loving home. Ruby suffers from some anxiety, so we want to place her in a home where she won't be left alone for long periods of time.
