Come out to our Orlando location to help us jog a dog on Thursday mornings! We want to partner you with one of our shelter dogs for a 2-mile run or walk helping to expend their energy and keep you fit!
Our Loaned Jogger Program helps improve the stay for our dogs by enriching their lives on a run outside of the shelter environment. Dogs running with people are happier and healthier and the run allows the dog to form a connection with their human running partner. You may even want to take them home!

In celebration of Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando’s 80th anniversary, this year’s event will be inspired by the happiness that comes from shared experiences with our pets. A warm nose that nuzzles you awake in the morning. An energetic “Hello!” when you get home. A fluffy, purring ball of fur on your lap while you unwind. These are just a few of the moments that always bring smiles to our faces.
Every year, thousands of dogs and cats will briefly reside at the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando and receive care, compassion and hope while waiting for their “forever” home. Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando has inspired smiles for hundreds of thousands of pets and their families. Furball 2017 will leave you smiling, laughing and reflecting on the fun that pets bring to our lives. It’s the only gala event of its kind in Orlando – one that is truly light hearted and enjoyable!
