Newest Update on Thursday, March 26, 2020

As we are sure our Central Florida community is aware, a Stay-at-Home Order will go into effect in Orange County on Thursday, March 26, 2020 at 11:00 p.m. and will have an effect on both our sheltering and clinic operations in the following ways:

Posted Monday, March 23, 2020

As Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando takes all necessary precautions as they relate to COVID-19, we imagine that the next few weeks will look different to normal day-to-day operations. As of today (Monday, March 23, 2020), our shelters and clinics remain open to the public. Please know that we have stringent sanitation and social distancing protocols in place that will affect adoptions, clinic visitors, volunteers and members of our community:

Adoptions and Shelter

Effective March 24, 2020, Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando has instituted appointment-based adoptions. We will permit one cat and one dog appointment time per 30 minutes with a maximum of 4 people per appointment. (For example, if you bring 6 people to the appointment, only 4 will be allowed in the building.) Appointment times are from 12:00 5:00 PM Sunday through Saturday. This is subject to change without notice. Please check our website prior to arrival.
Schedule an appointment at one of our shelters:

Foster Care

If you are interested in fostering, Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando has an online application and orientation. If you are a new foster, please complete the online application and orientation. A staff member will reach out to you. Completion of the foster application does not guarantee that PAGO will place a dog or cat in your care at this time.


Effective March 27, 2020, Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando has suspended all elective surgeries including Spay or Neuter until further notice. This includes all vouchers and community cat surgeries. Wellness appointments will continue. Clients will not be allowed in the clinic. There is a sign-in at the front door. Please respect the 6ft distance between other clients when signing in. All clients will wait in their cars and will receive a text to bring their pets to the clinic door. Learn more here.


Effective March 24, 2020, Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando has suspended all volunteer activities within the shelter and at our offsite locations until further notice. Hound Around Town and Pet Therapy Teams have been suspended until further notice.

Pet Food Pantry

For residents in need of pet food at this time, our Pet Food Pantry will be by appointment Tuesday – Sat from 12-4 PM. Schedule your visit by calling (407) 351 – 7722.


The decision to relinquish your pet is difficult. At this time, we still require making an appointment to surrender your pet(s). To make an appointment , please call (407) 351-7722 or you can chat us for more information. For more information or to see our resources to help you keep your pet(s) visit our surrender page.
