‘Tis the season of spreading joy in small but meaningful ways! We’re all looking to add a bit more “holly and jolly” back into our spirits this holiday season, and who better to dote on than our furry friends to make us happy.

If you’ve found yourself leaning more on your pets this year for comfort as a quarantine buddy, you’re not alone. Our pets have given us so much unconditional love during a stressful time. Express your gratitude for their presence in your life by giving that same chance to a homeless dog or cat in your community. Here are 6 Ways to Spread Holiday Cheer at Pet Alliance in the year 2020:

Financial Donations

Directly donating to Pet Alliance ensures that our mission of caring for Central Florida’s homeless pets performs at its highest. Every dollar goes toward the individualized care of each pet. We give each dog and cat nutritious food and treats, daily enrichment, medical care, and love while they wait for their forever homes. If you’re able, please consider making a life-saving donation:

$25 – microchips 2 pets
$50 – one shelter pet medical exam
$100 – spay/neuter surgery for one shelter pet
$250 – five shelter pet medical exams
$500 – spay/neuter surgery for five shelter pet

Holiday Tribute Card

Honor the pet people in your life with a gift from the heart.

Looking for a thoughtful and caring way to honor pet lovers in your life this holiday season? When you make a donation of $20 or more to Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando, we’ll send someone on your gift list a joyous holiday tribute card with your personal message. Deadline to send by Christmas is December 20th. Tribute card donations made after December 20 may not be received by your honoree till after Christmas day.

Donation Drives & Give Back Events

Opportunities to hold giving drives for donations or supplies at work, in your immediate friend group, or in your community make a huge difference this time of year. Below are two example of ways our community is helping shelter pets. We would love to see you at these events, or make one of your own. Let your creativity shine!
