Sanford Shelter Dog Adoptions to Reopen Wednesday, December 18, 2019

Tuesday, December 17, 2019 Update

Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando is happy to announce that dog adoptions and intakes at our Sanford facility will be reopening at 12 pm on Wednesday, December 18, 2019.

Over the last several weeks, we treated seven confirmed cases of puppies with canine parvovirus across both shelters. When faced with an outbreak of parvo, many shelters will put down all affected puppies in their care because they lack the resources to isolate and treat it. Thankfully, we did not have to do that.

Thanks to the quick thinking of our shelter staff and the expertise of our shelter medical team, we were able to provide lifesaving care to the puppies affected as well as preventable care to 20 additional dogs.

The puppies are now recovering and will be ready to find their forever homes soon. The cost of treating parvo ranges from $500 – $2,000 as each case presents its own challenges and treatment plan. 

We are lucky enough to not only have the ability to isolate these puppies but also experienced staff and the resources to treat the virus thanks to your support. Each donation helps provide lifesaving medical support to animals in need. Your support also helps ensure that operations continue as normal for all of the pets in our shelters.

Will you donate today to continue to make this lifesaving work possible?

We are happy to reopen the shelter to the community just in time to find them loving homes for the holidays. Help us clear our shelters! As of today, over 245 animals are ready to find their next forever home at both our shelters and offsite locations. An additional 120 cats and dogs are in foster care and will soon be looking for their new family too!

Fireworks Aren’t Fun for Pets

Pets are often the bedrock of family shindigs with their contagious enthusiasm, killer on-them outfits, and the ability to make the room feel lighter. Backyard BBQ’s wouldn’t be the same without a wagging tail, and late-night board games are required to have a cat stampede across them flinging tokens as they go. It’s tradition. However,
