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!

Alexis (Lexie) Young met her first cat named Milkyway when she visited an animal shelter with her Girl Scout troop early on in her 11-year journey from “Daisy” to “Senior” scout. Like with most Girl Scout troops, becoming a well-rounded scout means learning about the community — and it starts by experiencing it first hand.
No pet parent should have to feel the panic and stress of prioritizing pet food purchases against a laundry list of other financial responsibilities. Especially if it means the difference between keeping their beloved pets or surrendering them to the shelter. But as the spread of COVID-19 continues, so do these struggles for millions of
