They All Deserve Care

Sanchez has not had an easy life.

The 8-week-old kitten was brought to the shelter in a shoebox after being found outside all alone. Covered from foot to tail in sores from itchy scabies mites, emaciated, and exhausted from trying to survive on his own — Sanchez’s rescuer couldn’t have come at a more perfect time.

He arrived at Pet Alliance where he was able to begin the long road to recovery. Sanchez received his first medicated bath that provided instant relief to his irritated skin, he experienced the joy of wet food and a full belly, as well as received his first cuddles from shelter staff.  

Scabies is fully treatable, but since it takes four weeks for kittens to fully heal, many shelters do not have the time or space to treat pets like Sanchez. Your gift today can help ensure they receive the care, compassion, and love they deserve.

Please consider making a lifesaving donation today. We need your support more than ever at this busy time.

$15 – Microchip 1 shelter cat
$25 – Test 2 kittens for FeLV and FIV
$35 – One month supply of kitten formula
$50 – Two cases of wet food (feeds 12 kittens)
$100 – Sponsors scabies treatment for one cat

It’s heartbreaking to think about the animals in your community who are struggling to survive.

And during the summer months, when thousands of kittens are born homeless and in desperate need of medical attention like Sanchez, there’s even more urgency.

Thank YOU for your support!

You have the power to make a difference in the lives of homeless dogs and cats in Central Florida.

If Pet Alliance can raise $50,000 by the end of 2019, we can provide lifesaving care for more animals like Gwen, Luna and the parvo puppies you heard about this past month.

We have $20,000 left to reach our goal! Can you help?

Thanks to you, Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando found new homes for 6,411 dogs and cats this year!

Remember the first time your dog nudged his head under your hand to get an extra pet — or the first time your cat happily curled up and purred in your lap? Those memories were created for thousands of people and pets in 2019. You helped make that possible. Can we count on you to help us care for the homeless dogs and cats that will come into our care in 2020?

A year-end gift of $35 or more would be a tremendous help!

  • $35 – provides vaccines and a microchip for one shelter dog
  • $50 – will feed 50 shelter pets for one day
  • $100 – sponsors a puppy or kitten in foster care
  • $250 – would sponsor all the expenses for one shelter cat during their stay
  • $350 – sponsors a shelter dog, including medical care, vaccines, food & shelter

We know that you have many options to consider when making your charitable decisions. We hope to remain among the organizations you hold close to your heart. Your support means the world to us – and the dogs and cats. 

Thank you for your care and compassion.

Finding Sweet Seniors Homes

Michelle Chandler with one of her beloved cats.

Celebrating sixty years of life by helping sixty senior shelter pets, donor Michelle Chandler decided to celebrate her birthday a little differently this year. In honor of her 60th birthday, Chandler sponsored the adoption fees of 60 senior animals at both the Orlando and Sanford shelters. 

Her passion is undeniable as she serves as a community advocate and a dedicated volunteer for Pet Alliance. Michelle has been volunteering with Pet Alliance since 2014 in roles ranging from kitty cuddler to administrative receptionist. Her hope this year was to do something a bit different when it comes to celebrating another turn around the sun. She just wants to help dogs and cats find their furever homes.

Help make her birthday wish come true by adopting a sweet senior. To see which animals are available for adoption under this promotion, check out the adoption profile of the animal and look for “Sweet Senior” in their bio.

Sanford Location Opens Shelter Medical Clinic

Veterinarian Dr. Morris with Clinic staff member Leslie Martinez.

Pet Alliance’s Sanford shelter recently opened a dedicated shelter veterinary clinic due to a generous gift from the Estate of Annie L. Bowman. A longtime resident of Casselberry, and friend of many cats, Annie chose to include Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando in her will. Annie’s family wanted to ensure the gift would have a lasting impact on animals, and the opportunity to fund a new state of the art shelter clinic was a perfect fit.

Over the last few years, the Sanford shelter relied heavily on the resources from Pet Alliance’s public clinic to operate and care for the animals surrendered to the shelter. 

The gift from the Estate of Annie L. Bowman provided the resources needed to fund equipment purchases and renovations to complete the shelter medical space. Having a shelter medical clinic and dedicated veterinary team to care for shelter pets allows Pet Alliance to better meet the healthcare needs of the animals and create a more efficient operation.

“The Sanford shelter clinic will have a significant impact on our shelter pets,” said Fraily Rodriguez, Vice President of Operations. “Pet Alliance’s policy is that all dogs and cats in our shelters must be seen by a veterinarian and, if needed, spayed or neutered before adoption. Before Sanford had its own shelter medical team, animals had to wait, sometimes for days at a time, to be seen by veterinarians in our public clinic. Now, our dedicated staff is doing surgeries 5-6 days a week, which translates to our animals being ready for adoption sooner”

Sanford Shelter Medical team and Shelter staff.

The full-time team made up of Veterinarian, Dr. Nanea Morris, and Veterinary Technician, Tanya Ogle is very excited to have this amazing new clinic space where each dog and cat surrendered to Pet Alliance receives a thorough medical exam, vaccines, preventive medicine, specialized medical issues, and spay/neuter surgery (if needed)—without a significant wait time.

‘It’s exciting how a meaningful innovation like this, thanks to the kindness of donors like Annie and her family, can end up saving more lives in our Seminole County community.”

Petco Foundation Invests $95,000 in Lifesaving Efforts at Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando

Seven-day-old kitten "Monroe" who was turned into Pet Alliance's Virtual Kitten Nursery to be fostered.

Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando was awarded a $95,000 grant from the Petco Foundation to support our lifesaving efforts centered around our Virtual Kitten Nursery and Community Cat Initiative.

The Petco Foundation investment will support Pet Alliance’s efforts to decrease the number of homeless kittens and cats in the community. Modeled after successful programs from other parts of the country, Pet Alliance’s Community Cat Initiative targets neighborhoods with large populations of unowned cats to perform trap-neuter-release.

Staff work each week to educate residents and perform the spay/neuter surgeries at Pet Alliance’s Alafaya Clinic. The Virtual Kitten Nursery is Pet Alliance’s volunteer network that cares for kittens until they reach the 

appropriate age and size for adoption. Petco Foundation’s support will help provide the supplies and support the volunteers need for this program.

“We are deeply grateful for the Petco Foundation’s generous gift. This support will allow Pet Alliance to continue its critical work to make Central Florida a happier and healthier place for pets and people through innovative outreach programs and high-quality sheltering and care,” said Stephen Bardy, Executive Director of Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando. “Within five years, our community should see a significant reduction of homeless cats and fewer kittens and cats being turned in at animal shelters.”

Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando is a nonprofit organization that provides temporary shelter and care to more than 8,000 homeless dogs and cats each year. In addition, the organization provides important surrender prevention, spay/neuter and outreach programs that help reduce the number of homeless pets. Since 1937, Pet Alliance has helped hundreds of thousands of pets receive care and find new homes in Central Florida. In addition, Pet Alliance works tirelessly to transfer in dogs and cats from high euthanasia shelters and those displaced by cruelty situations and natural disasters. In the past year, 7,111 pets were adopted, 1,543 dogs and cats were transferred in and staff veterinarians performed 12,348 spay/neuter surgeries. Volunteers served 79,748 hours including time fostering 1,274 kittens and puppies.

At the Petco Foundation, we believe that every animal deserves to live its best life. Since 1999, we’ve invested more than $250 million in lifesaving animal welfare work to make that happen. With our more than 4,000 animal welfare partners, we inspire and empower communities to make a difference by investing in adoption and medical care programs, spay and neuter services, pet cancer research, service and therapy animals, and numerous other lifesaving initiatives. Through our Think Adoption First program, we partner with Petco stores and animal welfare organizations across the country to increase pet adoptions. So far, we’ve helped more than six million pets find their new loving families, and we’re just getting started. Visit petcofoundation.org to learn more about how you can get involved.
