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!

Paws in the Park Raises Over $126,000 — Surpassing Fundraising Goal

Thousands of dogs and their people came out to the 25th annual Paws in the Park. It was a record-breaking year with $126,124 raised to support Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando!

Attendees enjoyed a fun day of dog games including the always popular dock diving and lure course and even had a chance to win in our “Best in Show” and “Sit/Stay” contests. 70 vendors and 10 food trucks were there for shopping and eating and the beer/cocktail garden was a popular hangout.

Thank you to all of our sponsors, vendors and the walkers that registered and raised money for making the day an enormous success! We’ll be back next year at Lake Eola Park on February 8, 2020.

If you are interested in joining the event committee or getting involved in any way, please contact Event Manager Caryn Freas at [email protected] or (407) 248-1744. Enjoy our photo gallery from the 2019 Paws in the Park below:

21 Neglected German Shepherds Find Fresh Start in Central Florida

21 German Shepherds are now safe at Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando.

This weekend, Pet Alliance staff jumped to action after receiving a call that over 400 dogs needed to be rescued from a puppy mill in Georgia. At 6 a.m. on Saturday, January 5, four staff loaded into two vans and made the trek. The dogs were living outside in deplorable conditions at two separate locations.

When staff arrived, teams working onsite brought the dogs to them. One by one, each Shepherd was loaded into the van ready to be taken to safety.

At the shelter, the dogs were cleaned up and received lots of love and attention. Many of them are underweight and almost all are timid and a bit fearful. They spent their whole lives outside and with little human contact. Pet Alliance medical and behavioral staff will be doing a full assessment of all the dogs and providing them with what they need to get healthy and be ready for adoption.

Your support will ensure that these dogs will have the care and love they need. Thanks to you, we are able to care for these dogs and all of the other animals in our shelter. We could not do it without your support!

Pictured below are our volunteers showering one of our rescued German Shepherds with love, attention, and a much needed bubble bath, as well as an examination from our medical staff. Follow their story on FacebookInstagram, and Twitter!

Are you and your pet prepared?

  1. Never leave your pet behind.
  2. The safest place for your pet is with you! If you must evacuate, take your pet along.
  3. Place two ID tags on your pet’s collar. Include a temporary tag with the phone number of a friend or relative who lives outside your immediate area.
  4. Microchip your pet and make sure the chip registration is updated. Be sure to locate and update your microchip registry.
  5. Prepare a travel kit for your pet. Include bowls, food, bottled water, towels, needed prescriptions, bathing supplies, flea/tick control, and leashes.
  6. Make sure your pets are current on vaccinations.
  7. Create a record file for each pet. Include your pet’s vaccination records.
  8. Always travel with photographs of your pet.
  9. Have travel carriers handy for evacuation. Make your pet’s carrier a fun and safe place by placing treats, toys and meals in it on a routine basis.
  10. Most public evacuation shelters do not accept pets. Know ahead of time pet friendly accommodations. Visit ‘Bring Fido‘ to locate pet friendly accommodations, and view our map below for area shelters that do allow them.
  11. Take your dogs on a long walk before the storm.
  12. Keep your pets routine as normal as possible (feeding time and potty time
  13. Bonus tip: you can buy a small area of fake grass and a baby pool and put in the garage for them to use the bathroom during the storm.
