Orange County Animal Services Announces Special Promotion: "Five Day, Five Dollar Felines"


ORLANDO, Fla — Orange County Animal Services is waiving the standard adoption fees for all cats and kittens starting this Thursday, November 17 through Monday, November 21. The shelter is hoping the promotion will help match numerous homeless animals with loving, forever homes.

“We have an unusually high number of kittens for this time of year,” said Dil Luther, division manager of Orange County Animal Services. “In total we have nearly 300 cats and kittens in our care, resulting in our feline housing areas being close to maximum capacity. We have high hopes that this promotion will help place many of these wonderful cats in a home for the holidays.”

Each adoption includes spay/neuter, initial vaccinations, microchip identification, deworming, heartworm test (dogs) or FLV/FIV test (cats), rabies vaccination, 5-lb. bag of Science Diet food and Adoption Welcome Kit.

Orange County Animal Services is located at 2769 Conroy Road in Orlando near the Mall at Millenia. The facility is open for adoptions weekdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and weekends from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, please call (407) 254-9150 or visit www.ocnetpets.com.
