Orange County Animal Services Announces St. Patrick’s Day Adoption Event        

Hours Extended and Adoption Fees Reduced

Orange County Animal ServicesOrange County, FL – Orange County Animal Services (OCAS) announced today that it will be hosting a St. Patrick’s Day adoption event on Sunday, March 17, 2024. The shelter will be extending the adoption hours to 7 p.m. and reducing all pet adoption fees to $17 for the day.

“We’ve been watching so many wonderful dogs sit here for weeks or months unnoticed. We know they would be a lucky charm for the right family. So, we invite people to wear green and come to our shelter,” said Diane Summers, manager for Orange County Animal Services.

Lincoln (A538798) is one such dog. The 5-year-old dog arrived at the shelter on December 18, 2023 and has been overlooked since, despite his friendly demeanor. One might say he is a “clover” not a fighter!

Another noteworthy pet is Hurley (A542618), who arrived in February, 2024 after his owner abandoned him and left him in a vacant yard.

“Pets like Hurley, who arrive in our care after they have been abandoned or in similar traumatic situations, struggle to shine, as they are undoubtedly stressed,” said Summers. “At 2 years old, this boy can be a pot of gold and deserves to be in a comfortable home.”

Animal Services is inviting the public to visit the shelter at 2769 Conroy Road in Orlando on the event day between 10 a.m. through 7 p.m. More than 60 dogs and cats are designated as “ready to go home” on event day and the staff is hoping the luck of the Irish will be with these wonderful animals. Currently, the shelter is caring for over three hundred animals.

Available pets can be viewed on the shelter’s website, along with information on the adoption process.
