Gimme Shelter (3/2/16)



Meet Gunga (Animal ID A342328). She was recently surrendered to the shelter because her owner could no longer care for her. She is 5 years old and a little shy, but with some patience, she warms up to you. Gunga is a very sweet dog with a gentle personality. She likes to eat treats and enjoys running around. She walks well on a leash and even knows a few basic commands. This month adopters can choose a gold coin out of a bucket that will display the adoption fee for their new pet. Fees will be $5, $10, $15 or free in honor of the "Luck of the Paw" adoption promotion. Orange County Animal Services is located at 2769 Conroy Road in Orlando, near the Mall at Millenia. The shelter is open Monday-Saturday from  10 a.m.–6 p.m. and Sunday from  1 p.m.–5 p.m. For more information, call 407-836-3111 or visit
