Gimme Shelter (3/4/15)



This week's featured pet is Stewy (Animal ID A312143). He's a friendly 12-year-old white and "gold" Pekingese. Stewy was found as a stray and is in need of a new home. After last week's viral dress controversy that almost broke the Internet, Stewy has asked us the question, "Wait, is my fur white and gold, or is it actually black and blue?"


This Sunday, the shelter begins its Luck of the Paw adoption promotion, which will reduce adoption fees for all animals to $5, $10, $15 or free. All pets adopted from Orange County Animal Services (2769 Conroy Road, 407-396-3111, are spayed/neutered, microchipped and up-to-date on shots before going home.
