Gimme Shelter (3/9/16)



If you're looking for a new addition to your family, Chubbs would make the purrfect pet. Chubbs (Animal ID A341612) is a 2-year-old cat who came to the shelter as a stray. He is very friendly, and he loves being petted and eating kitty treats. Chubbs is playful, but he'd also make a great lap cat. This month, as part of the shelter's Luck of the Paw adoption promotion, adopters can choose a gold coin out of a bucket that will determine the adoption fee of their new pet. Fees will be $5, $10, $15 or free, and all animals are spayed or neutered, microchipped and up to date on shots before going home. Orange County Animal Services is located at 2769 Conroy Road in Orlando Florida 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
