Gimme Shelter (5/25/16)



Are you looking for a new furry friend? Croissant (A348206) will be a treat to add to your family! Croissant is a 5-year-old dog who is looking for a forever home. She is playful and energetic, but once she tires herself out she is a mellow dog. She enjoys being petted and she also likes to eat treats. Croissant is a very sweet and friendly dog who will make a great family pet. She does have heartworm disease, but it is treatable so don't let that deter you from adopting her. The adoption fee for dogs is $55, which includes sterilization, vaccinations and a microchip. However, Croissant's adoption fee has been waived due to her heartworm disease. Additionally, there will be an Adopt-a-Thon on Saturday, May 28. 

Orange County Animal Services is located at 2769 Conroy Road, near the Mall at Millenia. The shelter is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday. For more information, please call 407-836-3111 or visit
