Gimme Shelter (8/17/16)



Are you looking to adopt a pet? Monty (A356666) is a 3-year-old dog who is looking for a home. He was surrendered to the shelter because his owner could not care for him.

Monty is laid-back and walks well on a leash. He even knows basic commands, such as how to sit! Monty loves to cuddle and is a very affectionate dog. He does have heartworm disease, but it is treatable so don't let that deter you from adopting this wonderful boy.

For the month of August, our Summer Splash adoption promotion is back. After selecting the perfect pet, adopters will be able to draw an adoption fee that will be reduced to $5, $10 or $15. The adoption fee includes sterilization, vaccinations and a microchip. Monty's adoption fee has been waived due to his heartworm disease.

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
