Gimme Shelter: Meet Lisa!



Meet Lisa (A420561)! This five-year old girl has been in our shelter since January and has been waiting for her fur-ever family to come in. Lisa knows sit, lay down, roll over and many other tricks. She does have heartworm disease, which can be fatal if not treated, but luckily her treatment is sponsored. Adopt this cutie today and help her start her treatment now!

For the month of March, head on down to Orange County Animal Services to participate in our "March Meowdness" adoption promotion. The adoption fee for cats is reduced to just $10, and fees include sterilization, vaccinations and a microchip. The adoption fee for dogs is $55. You'll be sure to score big when you adopt a shelter pet!

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