Gimme Shelter: Meet Maya!


Meet Maya! Maya (A426101) went to foster care in early April with sores from flea allergies, and has been in foster care being treated and monitored since then. She is improving, but will need further care at a private practice veterinarian, which may include steroid injections. Maya is returning from foster care in a few days and is really hoping to find her forever home before then! Because she has chronic allergies, she needs an adopter willing to provide her medical care as needed. Maya is 5 years old and super sweet, loving and mellow. Please email if interested in learning more about her or meeting her!

For the month of July, we are featuring the Dapper Dogs & Classy Cats promotion. Dogs and cats will have a $10 adoption fee. Adoption fees include sterilization, vaccinations and a microchip.

Orange County Animal Services is located at 2769 Conroy Road in Orlando, 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
