Gimme Shelter: Meet Memphis!



Memphis (A418152) is approximately 4 years old. He was brought in as a stray and tested FIV-positive, but he is also one of the most easy-going and sweetest of cats.

He is a total foodie and will tell you all about it with his silly-sounding meows, as he often hangs out in the kitchen to "help" just on the off chance that you drop something. (Don't be fooled, though, this boy is absolutely giant and definitely doesn't need human food in addition to his regular diet.) He loves to snuggle and will hang out with you on the couch while you're watching TV. Memphis also likes other cats and frequently plays with his foster parents' owned cats. If you are interested in adopting Memphis, email!

For the month of March, come on down to Orange County Animal Services to participate in our "March Meowdness" adoption promotion! The adoption fee for cats will be reduced to just $10, and fees include sterilization, vaccinations and a microchip. The adoption fee for dogs will be $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
