Gimme Shelter: Meet Oso!



Looking for a big friendly pal? Meet Oso!

Oso (A152613) is 11 years old and was surrendered because his owner could no longer care for him. Oso is a friendly guy and he's pretty mellow. He enjoys attention, and he really loves back scratches! He absolutely loves to eat treats. He's a great dog and he can't wait to find a home.


For the month of May, OCAS is running the "So You Think You Can Prance" adoption promotion. All dogs and cats will have a reduced adoption fee of $10. Fees include sterilization, vaccinations and a microchip.


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
