Gimme Shelter: Meet Periwinkle



Are you looking for a new family member? Meet Periwinkle!

Periwinkle (A370994) is a 2-year-old dog who is looking for a home. She is a very friendly and sweet pup and she's playful, but can also be mellow. Periwinkle loves to eat treats, and she enjoys being petted. She does have heartworm disease, but her treatment is sponsored in full.


For the month of June, dance on over to Orange County Animal Services and participate in our Meow and Bow Wow Luau adoption promotion! The adoption fee will be reduced to either $5, $10 or $15. Fees includes sterilization, vaccines and microchip identification. Periwinkle's adoption fee has been waived due to her heartworm disease.


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
