Meet Dori!

Hi, I'm Dori (A431472)!

Dori is a very tiny, very short-haired, very adorable gray tabby, probably born around the middle of May, so she's still just a baby. Dori is a busy, busy little girl who wants to explore everything and yet still comes running for hugs and affection. She has a purr motor that really rumbles loud and clear! She doesn't run so much as bounce – it will make you laugh out loud. Dori loves to play with toy balls and mice and hide under things to jump out at you! She would do great with well-behaved children, dogs and other cats. She's litter box-trained and uses a cardboard scratcher like a big girl.

Dori is available for adoption through Orange County Animal Services and is currently in the care of a foster parent. Please email if you’d like to meet her.

You can see more information about Dori and other available cats and kittens in Orange County’s foster care program by visiting Kindness for Cats, a small group of experienced foster parents who foster for Orange County Animal Services.

For the month of July, OCAS is featuring the Dapper Dogs & Classy Cats promotion, dogs and cats will have a $10 adoption fee. Adoption fees cover 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
