Orange County Animal Services is set to receive a $50,000 grant investment from national nonprofit Petco Love during a special celebration at the Millenia Petco at 4616 Millenia Plaza Way on Wednesday, August 3, 2022, at 2 p.m. in support of their lifesaving work for animals in the Orlando area.
For the first time, Orange County Animal Services, Osceola County Animal Services, Seminole County Animal Services and the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando are sharing a unified message asking for support from Central Florida residents. Each shelter is near capacity with high intakes of homeless animals. One factor contributing to this challenge has been rising housing costs, as reported by Orange County Animal Services last month.
Orange County Animal Services (OCAS) is dealing with a high number of animal surrenders, primarily related to rising housing costs and other economic factors. In May alone, the shelter received a whopping 361 pets from owners no longer able or interested in caring for them. In response, the shelter is reducing its adoption fees.
On Tuesday, March 22, 2022, the Board of County Commissioners selected Bacon Group, Inc. for design of the new Animal Services facility. Bacon Group, Inc.’s portfolio includes design for Miami-Dade Animal Services, Atlanta Humane Society, Jacksonville Humane Society and Chesapeake Animal Services.
Orange County Animal Services is a progressive animal-welfare focused organization that enforces the Orange County Code to protect both citizens and animals. We provide service throughout Orange County, including all municipalities.
