Dear Friends,

It has been a busy few months since I arrived at Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando in May. We ended our fiscal year (June 2016) with 7,217 adoptions while our affordable clinics assisted 43,537 pets.

Sadly, shortly after my arrival, our city was targeted by a terrorist and 49 residents lost their lives in the Pulse shootings. Many of the victims had pets, and through our Project FAITH we assisted 19 families and 30 pets with sheltering, food, medical and dental treatment, annual vaccines and even a fresh grooming for a few of the special pups.

Max's Story
Max stayed in our Orlando shelter for nearly 15 months before finding his forever home in August.

Tragically, Max’s story is all too common at the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando. Large breeds become victims of harsh rental policies regardless of how sweet and gentle they are. This is how Max found himself in our shelter after his family’s landlord said he could no longer stay.

Older, larger breeds like Max often get overlooked in shelters, but we never gave up hope. Our shelters have no limits on time because we know there’s a home for every pet. We thank you for your continued support that allows us to find homes for every Max, regardless of how long it takes.

Training New Pets
Bringing a new furry friend into your home is an exciting time! As your family grows, it’s important to be prepared so you minimize stress to you and your new pet. The decision to adopt a dog is a lifetime commitment, but in return you will be rewarded with their unconditional loyalty, love and devotion.

Follow these tips to ensure you and your new pup start off on the right foot:

1. Pet proof your home. Walk the house and secure items you do not want them to reach. Take special note of any hazards that may harm them. Remember they are curious of their new surroundings, so it’s up to you to keep them out of trouble.

Race for a Cause
Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando board member and amateur race car driver Paul McNamara recently added some new flair to his racing car. He races on the weekends at Sebring Raceway and during the week serves as CFO at Reed Nissan. This year will mark the 3rd year of Reed Nissan’s Adopt-a-thon, which will take place October - December. Their goal is to help Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando adopt out 2,000 pets during the event. Paul hopes his car can keep on pace with our adoptions this year!
