ORLANDO, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - Orange County Animal Services staff are currently in the process of impounding 15 small dogs into the shelter. The dogs were relinquished to Animal Services after their owner was evicted. The group of dogs consists of eight females and seven males. Fourteen of the dogs appear to be terrier mixes and weigh between ten to 15 pounds. One dog in the group is larger, weighing approximately 45 pounds. Most of the dogs appear to be friendly, although some are fearful.
Animal Services is now accepting adoption applications for these dogs. The shelter is celebrating National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month by waiving the standard $55 dog adoption fee for those who opt to register their new pet's microchip onsite.
Each dog adoption includes sterilization, initial vaccinations, microchip identification, heartworm test and Adoption Welcome Kit. Animal Services is highlighting the importance of microchip registration by waiving dog adoption fees for families who immediately register their new pet's information, which is a $9.95 fee through the national company.
Orange County Animal Services is located at 2769 Conroy Road in Orlando near the Mall at Millenia. For more information, please call (407) 836-3111 or visit www.ocnetpets.com.
