As summer quickly approaches, team at the Shelter is gearing up for its participation in the final ASPCA Rachael Ray 100K Challenge which will kick off on Sunday, June 1st. More details will be forthcoming. This week, the Shelter is asking our community to also gear up to help us WIN this competition. Please share the information on available animals and adoption events taking place with your friends, family, co-workers, anyone who will listen! Our goal for the Challenge is to find forever homes for nearly 1300 animals over a three month period. The shelter can do this with your help! Help us save one life at a time!

This week’s video features two of our Longtimers, Thor and Victor. They have been at the Shelter so long they have been put to work as bloggers for the Facebook page. It is time for them to find a forever home, so new aspiring bloggers can take over. Please share, share, share the Pets of the Week video!

Dog #A183090 “Thor” will make you smile; he is a very happy and active one and a half year old male, black and white Pit mix. He has a huge head and an even bigger heart! He loves to play with toys and just run around and take in his surroundings. He needs a home, preferably one with a big yard, right away! "Thor has been at the Shelter since April 2nd, which means he is a Long-timer, and his adoption fee is only $10. Come on in and visit “Thor,” he is a gentle giant who will melt your heart.

Cat #185274 “Victor” is a deep thinker with a wonderful sense of humor and commanding presence. He is a 3-year old Domestic Longhair cat who has recently been recruited to be the Facebook blogger, but he says he is ready to have someone else take his place, so he can go live with a forever family. “Victor” is an amicable chap, and speaks with some sort of weird accent, not quite a meow. Come in and visit one of the Shelter’s favorite feline Longtimers (he has been at the Shelter since April 25th) and perhaps take him home to your flat. You’ll be jolly glad you did.

“Thor,” “Victor,” and many, many others at the Shelter are looking for new families to love. Come into the Shelter and save a life by adopting a fantastic pet.
Please keep in mind, however, that the animals' stay at the Shelter is EXTREMELY limited, and they may or may not be available when you arrive. The Shelter is located at 3910 Old Canoe Creek Road in St. Cloud, or to find out what animals are available, check the adoptable pets on the Osceola County Animal Services website at You can also find Osceola County Animal Services on FACEBOOK at
