Osceola County Animal Shelter has provided information on the ongoing Long-timers Special, the Seniors for Seniors Special and in honor of Memorial and our veterans, the Shelter has an ongoing special called Pets for Vets. In this week’s video, Vickie and Bailey will introduce you to “Ana” a young, playful Labrador mix who happens to be a LONGTIMER and “Kristoff” a mature and laid-back senior cat that loves to cuddle. You can take Ana home today for only $10 and if you’re over 55 years of age, Kristoff can be yours for $10 as well.
Dog #A183159 “Anna” has been at the Shelter for long enough and she needs a forever home right away! This red-headed delight is an adorable 8-month old Labrador mix breed. She is both beautiful and polite, she knows how to sit and is young enough to be taught how to walk nice on a leash and be the perfect pet. She will melt your heart! Come in and meet “Anna” today!
Cat #A185274 – Even though it’s not winter and things are not Frozen, you’ll want to stay home and cuddle with “Kristoff.” He is a charming 9-year old tan and white male, neutered Domestic Shorthair cat. He was given up by his owner who could no longer keep him. “Kristoff” would be the perfect pet for a senior age 55 or older who could adopt him for only $10. Still wondering if you should adopt a pet? Come in and visit “Kristoff” and let it go!
“Anna,” “Kristoff,” and many other animals at the Shelter need new homes right away! Please come into the Shelter, look around 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.

This week, we are featuring two senior dogs and a junior cat. A Cocker Spaniel named “Rabbit,” a kitten named “Ducky” and a Shih Tzu named “Perry.”
Dog #A185042 - Meet “Rabbit,” he is an active 6-7 year old male, neutered Cocker Spaniel. He is a furry tan ball of activity, he loves to have his belly rubbed and he really likes other dogs and people. He needs a new forever home, and if you are a senior over the age of 55, he can go home with you for the half price adoption fee. Come in and meet this adorable dog named after the Easter Bunny.
Dog #A185042 – “Perry” is also a senior dog with a fresh haircut and lots of energy. He is a gray and white Shih Tzu who was found wandering in Kissimmee. He has been neutered, and he is obviously well cared for, so perhaps someone will see his photo and recognize him and come get him. Meanwhile, “Perry” is available for adoption; he is 6-7 years old and also qualifies for the Senior for Seniors special discount. Come visit Perry today and give him a forever home.
Cat #A184726 – Say hello to a kitty who will quack you up. His name is “Ducky” and he is not made of rubber, but of a very soft black fur. “Ducky” is only 8 weeks old, he is a male, Domestic Shorthair kitten who was part of a litter brought into the Shelter. “Ducky” even has a litter-mate if you would like to have two kittens. This friendly, laid-back kitten is available now for adoption at the shelter.
“Rabbit,” “Ducky” and “Perry” 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 osceolacountypets.com.

LONGTIMERS!!! What’s that, you ask? Long-timers are animals who have been at the Shelter for more than two weeks. You may adopt a LONGTIMER for only $10 and this includes vaccinations, tags AND spay/neuter. Currently there are eight wonderful dogs who are LONGTIMERS, and they need forever homes, right away! All eight of these dogs are ready to go home with you, today. This week, the Pets of the Week videographer and the Shelter’s interim Volunteer Coordinator, Deborah, will step from behind the camera and give you a close up look at all eight LONGTIMERS! She will do this with the help of one of our best volunteers, Luis.
Dog #A182722 – You have to move fast to hang with “Char Char,” he is a high-energy, one year old male, neutered Black Mouth Cur mix. Char Char needs a home with a big yard and plenty of room to run, and he needs it right now! He is great with other dogs who are friendly to him, but he’s not too crazy about cats. Char Char LOVES to play with toys. He will even get a toy from the toy box and play with it by himself, with you or with another dog for hours!
Dog #A180909 – “Patty” is a gentle and playful female Black Mouth Cur mix, who also loves to run around and play fetch with toys. She is simply adorable. She walks well on a leash and gets along well with everyone. PATTY HAS BEEN ADOPTED!! HOORAY!!
Dog# A182503 Look into “Tanner’s” eyes and you will notice something unique and wonderful. His eyes are not the same color. One is brown and one is blue. This handsome, 3-4 year old, fun loving male Black Mouth Cur mix is probably part Catahoula Leopard because of his “glass eye.” “Tanner” is very loveable and in need of a new forever home right away.
Dog #A 182872 – At first, “Sunday” appears to be on the shy side, but she will warm up to you quickly and the next thing you know she will be begging for attention. Sunday is a kind and lovely, black, 8 month old Pit Bull mix. She is on the smaller side as the breed goes, but she does tend to pull on the leash, especially if she knows she is going out to play.
Dog #A181755 – Strong and lumbering, “Shadow” is a big, muscular 2 year old Pit Bull mix. Don’t let him intimidating appearance fool you, “Shadow” is a puppy at heart who just wants to play with toys and run in the yard. Because he is a big dog, he prefers to play with bigger people and once he has a toy, he would rather it not be taken from him, so he would rather live in a home with adults and older children. He is also housebroken and crate trained.
Dog#A174196 – “Princess” is a vision of beauty with a wonderful temperament and happy attitude. “Princess” is a little over a year old, she loves to jump to say hello, is very curious and she enjoys playing with toys and running around in the play yard. She is good with other dogs, but would prefer to live in a home without cats.
Dog#A180240 – “Dublin” as you can probably guess, has been at the Shelter since St. Patrick’s Day back in March, so he is ready to become a family member in someone’s home as soon as possible. He is a three- year old neutered Pit Bull mix; he is a big, muscular, handsome specimen, but really just a ball of goofiness in the play area. He appears to be housebroken and he really likes to run around and play with toys.
Dog #A180990 - “Last but not least is ”Patrick,” who has been at the Shelter since the first week in March and needs a forever home immediately. “ Patrick” is a friendly, energetic Labrador Retriever mix, who walks well on a leash and is a well behaved boy. He is a little on the shy side, so he might need to live with a family without small children, but he is a wonderful dog.
These eight LONGTIMERS are looking for new families to love, and are hoping you will come to the Shelter and adopt them, because they can leave out the door with you when you come. Remember, you will be saving a life by adopting one of these fantastic animals. 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 osceola.org/go/pets.

In this week’s video, we’d like you to meet “Oreo” a cuddly, smoky black cat with a laid back attitude and “Seth,” a wonderfully active and friendly Boxer. You can find “Oreo and Seth” waiting for you to adopt them and give them forever homes.
Dog #A183149 “Seth” is a handsome specimen of a boxer. He is 5 years old, but don’t tell him, because he is as vivacious and active as a puppy. “Seth” loves to run, jump and play. He was surrendered by his owner; he is housebroken and loves attention, so he would do best as the only animal in your home. He gets along just fine with men, women and children. Come in and go a few rounds with this fun-loving Boxer named “Seth” today!
Cat #A183163 – “Oreo” is also a soft and affectionate, one year old, male, black and white Domestic Shorthair cat who is in need of a forever home. “Oreo” is very easy-going, he is an indoor cat and he enjoys curling up in your lap for a nice nap. He gets along with other cats, but has not been around dogs. Come visit this terrific young feline, today!
