Gimme Shelter: Meet Xena 

Are you looking for a new furry friend? Meet Xena! Xena (A388731) did a great job raising her five Manx kittens and they've all found wonderful forever homes. Now it's her turn to find that kind of love. She's still young and playful and would make a great companion for someone who has time to play with her (chasing string toys is her favorite). Xena has been spayed, vaccinated and microchipped so she's available for immediate adoption. Visit this sweet girl today!

Central Florida animal shelters unite this December to help shelter pets find homes for the holidays: Orange County Animal Services, along with Osceola and Seminole counties, are reducing pet adoption fees to just $12 for dogs and cats for the month, and the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando is reducing adoption fees to just $12 for the 12 days leading into the Christmas holiday. Adoption fees cover sterilization, vaccinations and microchipping. Get the gift you really want – a new four-legged friend this holiday season!

Orange County Animal Services is located at 2769 Conroy Road in Orlando near the Mall at Millenia. The shelter is open 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 1-5 p.m. Sunday. For more information, please call 407-836-3111 or visit
