Community Outreach

Promote Our Shelter Pets in Your Business

We have a few different opportunities for your business to promote our shelter pets. The most popular way is placing one of our dog and cat cutouts in your business. A variety of establishments – restaurants, salons and offices – to name a few have chosen to participate in this program. You may see some photos of our cutouts and a list of all participating companies. Our hope is that these cutouts draw the attention of possible adopters who may not have heard of Orange County Animal Services before. The additional exposure is helping us expand the size of our audience, and as a result, get more pets adopted!

If you would like to contribute to these efforts, please fill out the cutout request form and send it to AnimalServices@ocfl.net or 2769 Conroy Rd. Orlando, FL 32839. If your application is approved you will receive a free cutout. If your business would like to help us offset the cost of the cutouts, your business can make a donation to the shelter. This project is reliant on the help of the community and we’re so thankful for all of the companies that have chosen to participate.

Another way to promote our shelter pets is by hosting an offsite adoption event at your location. If you have an event taking place with a large attendance and think some of our pets will find a home by visiting your location, please email AnimalServices@ocfl.net.

Hosting a donation drive is also a great way to raise awareness for the shelter and increase donations. Monetary donations, pet food and pet supplies are always accepted at our shelter. To view a list of constantly needed items, please see our wish list.
