ORLANDO, Fla., Nov. 25, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kicking off our "Home for the Holidays" campaign, priceless pets are free to adopt starting on Black Friday through the weekend at the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando's two animal shelters, 2727 Conroy Road, Orlando, FL 32839 and 2800 County Home Road, Sanford, FL 32773. Both shelters are open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and from noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday.
"Normally holiday shoppers are waiting in line to get into stores on Black Friday. At the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando, our adorable dogs and cats are in line to get out of the animal shelter and into loving homes just in time for the holidays," said Kerri Burns, Executive Director for Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando. "We have set the goal to have our two animal shelters empty by December 31st with every homeless pet being placed in a permanent new home."
On average, Pet Alliance invests about $300 in every adoptable pet to provide sterilization, micro chipping, vaccinations, flea and heartworm prevention, pet health insurance, and a veterinarian examination. All adoptable pets are available for viewing online at www.petallianceorlando.org. For information about adoptable pets at either location, call (407) 351-7722 during business hours.
Adopters will have to meet adoption requirements. Families adopting pets are asked to bring a collar and leash for dogs or a carrier for cats who are adopted or purchase one on site at both locations.
