ORLANDO, Fla., May 21, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Celebrating the Memorial Day holiday, traditionally the start of the summer driving season and a big week for car sales, the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando announced today the "Certified Pre-Owned Pets" adoption campaign where any dog or cat can be adopted with a "Name Your Price Guarantee" at either of its two shelters, 2727 Conroy Road, Orlando, FL 32839 and 2800 County Home Road, Sanford, FL 32773. The Pet Alliance's full service veterinary department has checked all pets under the hood (from nose to tail) making sure every animal is spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and equipped with a "Theft Detection Device," also known as a microchip. To view adoptable pets online visit www.PetAllianceOrlando.org . Both shelters will be open on Memorial Day from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.

"Summer months are the most difficult months for pets in animal shelters," said Sean Hawkins, Vice President of Philanthropy & Marketing for the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando. "The shelters are filled to capacity with highly adoptable pets and we are turning to the community for help by asking the public to adopt a homeless pet at the start of the summer season." "It's clearance time on all CAT-egories," said Hawkins. "We are always making room for more models."
Whether you adopt a new model puppy or kitten or a late model senior dog or cat, making room in your family for a special furry friend is made easy with the "Name Your Price Guarantee" where no offer will be refused on all adoption fees from May 23, 2015 to May 25, 2015. If you cannot adopt a pet this week, you can lend a hand by providing a temporary foster home for a special needs animal. For more information on adopting or becoming a foster home, call (407) 351-7722 or visit www.PetAllianceOrlando.org.
