ORLANDO, Fla. — Summer is always a time of greater need for Central Florida’s homeless animals. And this summer, because of the coronavirus pandemic, the animals need your help more than ever. That is why our WFTV 9 Family Connection partner Stanley Steemer of Central Florida has teamed up with Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando to help raise awareness of fostering, adopting and encouraging donations to help these homeless pets.
Supplies and vaccines are more expensive -- and harder to find. Many volunteers have had to stay home. And adoption events have been canceled, meaning more animals need to remain here with us, waiting longer to find their forever homes.
And that’s on top of what already is the busiest time of year - “puppy and kitten season.” Over the next two months, countless puppies and kittens will go through the Pet Alliance’s doors — with over 1000 kittens entering our care this year alone.
These innocent animals are depending on us to help in the ways we can. If that's through fostering kittens we find wandering the streets, adopting, or donating directly to the cause.
