ORLANDO, Fla. — Some local animals are waking up in a new home this week.
9 Family Connection was a proud partner of Saturday’s “Paws in the Park” event in downtown Orlando.
Eleven different pet organizations came together at Lake Eola to celebrate the event’s 30th year.
The goal of “Paws in the Park” is to raise awareness about the importance of animal shelters across Central Florida.
“Our biggest hope is people come in, have a great time, they learn a little about Pet Alliance, animal welfare, and how they can contribute, whether it’s volunteering, financially, promoting other things,” said Steve Bardy, executive director of Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando.
Channel 9′s certified chief meteorologist Tom Terry served as emcee for the event while investigative reporter Karla Ray got to judge the costume contest.
