This weekend June 22nd and 23rd, the Osceola County Animal Services is hosting its annual Summer Adoption and Pet Preparedness Event at 3910 Old Canoe Creek Road in St. Cloud. 

On Saturday, June 22nd from 10:30 AM to 3:00 PM, Snip-it and Kissimmee Valley Feed will be on location to provide information on hurricane kits for you and your pet. During the event, animal lovers will be able to make sure they know exactly what they need to have on hand for their pets, like canned and dry food, leashes, collars, name tags, and much more if you had to evacuate from the area. Osceola County Emergency Management and Saint Cloud Emergency Management will also be on site handing out free guides on how you can keep your entire family, including your pets safe, during the hurricane season.

Another added bonus to this event is that community members are able to find a new furry family member through pet adoption specials that are going on over the weekend! Kids can also enjoy free popcorn and snow cones will supplies last.

On Sunday, June 23rd from Noon – 4:00 PM, the Pet Alliance Mobile Vet Unit will be at Osceola County Animal Services to help ensure that pets are vaccinated and have their microchip identification. Collars and tags are extremely important but microchips are also another really great way to identify your pet in an emergency. No appointments necessary, as this service is on a first come, first serve basis. Pet Alliance Mobile Vet Unit is asking owners to make sure that cats in a carrier and dogs are on leashes and kept under control. Available services include: Dog and Cat Annual Packages, Puppy and Kitten Packages, $15 Microchips with package pricing, and individual vaccines may be available.

Animal Services staff will be on hand both days to answer any questions that you may have about the services provided at the shelter.

Now is the time to make sure that your family including your pets are ready ahead of time. Don’t wait until the last minute! Thank you Osceola County Animal Services, Osceola County Emergency Management, Saint Cloud Emergency Management, SNiP-it, and Kissimmee Valley Feed for providing resourceful information to help residents of Osceola County prepare for this year’s hurricane season.
