Greater Orlando Pet Alliance
ORLANDO, Florida. – The Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando has 25 new pups in need of homes after being rescued from an Alabama shelter.
The pups came from an animal shelter in Dothan, Alabama that was suffering from staff shortages due to COVID-19.

“For the Dothan shelter, this meant they had no choice but to ask for help,” said a Pet Alliance press release. “As soon as the call came, the Pet Alliance quickly devised a plan to travel to Alabama and take the dogs to central Florida to save the lives of 25 healthy puppies that might otherwise have been euthanized.”
Every year over 5,000 dogs and cats find their new home in the Pet Alliance’s shelters. Officials say summer is also the time of year when the number of animals given up peaks.
The shelter is asking for donations to take care of the puppies and other dogs in their facility.
