realitysoundbites. 15,000 Pounds Of Pet Food


In an heroic effort to keep Central Florida families together with their pets, the food pantry at Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando began giving away pet food for nearly 100 animals every Friday. Then on May 1, they held a curbside pick-up event, and dis- tributed 15,000 pounds of pet food to 700 Central Florida families in need.

years and, on average, provides food for between 15 to 20 animals each month. During the curbside event, people showed up more than two hours before it began, with some spending nearly that long waiting in line to pick up food. The need was apparent to the shelter staff who


worked hard to coordinate the event and load food into everyone’s car. Just as obvious was the gratitude from the people receiving the food. There is a pet food pantry at both Pet Alliance


of Greater Orlando shelters. Donations are always greatly needed, right now.

PetAllianceOrlando.org Shelters Cleared During The Pandemic


Shelters across the country reported clearing the shelters as a result of a record number of families wanting to foster during their self-isolation periods. Some families ended up adopting the dogs and cats they fos- tered. Other families, like the Gellners, used the time to foster and social- ize Bobby, an adoptable from Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando. Foster families get to know the personality of a shelter pet and pass along this invaluable information to shelter staff. The information, in turn, helps to match a pet with the right family. The Gellners and their business Stanley Steemer are longtime sup-


porters of the shelter. The family fostered Bobby during the self-isolation period of the pandemic. “It was a very rewarding experience and we will always have this positive memory during this crazy time,” said Connie. Stanley Steemer locations in Florida, owned by animal advocates
