National Adoption Week is here and the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando is celebrating in style. 

The Pet Alliance, which is still recovering from the unexpected fire that we told you about here, is partnering with PetSmart Charities in order to reach its goal of 100 adoptions by the end of the week. 

PetSmart Charities encompasses a similar mission to the PAGO, committing to strengthen communities by supporting pets and those who love them.

Cats will be available all week at the Altamonte Springs PetSmart, the Lake Mary PetSmart and the Ocoee PetSmart. 

Dog adoption events will be taking place this weekend at PetSmarts Lake Mary and Altamonte locations. 

All available animals and their locations will be on the PAGO website by Friday evening.

There will be no holds on pets, who are available on a first come, first serve basis.

Adoption fees can be payed in cash or credit and include spay and neuter surgeries, vaccines, microchip, and a waived Pet Alliance Clinic exam fee.

Dogs must leave on a leash and collar.

The full pricing for select adoptions can be viewed on the PAGO website.
