Jared’s Offers Discounts With Donations To Pet Alliance In Orlando
ORLANDO, Florida – The community is coming together again to support a local animal shelter that suffered a fatal fire last month, leading several animals astray.
Jared’s in Altamonte is partnering with Pet Alliance in Orlando to help the shelter rebuild and care for the surviving animals.

“It’s Zoe on my right, strutting around in her little princess dress and her brother Radar on the other side,” said Laura Pope, who was holding her two dogs while speaking with News 6.
Pope said she hopes this event can make a difference.
Last month, the Orlando shelter was charred by deadly flames that killed more than a dozen cats and led several other animals astray. The fire was of electrical origin and deemed accidental by investigators.
The Pope hopes that somehow the donations collected can help the surviving animals find a new home.
“It breaks my heart when there’s no one to take them, so anything I can do to get them adopted and into a forever home and really help them, because they do… they are probably helping you. more than you are helping them, ”Pope said.
While the company may do business and offer discounts for donations, its efforts are strictly aimed at animals.
“Knowing that these poor animals have been through this fire and how good a job they are doing, I wanted to make sure that we were supporting them in some way or another,” said Megan Johnson.
Pet Alliance said it still couldn’t understand all of the community’s support and said its rebuilding plans were already underway.
“We will be moving to a temporary space in downtown Orlando for about two years and then plan to open our new shelter on John Young Parkway in September 2023,” said Stephen Bardy.
Pet Alliance said if you haven’t been to Jared’s in Altamonte this weekend, there’s still a chance to help. This event takes place throughout the weekend, and if you can’t make it this weekend, the pet agency said anyone can still donate online.
Monetary donations can also be made online here.
