Our annual events

Osceola County Animal Services provides outreach and education for the community through special adoption events hosted at our shelter and informational booths at community events. We are unfortunately unable to accommodate the numerous event requests we receive. Please look for us at the following community events each year and contact us if you are interested in sponsoring an adoption event at the shelter.

Individuals with disabilities requiring accommodations in order to participate in County programs, services and activities must contact the volunteer coordinator at (407) 742-8000 or 711 for the Florida Relay System, at least seven (7) business days prior to the scheduled meeting or event to request an accommodation.
