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.

Special Adoption Events at our St. Cloud facility:

Annual Community Appreciation Day Outdoor Festival:

This event, which has been moved to November, draws a big crowd each year! It is an outdoor event at the shelter with food, fun, crafts, prize drawings, music, animal training demonstrations, local businesses, rescue partners, and animal adoptions. Don’t forget to ask about our kid’s mini veterinarian camp. It’s a great event for animal lovers of all ages!
