Thank you for your interest in having a donation drive to benefit Osceola County Animal Services. Donation drives provide our shelter with resources that we otherwise would not be able to obtain. These resources improve the lives and adoptability of the homeless pets in our care.
Below please information on donation drives for our shelter.
What is a donation drive?
A donation drive is a group or organization banding together to provide something that the shelter needs through an event of some type. Some examples are:
a cash donation drive
collecting new or gently used linens (twin sheets, towels)
a car wash
collecting pet food or toys
making and donating simple cat toys
Almost any group or organization that has an adult supervisor is welcome to have a donation drive for the shelter. These include, but are not limited to: school classrooms or grade levels service organizations employee or volunteer groups businesses

Due to the number of requests we receive, Osceola County Animal Services may attempt, but cannot guarantee:

The event must be promoted in a manner to avoid statements or the appearance that Osceola County Animal Services endorses any product, firm, organization, individual or service.
All promotional materials must clearly state what percentage or portion of proceeds will benefit Osceola County Animal Services.
