Seminole County Animal Services need Hurricane Heroes

As bad weather approaches we find ourselves with a full shelter and the knowledge that a storm will bring in many more needy animals. 

If you have room in your home and your heart we are asking only $1.00 as an adoption fee for any of our already spayed or neutered animals. 

Give a homeless pet a home through the storm and we know you will fall in love. But if you don’t for any reason we will gladly take the pet back after 

Irma passes, no questions asked.
This $1 special is valid Thursday, Friday and Saturday (September 7,8 & 9) only and on those 3 days we will also waive the $5 county license fee on 

all the already spayed or neutered animals being adopted.

Be a Hero and Adopt!! Seminole County Animal Services Adoption hours are 10-4 Monday through Saturday. For more details call 407-665-5208 or 


City of Longwood Waste Pro Scheduling-UPDATED

Waste Pro will maintain normal operations through this Friday, September 8th. All Monday, September 11th operations are CANCELLED and any other 

service disruptions will be decided as the storm moves through. As always, we will keep you updated on the City of Longwood’s website and on our social media pages.
