There are so many things I love about living in Orlando and for me one of the top things is we love animals and we certainly love our pets! So it does not surprise me that the City Beautiful came in second on a list of the Top Pet Friendly Cities!

Wallethub.com study ranked ciities based on metrics such as veterinary-care costs, pet businesses per capita and animal shelters per capita.

I know here at SUNNY FM, along with our sister stations, we help bring awareness to pet shelters and help find 'fur-ever' homes for all of these pets with A Cause For Paws

I rescued one of these doggies in 2017. She was surrendered along with the rest of the litter. They were kept in a closet and extremely underweight. Natti was so underweight they thought she was much younger. I was told 4 months. She weighed 11 pounds. After her first visit to our vet, he said all her teeth are in and she is closer to 7 months. Proud to say my little girl is now healthy and getting braver every day.
