Meet The Disney Cast Member Helping Florida Pets Find Forever Homes

Paws in the Park, hosted by Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando and one of the most popular Disney VoluntEARS events of the year, took place this weekend with more than 300 Disney cast members attending the community fundraiser during its milestone 30th anniversary – including cast member Carol who has an extra special connection with the organization.

Carol adopted her dog, Moses, at the event five years ago. She has attended the fundraiser with him through Disney every year since.

“I’m so grateful that Disney gives us cast members the opportunity to volunteer and give back to our community. I would have never met Moses if not for this special event, and I’m just so thankful he came into my life five years ago. I love bringing him back to Paws in the Park every year to join our Disney team and help even more pets in Florida.”


The Walt Disney World fundraising team, also known as the “Disney Dogs,” took home the top fundraising spot once again this year, raising almost $10,000 for Florida pets in need. Disney has now officially taken home the top fundraising spot for 15 of the last 17 years. Every dollar donated has helped the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando find homes for thousands of homeless animals in Central Florida, offer low-cost veterinary care and manage animal intake at its shelters.

Walt Disney World Ambassador Shannon Smith-Conrad said, “One of the best parts of the Disney Cast Life is unique experiences we get to participate in outside of the resort and in our community. For decades, Paws in the Park has been a favorite for our cast, myself included. It’s one of the best ways to spend time together with our Florida family, all while giving back to pets that need our help.”
