BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA, FLORIDA – Good friends are hard to find, but there’s a place in Cocoa where residents can easily find best friends forever who offer love and devotion unconditionally.
The Central Brevard Humane Society is a “no kill for space” animal shelter dedicated to speaking for those who cannot speak for themselves
Under the direction of executive director Theresa Clifton, the shelter was founded in 1952 and is Brevard County’s oldest animal care organization.
Over the years, thousands have found “new best friends” at the Central Brevard Humane Society, which serves to educate the public about responsible pet ownership and the humane treatment of animals.
It’s an advocate for spaying and neutering to help bring down gthe homeless pet population. The shelter strives to offer the best possible care to Brevard’s abandoned animals and find them “forever homes.”
To make it even easier to adopt pets, the Central Brevard Humane society has partnered with the Brevard County Animal Services & Enforcement agency to provide residents low-cost feline spaying and neutering services for just $20 up to a maximum of four per household.
The $20 fee includes a physical examination and the spay/neuter surgery.
A rabies vaccine is required prior to the surgery and is $10 for pets, but waived for feral cats.
The program is made possible through sales of the “Official Florida Animal Friend” spay and neuter license plate.
To take advantage of the program, call the Central Brevard Humane Society at 321-636-3343, ext. 206. The shelter is at 1020 Cox Road in Cocoa.
