Since the start of Clifton’s tenure as Executive Director in 2004, the Central Brevard Humane Society has gone from a budget of $900,000 with 22 staff, one adoption center, two thrift shops, a flailing cremation business and an annual deficit of $250,000 in 2003, to a $2 million budget with 56 staff, two adoption centers, four thrift shops, a thriving low cost spay/neuter and wellness center, solid performing cremation business and just a bit better than breaking even bottom line in 2012.
