“I am proud to announce that tomorrow morning, at 10:30 A.M., we will unveil our new Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Animal Services Sign at the South County Animal Care Center at 5100 West Eau Gallie Boulevard, Melbourne. The unveiling will also include the announcement of our latest initiative, The “Sheriff’s Pet Posse” that will engage our community in helping to protect our animals.

The Sheriff’s Office assumed countywide Animal Service Enforcement and Shelter operations on October 1, 2014. This includes the South County Animal Care Center in Melbourne and the North Animal Care Center in Titusville.

In addition to the sign, I am pleased to announce our newest program, The Animal Services Pet Posse Program! A concept built upon the foundation of our incredible community members who truly possess a sense of caring for public good and focus on quality of life. Members of our “Sheriff’s Pet Posse” will help support our Animal Services initiative through volunteering, networking, and financial contributions.

I am proud to introduce you to the founding members of our Posse, AJ Hiers of the Boniface Hiers Automotive Group Melbourne & Merritt Island, Stephen C. Charpentier of the Charpentier Law Firm PA, and Scott and Kim Glover. Without question, their charitable contributions and volunteering will relieve the pains of thousands of abused and neglected animals for years to come.

Just as an example of the incredible level of charitable commitment, AJ Hiers has volunteered to provide annual funding to fully support the food and nutrient supplies for all of the pets in the care of our shelters. The magnitude of AJ’s generosity as well as the other members of our Sheriff’s Pet Posse is truly amazing, and clearly demonstrates their passion for our community and compassion for animals in need.

Your Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Animal Services and Shelters serve a vital role in our communities, and is now a caring and safe environment for our pets that need and deserve a second chance for a loving home. Our Sheriff’s Office personnel and volunteers are highly committed to the animals they serve, yet are faced with many needs and few resources. This is where the Sheriff’s Pet Posse steps up as heroes to save the day for so many pets awaiting immediate care and adoption.

By joining the Posse, you become a guardian to create a meaningful change in every way possible, from providing care and response to animals in crisis to creating a culture of support that may one day lead to the prevention of abuse, neglect and distress. By joining, you will improve the lives of animals by providing the funds for food, medication, vaccinations, exercise, visiting and healthy enrichment areas, laundry, bedding, and cleaning supplies. Your generous contributions will support the Shelters where so many are awaiting adoption, emergency rescue efforts, relocation, offsite adoption events and veterinary healthcare.

There are so many ways you can support your Animal Service programs and services to help homeless animals get a second chance! Your donation goes directly to helping thousands of animals. To become a member of our Sheriff’s Pet Posse or to help support our Animal Service Program, please contact our Animal Services Community Outreach Coordinator, Corporal Tracey Wisner at
