BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Recently we announced that adoptions for the month of December at the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Animal Care Centers are only $35, thanks to a generous donation from Mr. A.J. Hiers of Boniface Hiers Automotive Group.

We hope that many families are able to take advantage of this special opportunity, but also want to remind you that the gift of a live animal can potentially end in tragedy if not done in the right way.

Everyone who gives a pet as a gift has good intentions as we all know how much joy animals bring to our lives and we want to share that joy with other people. However, it is important to remember that their faithful companionship also comes with a great deal of responsibility.

Adding a family member means a long-term commitment of time, money, and energy that may exceed the recipient’s expectations and abilities.

Puppies and kittens are adorable but most will live 10-15 years and will require food, veterinary care, grooming expenses, toys, bedding and boarding/pet sitting costs, as well as considerable time to train, play with, exercise, and care for the pet.

Unfortunately, it is not uncommon that pets received as gifts are later surrendered to shelters. It is essential that anyone welcoming a new pet to the family has an opportunity to meet the pet first & ensure that it is a good fit for their personality, lifestyle and resources.

If you want to give an animal as a gift, consider wrapping a photograph and a “gift certificate” for a pet instead of presenting a live animal. You could also give a basket of needed items, such as a collar, leash, toys etc. and an I.O.U. for the pet itself.

Everyone loves the image of a puppy or kitten under the tree on Christmas morning, but it is a hectic time filled with distractions and dangers even for established family members. Waiting a few days could make an enormous positive difference for everyone!

As always, we hope you consider adopting a family pet from one of our Animal Care Centers or other Private Animal Care Centers throughout Brevard County however a successful adoption requires time, planning and careful consideration.
