BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – A Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Animal Enforcement Officer was dispatched earlier this month to assist an injured dog that had been located in a ditch in Palm Bay and was unable to walk.

The Animal Enforcement Officer transported the dog to the Animal Emergency and Critical Care Center of Brevard where it was evaluated for the extent of injuries.

The dog was then taken to the South Animal Care Center where it was placed in isolation allowing for a quiet area to heal from the extensive injuries.

Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Rescue Coordinator, Deputy Ed Becht, contacted Kristin Livan of Unwantednycpets.org and she agreed to provide the injured dog with a wheeled cart to aid the dog in mobility and quality of life.

Kristin also graciously agreed to foster the dog who was immediately named “Faith.”
