BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Earlier this week, Cole, Virginia and Charlotte Lacey came to our South Animal Care Center to present a donation for $200.

BCSO-STAR-180The three had worked together to sell hot chocolate and cookies on Valentine’s Day so they could raise money to help care for the animals at our facility.

Our team members were truly touched by this very generous donation and act of compassion by these incredible kids who worked together to make a difference in the lives of our animals.

I would like to personally thank Cole, Virginia and Charlotte Lacey for taking the initiative to do something to help others in need and for understanding the importance of giving back to their community.
