During the time frame that the South Care Center is closed the North Animal Care Center located at 2605 Flake Road in Titusville will maintain its normal business hours.

This is an exciting project for us and our animals that would not be possible without the partnership with Habitat For Humanity, several local businesses, our citizens, our team members, and the many donors to the “Sheriff’s Pet Posse” who have primarily funded this entire project.
