Partnership Facilitated 29 Dogs Being Transported To Maine Where They Will Be Available For Adoption

BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Our Animal Services Unit furthered a newly created partnership recently to provide dogs from our Animal Care Centers to the Coastal Humane Society from the state of Maine.

BCSO-STAR-180The initial partnership facilitated 29 dogs being transported from our North and South Facilities to Brunswick, Maine where they will be available for adoption to new forever homes.

The partnership was originally initiated by a volunteer who made contact with Coastal Humane Society and then worked with our Rescue Coordinator, Deputy Ed Becht.

The trip was funded by the ASPCA who also provided two of their employees to come pick up the dogs and stay with them throughout their trip to Maine.

We are very excited about this newly developed partnership and are looking forward to many more similar efforts.

I would like to thank our volunteers for everything they do for our agency and to make this partnership a reality.

I would also like to thank Deputy Becht for his continued dedication as our Rescue Coordinator.
