BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA — On Sunday, April 12, 80 Cats from the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Animal Care Centers were transported to Waldorf, Maryland as part of a new partnership with the “Last Chance Sanctuary” where they will be available for adoption to forever homes.

BCSO-STAR-180The trip, was funded by the Brevard Sheriff’s Pet Posse and was made possible because of our new partnership with the Last Chance Animal Sanctuary.

The cats were transported in their pet carriers by volunteers Jean and Sam Sommerville who volunteered to make the 12 hour drive to make sure the animals have an opportunity to be adopted into new families.

The trip was also made possible because of the incredible work of our many volunteers who dedicate their time, energy, and passion to help get animals from our Care Centers adopted.

Our volunteers collected pet carriers and helped prepare the cats for the trip to make sure they were fully prepared for the 12 hour drive.

Please join me in congratulating our Animal Services Team and Volunteers who continue to do amazing things to positively change the lives of all the animals in our Care Centers.
