BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – On Saturday, Space Coast Harley-Davidson and the City of Palm Bay hosted a fundraising event to benefit the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Pet Posse. The Sheriff’s Pet Posse is a not-for-profit organization that helps support our local Animal Care Centers and Shelters who work hard everyday to find forever homes for our homeless pets.

The event drew a crowd of several thousand attendees and included entertainment from numerous local bands that performed to entertain the crowd and many vendors who came to support the event.

Local event organizer, John Casey spearheaded the event by working closely with Space Coast Harley, the City of Palm Bay, the Space Post Mustang Club, and many incredible volunteers to make the event so successful.

John is a huge animal lover and wanted to bring the community together to help us reach our ultimate goal of becoming a “no kill” community.

The event also provided a great backdrop for the presentation of a check to the Pet Posse by the owners of Palm Bay Vet Clinic, Jen & Paul Sikoski. Dr. Jen presented the Pet Posse with a check for $3,700.00 from the “Bayfront K9 5K” which is held annually to help homeless pets in our community.
