By Wayne Ivey, Brevard County Sheriff // February 16, 2016
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – This past week A.J. Hiers of Boniface Hiers officially presented our agency with a check in excess of $3,000 that covered the cost of animal adoptions during the month of December 2015 at our Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Animal Care Centers.
In late November, Boniface Hiers agreed to donate money to pay for all of the adoptions at our Animal Care Centers during the month of December.
AJ has been an incredible supporter of our agency and efforts to adopt out pets and wanted to make sure that anyone who wanted an incredible family pet for the holidays had an opportunity to do so.
Please join me in thanking AJ and the team at Boniface Hiers for their incredible generosity and compassion for animals in our community.
