BCSO, Sheriff Wayne Ivey Update Status On Dog Injured In Animal Cruelty Incident
By WAYNE IVEY, BREVARD SHERIFF // January 28, 2017
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – On Friday, our Animal Cruelty Unit was contacted by the owners of “Lillie” who is the little dog that was significantly injured in a horrific act of Animal Cruelty on January 20.
The family asked that our agency share the following personal message from them with our community:
“Lillie’s family would like the public to know that Lillie is recovering from surgery after the incident. The family appreciates the outpouring of concern and prayers for her during this difficult time.
The family would particularly like to thank Sheriff Wayne Ivey, Deputy Scragg and his team at Brevard County Sheriff’s Office, as well as the Orange County Sheriff’s Office for the work they have done for our family.”
As Sheriff, I would like to also thank our community for their support for our team, for Lillie’s owners, and the owners of the facility where the incident occurred.
As I always say, “it takes a community to protect a community” and this case is a perfect example of doing just that!
