BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The aftermath of Hurricane Florence has left many homeless pets needing safe refuge, including pets that were in South Carolina shelters prior to the storm.
With the influx of new animals coming to these shelters, the lives of pets that had been there prior to the storm are in danger.
The SPCA of Brevard and Brevard Humane Society are teaming up to save the lives of dogs in two South Carolina Shelters this week in both Sumter and Manning South Carolina.
“Florida knows what it’s like to be hit by a major storm and to struggle,” said SPCA executive director Angie Friers.
“We are happy to have the means to help out these other shelters. Teaming up with the Brevard Humane Society to go get these dogs is lifesaving teamwork at its finest!”

The two organizations will be leaving Thursday morning and returning on Friday with dogs from two separate shelters.
All dogs will receive full veterinary care and be spayed or neutered by either the SPCA or the Humane Society before being placed for adoption.
“The dogs we will be taking were at these shelters prior to the storm, and we will be making room at those shelters for new refugees by bringing these pets back with us,” said Humane Society executive director Theresa Clifton.
