Election Day is November 3
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey announced he received an endorsement from the SPCA of Brevard Executive Director Angie Friers.
”As an animal welfare professional who has been involved with the care of animals in Brevard County and the State of Florida for over 15 years, I’ve seen many things happen at county shelters when the folks in charge don’t care. I’m happy to say that isn’t the case in Brevard County.
Since the sheriff took over operations at our county shelter in 2014, their live release rate jumped from 55% to 95% within 18 months. It is a travesty to think that only 55 animals out of 100 were making it out alive back then – the hard work of Sheriff Ivey and his team over the past five years has saved the lives of thousands of animals in Brevard.
I work closely with animal control on a daily basis and can say that I’ve never worked with a more dedicated and compassionate sheriff. Animal welfare has come a long way in Brevard County over the past six years and with the reelection of Sheriff Wayne Ivey, it’s only going to get better for the animals that call our county home. Because of that I am proud to personally endorse for Brevard County Sheriff in the 2020 election, Sheriff Wayne Ivey. “
Sheriff Ivey was humbled by Friers’ endorsement.
“Tonight I am proud, humbled, and touched to release the endorsement of Angie Friers, one of Brevard County’s most effective animal advocates who has been in the animal welfare profession for over 15 years!!
To have Angie standing with me in our mission to protect pets in Brevard County and to have earned her respect and unwavering trust to lead the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Animal Services Team, means the world to me.
As an Executive Director in the Animal Welfare industry who has worked at both the state and local level, Angie knows exactly what it takes to run Animal Services and also has been part of the transformation that took Brevard County Animal Services from a deeply concerning 55% live release rate to a “No Kill” Shelter. I am extremely grateful to Angie for all she does to save the lives of homeless pets in our community and to have her endorsement to continue serving as Brevard County’s Sheriff!!”
