BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office would like to introduce our community to our two newest crime fighting K-9s ‘Boyd’ and ‘Jenks’.
The two brothers are 10 weeks old Bloodhounds who were recently donated to our agency by the Jimmy Ryce Foundation to replace two of our Bloodhound K-9s that are being retired from service in the very near future.
The two beautiful pups are being named in honor of our Animal Care Center Veterinarians, Dr. Sarah Boyd (right) and Dr. Christine Jenkins (left) who not only take care of all of our agency K-9s, but also oversee the care and treatment of all of Brevard County’s homeless pets.
‘Boyd’ and ‘Jenks’ have already started training to search for missing children and seniors with Alzheimer’s and Dementia and will also be utilized for presentations at schools and other community events throughout Brevard.
I would like to personally thank the Jimmy Ryce Foundation for all the do to support Law Enforcement agencies across the country and for their passion to help keep children safe in our communities.
And of course, a huge ‘Thank You’ to Dr. Boyd and Dr. Jenkins for all they do to take care of our agency K-9’s and homeless pets throughout Brevard County.
They and their team are truly amazing and one of the reasons our Animal Services Team is so successful!
– Sheriff Wayne Ivey
