BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey urged local residents to consider adopting a dog in a special video message on Friday due to the abundance of dogs in the Brevard County Animal Center at this time.
Sheriff Ivey says he refuses to euthanize an animal based on space and would build a bigger shelter if needed if it came to it.
The Sheriff says they have around 130 dogs in their care at this time and is pleading for residents to consider adopting a dog, rather than shop around for a dog.
The Brevard County Animal Center is a no-kill animal shelter.
Brevard County Animal Services is offering free adoptions on dogs and cats for the month of June after the contribution by Boniface Hiers Automotive Group.
The offer includes spay/neuter, a microchip, current vaccinations, free medical insurance through Trupanion and a county tag ( with an approved application).
As a reminder, the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office South Animal Care Center also offers one (1) hour obedience class each Saturday starting at 9:30am.
BCSO is asking citizens interested in the class to check-in with Care Center Staff at 9:20am.
The class is open to anyone that has adopted a dog from BCSO Animal Services, as well as community members that have made an appointment to surrender a dog to their shelter. The class focuses on basic obedience and solving minor behavior issues for your furry friend.
Since 2014 when the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office took over Animal Services in Brevard County, A.J. Hiers of Boniface Hiers Automotive Group has donated thousands and thousands of dollars to feed all of the pets in our care.
