Reclaiming a Lost Pet

In order to identify and reclaim your lost pet from the Brevard Humane Society, our requirements include:

  • Owners should bring proof of ownership such as veterinary records, adoption contract, or bill of sale when coming to reclaim their pets.
  • *Dog owners must bring written proof of a current dog license for the area in which they live.
  • **An impound fee of $35 in addition to any vaccinations/tests will be charged.
  • If testing or vaccinations were necessary an additional boarding fee of $5 per day will be applied.

*If the owner does not have a current dog license then they must bring a copy of their rabies vaccination certificate and apply for a license prior to taking the dog home. The license fee is $10 for a one year license.

**Should the owner wish to microchip their pet, the Brevard Humane Society will waive the impound fee of $35 and charge $25 (plus a $2.00 biohazard fee) for the microchip.

Please note that according to Brevard County, the animal shelter is not required to return a dog to its owner until the rabies vaccination is current and a County license is paid for.
