The Brevard Humane Society, a leading animal welfare organization that works to end pet homelessness, is officially kicking off the 10th-anniversary of their Low-Cost Spay/Neuter & Wellness Clinic with a milestone Open House celebration on Saturday, October 26th.
Reflecting on the challenges and achievements of the past decade, Theresa Clifton, Executive Director of the Brevard Humane Society stated, “To date, over 18,480 dogs and cats in our community have been spayed/neutered as a result of our Low-Cost Spay/Neuter & Wellness Clinic. Had each of those animals been allowed to breed throughout their lifetime, they were capable of producing well over 7 million offspring that could have been homeless and unwanted.”
Preventing the birth of unwanted litters of puppies and kittens has always been a high priority for the Brevard Humane Society. They are proud to have grown their offerings to include even more innovative wellness programs, including the grant of $75,000 in free life-saving surgeries to low-income families and community cat caregivers since 2014.
The community is welcome to help celebrate their accomplishments beginning at 10am with a ribbon cutting at the Brevard Humane Society’s Low-Cost Spay/Neuter & Wellness Clinic, located directly behind their Cocoa Adoption Center at 1020 Cox Road. Festivities will continue until 2:00pm with specials on microchips ($15), nail trims, rabies vaccinations ($10) in addition to food trucks, a dog wash, Halloween costume contest, children’s activities, drawings, giveaways, and more.
