In the wake of Hurricane Dorian, the Brevard Humane Society, the county’s oldest animal welfare organization, has allocated over 1,000 pounds of much-needed food to help aid agencies currently working on the front lines to rescue, relocate, feed and care for pets that have been left homeless due to flooding.
“Our thoughts are with all of the people and pets who have been impacted by Hurricane Dorian,” said Theresa Clifton, Executive Director of the Brevard Humane Society. “We know that so many have been affected by this disastrous storm, and we wanted to help in whatever way possible. We’re committed to supporting everyone we can, who has been impacted by this disaster, including pets and pet parents staying in evacuation centers and shelters who may not have access to the pet food and essentials they need. We hope that by supplying dog and cat food, it’ll mean one less thing for families to worry about as they attempt to return to their homes and communities.”
When Hurricane Dorian hit the Bahamas a week ago, the Brevard Humane Society connected with local animal welfare partner, SPCA of Titusville, Keep Brevard Beautiful, and Pet Pros of Rockledge & Melbourne to help facilitate over a thousand pounds of donated pet food and needed accessories to pets impacted by the storm.
The Brevard Humane Society hopes to continue their relief efforts by serving as a collection location for much needed pet supplies such as: dog/cat food, pet treats, leashes/collars, litter/litter pans, and puppy pads. Donations can be sent or brought directly to their Cocoa Adoption Center located at 1020 Cox Road in Cocoa.
