Animal Services

Welcome to the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Animal Services and Enforcement

The Sheriff’s Office assumed responsibility of Animal Services and Enforcement to include the North and South Animal Shelters for Brevard County on October 1st. This is a unique opportunity for the Sheriff’s Office to provide a service that directly benefits everyone involved. This partnership will bring stability and efficiency to a very critical community function and a second chance at a loving home to some of our less fortunate pets.

The partnership design combines and enhances existing efforts and resources such as our therapy dog program and our Paws and Stripes initiative. Animal Control efforts directly relate to public safety, whether by dangerous, diseased, abused, neglected, lost, or even licensing of pets. Assuming the responsibility of Animal Services extends our primary function for Brevard County, which is the safety of our citizens and well-being of our communities.

I truly can’t thank each of our members enough for all they do to protect our community. They continually rise to every challenge and have conceived and implemented some of the most innovative programs in the country. This new era in the history of our agency truly demonstrates our willingness to serve our citizens in any capacity we can, to help keep Brevard County one of the best places in the country to call home.

On behalf of our agency I can’t thank you enough for your incredible support! I am honored to serve as your Sheriff and to have the opportunity to work alongside the outstanding men and women of the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff Wayne Ivey
