As part of our continued commitment to our customers and our furry friends, we completed an upgrade to the Animals Services software this week. As part of this, we brought historical data into the new program and found that some of the information did not migrate correctly. The result of the data conversion shows pets on our site that are no longer available. We are working to correct the problem and ask that you be patient with us during this time.
The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office South Animal Care Center offers a one (1) hour obedience class each Saturday starting at 9:30am. Check-In with Care Center Staff at 9:20am.
The class will be open to anyone that has adopted a dog from us, as well as community members that have made an appointment to surrender a dog to our shelter.
The class will focus on basic obedience and solving minor behavior issues.
