Who We Are

The South Animal Care and Adoption Center is located in Melbourne, FL. We are one of the centers operated by the Brevard County Sheriff's Office. We are committed to building lifelong bonds between people and animals through education, community outreach programs and the prevention of cruelty. We dedicate ourselves to providing prompt, professional services to the citizens and animals of our community. One of our primary goals is to protect the public from stray or dangerous animals. We are devoted to the prevention of cruelty to animals by operating an animal care center for homeless, abandoned and unwanted animals; by operating an adoption center for healthy animals; by investigating cruelty and abuse cases; and by educating the public with information on animal ownership responsibilities. Brevard County Sheriff Office Animal Services envisions a time when our community celebrates the human-animal bond; embraces the mutual benefits therein; and treats all living beings with care, compassion and respect.

Adopting a pet friend

Hours Open to Public:

Adoptions end 30 minutes prior to closing.

Adoption Fees (includes spay/neuter, microchip, rabies vaccine (if of age) and registration tag):

The adoption fee helps to off-set a portion of the costs we incur for spaying and neutering, vet examination, rabies vaccination, first shots, deworming, microchip and county license tag. Dogs six months and over are confirmed to be heartworm negative. Cats four months and over are negative for feline leukemia and feline aids. Kittens under four months are tested for feline leukemia, only.

Brevard County Yearly Registration/License Tags

$10.00 - If your pet is a puppy/kitten *which means under a year* or is already fixed.
$16.00 - If your dog or cat is an intact adult.
Pajama Pups is one of our newest canine enrichment programs designed to improve the overall well being of dogs housed in Brevard County Animal Shelters. Pajama Pup Partners are individuals that once approved can retrieve a dog from one of our shelters in the evening for a “doggie sleepover”. To read more click on the picture to the left.

Becoming a Pajama Pup Partner is easy. All partners must first be approved by filling out a foster application. This can be done at one of our shelter locations.
