***Winter 2020/2021 WE ARE CAREFULLY OPEN FOR ADOPTIONS. Out of an abundance of caution for our employees and volunteers we are accepting adoptions BY APPOINTMENT. Please call us during open hours to schedule (noon to 4pm Tuesday through Saturday, noon to 3pm Sunday). An appointment must be set up with a phone conversation to review the protocol. Thank you for your continued interest in making rescue your first choice! **The Humane Society of South Brevard is an independently-run, non-profit, no-kill animal shelter. Our cats are free to roam inside our facility. We take in cats on a pre-arranged basis only and can not "make room" for new cats No paws are euthanized unless there is a medical issue affecting their quality of life. As we adopt and have space available we take in more.
All adoptions are first come, first served. We have provided this service since 1978.
We can’t guarantee that specific kitties listed here will be available to adopt by the time you visit our shelter. Petfinder is a GREAT way to view some of our available paws but there are many more in house than included on this site. If you have a question about a cat being dog or kid friendly, please come by in person and meet the kitty.

ADOPTING A FRIEND
The adoption fee is $75.00. This includes feline leukemia and FIV tests,microchip, spaying or neutering, rabies and feline distemper vaccines, and deworming. WE DO NOT adopt to homes that declaw or let their cats outside. It is against the law in Brevard County for your cat to run loose.
We also have a foster program to help with our unadoptable cats and of course you can come and visit anytime. This helps defray the cost of caring for these cats that will spend their lives with us. For more information please call 321-259-0601 AND
HOW YOU CAN HELP
We have joined Walk For A Dog!
This is an app you download to your phone and donate to the rescue of your choice every time with every step you take, everyday! You can go to their website or to the appropriate app store for your device to download it! www.wooftrax.com
Local attorney Amy B. Fossen PA and her staff are generous supporters of the HSSB. Please call 321-345-5945. They can schedule an appointment to help you create, review and update all of your legal documents and 5% of their fees will go to the Humane Society of South Brevard! It is a win-win for you and for the charity you support.
Here are some of the items WE NEED MOST: good topical flea medication like Revolution (Revolution is expensive-it is a multi purpose preventative and just a few doses from each donor would go a long way to helping our paws stay flea-free), paper towels, regular clean old bath towels, canned cat and kitten food and dry kitten food, Purina One adult and kitten dry food and cat litter, scoopable. We can also use Simple Green Cleaner or Orange Plus. We take care of many birds on the property including peacocks and can use wild bird seed and fresh peanuts. Remember everything is tax deductible
If you shop with Amazon, use Smile Amazon and specify us to receive a donation with every purchase you make. Ditto if you use Paypal! And there is a search engine like Google or Yahoo called Goodsearch. If you use www.goodsearch.com and select us we will get a donation from them at the end of the year.
We are always in need of volunteers to help care for the cats and maintain our property.
COME VISIT US!
Although there are many good animal care groups in Brevard County, and we support any and all sincere efforts to care for unwanted, abused and neglected animals, we want you to know there are differences. If you have any questions about our policies or mission, please contact us with your questions. We will be more than happy to answer them for you.

We DO NOT receive any federal, state or county funding. Although we have a small group of regular donors, this does not come close to covering what we spend on the animals. Fortunately, several members have left bequests to our Society and this has enabled us to continue our great work. Please remember the animals when you prepare your will. We have a generous donation offer from a local attorney who specializes in wills and trusts. Amy Van Fossen can plan your living will and trust and will donate 5% of your total costs to us! You may reach her at 321-345-5945. And remember, there are organizations with similar names, so please be specific in naming the Humane Society of South Brevard, Inc. We depend solely on your kindness.
