Oh, am I sad. I know, not a great introduction but I really want to tell you how badly I need to find a home. My name is Pumpkin and I was left here recently without any information. We can tell that I must have had a decent home as I am super healthy, but it can't have been that wonderful since I was abandoned without any planning. As sweet and friendly as can be, I am a great representative of a wonderful orange tabby soul. When people come to visit and give me attention it makes me very happy-but to truly find joy again I want to find my forever family soon. I seem to be an adult and will probably make a calm and affectionate lap cat-all my crazy kitten years are behind me. If you are hoping for an experienced, loving set of paws, I truly believe I will be the wonderful addition you are looking for. Come by and meet me, the real Great Pumpkin. Please give me a call at 321-259-0601. You can come and meet me Wednesday through Sunday between noon and 4pm (just until 3pm on Sundays).

The Humane Society of South Brevard is an independently-run, non-profit, no-kill animal shelter. We DO NOT euthanize ANY animal unless their quality of life would suffer due to major medical problems. Our cats are free to roam inside our facility. We always strive to provide individual attention to all of our animals until they can be placed in caring, loving, lifetime homes. We have provided this service since 1978. In the unlikely event you find the pet you have adopted does not quite fit into your family, we will always take our cats back.
We take in cats on a pre-arranged basis only. Since we are a no kill shelter we do not "make room" for new cats. As we adopt and have space available we take in more.


We DO NOT receive any federal, state or county funding. With only several hundred members, dues do 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.

And now to interrupt your reading with a Happy Tail...

Hi Friends! My name is Catch and I am soooo lucky to be here at the Humane Society of South Brevard! A woman phoned here and told the nice people that I was alone in my house without any food. The lady had the key to the house but was petrified of cats and could not come in-even though I would not hurt a flea, if I had any, which I don't. When the Humane Society ladies came, they found I had only a loaf of bread to eat for 5 days and had to drink from the toilet bowl. It was like being in kitty jail! I was kind of scared when the ladies put me in a carrier and took me out to the car, but they were really nice. We went right to the doctor so he could check me out. He said I was in good shape, not dehydrated or anything. The doc thought I was handsome and I think the ladies did, too. So we had to get me neutered ( what ever that means; they won't tell me-but I cannot remember a day about a week ago and have been feeling really mellow ever since). And I know I had my shots and got a microchip, so now I am ready to find a new home. I was given a second chance for a great life-and am so sweet and loving with everyone who comes to see me; I am the most grateful cat in the room! Five years young, I would make a terrific addition to your family. Give us a call at 321-259-0601 and ask about the best time to stop by.

We currently have many wonderful cats available for adoption. The fee is $75.00. This fee 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 Co. for your cat to run loose and of course there are many dangerous things they can get into outdoors. .


We also have a foster program to help with our unadoptable cats, for a small fee of $8.00 per month we will send you a picture and bio of the cat of your choice 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 HOW YOU CAN HELP There are many ways you can help our organization. Here's how.

We are always in need of volunteers to help care for the cats and maintain our property.


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.
