/ Hello, I am sweet Madeline, a new arrival here. I am a super sweet and mellow girl, just looking for love and a home. Sometimes there is a look in a cat's eyes that lets you know they are special...and I am one of those felines. If you have stumbled on my profile and are looking for a new family member...please come meet me. No fancy story or quotes here...I think my picture speaks for itself. I am at the Humane Society of South Brevard and you can stop in Wednesday through Sunday, noon to 4pm. Sundays we close at 3pm. It is a great idea to bring you own carrier with you in case you find the purrfect set of paws and are approved to adopt the same day!

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. 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.

And now to interrupt your reading with a memorial...

A member made a donation recently in memory of their much loved senior paws. Angel was an amazing 20 years old when she crossed the rainbow bridge. We are grateful Angel's family thought of us in their sadness and wish them all the best-we understand the difficulty of the loss of a sweet, long time presence.


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 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.

There is a search engine like Google or Yahoo called Goodsearch. If you use 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.


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.
