       Lucy & Desi

/ I love Lucy and she loves me, we're as happy as two can be. Hello there, we are Lucy and Desi, a match made in heaven who arrived here together recently. I'm Desi, the current spokesman for us. I am the bobtail and both of us are almost completely white with a few splashes of grey. There is absolutely no way we can imagine ever being separated-so we have to find a home as a couple. We're not really a couple-more like the sleep in separate twin sized beds of the 1950s kind of duo. But we are completely bonded and find comfort in each other in this new place. It seems like the other paws do not bother us, so we could either go to a home with other felines or as a brand new start for someone who would like just two cats. We come pre-introduced! So think of us, Team Arnaz-and remember: life is heaven you see, cause I Love Lucy and she loves me! You can stop by to meet us Wednesday through Sunday, noon to 4pm (3pm on Sundays). We recommend you bring TWO carriers, or one really big one-so if you fall in love with us and are approved-you can adopt us on 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. 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...

I am a girl whose fortune has changed! My name is Sybil and I had been at the Humane Society for a long, long time. So sweet and pretty, everyone was sure I would find a home. But other paws came and went...and here I stayed. Then I developed an allergy on my skin-something that would go away once I found a home, but here it was hard to manage. Although still pretty, it seemed that I was overlooked even more. One day a very nice lady came in to adopt a cat. I greeted her-just like I used to do when I still had hope of finding a home. She looked past my not so pretty fur and saw my loving, quiet soul-and knew. This wonderful person knew that not many people would recognize the beautiful little girl I am and that I may have only this one chance to have a forever home. And so she adopted me. This is the kind of story that makes everyone have hope for all the tails here-we can all be Happy Tails if only the right person would come in and make it the very best story for us all.

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.


Here are some of the items WE NEED MOST: PAPER TOWELS , WE NEED FILE CABINETS, ANY SIZE Also 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. ALSO NEWSPAPER NOT SHREDDED..

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.
