BCFR Receives Pet Microchip Scanner Donation from SPCA of Brevard



BREVARD COUNTY, FL. – On July 2, the SPCA of Brevard, in collaboration with the Brevard Kennel Club, generously provided Brevard County Fire Rescue with pet microchip scanners. This initiative aims to enhance the reunification efforts for lost pets in the area.

Now, if a lost pet is found in Brevard County, community members can visit any Brevard County Fire Station to use a microchip scanner and help reunite the pet with its family as quickly as possible. Fire stations serve as an excellent resource, especially after hours or on weekends when shelters might be closed. The Brevard Kennel Club sponsored 22 out of the 33 scanners needed for the fire rescue stations.

Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey attended the event with Junny, to demonstrate the new devices to staff members. Sheriff Ivey emphasized the importance of having a plan for your pets during hurricane season and for this weekend’s holiday festivities, as many pets are frightened by fireworks.
