Animal Guardians of Brevard was formed to promote responsible, lifetime pet guardianship through education, counseling, and accessible, affordable sterilization.  We strive to increase awareness of companion animal overpopulation and promote or participate in any activities that will improve the well-being of homeless, neglected, abandoned, and unwanted animals. 


Animal Guardians of Brevard   exists to see that one day every companion animal born will have the lifetime, loving home s/he deserves in a world with No More Homeless Pets.  

The primary focus of Animal Guardians of Brevard is to promote and provide Spaying and Neutering for cats and dogs, and we have arranged and funded sterilization of nearly 6000 animalsPLEASE HELP US CONTINUE THIS WORK and donate today. 


 We were the first, and are one of the ONLY, programs in Brevard whose primary mission is to provide financial assistance for eligible pet guardians to get their pets sterilized.  YOU CAN SAVE LIVES THROUGH US WITH A DONATION.  998% of our contributions go DIRECTLY to fund this work.   PLEASE make a donation today by contacting us, or through safe, secure  


PLEASE NOTE:  Animal Guardians of Brevard is NOT a shelter and we do not have animals directly in our care.  Therefore we cannot accept any animals.  We also cannot find new homes for animals unless they are already in shelters. 

We support progressive efforts to humanely manage all the animals discarded or abandoned in our county and the nation.  We support proactive measures taken by all area shelters and rescues to mitigate the problem by promoting sterilization, increasing adoptions, decreasing euthanasia, and moving our county toward NO KILL.  

The Brevard County-run Animal Care and Adoption Centers (South-SACC, North-NACC) are Brevard's largest shelters and are open-admission (kill) shelters, accepting any animal, from any source, for any reason, at any time.  They are always very overcrowded with healthy, friendly cats and dogs in desperate need of safe, loving homes.  PLEASE open your heart and your home to an animal in dire need.  Save a life.

See Adoptable Animals from SACC and NACC on Petfinder


Shelter animals are also be available for adoption at Aloha Pet and Bird Hospital at   968 E. Eau Gallie Blvd. on the beach (321-777-6444). 




All local shelters always needs foster caregivers for dogs and cats.  TO HELP SAVE LIVES, please visit the SPCA of North Brevard, or SACC or NACC to complete a foster application and get more details.  

This mother cat got lucky and someone fostered her and her tiny babies until they could find homes.  But afterward, mothers often do not find forever homes of their own.  They are frequently nearly babies themselves.   Many mothers with tiny kittens, orphan kittens and puppies too small to survive, and other cats and dogs are in desperate need of foster care and permanent homes.   Please give them a chance.  Be a foster caregiver.

Animal Guardians of Brevard is honored to be the recipient of a generous donation from the estate of Ranada Pedersen.   Ranada was a true lover of homeless cats and a long-time supporter of Animal Guardians.  Her final gift will be used to sterilize some of the stray cats for whom she cared so much.  We extend our deepest sympathy to those who knew and cared for this thoughtful lady.  In her memory, many lives will be saved and the birth and suffering of hundreds of homeless, abandoned, and unwanted cats will be prevented.  We are honored to be entrusted with this gift.  

Animal Guardians of Brevard is honored to be the recipient of a very generous donation from the estate of Mr. William Townsend.  Mr. Townsend’s final gift will save the lives and prevent the birth and suffering of thousands of homeless, abandoned, and unwanted animals.  Mr. Townsend was a devoted animal lover throughout his life.  In his later years he could not have pets,  Instead, he gave generously of his time and love to Brevard’s less fortunate dogs and cats as a volunteer at his local animal shelter.   We extend our deepest sympathy to those who knew and cared for this thoughtful gentleman.  Such kindness makes the world a better place for everyone, especially the animals for whom Mr. Townsend cared so much.

"No Kill" STARTS with No Birth.

Those of us involved with Animal Guardians of Brevard appreciate the strength of the pet-person bond and the devastating effects loss of a pet can have.  Our sympathy is with all who have lost a cherished companion and we have dedicated a PET LOSS page to the beloved pets of those who have suffered such a loss.
