BREVARD COUNTY, Fl. – Brevard County Jail Sheriff Wayne Ivey said that they have a new program to help both homeless dogs and inmates in the county.
The inmates will be spending the 4th of July evening comforting dogs at the Animal Care Center. Sheriff Ivey said that citizens have contacted their agency asking to volunteer to help the frightened dogs during the fireworks. “While we greatly appreciate the offer of assistance and truly love the fact that our community partners with us to help our homeless pets, our agency has designed a new program that will not only help our dogs but will also help add purpose to the lives of inmates incarcerated at the Brevard County Jail,” Sheriff Ivey said.
Chain Gang and other working crews will be used to comfort the dogs by reading to them, playing with them, and offering them treats during the peak hours of the 4th of July celebration. The goal of the program is to help calm dogs and also instill a sense of purpose and compassion in the inmates. The hopes would be in order to prepare them for the transition back into society upon release.
“I want to personally thank everyone who offered to spend their 4th of July evening comforting our homeless pets, as we are truly blessed to have such amazing support from our community,” added Brevard County Sheriff Ivey.
