Come with us to the Emerald City...
Cocoa, Florida (PRWEB) January 14, 2015
Kick up your ruby slippers with animal lovers to enjoy dinner, live entertainment, dancing and silent auction at the SPCA of Brevard’s 5th annual Dancing for the Paws: The Wonderful Wizard of Pawz on Saturday, February 7, 2015 at the Space Coast Convention Center at I-95 and SR520 in Cocoa. Doors open at 7 pm where guests will be greeted by characters from the Wizard of Oz as well as some of the SPCA’s adoptable “munchkins.”
Tickets are $50 and can be purchased at http://www.spcabrevard.com or at the SPCA Adoption Center located at 6035 Sisson Road in Titusville. Proceeds benefit the SPCA of Brevard, which is the largest no-kill rescue group in the county.
In addition to being a true no-kill shelter, the SPCA has assumed a leadership role in working with Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Animal Services to make the entire county a no-kill community. Realizing the dream of saving all healthy, treatable animals can and will be achieved with the help from the entire community.
Part of the SPCA’s commitment to saving lives involves transferring animals whose “time is up” at the County shelters into our shelter and placing them up for adoption. It found homes for nearly 2300 homeless animals in 2014 via satellite cat adoption centers at the Melbourne Square and Merritt Square Malls, a newly renovated 11,000 square foot adoption facility in Titusville and organizing two Community Mega Adoption Events.
