May 6th, 2024 – The Brevard Humane Society is excited to announce the return of Cinco de Critters! Now in its twelfth year, this community event, set for Wednesday, May 8, 2024, at Chaparral Mexican Grill, 1341 N.

We invite everyone in the community and animal enthusiasts to join us from 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. for some festive Cinco de Mayo fun and to support our mission to enhance animal care in Brevard County.

Cinco de Critters isn’t just a fundraiser—it’s a celebration of our community’s commitment to animal welfare. Enjoy the “Yappy Hour” from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m., featuring a selection of themed cocktails designed to delight, including the crowd-favorites “Paw-some Sangria,” “Bark-a-Rita,” and “Rover’s Brewski.” The festivities continue with a silent auction starting at 4:00 p.m., where 10% of all sales will be donated to help us achieve our goal of supporting homeless animals.

Although we adore our four-legged friends, please note that dogs are not permitted on the restaurant premises to ensure everyone’s comfort and safety.

Since its establishment in 1952, the Brevard Humane Society in Cocoa, Florida, has been a beacon of hope. Located at 1020 Cox Rd, Cocoa, FL 32926, our shelter continues its mission to rescue, rehabilitate, and find homes for animals. In February 2024 alone, we successfully rescued and rehomed 135 animals. Our comprehensive approach to animal care offers many solutions such as the opportunity to adopt declawed cats and for dog surrender nearby.

Brevard County is among the top performers in Florida for quality of pet and animal life, boasting a 91% live release rate, while our shelter achieves a remarkable 96%.

The Brevard Humane Society has embarked on a formidable campaign and has successfully raised $2.4 million of its $3 million goal. Our objective is to rebuild our facilities, enhancing our capacity to care for and shelter even more animals in need. With $600,000 left to raise, your support can make a significant difference.

Join us on May 8th at Chaparral Mexican Grill for a day of food, fun, and charity. Your participation in Cinco de Critters will significantly aid our ongoing efforts to provide homeless animals with love, care, and permanent homes. Together, we can ensure a brighter future for many animals in need.
