Patrick M. Fox has found a true passion in his “second career,” as the executive director of the SPCA of North Brevard Fox oversees two animal facilities, including a high tech surgical clinic and the operation of the SPCA’s thrift store. After working for the postal service for 30 years Fox says, “I have found a job that brings me true fulfillment and provides a level of satisfaction that I could never attain in my first career.”
The SPCA of North Brevard offers low cost spay/neuter, low cost vaccinations and reduced fee veterinary services for over 8,000 clients a year. Last year over 5,000 animals were spayed or neutered.
The adoption facility placed nearly 800 animals in forever homes last year and took in nearly 850. While maintaining a euthanasia rate of virtually zero, “We work exceptionally hard to assure that any animal turned over to us for adoption has the best possible chance of getting a new home,” Fox says.
“We pride ourselves on educating our adopters and our clinic clients. Our two veterinarians place a high value on client education and take the time to ensure our clients leave with the best possible advice on keeping their pets healthy.”
The adoption facility at 455 Cheney Highway in Titusville is open 7 days a week and is currently expanding into the building adjacent, which was recently purchased for a cat/administrative building. This will allow for an expansion of the current adoption location to provide more dog space and will also allow some customer improvements in the clinic.
Fox has lived in Titusville for 22 years, originally relocating for a postal management career.
“Working at the SPCA of North Brevard has truly been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life and continues to provide me joy every day.”
