How to Contact Brevard County Animal Control Using DoNotPay
In Florida, a dog owner is completely liable when their dog bites someone unprovoked. Unlike many other states in the US, which have a one-bite rule that only imposes liability on a dog owner if their dog attacks more than once, Florida has no such rule. If you have been bitten or attacked by another person's dog, you must report it to the police and local animal control. In some cases, you may also seek compensation for the attack.
Brevard County Animal Control works hard to control the spread of rabies and other diseases from dog bites and other animal-related injuries. It's important to notify them and file a report when an animal has injured you so they can test for these diseases. With the help of DoNotPay, you can easily and painlessly share your incident information with us, and we'll work on filing your report with Brevard County Animal Control on your behalf.

Rabies is a dangerous and infectious disease spread through the saliva of infected animals. It is one of the oldest diseases known to man and exists almost everywhere in the world.

If you have recently suffered a dog bite or another animal-related injury, it is vital that you report it as soon as possible. However, we understand that the nature of this kind of incident can be traumatic. The task of reporting your animal-related injury may feel daunting or stressful. Fortunately, DoNotPay can help relieve some of the stress of this experience and help you get started on filing an animal-related injury report on your behalf while you recuperate from your injury.
Because Florida does not have a one-bite rule for dogs and dog owners, you may be entitled to compensation after a dog bite happens, even if it is the first time the dog has bitten someone. If you can prove that you were not at fault for the incident, you can possibly sue the dog owner for damages. If you wish to proceed with charges, DoNotPay can also help you put together a strong case to help you win compensation for your suffering.
