My name is Elena Hernandez. I recently adopted a two-month-old kitten from the Brevard Animal Shelter. At my school, I participate in the Canine Commandos program. This gives me a chance to see the amount of dogs and cats that are abandoned or have had to be taken out of homes because of abuse from their owner.  We visit the shelter every month to help the animals get adopted by socializing and training with them. Our visits to the shelter and my experiences there inspired me to adopt an animal of my own. Spending time with my new cat makes me so happy!
