BREVARD COUNTY, Fla (WOFL FOX 35) - A proposal to allow dogs on beaches in Brevard County is gaining steam, but officials are anticipating the proposal to be met with some criticism.
The petition is currently on Change.org and more than 2,500 people signed it within the first two days.
Renee Hurley of Cocoa Beach started the petition. She wants to allow dogs on public beaches before nine in the morning and after five in the evening. Hurley says this will not interfere with daily beach goers and allow pets to enjoy the beaches as well.
Brevard County has just one dog-friendly beach located in Melbourne at Canova Beach Park. Hurley says she plans to take her petition to county commissioners.
