Animal Services continuously receives friendly, adorable animals
who need loving homes. Our animals come from various sources, such
as stray animals or animals from private homes where to owner can
no longer care for them. Many of them have been neglected or abandoned,
but love can make a big difference in their lives .
Dog adoptions are $50 and Cat Adoptions are $40. Both fees include
a refundable deposit. The Adopter is responsible for getting
their new pet sterilized and vaccinated against rabies. When this
has been done and proof provided to Animal Services, a check request
will be submitted for a refund of the deposit. If you are a Hernando
County resident, you will also receive a free one-year Hernando County
Animal License. Please see additional information under the link "Adopting
a Pet" on the Animal Services Webpage.
If you would like a friend who will love you unconditionally and
bring joy to your life, please visit our shelter located at 19450
Oliver Street in Brooksville to find your new friend. In order to
be considered for adoption, you are required to complete an application
for the animal you are interested in. All adoptions require an approved
application. To save time, download an adoption application to fill
out and bring with you on your visit.
We regret that we are unable to maintain a "wish list" and
cannot provide callbacks when particular "wanted" animals
(i.e. purebreds, specific colors, puppies, kittens, etc.) arrive
at the shelter. Please continue to check with us if you are looking
for a particular type of animal.
