Humane Society of the Nature Coast
501(c)3 Non-profit Organization in Brooksville, Florida.
Founded in 1964, the Humane Society of the Nature Coast, Inc. is a private non-profit, no time limit organization dedicated to the rescue, health and re-homing of orphaned and abandoned pets. We receive no operational funding from local, state or federal governments or from the Humane Society of the United States. Operations are entirely funded by donations and fundraising events held throughout the year.
We are proud to serve the people and animals of the Nature Coast, which includes Hernando, Pasco, and Citrus counties, with a variety of programs and services.
“Our mission is to provide a safe haven for homeless, neglected and abused animals while promoting pet welfare and sterilization to achieve a no-kill society.”
We have successfully partnered with many non-profit and community organizations. Through these partnerships, we have implemented several successful programs.
Military Foster Program
Our military foster program is one we are very proud of. This program places pets from men and woman serving our country overseas into loving foster homes for as long as needed if they have no one to care for their pets while deployed.
Safe Harbor for Pets
Working with the Hernando County Sheriffs Department and The Dawn Center, a pioneer program called Safe Harbor for Pets was created for victims of domestic abuse, in which families anonymously foster the animals belonging to these victims so they are not left behind.
