Areas Hernando County Animal Shelter Serves

The Hernando County Animal Shelter works closely with the Hernando County Sheriff's Office to enforce local animal ordinances and state humane laws, provides dog licensing, animal sheltering and care and adoption services for the county. Animal Services Officers with the Sheriff's Office are authorized to investigate possible animal related law violations and take appropriate enforcement action. Each year the officers conduct hundreds of investigations, and issue citations.

Hernando County Animal Shelter's Adoption Process

HC Animal Shelter continuously receives friendly, adorable animals who need loving homes. Our animals come from various sources, such as stray animals brought in by the Sheriff's Office Animal Services Officers. Many of them have been neglected or abandoned, but love can make a big difference in their lives.

Adoption fees are as follows:

DOGS: $70 for small breed (under 25lbs) and puppies (under 6mo), $50
for adults, and $25 for heartworm positive and senior dogs.

CATS: $40 for kittens (under 6mo) and $20 for adults.

All animals older than 8 weeks of age will be sterilized, vaccinated for rabies, heartworm tested (dogs), FeLV tested (cats), general dewormer, deflea, DA2PP vaccine (dogs) or FVRCP vaccine (cats), and a 1-yr county animal license issued if the adopter lives in Hernando County.

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.

Animals must be observed for health and temperament and Animal Services reserves the right to refuse to adopt out any animal that is deemed unadoptable.

Every year the Animal Shelter euthanizes healthy, adoptable animals because there are not enough homes for them all. If you are looking for a new pet, please visit Animal Services and our staff will be happy to help you find the right pet for your family.

About Hernando County Animal Shelter

This page is NOT monitored at all times. Due to limited staff, not all of our animals are posted online.

If you are interested in a particular animal please make note of it's Animal ID # and call the office during regular business hours at (352)796-5062 or email us anytime at ac@hernandocounty.us to inquire about the animal. Our animals come into the shelter as strays so we usually don't have much information or any history on the animal.
