The Humane Society of the Nature Coast, Inc. is a non-profit 501c3 organization dedicated to the rescue, health and re-homing of orphaned and abandoned pets. We work diligently to locate and work with specialized rescue groups from ferret rescue to wildlife organizations.

In November 1964, the Humane Society of Brooksville, Inc. was founded in Hernando County, Florida. The name was changed in 1985 to The Humane Society of Hernando County, Inc. Due to the ever-expanding area that the Humane Society now services, in 2004, we changed our name to The Humane Society of the Nature Coast, Inc.

The land we occupy was part of a bequeathed estate for the pets of Hernando County for as long as the land is utilized as a pet rescue or sanctuary. We purchased an additional acre of land located on the north border of the property which will allow for expansion.

1. Feral Cat TNR Program

Many communities are embracing Trap, Neuter, Release programs (TNR) to improve animal welfare, reduce death rates, and meet obligations to public welfare.

2. High-Volume, Low-Cost Spay/Neuter

Low cost, high volume spay/neuter will quickly lead to fewer animals entering the shelter system, allowing more resources to be allocated toward saving lives.

3. Rescue Groups

An adoption or transfer to a rescue group frees up scarce cage and kennel space, reduces expenses for feeding, cleaning, killing, and improves a community's rate of lifesaving. In an environment of millions of dogs and cats killed in shelters annually, rare is the circumstance in which a rescue group should be denied an animal.

4. Foster Care

Volunteer foster care is crucial to No Kill. Without it, saving lives is compromised. It is a low cost, and often no cost, way of increasing a shelter's capacity, improving public relations, increasing a shelter's public image, rehabilitating sick and injured or behaviorally challenged animals, and saving lives.

5. Comprehensive Adoption Programs

Adoptions are vital to an agency's lifesaving mission. The quantity and quality of shelter adoptions is in shelter management's hands, making lifesaving a direct function of shelter policies and practice. In fact, studies show people get their animals from shelters only 20% of the time. If shelters better promoted their animals and had adoption programs responsive to the needs of the community, including public access hours for working people, offsite adoptions, adoption incentives, and effective marketing, they could increase the number of homes available and replace killing with adoptions. Contrary to conventional wisdom, shelters can adopt their way out of killing.

6. Pet Retention

While some of the reasons animals are surrendered to shelters are unavoidable, others can be prevented-but only if shelters are willing to work with people to help them solve their problems. Saving animals requires communities to develop innovative strategies for keeping people and their companion animals together. And the more a community sees its shelters as a place to turn for advice and assistance, the easier this job will be.

7. Medical and Behavior Programs

In order to meet its commitment to a lifesaving guarantee for all savable animals, shelters need to keep animals happy and healthy and keep animals moving through the system. To do this, shelters must put in place comprehensive vaccination, handling, cleaning, socialization, and care policies before animals get sick and rehabilitative efforts for those who come in sick, injured, unweaned, or traumatized.

8. Public Relations/Community Involvement

Increasing adoptions, maximizing donations, recruiting volunteers and partnering with community agencies comes down to one thing: increasing the shelter's exposure. And that means consistent marketing and public relations. Public relations and marketing are the foundation of all a shelter's activities and their success. To do all these things well, the shelter must be in the public eye.

9. Volunteers

Volunteers are a dedicated "army of compassion" and the backbone of a successful No Kill effort. There is never enough staff, never enough dollars to hire more staff, and always more needs than paid human resources. That is where volunteers come in and make the difference between success and failure and, for the animals, life and death.

10. Proactive Redemptions

One of the most overlooked areas for reducing killing in animal control shelters are lost animal reclaims. Sadly, besides having pet owners fill out a lost pet report, very little effort is made in this area of shelter operations. This is unfortunate because doing so-primarily shifting from passive to a more proactive approach-has proven to have a significant impact on lifesaving and allow shelters to return a large percentage of lost animals to their families.

11. A Compassionate Director

The final element of the No Kill equation is the most important of all, without which all other elements are thwarted-a hard working, compassionate animal control or shelter director not content to regurgitate tired cliches or hide behind the myth of "too many animals, not enough homes." Unfortunately, this one is also oftentimes the hardest one to demand and find.

I've been trying to help my parents with a feral/stray cat issue where they live & I must say I can understand why there continues to be a horrific problem with feral/stray cats in this county!!! Not only due to lack of spay/neutering, but also because when elder folks pass away. Then these cats continue to breed, if they survive in the wild, & Hernando County considers TNR unlawful...how AWFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I called the number that I was given, for Animal Services...turns out it was the Animal Shelter number & SUE, someone working there/volunteering there, was QUITE RUDE!!!! I was given the number for the sheriffs office, to alert animal control. Are they a No Kill Shelter??? I don't know, as SUE couldn't be bothered to be of ANY HELP to me & my parents. I'm very disheartened with the lack of a good system to be of any help to these creatures. They didn't create this situation. I will say, I spoke with Gail, at Nature Coast Humane Society & SPCA, and also to Fran, from Pet Luv, & they both were kind & tried to be of help to my parents & I. Thank you, Ladies!!!
