BROOKSVILLE, FL – The Humane Society of the Nature Coast announced the not-for-profit’s expansion of their current Brooksville campus.

The new facility will be located at 7200 Mobley Rd., where their current campus resides. The new building will more than double the organizations capacity for adoptable cats and for dogs in the near future.  An Exam Room, New Free-Roaming Cat Rooms, Cat Patios, Medical Isolation Rooms, Volunteer Center, Education Room and Staff functions will all be housed in the new building.

“After 52 years of working to serve our mission of offering compassionate care and finding permanent homes for the homeless, neglected and abused dogs and cats of our community, we have embraced our supporter’s desire to make an even greater impact ,” said Barbara Sprague, HSNC’s Executive Director. “Thanks to you HSNC is building to save more lives!”

The board of the Humane Society of the Nature Coast has been focusing the past 3 years on expansion of space and services. The organization took steps toward enhancing and upgrading the many facets of the shelter with the hiring of Sprague, a seasoned animal welfare and shelter director. HSNC also began revamping its adoption, volunteer and outreach programs.

“We are very excited to have adopted out 516 dogs and cats in 2016, 26% more than in previous years,” said Sprague. “HSNC is proud to be a leading animal resource for our community.”


Sprague thanked the HSNC Board of Directors and their faithful donors for their work in making the expansion possible. “I want to publicly acknowledge our Board for having the vision to make this expansion possible.  We are also so thankful for the wonderful community of supporters we have that care so much about the animals who come into our care.”


Currently, plans for a new location further down Wiscon Rd. is financially prohibitive for the organization, therefore they began the strategic process to accommodate more animals and serve the needs of the growing organization at their current campus.


“HSNC is thrilled to have the opportunity to save more lives and continue to improve the quality of life for both the citizens and animals of the community,” said Lori Bainum, President of the Board of Directors.


Construction on HSNC’s new campus expansion is scheduled to begin in August, with principle construction being completed by November. The organization anticipates remaining open for adoptions during construction with an open house in December. Updates regarding the expansion project will be posted on HSNC’s website


Room naming opportunities within the new are actively being offered as well as general building donations. Interested parties may contact Barbara Sprague, Executive Director at 352-796-2711 or donate directly at
