Dozens of Animals Seized from Brooksville Property, No Charges to be Filed

BROOKSVILLE – Yesterday, RNRF reported the seizure of several animals from a property on Neff Lake Road. Officials have now released a full report into what led to the investigation and subsequent removal of numerous dogs and cats.

According to reports, Animal Enforcement Officers responded to 4320 Neff Lake Road, the home of 71-year-old Carol Allard. Officials say Officers had been working with Allard for the last few months, in an effort to bring her up to County Code, as it pertains to the care and welfare of her animals. Unfortunately, Allard was unable to meet those requirements, which led to Animal Enforcement Officers removing a total of 60 dogs and 23 cats.

Allard was allowed to keep 14 dogs, which is the number allowed before a state kennel license is required.

Authorities are working with Allard to surrender the animals that were removed from her property.  If Allard does not surrender the animals, a fitness petition will be filed, asking a judge to order the animals out of her custody, permanently.

The animals appeared to be in good health, say officials, but a few had skin conditions, breathing problems, and paws that needed medical attention. All the animals were properly vaccinated and treated for fleas and ticks.

Allard told deputies that it has been her life-long passion to care for and rescue animals, and she doesn’t want to see any animal euthanized.

There are no charges expected to be filed against Allard at this time.

James Terry, Hernando County Animal Services Manager, tells RNRF that he has received help from shelters and volunteers all over the state. Terry says Pasco and Pinellas counties provided cages and will help with the adoption process to help lift the burden.

Terry urges the community to contact HCAS to help provide goods, services and adoptions. The shelter is located at 19450 Oliver Street in Brooksville. For information on how you can help HCAS call 352-796-5062.

  • At 64 y.o. with 5 cats I have ENOUGH TOUBLE keeping up the routine here. But 71 with almost 100 animals – oh my word!!! Your dream was idealistic but you have to have a plan in place to make it work. I feel very sorry for this lady and her adoptees as I’M a soft hearted animal lover also. God bless you for trying but you have to know your limitations and abilities (also the laws). To Pinellas and Pasco counties: YOU ROCK!! We have a sheriff who doesn’t care about helping other municipalities (and has said so) but Pasco and Pinellas and other counties not mentioned step up for 1) the animals; 2) other counties. That’s what compassion and caring are about.
