First Coast No More Homeless Pets is not a shelter but helps make shelters stronger by hosting, planning, and funding the Mega Pet Adoption Events, the largest adoption events in the country, three times a year. We partner with shelters and rescues from all over Northeast Florida and beyond. Together in one place, more than ten groups bring their adoptable dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens in hopes that each one will find forever homes.
The purpose of these Mega Adoptions is to truly work on our mission — to end the killing of dogs and cats in shelters by ensuring that shelters will not have to euthanize for space. These events are an important part of maintaining Jacksonville’s no-kill status and helping surrounding areas and the nation follow suit.
We want and need to continue hosting the Mega Adoption events, but they are costly. Please support our efforts through donations, sponsoring and attending our events, volunteering, and bequeathing us in your will. We won’t rest until the day when there are truly no more homeless pets.
