First Coast No More Homeless Pets

Adopt a Pet

First Coast No More Homeless Pets hosts two types of adoption events — Mega Pet Adoptions and Super Pet Adoptions. Continue down to learn more about each of these life-saving events.


About Mega Pet Adoption Events

event icon megaDownload our latest Mega Adoption Flyer

First Coast No More Homeless Pets hosts, plans, and funds the Mega Pet Adoption Events, the largest adoption events in the country, four 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 their forever home.

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 continue to support our efforts through donations, sponsoring and attending our events, volunteering, and be-questing us in your will. We won’t rest until there comes a day when there are truly no more homeless pets.
Here are a few fun facts about our event:

  • Over 1,000 homeless pets find their way to the Jax Fairgrounds at each event, most finding homes.
  • Approximately 8,000 people attend each event with a mission to find their perfect pet.
  • These events are effective in emptying out shelters, allowing for more space.
  • We have saved the lives of 8,827 dogs and cats through our Mega Pet Adoptions since 2012.
  • Our July 2014 event set a record — 1,164 dogs and cats found homes.

First Coast No More Homeless Pets is hosting, planning, and funding Super Adoption Events, brand new events, four times this year. We will be partnering with shelters and rescues from the urban areas of Jacksonville, Daytona and Gainesville to find their adoptable dogs, cats, puppies and kittens new forever homes.

The purpose of these Super 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 expanding it to our surrounding communities.

Adopt a Prison Dog

Teaching Animals and Inmates Life SkillsDogs with behavioral issues are often hard to adopt. These dogs are given a second chance through our Teaching Animals and Inmates Life Skills (TAILS) program, where they are placed into Florida prisons to be rehabilitated. Each dog is assigned three prisoners who have been trained to care for, socialize, and teach the dogs obedience skills. Be sure to consider our graduating dogs as our new pet!
