Adopt a Pet at our Adoption Events

Mega Pet Adoption Events

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.

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 — keeping dogs and cats in homes and out of shelters. 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.

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 more than 15,000 dogs and cats through our Mega Pet Adoptions since 2012.
