People love pets. They’re cute, cuddly, and fun! But having a pet involves much more than just love. There’s a huge commitment involved; pets need food and water, medical care, and lots of attention. Unfortunately, with all of these responsibilities, many people find that they are in over their heads. The result is a large number of unwanted pets. That’s where Maricopa County Animal Care & Control (Phoenix, Arizona 85009) comes in. MCACC does what it does because over 55,000 animals in Maricopa County need it each year. MCACC strives to take care of animals and to be proactive and offer programs to prevent problems before they occur. For example, Maricopa County’s Spay/Neuter Assistance Program (SNAP) helps reduce the unwanted pet population through the spaying and neutering of cats and dogs.

MCACC’s mission is to promote and protect the health, safety, and welfare of people and pets in Maricopa County. MCACC is an open-admission animal shelter. As such, it takes in more than 50,000 dogs and cats each year. Some may be ill or injured. Others may have behavioral issues or be aggressive. MCACC receives pets from people who can no longer care for them, and pets that are no longer wanted. MCACC receives many perfectly healthy dogs and cats that just need a new home.

MCACC believes it is not the animals fault for being at the shelter. It wants every healthy, treatable, and manageable animal to get a second chance at love.

MCACC’s goal is to save the lives of all healthy, treatable, and manageable dogs and cats in the community. To reach that goal, MCACC works with local animal welfare partners in Alliance for Companion Animals and the Maricopa County Maddie’s Project. MCACC is fortunate to have the support of FACC’s (Friends of Animal Care and Control), fundraising on its behalf.

The mission of First Coast No More Homeless Pets (Jacksonville, Florida 32208) is to eliminate the killing of dogs and cats in the local community through free and low-cost spay and neuter programs. Spay and neuter programs are the only proven method for controlling the pet overpopulation crisis and First Coast is committed to reaching those who need its assistance.

First Coast No More Homeless Pets was founded in 2001 when Rick DuCharme, founder and executive director, developed the SpayJax program in response to a request by the City of Jacksonville for a city funded spay/neuter program. Following SpayJax, SpayNassau was developed along with two other low-cost programs. In 2006, First Coast’s Trap-Neuter-Return program was developed to offer low-cost spay and neuter surgeries for feral, stray, outdoor, and community cats. In August 2008, First Coast’s Feral Freedom program kicked off, saving approximately 5,000 feral cats a year. In April 2009, First Coast moved in and opened its state-of-the-art high volume and high quality spay/neuter and wellness clinic. In 2010, First Coast averaged 2,000 spay/neuter surgeries every month.

Since 2002, First Coast has facilitated over 90,000 pet sterilizations in the First Coast area. It has seen an overall reduction in pet intake of approximately 34% and a 58% decrease in the number of animals having to be euthanized.

In April 2009, FCNMHP opened its high volume, high quality spay/neuter clinic located in the Joseph A. Strasser Animal Health and Welfare Building, to facilitate the needed increase in surgeries. The clinic is designed with the capacity for up to 200 daily sterilizations, making ir one of the highest volume clinics in the country when at full capacity. To help support its low-cost and free spay/neuter programs, First Coast also provides affordable pet health care. First Coast offers vaccinations, testing, microchipping, and flea and heartworm preventative and treatment in its Veterinary Care Clinic.

In March 2010, FCNMHP opened the Jacksonville Pet Food Bank, giving qualified low-income families pet food so that they may keep their pets in this challenging economy. Over 120,000 pounds of food has been distributed to more than 4,000 pets!
