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!
