As part of their current activities First Coast No More Homeless Pets (FCNMHP) operate one of the largest spay/neuter facilities in the United States, performing as many as 32,000 surgeries a year. To help shelters with adoptions they host adoption events, and to keep pets in their homes they operate a Pet Food Bank for local low-income pet owners and for several small rural shelters. They are based in Jacksonville, FL and also work to provide emergency relief support during natural disasters.
DTUSA have supported FCNMHP with a grant to cover the cost of 60 large Ruff Tough kennels which will be used as part of FCNMHP’s regular programs throughout the year, as well as during disaster response to transport dogs safely from shelters in the disaster areas to shelters or locations in safe areas. In addition, the grant will be used to purchase food bins which serve as storage space for the donated food for their Pet Food Bank throughout the year, and during disaster response to transport food and supplies.
