First Coast No More Homeless Pets Needs Donations

The first Food Bank distribution event was held on March 13, 2010. Every month since, food has been given to pets who owners have experienced financial hardships. To date, almost 175,000 pound of dog and cat food has been given, feeding thousands of pets on the First Coast.

This program uses NO taxpayer dollars. All food is raised through donations and food drives. All of the staffing is by volunteering, and the program operates on a very small budget, buying the few necessary supplies from cash donations.

Some of our clients include disabled veterans, seniors on fixed income, victims of layoffs, single parent families and many others who are struggling to make ends meet and do not want to have to give up the family pet or pets.

Those who receive food must meet income qualifications, and pets must be spayed or neutered. FCNMHP offers a free surgery for those who qualify. This element helps to further reduce the number of animals euthanized due to overpopulation.

Current demands are high with close to 20,000 pounds a month needed, and current donation levels are less than half that number. In order to continue the program, FCNMHP needs the help of regular donations. We are seeking donations of food or cash. DRY food is preferred as it stretches further. ALL TYPES and BRANDS of DRY FOOD are needed.
