The mission of First Coast No More Homeless Pets (FCNMHP) is to eliminate the killing of dogs and cats in our 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! As spay/neuter surgeries increase, the shelter and euthanasia rates decrease. We have a truly exceptional plan to end the needless killing of adoptable pets. We are committed to reaching those who need our assistance.

Since 2003 we have facilitated over 146,000 pet sterilizations in the First Coast area. We have seen an overall reduction in pet intake of approximately 50%. Prior to our programs, admissions and euthanasia were increasing by as much as 10% annually.

FCNMHP 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, our Trap-Neuter-Return program was developed to offer low-cost spay and neuter surgeries for feral and stray cats.
