First Coast No More Homeless Pets, one of the leading non-profit animal welfare organizations in northeast Florida is adding a Chief Medical Officer to our management team. Our 165 paid team members include 20+ veterinarians and 65+ vet techs. Our spay/neuter clinic performs 22,000+ spay/neuter surgeries annually and our veterinary hospitals see 80,000+ patients each year.

Our regional safety net hospital serves a two state region and is open until midnight 7 days per week with the goal of providing 24 hour service in the near future.
Jacksonville (Duval County) and several surrounding counties are saving 90+% of shelter pets and we continue to be a strong partner with many area shelters to help ensure this continues.

FCNMHP is recognized as a national thought leader and continues to be at the forefront of companion animal welfare issues. Economic euthanasia and access to veterinary care for all are quickly being recognized as major animal welfare issues and FCNMHP is helping to drive the national conversation.
