First Coast No More Homeless Pets wants Mandarin shelter – jacksonville.com

A Northeast Florida agency committed to keeping dogs and cats in animal shelters alive has a plan to adopt Jacksonville’s lone suburban pet adoption center that is being shut down due to budget cuts.

First Coast No More Homeless Pets has offered to take over the city’s Mandarin Adoption Center but needs $200,000 to do so for the first year.

The good news is that a board member has seeded the fund with $50,000, with a challenge for the community to match it. Now No More Homeless Pets needs the rest, executive director Rick DuCharme said.
