First Coast No More Homeless Pets no-kill adoption center gets largest grant ever – jacksonville.com

First Coast No More Homeless Pets, a nonprofit no-kill pet adoption center, has received a $340,000 grant from a Utah animal society that has acted as its mentor.

The grant from the Best Friends Animal Society will support a planned First Coast No More Homeless Pets initiative to get more animals adopted from Jacksonville’s city animal shelter and help operate the Mandarin satellite adoption center it took over from the city in 2011.

The grant is the largest single donation or grant that First Coast has ever received, said Rick DuCharme, founder and executive director.

“I was sort of floored,” he said.
