Friends of Jacksonville Animals
The Friends of Jacksonville Animals organization is a great help to ACPS. Learn more about this caring group at their website.
Animal Care and Protective Services (ACPS) and Friends of Jacksonville Animals (FOJA) have a new animal adoption campaign called Down2Zero. The primary goal of this effort is to raise awareness about the importance of adopting local shelter animals and encourage Jacksonville residents to support their local shelter by donating and/or volunteering.
