Over the past decade we have touched thousands of lives, helping pet owners, their pets and our community. Our name is our mission as we support people across our primary 18 county service area with free or low-cost spay/neuter surgeries, low-cost veterinary care, adoption events and animal retention programs for First Coast residents.
