Jax Federal Credit Union balance transfer campaign provides $3,150 for First Coast No More Homeless Pets

Donation will support FCNMHP Spay and Neuter Programs

JACKSONVILLE, FL (April 24, 2018) — Jax Federal Credit Union partnered with First Coast No More Homeless Pets to help further the welfare of animals across Northeast Florida with a donation of $3,150 to support the organization’s spay and neuter programs.

The donation is the result of Jax Federal Credit Union’s Get Fixed Visa Balance Transfer Campaign, which ran from January 1 through March 31. The campaign encouraged consumers to refinance debt from high-balance credit cards with high variable rates to a credit card with a low fixed rate for the life of the balance. For each balance transfer received during the campaign, Jax Federal Credit Union pledged to donate $5 to FCNMHP. The campaign resulted in 630 balance transfers.

“As a local credit union, we are always seeking opportunities to help the First Coast community and our members,” said Gerri Sexsion, President and CEO of Jax Federal Credit Union. “Our Get Fixed Campaign did just that. Not only did we help 630 members make a plan to pay off high-interest credit card debt, but we also helped support a great local cause. It’s a win-win in our book.”

The donation will allow FCNMHP to provide spay/neuter surgeries for more than 60 cats across the region.

“Over 30,000 strong, we know that the Jax Federal Credit Union members are committed to our community and all that makes it special,” said Rick DuCharme, President and CEO of FCNMHP. “This donation is an important investment in the quality of life for dogs and cats, and people who love them, across our region.”

Since its founding in 2001, FCNMHP has helped to put an end to the killing of shelter cats and dogs in Northeast Florida, Southeast Georgia and across the nation. FCNMHP also provides high-quality, low-cost veterinary services to the community and is the nation’s leader in low-cost spay/neuter, performing more than 20,000 surgeries per year.
