Alaska SPCA’s mission is to reduce the suffering of Alaska’s dogs and cats, and our vision is for Alaska to be a state where all cats and dogs experience emotional, physical, and environmental health and lifelong wellness. We provide affordable, high-quality veterinary services, including low-cost spay/neuter surgeries, walk-in vaccinations, x-ray, dental, diagnostic, wellness checks, microchipping, and health certificates. We also have an Adoption Center, Pet Food Bank and a mobile surgery unit which provides spay/neuter to towns along the road system.
How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
Your support makes a difference statewide. The adoption center provides state-of-the-art housing and care for a maximum 10 dogs and 20 cats that are up for adoption through the Alaska SPCA. Animals at our adoption center come to us from municipal animal control facilities and rural rescue groups and frequently include animals that might otherwise be euthanized. We partner with rescue groups in Aniak, Barrow, Nome, and Kotzebue and from shelters in Homer, Kenai, Mat-Su, Anchorage, and Dillingham. The adoption center is committed to finding adoptive animals ‘forever’ homes through applicant screening and trial placements.
As health care costs go up across the nation, more families are faced with giving up their beloved pet or having them put to sleep because they can’t afford the health care needed. We believe that a pet is a valuable addition to a family and becomes a member of that family. That pet deserves access to affordable health care so it can remain with its family.
Grim is a beloved pug that lives in Chignik Lake where there isn’t a veterinarian. Grim got out and got into a fight with a neighbor’s dog. His eye had popped out and he needed help. The family frantically called around Anchorage for a vet that could help. The prices that were quoted were out of the families means and they were left with the horrific choice of having to put him down. But one of the vets they called recommended they call the Alaska SPCA to see if we could help. We were able to work out a cost that they could afford. Grim was on the next plane out, had his surgery and was even neutered in the deal. He had some recovery time but was flown back out to his family.
Your support makes a difference for families with pets in crisis. Whether it is with medical care, finding forever homes, or with our Pet Food Bank that assists families by providing pet food to those who need temporary assistance to keep their beloved pet.
