Adoption Center

What to Expect

Bringing a new furry family member home is a major decision.  We want your New Best Friend to be able to live his/her very best life with you, so we go through a couple of steps in our adoption process.   We want to make sure that it's a good fit for the pet as well as for your family.  Come meet the animal you think you want and spend some time together. If you have dogs at home and are interested in adopting another dog, a controlled meet-and-greet will be required before the adoption can take place.

What treatment has my new pet had?
The Alaska SPCA ensures all adoptable pets go to their forever homes spayed/neutered, microchipped, and registered (dogs only). In addition, all pets receive an intake wellness exam with one of our veterinarians, deworming, appropriate diagnostic testing (ie., parvo-virus screening or feline leukemia screening), age-appropriate vaccinations, and a dental health check. You pet may have also had surgery, dental procedures, lab work, and digital imaging. We make sure our new pet-parents are fully informed of any ongoing health concerns we are aware of.
