If you have made the important decision to bring a companion animal into your life, we hope that you will visit our Adoption Center for a dog, cat, kitten, or puppy that will match your home and lifestyle.
Our adoption process is all about matchmaking and we want to help you find a companion that will fit your lifestyle. Before you visit us, take some time to consider how much time you will spend with them and consider that a healthy puppy or kitten can live for 15 to 20 years. This new four legged family member can take time to adjust and fit in and just like us, they need food, water, supplies and veterinary care.
Stop on in at 8301 Petersburg St in Anchorage. One of our adoption coordinators will visit with you and give you some ideas on which of our visiting animals might be the best fit for you.
Once you have made the decision to adopt, please come in and meet with one of our friendly adoption coordinators! The adoption coordinator will give you more information on our animals and help you decide which pets might be right for you. In addition, he or she will review our application process with you and answer any questions you may have!
Our adoption center features a meet-and-greet room to allow potential adopters time with our available animals.
All animals are spayed or neutered and microchipped before leaving for their forever homes. In addition, they have received the required age-appropriate vaccines. Our staff will make sure you are aware of your new family member's vaccine schedule. All cats have been tested for feline leukemia. All dogs whose new families live in the Municipal of Anchorage will receive a one year license.
Adoption is a partnership between the adopter, AK SPCA staff and the animal. We are committed to making that partnership work for everyone.
What does my adoption fee help cover?
The Alaska SPCA ensures all adoptable pets go to their forever homes spayed/neutered, microchipped and registered. In addition, all pets receive an intake wellness exam with one of our veterinarians, fecal parasite screening and deworming, appropriate diagnostic testing (ie., parvo-virus screening or feline leukemia screening), age-appropriate vaccinations, a dental health check. We also make sure our new pet-parents are fully informed of any ongoing health concerns we are aware of.
