This is the first post in a new series called Take Me Home Tonight: Adoptable Pets from Alaska Shelters. Every week, I’m going to feature adoptable pets and events surrounding pet adoption from across Alaska. To the best of my knowledge, each of these pets are still available, and I encourage you to follow the links to find out more about these animals and the shelters that are caring for them.
Do you know of an animal shelter that should be featured here? Do you work at a shelter and want to get the word out about an adoptable pet or adoption clinic? Send an email to info (at) alaskacommons (dot) com. I’ll read it, I promise.
Anchorage Animal Care & Control
“Here is Princess, a 6 year old, spayed female, husky mix. Friendly, affectionate and playful, Princess is shy at first meeting, but warms up fast with quiet, gentle handling. She’s attentive and responsive, walks politely on her leash, and enjoys sitting at your side for petting and attention. Has lived with kids 4 to 11, and with a cat, and did great with all. She’s been to obedience classes, knows commands, and wants to please. Beautiful girl with soft, fluffy fur and a happy smile! Great family pooch! Princess can be adopted for $72, as she is already spayed, which includes her MOA dog license, vaccinations, and microchip.” Click HERE to go directly to this pet’s Petfinder page.

“Jax is aging well. He is a sweet boy that could go to a pet home now. He likes to run but would love to curl up and be warm. He is a furry guy that will bolt his winter coat this spring.” Click HERE to go directly to this pet’s Petfinder page.
Gastineau Humane Society (Juneau)
“Meatball is the shelter manager, but would love a home of her own like her many furry friends. She needs to lose some weight. Can you find room in your heart for Meatball?” Click HERE to go directly to this pet’s Petfinder page.
Sometimes these shelters don’t have a particular featured pet, so I pick one. I’m open to suggestions if you know of a pet that needs a special mention. I have not met any of these pets and so I can’t answer any questions about their back stories, other than what is available to read online.
