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.
Alaska’s Extended Life Animal Sanctuary (Nikiski)

Babe Alaskas Extended Life Animal Sanctuary

“Babe will make a good family dog or a companion dog for you. She will tolerate other dogs and cats but really just wants to be with her best friend. She will shake and fetch as well as come and stay. Babe is an attentive listener. Babe is a “specials needs” dog. She simply needs to be given a bath every week with medicated shampoo. She has skin issues. Our Vet has tried several medications, fortunately the shampoo works best. It’s a common Boxer ‘thing’.” Click HERE to go directly to this pet’s Petfinder page.
Alaska SPCA (Anchorage)
Cheddar Alaska SPCA

“Cheddar is a male orange tabby that was found as a stray. He has a very sweet temperament and would love nothing more than to be petted and loved all day. He is known for his cuddling, and loves to be a lap cat! He is very talkative and couldn’t be happier when you have conversations with him. He has very unique markings and beautiful big green eyes. Come meet Cheddar and fall in love today!” Click HERE to go directly to this pet’s Petfinder page.
Anchorage Animal Care and Control Center

This is Lovie. “Curious and friendly, this mature girl is quiet and easy-going. She was found as a stray. She likes to explore her surroundings, but handles fine on leash and is a nice companion for walks or just spending time together. Enjoys sitting with you and is sweet and affectionate–will even give kisses! Weighs 61 pounds.” Click HERE to go directly to this pet’s Petfinder page.
Daisy Acres Critter Services (Two Rivers)

“Rocket is a male Alaskan Husky. He was born in Two Rivers, Alaska and sold or given away as a pup to be a family pet. Alas, his family recently moved, and was unable to keep any of their outdoor pets. Rocket and two other dogs were thus given away. Rocket has since been neutered, and more recently been trained in harness! As expected, he has taken to this sport like a duck to water. Rocket is a busy boy. He is also an aggressive eater and will accidentally bite those who offer treats so awareness and caution are advised. He was rumored to be an outside only dog, but he’s a smart and cheery fellow and could probably figure out how to live inside. As he ages, he would probably really LIKE to live inside! But being smart, and busy, he could also be a big liability indoors. He is not naturally mellow or disinterested. Thus constant supervision inside will be required.
Because of his prey drive and his energy levels, Rocket should perhaps not be trusted with cats or small children. He’s been fine with older kids. He can be snarky with other dogs, especially males, but he’s relaxed a lot since his neuter and has settled into group life here at Daisy Acres rather well. Time and attention will help this guy adjust even more. Rocket is available for either adoption or fostering. If you are interested, please contact Lynn at daisyacres@mosquitonet.com.” Click HERE to go directly to this pet’s Petfinder page.
Pet Pride (Fairbanks)

“Willow is a young tortoiseshell. She was a stray and nobody claimed her. She is spayed, has all shots including rabies and she is micro-chipped. She gets along with kids and other cats. She is a very sweet cat!!! She is ready for a new home today!!” Click HERE to go directly to this pet’s Petfinder page.
Soldotna Animal Shelter
Jeffrey Soldotna Animal Shelter
This is Jeffrey, a very friendly, neutered male cat. “He has been declawed, so he will be best suited as an indoor cat. He is waiting for a forever home. Please contact the shelter if you would be interested in adopting him.” Click HERE to go directly to this pet’s Petfinder page.
