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.
But, before we get to the cuteness and good feels, there’s something a little more serious I want to tell you about. The Alaska SPCA’s Pet Food Bank is running low, and they need donations:
Please help Alaska SPCA feed hungry bellies by donating dog and cat food (wet and dry) and kitty litter. Our Pet Food Bank is under stocked, and we would greatly appreciate your help. Thank you!
If you would like to make a donation, you can call 562-2999 or drop your donations off at the Alaska SPCA clinic between 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday – Friday.
Alright, onto the cuteness.

“Mr. Big is a very sweet kitty who was surrendered by his owner. He is a big teddy bear who loves to sit on your lap and be petted. He is gentle, and easy-going, especially around other animals and children. He is great with female cats, but he doesn’t get along with any male cats. He is calm, quiet, and loving. If you are looking for a nice lap cat who loves being brushed, look no further. He is waiting patiently at the Alaska SPCA for you to meet him and take him to his furrever home,” so click here to find out how.

Please meet Honey. Curious, happy, intelligent and very sweet, Honey is 4 years old. She’s alert, playful and attentive, and loves people. She will climb into your lap for attention and to give you a kiss–and enjoys just sitting at your side. Likes exploring on her walks, but handles fine on leash and wants to please. Sits nicely for treats and takes them gently. Good-natured and affectionate, she makes a pleasant companion for walks or just spending time together. Click here to find out how to bring Honey home.

“Java is a large mixed-breed dog that can overwhelm small children. He is house-trained, but he will chase/harass cats, and he can/does jump fences. Currently, Java is living outside in a pen because that is my safest place for him. He would much rather be a part of a family, so if you are interested in fostering or adopting him, please contact me! Other than being big and smart, Java doesn’t have too many bad habits. He can be cranky with other dogs, but it’s a trainable/manageable behavior. His people moved and couldn’t take him with, so he stayed with the house they sold, but the new homeowner couldn’t deal with him and Java scared a small child, and well, now he’s looking for love somewhere else. Java loves to ride in cars, he’s good in the house, except for all the other dogs and cats that are living here in MY house. He’d love to be a family pet again and be that one special dog for somebody. Java is about six years old, he’s never been in harness, his whole life experience has been as a pet. Would you be interested in fostering him and discovering his other skills and talents? To meet Java please click here.
