Take Me Home Tonight: Adoptable Pets from Alaska Shelters


Every week we feature adoptable pets from across Alaska. To the best of our knowledge, each pet is still available, and we encourage you to follow the links to find out more about these animals and the shelters that are caring for them.

We all love cats and dogs, but this week we decided to feature some of Alaska’s lesser known adoptable pets.  There are lots of less traditional shelter animals out there that need forever homes too!


Alaska Bird Club (Anchorage)

Sol and Mango

Sol is a 4 year old DNA sexed female Jenday Conure. Mango is a 3 year old Sun conure, gender not confirmed.  They enjoy peanuts, dried fruit, apples, and watermelon. They don’t really like any vegetables. Sol is the more difficult bird of the two. She plucks her own neck feathers, and Mango plucks her as well. She eats a lot but is a little underweight. They both prefer women over men, as I have raised them most of their lives. They love to sit on shoulders and are gentle when nibbling on ears. The enjoy spending as much time outside of their cage as possible.

Birds are a big responsibility! If you think you are up for the task, learn more about them HERE.


Alaska SPCA (Anchorage)


Sable is now microchipped, spayed, and ready for adoption! She is exceptionally friendly and deserves a home where she will receive daily care and lots of attention — this is not a bunny to put in a hutch in the back yard. In return for a good home and family, Sable promises to be a wonderful loving companion.
Sable is currently living in a foster home.

If you would like to meet her, please call the Alaska SPCA at 529-1530 or learn more about Sable HERE.


Fairbanks North Star Borough Animal Control


Shilo is a small adult male ferret.

To learn more (much more hopefully), go HERE.


Kenai Animal Shelter


Roger may be a girl, we have not determined that yet. Very adorable fuzzy rabbit, doesn’t mind being pet, or handled from what we can tell. Will need to be placed outside of city limits (if adopting in Kenai), as rabbits are considered livestock and need permits.

Is Roger (Rogerette?) the right fuzzy bunny for you? Learn more HERE to find out!


Loving Companions Animal Rescue Inc. (North Pole)


We have 2 turtles, male and female, both in very good condition and well cared for. The family had to give them up because they are moving for health reasons and could not take them. They are available either together or separate, with or without the tank.

If you are interested, please contact us at 488-0516 or go HERE to learn more.
