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.


Bethel Friends of Canines


Our Friends at Canine Comfort in Aniak have Paris available for adoption in Anchorage. She has already been spayed, microchipped, has her puppy shots and her rabies vaccination. She is extremely bright and food-motivated. She should do well with obedience training if reinforced in a consistent and positive manner. She is a very loving and affectionate girl and gets along well with other dogs, although she does get excited and is learning to not play too rough. She is respectful with cats and is usually comfortable in new situations. Paris’s ideal home will have another dog friend to play and snuggle with, a secure fenced yard (required), and a family committed to keeping her intellectually stimulated and exercising her regularly.

Do you have the time and energy to dedicate to Paris? Find out more HERE!


Gastineau Humane Society (Juneau)


As you can see immediately upon meeting Cheerio, he is different from other kitties. Aside from being extremely handsome, he also has deformities of both of his front legs. Cheerio has what is known as Carpal Bone Hypoplasia. This means that his wrist bones did not develop correctly. This is considered a birth defect and is not a result of any injury or trauma. Cheerio needs surgery to fix both of his front legs, but the surgery would not need to happen for a few months while his skeletal system finishes growing.

Cheerio needs a special family with the means to help him! Please learn more about him HERE.


Homeward Bound Pet Rescue and Referral (Fairbanks)


Jack is an amazing, friendly little almost 2 year old guy. He didn’t like being teased by the young person in his former home. He adores children! BUT only children that are loving and affectionate. For this reason he will only be placed in a home with children over the age of 7.

Older kids looking for a fuzzy friend are perfect for Jack! Learn how to make him yours HERE.


Kenai Animal Shelter


Peanut is a very sweet cat and loves to just lay around and be the center of attention. She hisses at other cats so a home without any would be best. We haven’t really seen her with dogs but suspect the same. She is said to be great with kids. Loves the indoors and will catch any mice you may have running around your house. She is a inside cat.

Peanut is a mouse catching loner. Perfect for you? Start the process HERE!


Loving Companions Animal Rescue Inc. (North Pole)


Gator is an algae eater, very large, turned in because they were moving and it is very difficult to move with fish. We have a very large fish tank and depending on the season have sometimes a large variety of fish to choose from.

We sure don’t see rescue fish that often! Don’t hesitate, Gator is ready for you. Learn more HERE.
