Pets at Our Shelter:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Anchorage Animal Care and Control Center (AACCC) is the Municipal animal shelter, housing a variety of animals up for adoption, from dogs and cats to hamsters, reptiles, birds and other pets. These animals are either surrendered to AACCC by owners that can not care for them or are brought in as “strays”. AACCC also provides domestic animal control services to the entire Municipality. Animal Control Officers (ACOs) respond to an average of 800 citizen requests for service per month regarding animal cruelty, animal bites, loose animals, barking dogs, injured animals, and other requests for service. For more information, please see our website: www.muni.org/animal.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
