We are the Fairbanks North Star Borough Division of Animal Control.
Our Mission is:
To ensure the safety and well-being of all borough residents through proactive education and enforcement, excellent customer service and outstanding animal care practices.
Come Meet Our Pets...
We are located in Fairbanks on the corner of Peger and Davis Roads. Our pets are viewable on many different websites and at our facility, Animal Control is open to the public:
Tues-Sat 11am-6pm Closed Sunday
Last daily visit is at 5:15 p.m. Adoption paperwork must be turned in to Customer Service staff 30 minutes before closing in order to be processed the same day.
Our Adoption Process...
All pets adopted from the Shelter are required to be spayed or neutered at time of adoption. If they are not, the adopter is responsible for the cost of spay/neuter surgery. If they are, the adopter must pay an adoption fee ($130 dog/$90 cat). Permanent Identification of microchip or tattoo is required prior to release from the shelter. The fee for a microchip is $15. There is a $15 rabies vaccination charge for all pets where vaccines cannot be verified as current.
