The 2012 Poster Dog Contest Winners have been selected!

2012 Poster Dog: Darwin – Owner Donna DeFazio

There were many wonderful entries this year and we hope that those not selected will consider entering again next year.  We have some truly wonderful dogs in Anchorage and this contest is proof of that.

The new Dog Licensing Campaign materials featuring Darwin will hit a veterinary clinic near you in January 2012!  Congratulations to all our winners and thank you to everyone that participated!

We will be featuring all of the wonderful dogs that have been entered, including our winners on our Facebook page over the coming months!  To see all the fantastic entries, “like” our facebook page at www.facebook.com/AnchorageAnimalCareandControl

Each year, Anchorage Animal Care and Control Center (AACCC) holds its Poster Dog Contest to select the AACCC poster dog(s) for the dog licensing campaign in the coming year.  A municipal license is required for all dogs over the age of four months. In 2010, only 36% of stray animals brought to AACCC were claimed by their owners.  Sadly, most arrive because they have no identification and no way to return them to their owner.  Identification and licensing go hand in hand with the protection of our pets.

 A License = A Way Home!

Is your dog’s Municipality of Anchorage license current?  You can now purchase a license for your pet online at www.muni.org/animal
