In addition to the shot clinic, there will be many local vendors including groomers, pet product retailers, animal clubs, rescue groups, and more!  Local animal groups will be providing demonstrations, including the JBER Military Working Dog Section, Alaska Dogs Gone Wild (flyball) and training demos, and there will be door prizes throughout the day!  Come join the fun and get your pet off to a great start in the New Year!  

AACCC and the Alaska SPCA hold PNY annually to encourageAnchoragepet owners to microchip and identify their pets for the safety of the animal; a message both organizations promote throughout the year. Identification and licensing go hand in hand with the protection of pets. A microchip or tag ensures that pets are returned to their owners if they are lost. A municipal license ensures that the animal will receive medical care if it’s found injured. It also allows AACCC to keep the animal safely with us for a longer period of time before putting that pet up for adoption.
