AACCC and the Alaska SPCA hold PNY annually to encourage Anchorage pet 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.
