These days, you need ID for just about everything, and that goes for our pets as well!  Anchorage Animal Care and Control Center (AACCC) is launching two public service announcements in partnership with Friends of Pets and local film company, SprocketHeads.  The first of the two humorous ads has already gone out to local TV stations, and the second is to be launched soon.  Both are featured on this page. 

In 2009, only 37% of stray animals brought to AACCC were claimed by their owners.  Many of the thousands of stray or lost pets that come to AACCC clearly come from homes where they are cared for, trained, and loved.  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 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.
