Independence Day Weekend Reminder: Fireworks and Pets Don’t Mix

As we approach the holiday weekend, please remember that July 4th celebrations can be a potentially dangerous and frightening time for pets. While fireworks are not allowed within the Municipality of Anchorage, many people travel with their pets to see family, camp, and enjoy the holiday. Help ensure the health and safety of your pet by following these tips:

  • Keep your pet in a SECURE and quiet setting, like your home (make sure all windows and doors are closed);
  • Turning on a television or radio can mask the noise of fireworks, helping keep your pet calm;
  • Be certain your pet has a current MOA dog license, a current identification tag, and its rabies tag securely fastened to its collar;
  • In the unfortunate event that your pet does escape, check with the Anchorage Animal Care and Control Center ASAP; and
  • While the Center can be reached by phone at 343-8122, it is always best to come in person to look for your dog or cat every 2-3 days, as no one can identify your animal better than you.

AACCC will be closed to the public on Friday, July 4. We will reopen for our regular hours on Saturday, July 5. AACCC normal business hours are Monday-Friday, 11:00am-7:00pm and Saturday-Sunday, 10:00am-6:00pm. Please direct further questions to AACCC at 343-8122 or access information on our website, www.muni.org/animal.

Pet of the Week – Boots (A187857)

UPDATE 6/19:  Boots will now be available through our partner, the Alaska SPCA.  Good luck Boots!

Here is the KFAT 92.9 and Wolf 96.3 Pet of the Week:

Boots (A187857)

Please meet Boots, a 2 year old, neutered male, domestic longhair cat.  Boots loves attention. He is outgoing and affectionate, not to mention strikingly handsome! Boots is curious and good-natured. This is one cool kitty – he makes himself comfortable in his surroundings and enjoys sprawling and sleeping on his back. This fifteen pound cutie loves to be brushed and otherwise adored. If you’re looking for a self-assured, confident kitty that is interactive and engaging, come in and meet Boots!  Boots can be adopted for $62, as he is already neutered, which includes his vaccinations and microchip.

Meet the Real Housepets of Alaska!

Animal Care and Control Center (AACCC) is launching two public service announcements in partnership with Friends of Pets, David Jensen Photography, and local film company, SprocketHeads.  AND HERE THEY ARE!!

In “Get Real”, we meet the Real Housepets of Alaska.  These fab critters have their doctors on speed dial and encourage others to get some “work done”.  A little nip, a little tuck and no more loose kittens or puppies!  That’s right, all pets need to be spayed or neutered!

In “ACATemy Awards”, we listen in as Sassy accepts her Lifetime Achievement Award.   Only 10% of “stray” cats brought into AACCC are claimed by their owners.  In thanking her family for helping her get through the last 15 years, Sassy reminds cat owners to get ID and look right away when cats go missing.

Both public service announcements have been provided to local television and radio stations for immediate release.  They can also be viewed on the AACCC website, www.muni.org/animal.

New Campaign Starts Today!

We are launching our new public service announcement campaign today!  Here’s a sneak peak of our two ads!  Watch for these flyers around town!  We’ll be posting the matching videos later today!  Thanks to our partners that made these ads possible:  Friends of Pets – Anchorage, David Jensen Photography, SprocketHeads, LLC!!

Pet of the Week – Chatta (A147183)

UPDATE 4/19:  Chatta has been adopted!

Here is the Anchorage Daily News Dog Blog Pet of the Week:

Chatta (A147183)

Please meet Chatta, a 6 year old, spayed female, pit bull mix.  Friendly, happy and outgoing, this girl is a big love sponge! She’s lived with another dog and kids, doing well with all. Attentive, walks great on her leash, sits nicely for treats and takes them gently. Really wants to please. She likes riding in the car, too. Affectionate–very loveable and will give kisses!  Chatta can be adopted for $72, as she is already spayed, which includes her MOA license, vaccinations, and microchip

Pet of the Week – Lark (A186957)

UPDATE 4/21:  Lark has been adopted!

Here is the KFAT 92.9/Wolf 96.3 Pet of the Week:

Lark (A186957)

Just in time for Spring, you can bring home your own Lark!  The bird variety of lark is known for its song, and this gorgeous kitty Lark has a purr that sounds like a trill which she uses often.  She is very distinctive looking, almost a brown tabby with stripes and spots overlaid on patches of orange, with VERY soft fur. Lark is very affectionate and loves to be brushed, petted and will head bump and rub on her people to let them know she loves the attention. Her feet are often moving – she likes to knead even while standing. If you are looking for an affectionate, loving cat with a happy-go-lucky personality, Lark may be the perfect match for you!  Lark can be adopted for $62, as Friends of Pets is donating the cost of her spay surgery!  Her adoption fees include her vaccinations and microchip!
