ANIMAL CONTROL Page Content Pet of the Week I’m mighty big and fluffy, If you don’t groom me I might look scruffy. I like the cold weather, my undercoat acts like a coat of thick feathers. I like to be the only dog; other animals make me growl and bob. Train me to pull a sled, Put me in a harness and Gather your gear. I would love a job to do, to make these muscles work for you!

At the shelter, the staff provides a safe and clean environment for animals anticipating an adoption, waiting to be reunited with their owners, under observation for rabies, or in protective custody. The staff also offers euthanasia services, live traps for rent, microchipping, and an annual rabies clinic. On the road, the animal control officers respond to and investigate complaints of loose, aggressive, noisy, sick or injured animals. The staff can also be seen throughout the community at fairs and other events. For wildlife concerns, contact Alaska Department of Fish and Game at 907-459-7200.
