ANIMAL CONTROL Page Content Pet of the Week Willow is a beautiful long legged girl who loves to run and play! She found herself at the shelter because her family had separated and were no longer going to live where a pet could be kept. She is a German shepherd mix and has shown us personality traits indicative of that breed while at the shelter. She is very sensitive and has some anxiety, getting very attached to her special people. Willow is also very vocal, intelligent and food motivated! She loves to play ball and learn new games! Willow does not play well with other dogs, cats or small children. She is looking for a special home where she can be the one and only child/pet with an active person to keep her busy!

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.
