Who we are...

The Alaska Humane Society was founded in 1979, and established its first shelter in 1988. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that operates a no-kill shelter and sanctuary for "orphan" cats. We accept cats on the basis of need, not adopt-ability.

Shelter hours are Monday through Friday, 7-9 pm, Saturday and Sunday, 3-6 pm.

Where do our cats come from?

Everywhere there are cats! Some have been surrendered by owners, some were found as strays wandering through neighborhoods, some were found abandoned in houses or apartments, and some were rescued from bad living conditions.

The Alaska Humane Society gives them care, food, medical attention as needed, and a home until they are adopted. Not every cat is adopted, and those who are not are ours for as long as they live. We are a no-kill shelter and we love cats!!! and each year we place more than 100 cats and kittens in new homes.

New volunteers are invited to contribute their time, energy and love to make our shelter a safe, comfortable and happy place for our cats.

Volunteers help care for the cats, clean the shelter daily, raise funds, write and publish the newsletter, publicize our work, and maintain our website.

* Due to liability concerns, we require that all volunteers under the age of 16 have an adult person present at all times.

Cat Care
Groom, health care, trips to the vet, shot records. The cats need to be groomed early. This works well for younger ones who want to help the kitties for a day or two.

Shelter Repairs
Appliances, furniture, carpentry, plumbing, paint. The shelter is constantly going through some sort of renovation. If you have any experience in building or repair, we could use your help.

Grant Writing
Internet research, fill in forms, track progress. Grants are a great way to raise funds for the shelter. This can be done from the comfort of your home.

Press releases, event advertising, arrange media coverage, public service announcements. Do you have connections in the media that can help get out the Alaska Humane Society's name? We need people who can help with event coverage, service announcements, event advertising, etc.

Fund Raising
Organize events, sell things, solicit donations. Alaska Humane Society is run completely on donations and is always looking for other ways to raise more money.

Make Sell-able Items
Cat toys, cat furniture, crafts. When we have booths at area events/markets, we like to sell cat-related items. If you are able to make cat toys, cat furniture, or crafts that can be sold, we can use your help.

Write articles, layout, illustration, printing. Twice a year, Alaska Humane Society publishes a newsletter. We need people to write articles, layout the newsletter, and help to publish it.

Public Speaking
Classrooms, special events, organizations, scout groups.

Volunteer Recruitment
Advertise, interview, schedule. We can always use more volunteers and recruiting volunteers extremely important.

Booth Sitting
Volunteer fair, special events, pet shows, Dog Jog, Saturday Market. We have many regular booths that need to be staffed around town.

Promote Adoptions
Publicity, photos, write cat profiles. Writing profiles about cats can really increase their chances of being seen on the web site.

Office Tasks
We always need people to answer phone messages, file papers, mail items, and write thank you cards. This can be done at the shelter or from your home.

We need volunteers who are willing to pick up cat food, litter, and cleaning supplies on your way home and drop them off at the shelter.

We appreciate your interest in helping the cats and look forward to hearing from you!
