This page is dedicated to an Alaska community working together to find forever homes for its animal shelter pets.

Shelter Pet Obedience Training is a program provided by the Hiland Mountain Correctional Facility in Eagle River.  They provide basic obedience training for many of our shelter dogs, which increases their chance of adoption.

Our Friends of Matsu Animal Shelter page is  maintained by dedicated volunteers of our Advocates team!  Within this page we recognize those individual volunteers, animal shelter staff, animal rescue groups, local businesses, and community service individuals, that make it possible to give shelter animals the best care and attention while they are temporarily sheltered at Matsu Animal Shelter.

Whether it requires foster care, media coverage, or actual work at the shelter, these dedicated people work tireless hours for the benefit of these animals.

We encourage you to join the volunteer team at your local animal shelter.

KIBBLE FOR KRITTERS!

People are experiencing temporary financial strain, so the community has come together to help out by providing food for pets.
