ANIMAL CONTROL Page Content Pet of the Week Luna and Sol are two young red-eared sliders who are looking for a dedicated home! These turtles live up to (and sometimes over) 50 years if properly cared for! Semi-aquatic turtles require special supplies such as a large tank, a heavy duty filter, basking and UVB lights, as well as a water heater to maintain an ideal living environment. Their water needs to be changed regularly. Red-eared sliders can be friendly and interactive if their family interacts with them regularly! Luna and Sol are very curious but have not been handled often. They are hoping to find a loving person that is ready for a long term commitment! Animal Control News No items found.

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.
