It is once again time for Alaskans to file for their Permanent Dividend. As you do so, we would like to remind you about the Pick, Click, Give opportunity that is offered when you file online.
There are many worthy nonprofit organizations that help Alaskans and their pets each and every day. Alaska Dog & Puppy Rescue (ADPR) invites you to share a part of your dividend with a nonprofit, all volunteer organization that rescues dogs and puppies throughout the state of Alaska.
ADPR has been around since 2002, saving thousands of dogs. These dogs come to us in a variety of ways. ADPR rescues dogs from the Mat-Su Animal Care and Regulation Shelter, from the Houston Animal Protection and Regulation facility, and we have taken in stray dogs and puppies from the public. Some of these canines have come from various Bush communities - Bethel, Aniak, Kotzebue, and others.
Our dogs are placed in various approved foster homes, rather than a kennel facility. As a result, these dogs are socialized and often trained. All dogs are vaccinated, dewormed, spayed or neutered, micro-chipped, and medical care is provided if needed.
Our “Fur Keeps” program offers help to needy families by providing medical care, behavior modification training, or transportation costs for dogs and puppies. This service is provided to qualifying families to enable them to honor a lifetime commitment to their pets. All too often companion animals are relinquished to crowded shelters because their families gave them up for some reason. Through education, intervention, and action, we provide guidance and resources to help people care for their pets and keep them as members of their family.
In addition, we now offer a program, “Food for Paws”, which is a food bank for those families who have fallen upon hard times and are struggling to feed their pets. ADPR has given hundreds of bags of food, treats, and toys to needy dogs and families.
ADPR hopes that you will support us in our effort to reach our goal of no more homeless dogs or puppies in Alaska. By donating a portion of your Permanent Fund Dividend, you will have made a difference in the lives of many innocent creatures who rely on us to care for them.
