We want to Thank everyone who has been so generous to the Kitty and K-9 Connection critters. Without your donations, we could not assist so many of our fuzzy friends. "THANK YOU" for your past and future donations.
Who We Are
Kitty and K-9 Connection is an animal rescue/foster/ adoption organization located in Anchorage, Alaska. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit; founded in August 2001 and is devoted to saving the lives of homeless and abandoned cats and dogs, finding them loving and lifetime homes, advocating for the spay and neuter of all pets and promoting responsible pet ownership. All pets have had medical check-ups, have been micro-chipped and vaccinated, and every pet is (or will) be spayed or neutered. Cats have been feline leukemia tested.
Adopting a friend
If you are intending to adopt a pet, first and foremost, thank you for considering the Kitty and K-9 Connection - A New Leash on Life rescues. Our focus includes pets rescued from Anchorage Animal Control, referrals from veterinary clinics, occasional sponsored owner releases (which are determined on a case by case basis and must meet specific criteria) and other community referrals. Our special focus continues to be assisting our local seniors with their pet needs. The majority of pets in rescue are fostered in our homes. Carol, with the help of her husband, Bruce, foster the dog/puppy pack, but we have been known to do both cats and dogs. We also have some wonderful foster families who donate their time, homes and love, which allows our rescues to experience a successful transition into their new homes. Our goal is to pursue placements into permanent, caring, life-time homes. When that final match is made, we then complete the 'connection'. The result is that the pet has a new home and the family has a great new family friend to love.
Yes, there is an adoption process and adoption fees. The adoption process is to ensure each pet is matched with the right home so the placement is successful. The fees are used to help another pet - making sure there is thorough medical care, good pet food, a warm bed, etc. We cannot help as many as we do without the financial support of the adoption fees.
Come Visit Us!
We are at Petco on Old Seward Highway for 'meet and greets' every second and fourth Saturday of each month. There are always Kitty and K-9 cats to visit at Petco's adoption center, and you will find us at various functions around town throughout the year!
