AELAS is proud to announce our partnership with the Petco foundation. Look for us with our critters for adoption, every Saturday at the New Soldotna Petco Store. Come say "HI!" and your pet is welcomed. Thanks Petco.
AELAS is currently working to establish an Emergency Animal Response / Resource Team (EART) for animal abuse investigations, prior to the Troopers being involved, here on the Kenai Peninsula. Currently 95% - 97% of the reports of animal abuse to the Alaska State Troopers go uninvestigated here on the Kenai Peninsula. Those figures are directly from the Alaska State Troopers here on the peninsula. This means many potential domestic violence and child abuse cases are not identified as well. Say nothing of the misery the abused animals suffer! There is a proven link between animal abuse and human abuse.
The Alaska State Troopers are not specifically trained to identify animal abuse signs. The Troopers do not have the time and or the resources to investigate all the reports of animal abuse here on the peninsula. To make matters worst here on the peninsula, there is no designated animal control or service provider to handle the abused animals for the Troopers. This Team will collect the initial data required, take photos and consult a licensed Veterinarian about each case. The EART's results will be given DIRECTLY to the Alaska State Troopers, if animal abuse is suspected. AELAS will handle the animals pending trial.
The Team will also respond to auto accidents or home and barn fires that involve domestic animals and pets. These animal pose a threat to public safety. Terrified animals act differently than normal. Animals that get into traffic cause auto accidents that hurt people. We need EVERYONE'S help to make this happen. I must add, this program is NOT KPB animal control. This program is designed for "emergency" use only.
Currently there are, as of 7/23/12, 5 cases of animal abuse being ignored by the AST here on the Kenai Peninsula.
Will this program be free to operate? No. It will be however, cheaper for the KPB than the $100,000 offered to the incorporated cities to simply accept borough animals. That offer was rejected by The City of Soldotna and the program was declared a dead issue several years ago. AELAS has 2 National Animal Control Association certified ACO's, one is a Licensed Animal Behavioralist, and a qualified shelter manager for the program. The participants in the program will be volunteers, no one will receive a salary. Each will receive a stipends to help compensate them for their time.
Aelas is proud to announce that the KPB now has a pet annex that is activated whenever a human emergency shelter is opened to accomodate the people's pets.
Make sure your outside pets have shelter, with lots of straw, water and food to ward off hypothermia and dehydration--it is incorrect to assume all dogs eat snow or that unalaskan breeds will adapt to our winters! If you have a question give us a call or e mail us.
Welcome to Alaska's No-Kill animal sanctuary for adoptable animals. No kill does NOT mean we are a warehouse for aging animals. It does mean that we will not put-down an animal because we have not found them a home yet. We spay and neuter all the animals that come through here. We are making a difference. Kenai Veterinary Hospital handles the majority of our animals.
We currently work directly with: The HSUS as an Alaskan emergency response resource, The Alaska SPCA in Anchorage, The Alaska Humane Society, Anchorage Animal Control, Houston Animal Control, Valdez Animal Control, Haines City Shelter and the 4 city shelters on the Kenai Peninsula.
We are IRS 501 (c) 3 approved, & State Registered, all donations are tax deductible! Our EIN# is 92-0178028.
We live here in the beautiful Sanctuary's 20 acres with lake front view, just 4 miles from Captain Cook State Park,
Please call to set up an appointment to view adoptible pets
AELAS ultimate goal is to bring about a time when all the animals have homes, and sanctuaries like this are no longer needed!
Please contact us to donate time or needed materials, monetary donations also appreciated!
Our wish list: small car 20+ mpg, good running condition, dog food, cat food, scoopable litter, pet beds, toys, blankets. Monetary donations can be given directly on our accounts at HEA and Kenai Veterinary Hospital (for spay and neuter fund) or mailed to us directly.
Please take a minute and donate something to Alaska's only NO KILL animal sanctuary so we may continue saving our favorite fury friends!
Contact us with the pet you are interested in and we will ask you several questions, as part of our pre-adoption interview.
Most of our animals are spayed or neutered except the very young. All we ask is that for any reason the pet does not work out you will bring it back to us so we can give it another chance at happiness.
