Meet Gus

Gus-a-mus is the sweetest, most lovable guy! Gus came to AHS from AACC and we were initially told he was 8 years young, however our fab vet let us know he is just around 2.5 years old! That is a big difference. His teeth are shiny and white and he definitely has kittenish behavior. Gus is all about giving the love, the snuggles and will embrace you in a gentle, tender way. He is a suPURReme biscuit maker and would delight in making the purrfect ones for you!

Update 3/20/24: Gus began his transition to our Main Floor and has been doing well. He is not minding the other cats so far. We will update again in another week.

We have not had Gus interact with the other cats quite yet, so we do not know how he will do. He was a stray at AACC, so there was no background information on him. We will update this once we see how he does as he transitions slowly to our main floor!

Our adoption policies and procedures are rigorous and thoughtful as our goal is to match you with a cat who will become a loving addition to your home for the rest of his/her wonderful life.

Seeing photos and videos are great first steps, however, meeting the cat in person and seeing if you connect is critically important. You may even want to visit the cat a few times to ensure you have made that connection.

If you are interested in adopting one of our cats, you will need to complete our adoption application and have that approved prior to placement. Submitting an adoption application does not guarantee placement.

We do not do same day adoptions.

Please ensure you have permission to have a cat where you live before considering adoption! We will need to see a copy of your lease agreement along with a contact number for your landlord to ensure the adoption is allowed.

All parties interested must meet the cat before adoption to ensure that everyone is in agreement with the adoption. If you do not live in Anchorage, you must come in to meet him/her before the adoption and make arrangements to transport him/her to your home.

AHS will provide behavioral support for the transition and throughout the adoption to ensure that everyone feels secure with the adoption.

Our adoption agreement prohibits declawing an adopted cat, and stipulates that the cat will be returned to us if the adoption does not work out. We also ask that cats be returned to us regardless of when the cat was adopted if the adoptive home is no longer able to keep the cat or is unable to provide him/her with the necessary healthcare to maintain a healthy and happy life.

AHS has an indoor cat policy. We strongly support the utilization of cat harnesses and catios as these are positive ways of giving your cat the chance to explore, get some fresh air and provide him/her with the benefits of the natural world while keeping them and wildlife safe and sound.
