Pets is dedicated to paying for spaying and neutering of dogs and cats
in order to eliminate the killing of healthy, adoptable pets at Alaska’s
animal control centers. Our secondary mission is to educate pet owners
and potential pet owners about pet care, pet-related issues, training,
pet overpopulation, and other concerns in order to better the lives
of pet owners, pets, and the community. Specifically, as outlined in
our bylaws, STOP’s objectives and purposes are the following:
To reduce pet overpopulation by assisting pet owners with the
cost of spaying and neutering of dogs and cats. (We
have sent out over 2,200 spay/neuter vouchers. Can you help
us by donating?)
To educate pet owners about the problem of pet overpopulation
and the need for spaying and neutering of dogs and cats.
To promote humane care of and responsibility toward pets by
To educate pet owners and others about responsible pet ownership,
animal-related issues, training, and pet care.
To provide emergency food for dogs and cats whose owners cannot
afford it (not yet funded, but we hope to receive

Anchorage Pet Expo - June 2013: STOP has a booth. We need "freebies" and things to sell. Do you have any ideas or donations? Please contact us if so!
To help end the killing of healthy dogs and cats at Alaska's animal control centers, we have continued to provide our $20 - $40 spay/neuter vouchers to all who need the help to get their pets spayed. We are the only organization to provide this service statewide. As you can see from our veterinarian list, we have vets in Fairbanks, Valdez, the Kenai, the Mat-Su, and other areas to help serve those who need our support.
Whether or not it is to STOP, if you can consider donating something to a spay/neuter program or humane society, that will be a kindness that will be meaningful and pure. Although those who help support animal causes or who rescue homeless dogs and cats are not often or publically praised or financially rewarded for their efforts. Thank you for helping those who cannot help themselves.

Note: To allow more pets to be spayed and neutered, we ask that you only apply for our vouchers if you can't afford the surgery otherwise. No proof of income is required, however. Also, our vouchers are not to be used with any other program, such as SNIP (Fairbanks area) , SPCA Spay Clinic and Friends of Pets (Anchorage). Contact those organizations directly to use their programs intead.

Prayer for Animals
our humble prayer, O God, for
our friends the animals, especially for
animals who are suffering; for any that are
hunted or lost or destroyed or frightened
or hungry; for all that must be put to death.
We entreat for them all Thy mercy and pity
and for those who deal with them we ask
a heart of compassion and gentle hands and
kindly words. Make us, ourselves, to be true
friends to animals and so to share the
blessings of the merciful. -Albert Schweitzer
