STOP the Overpopulation of Pets is dedicated to paying for spaying and neutering of dogs and cats in order to eliminate ACW50193the killing of healthy, adoptable pets at Alaska’s animal control centers.

According to a research foundation, over 4 million dogs and cats are euthanized in the U.S. every year. This number is less than what it was 20 years ago, due to the increasing availability of spay and neuter programs, including those that provide reduced cost procedures. However, the number of animals euthanized reached a plateau in the 1990s and is no longer decreasing.

Together, we can end the killing of healthy, adoptable pets in Alaska!


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.


In 14 years, we have helped spay & neuter over 4,500 dogs and cats.
Can you help us by donating? Or just by being kind.


Together, we can STOP the overpopulation of pets and save millions of lives!

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 the SPCA Spay Clinic and Friends of Pets (Anchorage). Contact those organizations directly to use their programs instead.

Please donate if you can. All donations are tax-deductible. STOP is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) organization that has been paying to spay and neuter Alaska’s pets since 2002.
