Give a Wag! Gives to Palmer Shelters

The Matanuska-Susitna Borough Animal Shelter cares about pets! Affectionately known as Mat-Su Shelter, this rescue is contracted by the government as it is the largest facility in Palmer.  They offer an abundance of services like adoption, euthanasia, disaster preparedness, and classroom education programs.  They are actively seeking to expand their volunteer and foster network, and exist as the community's go-to spot for all things dog and cat.  Mat-Su offers low cost licensing and microchipping to support their campaign for all dogs living in the borough to be identifiable. 

Serving all of the Mat-Su Valley and outlying villages, The Alaska Dog & Puppy Rescue run solely on volunteer power. ADPR rescues animals from impending euthanasia and takes in unexpected litters. These animals are then provided with veterinary care and given a foster home until they are adopted.  In addition to their community advocacy, ADPR dreams of raising enough money to open a large, no-kill sanctuary as a refuge for all unwanted animals in Palmer.  They are a shelter run for the people by the people.
