Animals at the Shelter



Tucker Chapter 2


He now thinks I am his human.

I am a stern but caring presence

in his life, that is what he needs.

In thinking I am his human,

He is protective of me now.

He got loose from a Volunteer

while on a walk yesterday.

No fault, weather and footing.

Instead of running back where he

came from close by, he returned

to the Shelter and called for me.

Would you be the one he

calls for in the future? Can you be

a stern but caring presence?







Lost Pets

Adoptions at the Sitka Animal Shelter are by appointment only by calling 747-3567. If no one is at the Sitka Animal Shelter when you call, leave a message and the Shelter Director or staff member will return your call to set up an appointment. You are welcome to make an appointment to view any animal. Please click here for more information on adoption procedures.

If you are missing an animal, please call the shelter to get the most current information on lost pets that have been turned in. All animals are held according to the Sitka Animal Shelter Holding Policy.

If you find a lost animal, there is a double rabbit hutch at the shelter to put small lost animals in when the shelter is closed. There is also a fenced kennel area to confine rescued lost dogs for their safety.


"Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened."
