Name Your Price Animal Adoption Event at Mat-Su Borough Animal Shelter
The Matanuska-Susitna Borough Animal Shelter will be holding a mass adoption event this weekend as they are over capacity of animals.
As of Tuesday afternoon, 237 animals were being housed in the facility which is why it intends to hold a mass adoption event on Saturday beginning at 12 p.m.
If community members would like to help, but cannot adopt an animal, Shelter Director Chris Loscar said the shelter is also looking for food donations to redistribute to individuals needing assistance to feed their pets. The shelter accepts new bags, as well as opened bags of animal food. Loscar said one of the best ways individuals can prevent shelters from being overwhelmed with animals is to make sure a pet gets spayed or neutered.
