When the city’s Animal Control contract was awarded to ALPS (a subsidiary of Doyon), Friends of Pets was invited by the municipality and the contractor to participate in that transition as an independent voice for the shelter animals. We worked with ALPS to assure a positive transition that would enhance animal care and improve public service. This working relationship continues to be an effective and dynamic one. During a rewrite of the Title 17 ordinance for animal control, we worked closely with the Animal Control Advisory Board on key points. We negotiated the renaming of the shelter to the Anchorage Animal Care & Control Center as well as helped to make mandatory spay/neuter of shelter animals a reality. Dogs and cats at high risk of being euthanized because of medical issues, behavioral problems or their remote location will soon be given another chance at a new South Anchorage shelter. I urged my kids to go with Mogley, a huge, motley-looking shaggy-haired adult cat I had fallen in love with at first sight as we scanned through the cages of adoptable felines at Anchorage's animal shelter. But poor Mogley was no match for what the children had spotted at the far end of the cat-packed room: a spritely orange, black and white kitten far less imposing than Mogley, whose scowling, scrunchy face scared them. Shelter operations are only a portion of Anchorage Animal Care and Control's annual costs, which until 2016 have held steady at just under $2 million with an average increase of $30,000 per year since 2012. This year, the budget is set at $2,108,450, an increase of $129,615 over last year to pay for an additional enforcement officer.
