The great Mahatma Gandhi once said that “the greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated”. To seek to reduce the suffering of those who are completely under one’s domination, and unable to fight back is truly a mark of a civilized society. In Alaska, four animal rescue organizations aim to amplify this spirit of compassion through their remarkable efforts in saving and rescuing domestic animals.
In this episode of Explore My Town Anchorage, Alaska, our host Valesa Linnean explores the truly benevolent mission of Alaska Dog and Puppy Rescue (ADPR), Clear Creek Cat Rescue (CCCR), Alaskan Animal Rescue Friends (AARF), and Friends of Pets – Anchorage.
About Alaska Dog and Puppy Rescue (ADPR)
Alaska Dog and Puppy Rescue was originally formed as a Rescue organization to helpmeet the needs of the Mat-Su Valley and its pet overpopulation problems. The dogs and puppies taken in were literally saved from certain death. As an all-volunteer organization it hasn’t been
easy but thanks to hundreds of dedicated and compassionate volunteers
ADPR has continued to grow and succeed.
About Clear Creek Cat Rescue (CCCR)
Clear Creek Cat Rescue is a nonprofit dedicated to rescuing, caring for, and rehoming stray, injured, homeless and feral cats. They rescue and rehome cats primarily in South-Central Alaska from Houston to Homer. CCCR rescues about 500 cats a year.
About Alaskan Animal Rescue Friends (AARF)
AARF rescues dogs primarily throughout the state of Alaska, focusing mainly on the rural and bush areas of the state. They do not maintain a facility of their own. All their animals are housed either within their broad network of foster homes or boarding kennels when needed. They partner with local bush residents or other rescues, such as Bethel Friends Of Canines, to get the animals shipped in for a better life.
About Friends of Pets – Anchorage
Friends of Pets provides vital animal welfare and protective services for abandoned animals, with respect, compassion, and integrity. They intervene to reduce the euthanasia rates at the Anchorage Animal Care & Control Center, to promote responsible pet ownership, and to improve the quality of life for companion animals.
