What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Adoption

We take in unwanted stray animals and owner relinquished animals from members of the public who no longer want their animals. All animals receive a medical and behavior assessment before going up for adoption. All cats, dogs, and some small animals are spayed or neutered, up to date on all core vaccines, and micro chipped before they are adopted out.

The City and Borough of Juneau (CBJ) contracts with Juneau Animal Rescue to provide animal control and protection services for its community. Animal Control Officers provide enforcement of the CBJ Animal Control and Protection ordinances. Officers are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to provide services and protection to animals in the community. They also provide services to individuals having difficulties with an animal or its owner(s). Officers respond to all types of animal related cases, including but not limited to: bites to humans, bites to animals, stray animals, injured animals, suspected abused or neglect, abandoned and lost animals. During Fiscal Year 2020 Animal Control Officers responded to 5,420 calls for action, impounded 272 animals, and returned 357 animals safely to their owners.

Juneau Animal Rescue provides shelter and care for domestic animals in the City and Borough of Juneau. We are the only bricks and mortar shelter in Juneau, and the largest shelter in Southeast Alaska. We are an open admission shelter, meaning we will take any animal that is surrendered to us, found without an owner, or found to be abandoned, neglected or abused. All animals in our care receive a basic heath exam and are vaccinated. If they are not claimed, they go into our adoption program where they stay until we can find them a good home. All dogs, cats, ferrets, rabbits and some small animals are spayed or neutered and microchipped. Dogs adopted from us are also required to be licensed before leaving the premises. During Fiscal Year 2020, the shelter took in 221 owner surrendered animals and 119 unclaimed impounded animals and adopted out 332 animals to new homes. Juneau Animal Rescue also provides limited support to animals in communities throughout Southeast Alaska, occasionally taking in unwanted or neglected animals from outlying communities.

Population(s) Served

The Juneau Animal Rescue clinic is responsible for the health and welfare of all animals, both shelter and privately owned, that reside in the shelter. Last year we provided emergency care, assistance with training or behavior issues, and low-cost rabies vaccinations and microchips to over 350 animals. In the case of incarcerated or individuals temporarily in public or private shelters, we provide boarding services along with some limited medical services at a reduced cost. We partner with a local veterinary clinic to provide low-cost spay and neuter services and vaccinations to income qualified individuals. We also occasionally provide consulting services to shelters in other communities throughout Southeast Alaska in order to help them with a variety of animal related issues.
