ABOUT US

​MISSION AND HISTORY
 

The Humane Society of Kodiak has been in existence since 1994.  Our organization was contracted by the City of Kodiak to operate the Kodiak Animal Shelter in 1994, changing it to a “No Kill” shelter for friendly, adoptable animals in 1997 thanks to community support.  It is solely through memberships,  fundraising, and donations that we are able to spay/neuter and provide other veterinary care for the animals awaiting adoption.  We are not members of, nor are we formally affiliated with the Humane Society of the United States or the American Humane Society.  We have our own bylaws and mission statement and operate independently to service Kodiak Island in its entirety, including the city, Borough, Villages, and the Coast Guard Base.  Our focus and the point to our fundraising is to prevent the cruelty of animals through education and by promoting responsible pet ownership, reducing the population of abandoned pets through spay/neuter programs and to promote the proper care of animals impounded at the shelter.  Our volunteer board is made up of community members who enjoy the Alaskan lifestyle and have lived on Kodiak Island for many years.

"The Humane Society of Kodiak is committed to preventing animal cruelty, reducing the homeless and abandoned pet population, and promoting the proper care of animals."
