Have a Pet You Can't Keep?

Taking animals "out the road" and letting them go is sentencing them to a cruel death. If you have animals you can't find homes for and can't keep, please call 518-1091 and give us a chance to help.

Want to Walk Your Dog in a Safe Place?

The Petersburg Humane Association (PHA) has built and maintains a public dog park on land leased from the Petersburg Borough. There are fenced areas where dogs can play off leash in a natural setting. Or you can take your canine pal on an unfenced trail through the muskeg and back.

New Shelter Construction Project

These cats need your help!

Because the current cat shelter is on private land and the owner is preparing to build on it, there is an immediate need for alternate housing for our cats. The current make-shift structures can't be successfully moved to our leased land near the airport, so fund raising for Phase 1 of the new animal shelter is under way.

Phase I is a 16' by 24' cat building divided into three fenced "rooms" and a work area with sink, counter, limited storage and eventually a washer and dryer. The current estimate to build Phase I is around $70,000; we have already raised about $23,000.

Help Build a Path to Their Future

.

Commemorative bricks like the one above will be used to line the path to the new shelter. For a $100 donation, you can buy a brick to show your support of these animals with the dedication of your choice. For $200 you can get a double-size brick with twice the room for text and/or graphic.

For a limited time a donor challenge will match your contribution dollar for dollar, so your gift will go twice as far. Contact a board member to discuss your options or order online at thatsmybrick.com/pha.

All donations to this project are deeply appreciated.

Fund Raisers

Catnip Cat Mats

Two colorful fabric mats are inspected by a gray cat.These mini-quilts feature fun cat-print fabrics and a "secret" pocket for the included organic catnip. Cats love them, cuddling, kicking, chewing and generally whooping it up with them before curling up on them to sleep off all the activity. The mats are available for $20. Contact PHA by phone or email. Or send your address and a check for $22 to PHA, Box 1417, Petersburg, AK 99833. All proceeds go to the new shelter construction fund.

Leather Mice

A red and black leather mouse measures almost 1 foot nose to tail.These good-sized cat toys made of scraps of colorful leather are stuffed with top-quality catnip, providing long-lasting fun for most cats. Some make it their day's work to chew them up, starting with the ears. The mice are available for $10 from PHA board members. If you live out of town and would like to buy one, please send your address and a check for $12 (to cover mouse and shipping) to PHA, Box 1417, Petersburg, AK 99833. As with the cat mats, all proceeds will go to the new shelter construction fund.

Dog Toys

Toys made of rope knotted in the middle with two to four braided handles of varying lengths and thicknesses.Hand-made toys made of rope of various sizes are good exercise for both dog and owner. They can be thrown or just used for a rousing game of tug-of-war. As with the mice, the dog toys are available for $10 from PHA board members. If you live out of town and would like to buy one, please send your address and a check for $12 (to cover toy and shipping) to PHA, Box 1417, Petersburg, AK 99833.
