The Petersburg Humane Association exists to eliminate cruelty to and suffering of animals by promoting compassion and kindness toward domestic and companion animals in Petersburg, Alaska.
The Petersburg Humane Association (PHA) is an all-volunteer group that organized in 1999 to serve as a focal point for finding solutions to those problems. Our ultimate goal is a town in which every companion animal has a safe and loving home. In the meantime, we are raising awareness of the needs of our animal friends, providing temporary shelter as we try to find permanent homes for animals without them now, and encouraging responsible pet ownership.
Our program has several facets, all working to benefit Petersburg's companion animals.
The major parts of our task are:
Care of homeless cats and dogs
Since 1999, our volunteers have cared and found forever homes for over 400 cats and dogs, and have helped owners pay for the spay / neuter of numerous pets.
