The Humane Society of Kodiak & Kodiak Animal Shelter is commited to preventing animal cruelty, reducing the homeless and abandoned pet population, and promoting the proper care of animals.
,The Humane Society of Kodiak has been in existence since 1993. Our organization was contracted by the City of Kodiak to operate the animal shelter in 1995, changing it to a â€œNo Killâ€ shelter for friendly, adoptable animals in 1997 thanks to community support. It is solely through memberships 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 itâ€™s entirety servicing 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 other implementation 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 board is made up of community members who enjoy the Alaskan lifestyle and have lived on Kodiak Island for many years.
