Providing a "Cushion" for Southeast Alaska's Pets in Need

As of March 31st SOFA will be taking a short break from our normal intakes and adoption events due to medical reasons involving two volunteers and their families. We do still have a few pets available for adoption.  For a list of pictures and biographies please see our adoption pages. We are taking this opportunity to fill open positions on our board, plan new fundraising events and schedule veterinary clinics in southeast Alaska. We are very grateful for all the support we have received from the communities over the last year, and we want to ensure we are able to do more in the upcoming year! We will still be happy to answer emails or any phone calls during this time. Thank you from the SOFA team for everything you have empowered us to do.

Southeast Alaska Organization for Animals (SOFA) is an animal welfare and rescue organization based in Ketchikan and Juneau, Alaska, with a mission to serve communities throughout Southeast Alaska by providing animal rescue and adoption services, affordable vaccination and sterilization clinics, and supporting official and unofficial local groups with rescue and rehabilitation efforts.

SOFA works to be a positive, effective force for communities throughout Southeast Alaska.  SOFA was founded in the State of Alaska in December 2012 and is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.  Although we are young and relatively small, we operate with faith that the communities that we serve will support our efforts and that the lasting effects of our targeted programs will have a beneficial effect on the pet population of the entire Southeast Alaska region.
If you are interested in being part of a group that is passionate about animal welfare and rescue, here are a few ways that you can help:  

We are always in need of donations including food, new and gently used pet supplies, monetary donations, or volunteer time.  Our needs list is always growing!  

We also need families to assist us as foster homes.  SOFA does not operate a shelter facility, but we actively rescue and adopt pets in need throughout Southeast Alaska.  To do this we need loving families to provide a temporary home both before pets are available for adoption (sometimes it takes up to a few weeks to make sure that a pet is health, spayed/neutered, and ready to go to a permanent home) and/or while they are waiting to be adopted (which may be a short or long wait, depending on differing circumstances).  

Last, but certainly not least, we need your help finding responsible and loving forever homes for pets.  Help us spread the word about the advantages of adoption and the amazing pets that are available through SOFA!
