Welcome to Southeast Alaska Organization for Animals (SOFA)!
Southeast Alaska Organization for Animals (SOFA) is an animal welfare and rescue organization based in Juneau, Ketchikan and Sitka 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.
Southeast Alaska Organization for Animals, Ltd. was founded in December 2012 as a nonprofit organization in the State of Alaska and is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We bring together a strong core of individuals who have been involved in animal welfare and rescue for many years, and we have set our sights on some ambitious short-, mid-, and long-term goals.
SOFA commits to ending homelessness, abandonment, abuse and neglect of companion animals in Southeast Alaska through education, advocacy, community services, and improved access to veterinary services.
- Demonstrate respect and compassion for all people at all times
- Be proactive in identifying the underlying causes of animal welfare concerns
- Be creative in finding solutions to identified problems
Our success depends entirely on the support and participation of individuals, businesses, and organizations in the communities we serve. We aim to have a positive impact in all Southeast Alaska communities and inspire, support and partner with local individuals, groups of pet-lovers, and law enforcement - especially where there are no rescue organizations established.
Southeast Alaska Organization for Animals is a 100% non-profit organization. All of our rescue efforts are made possible by the generous donations of animal lovers everywhere. Donations that we receive go towards transporting animals to their new homes and getting them proper veterinary care. They also help cover all the expenses of spaying/neutering them as well as the cost incurred by keeping them in foster homes until they are adopted into their loving forever homes.
In addition to our regular rescue efforts we also run parvo and distemper vaccination clinics and MASH style spay/neuter clinics in surrounding towns that have no veterinary care. These clinics help ensure that parvo and distemper don’t continue to run rampant through Southeast and help to stop the overpopulation of puppies and kittens in our rural communities.
You can help us in little and big ways!! All of your help no matter how small it may seem makes a big difference in the life of one of these animals.
