Alaskans helping Alaskans-together we can make a difference for pets outdoors!

With help from these great businesses, Straw For Dogs was able to help some dogs in the Alaskan rural communities of Kotzebue and Nome by sending 10 doghouses to Paws of Nome, 10 to Canine Comfort, LLC in Aniak and 20 to Friends of Kotzebue K9

We designed postcards with care tips for them to distribute and sent long lasting toys, treats, collars, cable tie outs and bowls- supplies for 20 + care packages !

All thanks to a generous grant from the Humane Society of the United States, funded through the Lowell Fund.



Foster homes needed that can help teach indoor skills to a dog who has spent most of their time outside. We provide vetting, supplies, support and training: foster volunteers give a dog in need a loving, patient and temporary home. Most of our outreach dogs adjust right away to life in our refuge and rehoming program. If you have ever wanted to help a pet living outdoors, now is the perfect time to open your heart and home. Please email us to find out more!

Together, we can make a difference for pets outdoors.
