Straw For Dogs

Straw For Dogs helps pets outdoors by offering supplies, resources, and education to their caretakers to improve the lives of their pets. Straw For Dogs is an all-volunteer 501 (c)3 nonprofit organization.

Our efforts are rewarded by wagging tails, smiling faces, and doggie kisses - just check out the pictures on this page and you'll see what we mean!

We'd love to tell you more about us so please take a look at What We Do and read about those we've helped.

There are many ways you can support Straw For Dogs and the animals we help: 


If you know of a pet outdoors in need or would you like assistance with your own pets, please complete our easy online Application for Assistance.

Straw For Dogs is excited to add fencing to the services we offer for pets in our community. Do you have an unused dog kennel or fencing materials? Please consider Straw For Dogs. Contact us by email or call us at 907-310-7294. Your donation is tax deductible and can greatly improve the life of a pet outdoors.

Many thanks to Petco Foundation and Kitty and K-9 Connection for granting Straw For Dogs funds for fifteen heavy duty insulated doghouses! Together we can make a difference for pets outdoors!


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.
