Homeless Animals Day at the Zoo


Join the Alaska Zoo and event partners for Homeless Animals Day at the Alaska Zoo!  Sunday, August 19th from noon to 4pm is all about celebrating what the Anchorage community does, and continues to do, for homeless animals! 

The Alaska Zoo and event partners have come together to provide a fun event for visitors and community members to learn about how we help countless animals each year, and how you can do the same! Come view some of the zoo’s orphaned babies that found a home this year at the zoo, as well as photos and information about pets currently in need of adoption in the Anchorage area.

Bring a donation for the zoo or your favorite adoption group and receive $2 off your Alaska Zoo Admission! For more information about this event contact Stephanie Hartman, Alaska Zoo Education Director, at (907)341-6463 or email We look forward to seeing you on Homeless Animals Day at the Alaska Zoo!
