This organization helped me when I was looking for a doghouse for my adopted puppy. Not only did they stop by with the house and some straw, they sponsored her spay surgery and continued to bring her dog toys and treats throughout the year. I have always been grateful for their help and would love to volunteer as a foster. Thank you Straw For Dogs!

These guys provide help to those who are trying to keep their pets and for those pets who need their help. This is a service that is desperately needed in our community.

Great organization that provides insulated, toasty cold-weather dog houses and supplies (straw, bowls, toys) for outside dogs that need extra protection from the weather. Anyone can request assistance for their own situation or for another dog on the neighborhood that might need extra shelter. Education and fostering (when needed) also available to help keep dogs and their people through the cold Alaska winter. Nice people providing comfort (in the form of shelter) to dogs that might otherwise be cold.

Straw for Dogs helped me when I rescued a friend's dog from the shelter when the owner could no longer care for him. They answered questions, and provided support to me during a transition process. They checked in with me to make things had been resolved. I would recommend them to anyone.

Straw for Dogs immediately responded to our email inquiry about one of their dogs who needed a permanent foster home. After spending the better part of an evening with us as we introduced him to our other dogs, we all agreed to give it a try. They were again easily available when our new foster dog became sick within days of moving into our house. Once that scare was over (and one neuter surgery later) we decided to officially adopt our old-timer and we still consider ourselves to be part of the Straw for Dogs family. It's such a great organization and we're so glad we saw them on Facebook.

These people really care about the dogs. Just looking at the before and after pictures makes me very happy to know that there is an organization like this in Alaska. They are making sure that dogs have a roof over their heads and a warm spot to sleep, which is very crucial in our very cold state! They are doing great work and I hope they continue to do so for a long time! Alaskan dogs thank you! Keep up the excellent work!

I partner with Straw for Dogs on many animal welfare issues throughout Alaska. The level of professionalism, enthusiasm, and creativity among both board members and volunteers is remarkable! Straw for Dogs fulfills an unique role in our state, and never fails to respond when called upon for support or assistance. They truly make a difference to improve the lives of Alaska's dogs every day.
