The Shelter Fund

Founded in 2002, the Shelter Fund is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit striving to make a difference in the lives of all animals who are in the Fairbanks North Star Borough Animal Shelter by augmenting services which are not included in the FNSB operating budget.

To donate to The Shelter Fund, please visit their website or use the green donation box located inside the shelter lobby.  

The Pet Pantry

The Pet Pantry is very similar to a food/supply bank.  Items that are often donated are pet food, cages, accessories, leashes, bowls, blankets, etc.  The items are available to those in need and donated items are greatly appreciated by the community.  Our Pet Pantry is located on the far side of the building near the Intake door and is completely self serve.
