Trapping Loose Domestic Animals

The Anchorage Animal Care and Control Center provides humane live dog and cat traps for nuisance animal problems. If you are interested in acquiring a live dog or cat trap, please do the following:

  1. Call the Animal Care & Control Customer Service line (343-8122) during open hours. Ask the customer service representative if the particular type of trap (cat or dog) is available.      
  2. Come to the Animal Care & Control center during the hours the center is open to the public. Deposits are required when checking out a trap and may be paid by cash, check, Visa, or Mastercard. Completion of an Animal Trap Agreement is required in addition to the deposit. The deposit will be refunded to you after the trap is returned.

Animal Control Officers will empty the trap as you catch stray animals. The Trap Agreement explains how to have that done.
