Pet Memorial Program

Pet Memorial Program

The Alaska Zoo wants to celebrate the life of your special animal family member.

Give to our Pet Memorial Program today and have your pet's memorial tag displayed on our Pet Memorial Board. Click here to email our Development Director and request your memorial tag today!

Our new Pet Memorial Program is dedicated to serving the companion animal community throughout Alaska. Donations are made on behalf of a pet that has passed and proceeds are used to enhance veterinary care for the zoo's animals. Your donation will remain solely with the Alaska Zoo and will help defray costs of our animal care.

When you donate $100 to this program, we will make a personalized pet tag in your pet's name. The tag will be displayed on our Pet Memorial Board on zoo grounds for one year, located across from the Sitka black-tailed deer habitat. You will receive a poem in the mail as a keepsake and reminder of our sympathy for your loss.

Please contact our Development Director at or (907) 341-6435 if you have questions or would like to order a tag. We are sorry for your loss and hope this will offer you a positive way to make a difference in memory of your pet.
