ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) - Is a new furry friend needed as the long winter months continue? The August Foundation for Alaska Racing Dogs is in need of adopters for huskies.

The foundation helps find foster and forever homes for retired sled dogs that have run in the Iditarod, Yukon Quest and competitive sprint races.

Recently, the founders were told that the current headquarters of the foundation has to be vacated in April 2021, when their lease is up. While they search for a permanent solution, the foundation says they are in need of help. They are trying to find foster and forever homes for the dogs.

For more information on adoption or the foundation, visit their website or Facebook page.
