Juneau State Office Mailing Address Update

All mail sent to the DEC office in Juneau through the U.S. Postal Service must be addressed to P.O. Box 111800, Juneau, AK, 99811. Beginning October 1, all mail addressed to our Willoughby Avenue address will not be delivered and will be returned to sender by the Post Office. This change only impacts incoming mail to the Juneau office.

The Office of the State Veterinarian (OSV) is part of the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation's Division of Environmental Health. It is responsible for carrying out a wide variety of programs protective of both animal and human health, which in turn safeguards the health and food capacity of Alaska's livestock, reindeer, and poultry, and prevents the transmission of animal disease to humans. 

The OSV operates within the "One Health" model. This model is a worldwide strategy which recognizes that human, animal, and environmental health are intricately related and seeks to expand interdisciplinary collaborations and communications across these health disciplines. This is demonstrated by the OSV's close working relationship with a number of diverse community, state, and national partners.
