The Animal Shelter of the Wood River Valley, the first no-kill shelter in Idaho, promotes companion animal welfare by providing temporary shelter for homeless animals, adopting them to qualified homes and reducing animal abuse, neglect and overpopulation through community education and spay/neuter services. More than 90 percent of our funding comes from private donations.
In 2010 more than 1500 animals received services from the shelter. This includes 388 animals that were adopted, 257 lost animals that were reunited with their owners, 247 shelter animals that were spayed/neutered, and 363 privately owned animals that were spayed or neutered at no cost to their owners, and over 6000 pounds of food distributed through our Paws for Hunger partnership with The Hunger Coalition. On an average day, the shelter cares for 35 dogs and 31 cats.
You can support the shelter with tax-deductible donations, volunteering your time, fostering and adopting shelter animals, and shopping at our Barkin' Basement Thrift Store.
From Main Street in Hailey, go West at the light in the center of town, on Bullion St. Cross the bridge over the river and continue about 1/2 mile and the shelter is on the right side.
