Mountain Humane, 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 Mountain Humane. This includes 388 animals that were adopted, 257 lost animals that were reunited with their owners, 247 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, Mountain Humane cares for 35 dogs and 31 cats.
You can support Mountain Humane with tax-deductible donations, volunteering your time, fostering and adopting shelter animals, and shopping at our Barkin' Basement Thrift Store.
