The mission of the Idaho Humane Society is to advocate for the welfare and responsible care of animals, protect them from neglect and cruelty, and promote humane education, awareness and compassion.
We believe that because domestic animals are a product of human intervention, we have a special obligation to them in regard to humane treatment and responsible stewardship.
The Idaho Humane Society will continue to grow and meet the demand to shelter, feed, provide medical attention to, and find adoptive homes for abandoned and abused animals; to educate Idahoans about the proper care of their own pets; to prevent animal overpopulation and to promote kindness to animals. We envision a humane Idaho in which healthy and adoptable animals no longer must be euthanized, and both domestic animals and wildlife are treated with compassion and respect.
