City Council Member Thomson first brought the proposed changes to the code before Boise City Council in mid-2019 after consulting with the Idaho Humane Society and other stakeholders, but it never moved past a work session. Prior to the hearing, he joked that the animal code rewrite had almost become his “life’s work” because of how long it took to put together.
“These are all common sense changes, nothing radical and nothing that hasn’t shown to be successful in other states around the country,” he said, describing his rewrite as a “compassionate” animal code.
