FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
December 13, 2019
The Idaho Humane Society has received an increasing number of emails, phone calls, and social media messages asking to help update animal ordinance codes for a variety of issues facing animals Ada County. Such inquiries range from concerns over pet limit laws to the recent controversy over a retail store selling puppies infected with the Parvo virus. The Idaho Humane Society shares the concerns of many of our constituents and we are pleased to announce that we will open a formal inquiry period for the public to weigh in on issues that matter to them.
Interested parties can discover the link to the survey here.
The survey will remain open until the end of January, 2020. Once we’ve gathered an official pulse in the Treasure Valley, we will move forward with data to the leaders of our contracting municipalities to discuss the issues most pressing to constituents in the Treasure Valley for ordinance changes.
Why is citizen input so important? While it is our mission to advocate for the improvement of laws to enhance animal welfare, and we are officially by contract required to advise local government on these issues, government leaders want to know whether proposed laws are important and supported by their constituents.
We appreciate your support of this survey to ensure Idaho is a place where compassion lives and kindness is cherished. The Idaho Humane Society is a private 501(c)3 organization that relies on donations to provide programs and services that benefit animals in Idaho.
