12 Strays of Christmas- December

‘Tis the season! …The season for ALL of the companion animals at the Idaho Humane Society shelter to find loving homes, just in time for the holidays. Follow along on KTVB Noon News, the Idaho Humane Society Facebook page, and website during the 12 week-days leading up to Christmas to help us find adoptive homes for the warm, friendly, furry 12 Strays of Christmas while making the adoption of Idaho’s shelter pets a priority. We also celebrate the 12 Strays of Christmas at our Holiday Adopt-a-thon, typically a Saturday in mid-December, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. All foster pets are onsite for adoption, some pets may have reduced adoption fees and there will be special treats, promotions in our See Spot Shop and a visit from Santa from noon-2 p.m.

Friends For Life Calendar Contest- July to October

The Friends for Life Pet Pix Calendar Contest runs annually, usually starting in July and closing in early October. All entrants are featured, some are selected as Monthly Models by the public, and some by a panel of local judges. Your $15.00 entry fee helps us care for the pets at the shelter year round. You'll find a slider with entry link on our Home Page when our contest is active. Currently, the contest is over and we have sold out of the 2017 Calendar.

Rattlesnake and Porcupine Avoidance Training

Rattlesnakes and porcupines are abundant throughout the area, especially in the summer. If you hike, hunt, fish, camp or live in a rural area, your dog may be at risk for a rattlesnake bite or the sharp quills of a frightened porcupine. Without emergency treatment, dogs can die from a rattlesnake bite. Bitten dogs may have to be treated for several days in the hospital, and costs can reach into the thousands. A dog detecting a rattlesnake can signal an owner to avoid the snake. Porcupine quills often work their way in and under a dog's skin, causing infection and in some cases, death. Learn more about awareness and avoidance during this annual class session held in Julia Davis Park by clicking HERE.
