BOISE, Idaho (CBS2) — The Idaho Humane Society is celebrating its new complex with a grand opening that is open to the public.
The opening will be held Friday, March 6, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The new complex is on Overland and Maple Grove and will be home to IHS adoption, education and veterinary medical centers.
IHS will kick off the event with an official ribbon-cutting ceremony followed by dog training demonstrations, food and beverage trucks onsite, and limited edition t-shirts for sale.
You can also tour the facility and see all the new features, including outdoor exercise runs, deluxe catios and get-acquainted rooms in the dog dorms.
The veterinary medical center has doubled in size to help the increasing demand of low-income families. The Dorman Street facility will still be in operation and function for animal welfare services as well as intake, and stray or owner-relinquished pets.
“We are thrilled at the level of impact that our new campus has already made, especially for low-income families in this Treasure Valley. All those who have supported our mission and contributed to the new shelter should share a great sense of pride and achievement,” said CEO, Dr. Jeff Rosenthal.
