Education is a crucial component of the Idaho Humane Society’s mission to advocate for the welfare and responsible care of animals, protect them from neglect and cruelty, and promote humane awareness and compassion.

We strive to share the shelter’s mission and programs as well as teach younger generations about humane care for pets and safety around animals.
