Humane Society


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, teach younger generations about humane care for pets, and safety around animals.

Contact us at [email protected] if you have further questions.

Our Humane Education camps take place at our Bird Campus located at 1300 S Bird Street, Boise, Idaho 83709.

Registration for spring break camps will open in a few weeks, check back for more details!

In these one-day camps, children will learn about pet responsibility, animal safety, shelter life, animal care and behavior and much more! Content will be tailored to the group of children, their interests, age range, knowledge and understanding of pets. Bring a snack and a water bottle and we’ll see you at our new shelter, 1300 S. Bird Street in the Education wing.

Year-Round Break Camps

Campers will learn about the shelter, partake in service projects, create enrichment for our shelter animals, and have hands-on learning opportunities. (coming back in 2023)

Camp Counselors must be at least 13 years old by the start of the camp, be a volunteer of the Idaho Humane Society, and attend a Camp Orientation.
