- About Us
If you found the animal in Ada County – including in Boise, Garden City, Eagle, Kuna or Meridian city limits – please bring it to the Idaho Humane Society. We have animal control contracts with these areas and can accept any strays that came from those jurisdictions. If you found the stray in another city, you can still bring it to the IHS shelter, but you will have to pay a relinquishment fee ($40 for a dog and $30 for a cat) or contact the animal control office or shelter for your area:
We hold stray dogs for 6 days while we attempt to locate an owner. On the seventh day, the dog becomes the property of the Idaho Humane Society. Because of the high volume of cats we receive, there is no holding period for cats. When a cat arrives with identification or a microchip, we will hold the cat for 3 days while we attempt to locate an owner.
