Who we are

The Idaho Humane Society is the largest and oldest animal welfare organization and veterinary charity in the state. Our public veterinary medical center is a full service, affordable veterinary hospital that is open to the public 7 days a week. Located in beautiful Boise, Idaho, our 12,000 square foot state of the art hospital is well equipped and provides a wide range of services with a large and diverse caseload ranging from basic wellness care to advanced internal medicine, soft tissue surgery, as well as orthopedic surgery.

Our clinic sees both appointments and walk-in urgent care cases.
