To volunteer with the Idaho Humane Society on a long-term basis, youth ages 12-15 must have an adult volunteering with them. Once a child turns 16, they can volunteer on their own with parent/guardian consent.
We are currently revamping our Humane Education Booklet for students to compete for projects at home. We will have this updated by Fall 2022.
Check out these cool animal enrichment activities you can do from home!
Fundraising! Organize a car wash, bake sale, garage sale, or another event to raise money for the animals in our shelter.
Help fill our Pet Food Pantry cupboards! Organize a pet food drive to collect dog and cat food and kitty litter to donate to our Pet Food Pantry. The pantry supplies pet food to individuals who cannot afford it as well as to senior citizens who have difficulties getting to the store.
Recycle! Collect newspapers for the Idaho Humane Society to reuse as liners for our kitty cages. Or collect aluminum cans and drop them into our aluminum can collection cages at the shelter or at area Zamzows stores. We turn the cans in for money to help care for the homeless animals in our shelter.
Make blankets for our kitties! Our cats and kittens love to lie on handmade blankets. You can knit, crochet or tie blankets out of fleece.
