Who We Are
Kootenai Humane Society is a non- profit 501c3 organization dedicated to the welfare of all animals. KHS is NOT a government agency and we do NOT receive funds from the City, County, State or Government. We depend entirely on Grants, Fundraisers, income from the Adoption Center, Thrift Stores, and Donations.
Kootenai Humane Society is a well established, local non-profit no-kill animal organization which collaborates with city and county governments, and partners with other non-profit organizations and the community to end animal abuse and create better pet ownership by providing resources, training, programs and education.
Kootenai Humane Society recognizes that all life is precious and to that end takes responsibility as an organization to be a leader in animal welfare in our community. All animals are treated respectfully and given individual consideration regardless of how many animals are in the shelter. Animals are not turned away due to illness, deformity, disability, special needs, looks, age, feral, or social handicap.
Kootenai Humane Society is committed to offering lifesaving programs such as comprehensive adoption programs, low cost spay/neuter, medical and behavioral rehabilitation, foster care, feral cat Trap Neuter Return, pet retention programs to help owners to keep their pets, and volunteer programs that socialize animals, promote adoptions, and help with shelter operations.
Kootenai Humane Society provides fresh food, fresh water, veterinary care, socialization, toys, treats and exercise to all animals in the shelter for the duration of their stay. All animals at Kootenai Humane Society are vaccinated, spay/neutered, and micro-chipped. All dogs are behavior tested.
Kootenai Humane Society is committed to cleanliness to ensure that the environment is healthy and hygienic to the animals, staff, and the public and to prevent the outbreak and spread of disease.
Kootenai Humane Society fulfills these commitments by fostering a professional and compassionate staff and volunteer corps through training and continuing education, and maintaining a strong and supportive Board of Directors.
The mission of Kootenai Humane Society is to provide quality humane care, rehabilitation, adoption, and education for the good of the animals and their companions in our community.
