The Kootenai Humane Society is on a journey toward creating a new home for the furry friends in their care. It began with the purchase of a ten-acre parcel west of the Coeur d’Alene Airport on Atlas Rd. The new 24,000 sq. ft. shelter will accommodate thousands of animals annually. These abandoned pets are dogs and cats often rescued from life-threatening conditions. The shelter’s fully equipped veterinarian clinic will provide medical care so that these needy pets can recover and find loving homes. The Humane Society’s capital campaign seeks to raise $6.5M to finance the shelter’s construction.
The new Kootenai Humane Society shelter is expected to be complete by the end of 2020, depending on the success of their fundraising efforts. Those who would like to learn about the shelter are welcome to request a free informational presentation and tour of the present facility by contacting Debbie Jeffrey or Vicky Nelson at 208-772-4019.
The humane society does not receive support from the county or any government entities. It relies 100 percent on volunteers and donors.
