Give a Wag! Gives to Coeur Dalene Shelters

Dedicated to animal welfare, the Kootenai Humane Society strives to accept all animals in need with open arms and create lifetime friends through adoption. Established in 1975, the local nonprofit serves as a safe haven for the homeless companion animals of Coeur d'Alene and the surrounding communities, providing shelter, humane care, rehabilitation, and adoption into permanent, loving homes. 

Kootenai Humane Society is a well-established, no-kill animal shelter. They collaborate with other animal organizations as well as city and county governments to ensure that every lost or homeless animal has refuge regardless of age, disability, illness, special needs, appearance, social handicap, or deformity. At Kootenai, each and every animal is treated with respect and compassion and receives fresh food and water, veterinary care, medical and behavioral rehabilitation, socialization, enrichment, exercise, and lots of love for the duration of their stay at the shelter. 

Before being placed in the perfect forever home, each animal is vaccinated, spayed/neutered, and microchipped to jumpstart their new beginning in a safe, healthy direction. The nonprofit works with the local community to end animal abuse and promote responsible pet ownership by providing resources, education, and training programs. Services for the community's pet lovers include a comprehensive adoption program, low-cost spay/neuter procedures, feral cat Trap Neuter Return, a pet retention program, and extensive volunteer programs that promote adoptions, socialize animals, and assist with daily shelter operations.

Together with the local community, Kootenai Humane Society works tirelessly to ensure that virtually every animal within their reach receives humane care and a responsible, loving forever home.
