Welcome to Kootenai Humane Society (KHS). We are an independent, non-profit 501(c)3, non-government organization dedicated to the welfare of animals. Our vision is to Create Lifetime Friends through Adoption. KHS provides quality humane care, rehabilitation, adoption, and education for the good of the animals and their companions in our community. We practice the No-Kill Philosophy.
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 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, 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.
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.

A No-Kill facility means that animals at KHS will never be euthanized for space reasons. KHS will humanely euthanize an animal without delay if it is irremediably suffering. KHS will euthanize an animal if it is a “vicious dog” who exhibits aggression to people even when the dog is not hungry, in pain, or frightened, and whose prognosis for rehabilitation of that aggression is poor or grave as determined by a canine behaviorist.
