Our Story

KHS was established in 1975 by six compassionate individuals who began our Adoption Center through one bake sale after another to finance our building brick by brick.  KHS became a 501(c) 3 organization in April of 1979.  And in 2003, KHS became a No-Kill shelter.

 

KHS is the lead agency for animal welfare in Kootenai County.  We provide care, shelter, and adoptions for over 2,000 animals each year.  KHS takes in surrendered animals from owners that cannot longer care for their animals or no longer want them.  

 

KHS contracts with the City of Coeur d'Alene and Rathdrum to house their stray dogs.  While in our care, these dogs have five days to be claimed by their owners.  On the sixth day KHS will place them on the adoption floor to find them a permanant home.

 

KHS does not turn away any unwanted or abandoned animal.  We also transfer in hundreds of animals each year from various locations across the country.  Many animals in other shelters who are on death-row find a second chance at KHS.
