When you adopt a pet from KHS, not only are you adding to your family, you’re saving a life!


Kootenai Humane Society has some of the best pets anywhere and that means we have a variety of species, breeds, sizes, colors, and temperaments.  When you adopt a pet from us your adoption fee helps to provide medical care, food and shelter for the animals in our care and since we are a No-Kill shelter there is no time limit to how long we will keep an animal.  


Our adoption fees include:

  • Spay/Neuter
  • Vaccinations
  • Rabies Vaccinations
  • Microchip ID
  • Free first time check-up from a local vet
  • Free meet and greet with pet from your home
  • Free counseling after adoption for any questions


To adopt an animal from Kootenai Humane Society, you must be at least 18 years old, provide a current photo ID, and have a verifiable address.


We do require landlord approval! If you rent, please bring a copy of your rental agreement and proof of pet deposit stating you are able to have a pet. You can also provide your property manager's telephone number and we will place a call to verify that you are approved to have a pet and your deposit has been paid. We cannot put an animal on hold to verify that you are approved to have a pet, so please be sure to have all of that information prior to coming to adopt.


For all dog adoptions, we require a meet and greet to be done if there are other dog/s that will be residing in the same home. Please be prepared to bring your dog to the shelter to take part in the meet and greet.
