Celebrating 40 Years

October 1, 1979 - the doors of the Kootenai Humane Society opened to the public for the first time.  After years of fundraising, negotiations, and hard-work, a meager $64,460 was raised to erect a 5,000 square foot animal shelter at the end of Ramsey Rd.  Many changes have occured over the years.  Stop by and see how we care for the thousands of homeless animals that find their way to our doors.

40 Year Celebrations

Red Bandanna Giveaway


As 2019 progresses, many adopted animals will leave the shelter with their new families sporting one of our 40th Anniversary red bandannas.  Adoption 40 - 80 - 120 - and so on, will be the lucky recipients!  What happy faces!
