NEW APP ALERT!

Pet of the Week

WOW!

On June 1st we hosted 61 students from Hailey Elementary! We truly couldn’t have considered saying yes to a group this size and scope without knowing we’d have the support of our amazing volunteers: Bonnie Hovencamp, Molly Fields, Jen Barth, Robyn Marrelli, Claudia Klokke, Hetty Morgan and Max, Lisa Kimmel and Michael Kimmel. Students learned about positive reinforcement with our very own Hillary Hayward (and superdog Darlin’), visited an arts and crafts station, learned how to safely interact with new four-legged friends, socialized with our cats and played a very fun game of trivia focusing on humane education. To learn more about our partnership with the WOW organization, please take a look at their site https://wow-students.org/

FOSTER SPOTLIGHT: FURIOSA

Are you in the market for an ADORABLE, smart, outdoorsy new family member? Then please consider meeting Furiosa!  While she originally hails from San Antonio, Texas, Furiosa has proven herself to be a natural Idaho gal. She loves hiking, camping, playing with her foster brother/shelter alum, Bruno, and rides great in the car. She’s the perfect age (just about 9 months old- past poopy paws puppy stage) and the ideal size (25 pounds). Lucky for her, she’s in a wonderful foster home until her forever family adopts her. Her VERY experienced foster family says she is simply “perfect”. Furiosa will inspire you to get out and smell the lupine! 

If you or anyone you know would like to meet her, please contact us at the Shelter!

SUMMER PROGRAMS BEGIN!

Last week was the first Hikin’ Buddies of 2018 and it was a fantastic start to the season! All six dogs had a great time and Micah met her new family. You really cannot beat that! Paws around Town kicks off Saturday, June 23rd and we’re excited to continue our presence up in Ketchum. If you’d like to learn about our seasonal volunteer opportunities please email me!
