It’s time to raise Idaho up!

Mar 2018

Join us in the campaign to build a new animal welfare campus!

After 36 years of “making do,” the dream of a new animal welfare campus is just months away from becoming reality! Thanks to the incredible support from our community both near and far, the journey is underway. We need your support to finish creating this amazing place to celebrate pets and the people who love them. A place where folks can connect. A place where friendships are made and smiles are abundant. A place where animals get a second chance at life.

And a place that will transform Idaho into a state where no healthy, adoptable animal is euthanized for space.

We encourage you to check out the video below – it embodies the hope, drive, and passion that the Animal Shelter provides to the community. You can help to stretch the mission far and wide and help animals all over Idaho by supporting this vision:

Remember to vote for Jo-Anne!

Feb 2018

Don’t forget to vote for our Executive Director/Medical Director, Jo-Anne Dixon, DVM, for the Wood River Valley’s Woman of the Year!
Voting is open until March 4th.
Click here to vote:
Jo-Anne left private practice as a veterinarian in 2006 to become the Shelter’s vet. Since then she has spayed/neutered more than 8,000 animals for both the community and adoptable pets.
Jo-Anne’s compassion, drive, and hope for a better future for both pets and people have steered the Animal Shelter into being a leader for animal welfare in our multi-state region. She works tirelessly to not only care for the animals at the Shelter, but to connect people with this cause and rally folks behind the Shelter’s mission. The Shelter wouldn’t be where it is today without Jo-Anne’s leadership.
From all of us who work with Jo-Anne day to day,
we hope you take a moment to vote for her. Thank you!
