Their mission is to enrich the lives of companion animals through support, education, advocacy, and love. Their vision is that Spokane would be a humane community in which animals are always treated with compassion and respect. As such, they are committed to never euthanizing animals due to lack of space. Instead, they have developed strong partnerships to help them meet the needs of Spokane’s pets and promote a high rate of pet adoption. Because they understand the importance of animals in people’s lives and the need to reduce the surplus animal population through spay and neuter programs, they reach out to tens of thousands of individuals each year with these goals in mind.Kootenai Information with New Building Info
Kootenai Human Society is a completely independent, local non-profit, no kill, animal organization which works with the and county governments and partners with other animal welfare organizations and the community to help put an end to animal abuse and create a foundation of better pet ownership through resources, training, programs and education. Their goal is to provide quality humane care, rehabilitation, adoption, and education for the good of animals and their companions. They are not affiliated with Kootenai County government or the Humane Society of the U.S.
Kootenai Humane Society is currently raising money to build a new facility. The current facility is severely outdated and too small in capacity to properly care for the animals that they serve. The current building is expensive to run, and in constant need of repairs. Also, due to the lack of space, animals are sometimes housed in closets or offices.
The new building, that money is being raised for, will be able to house many more dogs and cats, as well as have facilities for caring for sick or injured animals. It will also have community rooms, catios (areas for cats to exercise and lounge in the sun), and 5 fenced acres for dog activities.If You are Interested in Helping the Kootenai Humane Society
