Mountain Humane’s Adoption Center will be temporarily closing to the public beginning Monday, March 16, 2020 to support the local community’s efforts to limit public gatherings. You can still get on our list to adopt by appointment once the shelter in place order is lifted. Please give us a call at 208.788.4351 or email [email protected] if you are interested in adopting from us. The nearly 60 animals currently in the shelter will continue to receive quality care to ensure they are healthy and ready for adoption when we reopen. Mountain Humane’s loyal and committed medical and kennel staff will continue to ensure the animals in our care receive the attention they need and deserve during this time. We look forward to reopening when the time is right and to having people come and interact with the animals.
