About Us

The Animal Shelter of the Wood River Valley is on a mission to improve the quality of life in our community by connecting animals and people. We do this through innovative programs that inspire and have impact beyond our borders.

The first “no kill” shelter in Idaho, the Animal Shelter promotes companion animal welfare by providing temporary shelter for homeless animals, adopting them to qualified homes and reducing animal abuse, neglect and overpopulation through community education and spay/neuter services.

The Animal Shelter is a place where humans and animals can connect.  Where that connection is honored and celebrated.  Where people can find their new best friends and animals can find that place to call "home". We envision a compassionate community where all animals are recognized for their inherent value and the human-animal bond is celebrated.

The Animal Shelter of Wood River Valley is a private, non-profit 501(c)3 corporation, funded almost entirely by the generosity of individuals.
