The Animal Shelter of Wood River Valley is on a mission to change lives by connecting pets and people. We do this through innovative programs that inspire and have impact beyond our borders. The first "no kill" shelter in the State of Idaho, we promote 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. Founded in 1972, the Animal Shelter is funded almost entirely by private donations and grants.
