BOISE, Idaho — The Idaho Humane Society (IHS) is holding a grand opening celebration of their new shelter on March 6 from 11 am to 2 pm. The public is invited to attend the shelter located off Overland and Maple Grove. The new complex is home to the adoption, education and veterinary medical centers.

The event will kick off with an official ribbon-cutting ceremony followed by dog training demonstrations, food and beverage trucks on-site, and limited edition t-shirts for sale commemorating the event.

“We are thrilled at the level of impact that our new campus has already made, especially for low-income families in this Treasure Valley. All those who have supported our mission and contributed to the new shelter should share a great sense of pride and achievement,” says CEO, Dr. Jeff Rosenthal.

The public is welcome to walk the facility to discover critical new features of the shelter, which include outdoor exercise runs, deluxe catios, and get-acquainted rooms in the dog dorms. The Veterinary Medical Center has doubled in size to help the increasing demand for low-income families.

The Dorman Street location still functions for Animal Welfare Services as well as intake for stray or owner-relinquished pets.
