The Idaho Humane Society is the largest and oldest animal welfare organization and veterinary charity in the state. Our public veterinary medical center is a full service, affordable veterinary hospital that is open to the public 7 days a week. Located in beautiful Boise, Idaho, our 12,000 square foot state of the art hospital is well equipped and provides a wide range of services with a large and diverse caseload ranging from basic wellness care to advanced internal medicine, soft tissue surgery, as well as orthopedic surgery. Working at our practice might look a little different than your typical private practice, but that’s what helps us make a difference in the community we serve. Our clinic sees both appointments and walk-in urgent care cases.

The Idaho Humane Society is a community-supported open-door facility that provides shelter, medical care, adoption services, humane law enforcement services and much more to over 10,000 animals annually. Since its incorporation in 1945, the Idaho Humane Society has become one of the most recognized and beloved nonprofit organizations in the community.
The mission of the Idaho Humane Society is to advocate for the welfare and responsible care of animals, protect them from neglect and cruelty, and promote humane education, awareness, and compassion. We believe that because domestic animals are a product of human intervention, we have a special obligation to them in regard to humane treatment and responsible stewardship.
