The Humane Society of the Upper Valley offers pet adoptions services to find permanent homes for animals that have been abandoned, found as strays or given up for adoption by their previous owners. We understand that sometimes a dog doesn’t work out for a family or special circumstances arise that do not allow a family to keep a newly adopted pet. The Humane Society of the Upper Valley will ALWAYS take back an adopted animal. Under no circumstances should an animal adopted from us ever be given away or discarded at a local shelter. We can make sure that animal finds a new home. We also work in conjunction with several breed specific rescues to get dogs to safety. We have had our animals travel as far as Pennsylvania to find their “fur”ever homes. Our adoption center is set up at the local Petsmart(located at 2410 S 25th E, Idaho Falls, Idaho 83404) every Saturday from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. All animals found at this adoption center are spayed or neutered and current on their core vaccinations. Since the Humane Society of the Upper Valley does not have a shelter, we rely solely on volunteers throughout the Snake River Valley to foster these animals and care for them at their own homes. Animals found on Petfinder can be seen at Petco on Saturdays from 11 to 4 or by appointment with the foster parents. IDAHO FALLS, Idaho - It's been a long time in the making, but the Snake River Animal Shelter finally opened its doors Monday.

Currently we can house up to 3 dogs at a time and 30+ cats at our facility, and we are working with the Idaho Falls City Animal Shelter to rescue unwanted animals. We are always looking for foster homes, people that can open up their hearts and homes, so that we can save the lives of more dogs and cats. A walking path around 16 acres of scenic property for the community to enjoy will be provided and eventually connected to the Idaho Falls Greenbelt. Education will be a large part of the existence of this facility. Teens will be invited to participate in the care and feeding of the shelter animals. Senior citizens will be the guests of the shelter as well, participating in programs that include the animals.The Snake River Animal Shelter cannot accept any lost or found animals. Anyone who brings an animal into Snake River Animal Shelter that does not have an owner will be directed to the Idaho Falls Animal Shelter upon arrival. Our goal is to help any lost animal be returned to their rightful owner and that is done through the Idaho Falls Animal Shelter. We are able to scan an animal for a microchip but unfortunately we do not have the resources to locate potential owners.With your support and donations we will open a unique facility in Idaho Falls, Idaho. Once completed, the animal shelter will offer a refuge for animals awaiting adoption. This combined with other services provided by the organization will reduce the number of animals euthanized annually.East Idaho Spay Neuter Coalition (EISNC) offers assistance for qualified low-income families residing in Bonneville County, Rigby, or Shelley with vouchers for feline spay/neuter services.
