How Can You Help?

The animal shelter is a volunteer-led organization, and we are always in need of volunteers who can commit to helping on a regular basis. If you love animals and have time to help with dog walking, feeding, cleaning, and socializing shy pets, please call (208) 756-4100. If you would like to volunteer, the first step in the process is to fill out our volunteer application and return the completed form to >>. Please put ‘Like to Volunteer’ in the subject line. Once we have time to review it, we will contact you to set up training.

On-Line Angel
Don’t you wish you could take them all home? We feel the same way! However, there are just too many animals for any one household to accommodate. Perhaps your landlord won’t allow a pet, or your health won’t allow you to properly care for an animal. But you wish there was a way to help. There is! Become an On-Line Angel. You can help with the expenses at the Shelter for your “animal” until he/she finds their forever home! The Lemhi County Humane Society is a non-profit, charitable 501(c)(3) organization Fed ID# 82-0327764.

Look at the pictures of our cats and dogs on our Now at the Shelter Facebook Page. There may be one that speaks to your heart that you want to help. Become his/her On-Line Angel. We are able to accept donations via PayPal (link on the right side of this page or at our mailing address: LCHS, PO Box 1918, Salmon, ID 83467. Please include the name of the animal that has touched your heart!

Depending upon your financial abilities, we welcome one-time, monthly, quarterly or annual donations. Unfortunately we have had animals at our Shelter for a year or more waiting for their perfect family! Your generosity will be acknowledged on FACEBOOK with a note from your animal expressing their “Tail” of Gratitude. Be sure and tell us how you would like the credit to read.
