Protect your pet. ShelterCare Pet Insurance Programs


Over 450 dogs, cats, puppies and kittens were saved and placed in forever homes as part of the daily operations of the Humane Society of the Upper Valley in 2011. We also were able to provide $35,000 in spay/neuter assistance for over 1950 dogs and cats. We cannot stress the importance of this accomplishment enough considering the pet overpopulation issue that exists in this country. Four million cats and dogs, which is roughly one every eight seconds, are put to sleep in US shelters every year. These amazing accomplishments would not have been possible if it hadn’t been for our loyal supporters and their generous donations combined with our dedicated and wonderful volunteer staff who have devoted countless hours to helping these animals.

Who We Are

The Humane Society of the Upper Valley is a volunteer based organization that works to save the lives of animals in the Upper Snake River Valley. We work closely with local animal shelters and law enforcement agencies to save as many animals as possible. We offer spay and neuter assistance to aid in the fight against pet overpopulation, as well as pet food assistance to those in need. Also offered by the Humane Society of the Upper Valley is our 24 Hour message service which is checked and answered on a daily basis to offer help to people with pet-related problems. That number is (208) 681-HSUV (4788).

Adopting a friend

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.

Our Feral Cat Program

We supply instruction, veterinary coordination, equipment and financial support to property owners to trap/spay/neuter/vaccinate feral cats residing on or near their property. Anyone accepting assistance from the FCP must commit to providing adequate shelter, food and water year round. Also, when it is reasonable we will assist with the relocation of unwanted feral cats or otherwise unadoptable stray cats. For more information on this program please contact the program coordinator, Carole Pruett, at (208) 529-9650.
