When people call in frantic about a lost pet … we answer.
When there is a community emergency … we stand ready to help. There is a continuing and enduring need for the shelter … we will be here.
No one would have guessed in 1985 when our current shelter was built, how many animals would find safety, protection and a new future through the Bitter Root Humane Association.
Sure. We have a roof over our head. But it sometimes leaks. We might have windows to look out. But they’re broken, cracked, single pane and non-energy efficient. Our walls have holes that let in outside critters. We have water lines running across the walls. And then there’s the boiler room … 35 years has taken its toll.
We envision not just kennels, not just a shelter, but a true safe haven for the lost, abandoned or abused animals and a “home” our community can be proud of. We have been dreaming of a new facility since 2006. We enlisted the aid of engineers & architects specialized in the field of animal sheltering and we have been saving & fundraising ever since. Although we receive no ongoing government funding, through the generous support and hard work of many, groundbreaking took place in March and construction has begun; we look forward to opening our “new” doors before the end of the year.
Our new shelter will include:
And much, much more!
In this time of uncertainty, there’s a fundamental truth that gives us hope – that the Bitter Root Humane Association is here to serve our community, through good times and bad and that together we can do extraordinary things.
We thought we had all the funds to take our dream from paper to reality. However, due to some legal delays last fall and the rising costs of materials and labor we have fallen short of our goal. Although we have raised 70% of our cost, now we must raise another $1,000,000 to fully fund our new home without debt.
All donations, even as little as $5 a month, will help us meet our goal!
