We are located in Canyon County, Idaho, 25 miles west of Boise.

About Our Rescue Group:

IDAWG, or the Idaho Domestic Animal Welfare Group, is a non profit 501(c)(3) corporation based in Nampa, Idaho. IDAWG has been in existence since June 2000 and is staffed entirely with volunteers. IDAWG supports southern Idaho animal shelters as needed, and also helps private citizens rehome their dogs. Sometimes this involves transporting or organizing transports for dogs or cats, or sometimes birds, to rescues or permanent homes in adjoining cities and states. IDAWG also offers financial assistance to senior citizens and others needing help paying for spay/neuter services for their companion animals.

Come Meet our Pets:

IDAWG is located in Nampa, Idaho, about 25 miles west of Boise. IDAWG is not a facility open to the public. The dogs, cats, and rabbits are fostered at individuals' homes. Appointments must be made in advance and only after the application process has been completed.

Our Adoption Process:

SELECTION:
Please let us know if there is a particular dog you are interested in adopting. We try to find the best match for you. When a dog is selected and your application is approved, this dog will be on hold while we have a home visit done.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
