In August of 2015, the Idaho Falls community realized its dream of opening a second animal sheltering facility. Unlike other animal shelters, the Snake River Animal Shelter (SRAS) will provide an animal an unlimited length of stay, thus avoiding the need for euthanasia.
SRAS was built to take owner surrenders and transfer animals from other shelters throughout the Upper Snake River Valley, thus relieving overcrowding at the city operated animal shelters throughout East Idaho. We operate solely on donations, grants and sponsorships from businesses and individuals. This unique place offers adoption services and a place for the animals to socialize with each other and their future families. Education is a large part of the existence of this facility, educating the community about proper pet care and responsibilities. We also facilitate and partner in spay and neuter programs to alleviate the problem of too many unwanted domestic animals. Snake River Animal Shelter offers Elementary-age field trips, tours, and presentations and invites teens to participate in the care and feeding of the SRAS animals. Senior citizens are welcome guests and fulfill many volunteer positions that are essential for the care of our animals.
