The Idaho Humane Society already has the land it needs to construct a new animal welfare facility in Boise—it just needs the funds to build.
IHS is poised to establish an up-to-date location at 8506 Overland Road that will provide pet adoption, shelter and low-income animal medical care, and has raised more than $6 million to build the facility. But the total cost of the proposed center is expected to exceed $11 million.
Officials at IHS say the fundraising campaign, Design to be Kind, may be completed as early as 2016, and that construction on the new location could begin soon after that.
To kickstart the second phase of fundraising for the new facility, Mayor Dave Bieter, IHS supporters Frances and Roy Ellsworth, and IHS Boise's CEO Dr. Jeff Rosenthal will announce the new shelter at the new location Wednesday, May 28.
