Best local non-profit organization

Idaho Humane Society

Readers' Picks

The little kitties and puppies have an obvious pull on readers' heartstrings, but who can blame you? You gave the Idaho Humane Society the title of best do-gooder group, yet again. Year after year, this nonprofit tops the list for its tireless work protecting our fuzzy friends--everything from stray cats to bobcats and wolves. These guys operate in a state that just banned cock fighting in 2008 and may, someday, ban canned hunts, so they deserve extra kudos.
