In our mission to save and protect animals, The Idaho Humane Society provides compassionate care to as many cats and dogs as we can. Thanks to donations from individuals and businesses, support from grants and revenue provided by non-income qualified veterinary clients, the Idaho Humane Society Veterinary Medical Center in able to provide veterinary care for the companion animals of families, seniors, and individuals in the community who aren’t able to otherwise afford veterinary services for their acutely ill or seriously injured pets.  

This standardized, income-based, sliding-scale fee structure for low-income clients provides a true safety net for many beloved pets, particularly during difficult economic times. Financial assistance is determined on a case-by-case basis. Recipients are awarded financial assistance based on income criteria and need.

Our Low-Income Veterinary Assistance Program can provide a percentage off of non-elective veterinary services for pets of families that are at or below 150% of poverty level. This typically means an individual making less than $17,235/year or a family of 4 making less than $35,325/year.

Access to our Low-Income Veterinary Assistance Program requires an application. You can fill out this application with a vet med center receptionist at the time of your appointment. For more information contact the Veterinary Medical Center at 208-342-3599.

Mandatory Spay/Neuter: All pets receiving any reduced fee service must be spayed or neutered. If the pet is not spayed or neutered the animal will be spayed or neutered at the IHS Medical Center while receiving services.  

Payment Plans: Payment plans are available to pet owners that do not qualify for CareCredit. Before you can qualify for an IHS payment plans, you must first apply to CareCredit. Learn more about or apply for CareCredit here.

EASY FUND: The Easy Fund was named for its late founding donor’s beloved dog, Easy—an adoptee from the Idaho Humane Society. The goal of the Easy Fund is to provide medical care for adoptable shelter dogs with serious, but treatable medical conditions that without such care would be un-adoptable, and also provide medical care for treatable dogs belonging to families that cannot otherwise afford veterinary care and might lose their companion animal to euthanasia without such funding relief.

Modern animal shelters aren’t just for housing homeless pets. The Idaho Humane Society takes a multi-faceted approach to addressing pet homelessness. Safety net programs that provide assistance to pet owners who are facing economic hardships, keeping pets in their original, loving homes are essential. The Easy Fund makes veterinary care for treatable dogs at many Idaho shelter, and those of qualified low-income families affordable and accessible. We hope you’ll lend your support too!

Please consider a donation to the Easy Fund to ease the suffering of homeless dogs and prevent their surrender to animal shelter, or, worse yet, the economically forced euthanasia of dog of low-income families in our community! Your generous donation can make all the difference for homeless, ill and injured dogs in your community.
