Close [x]


There was a possibility of corona virus exposure at Panhandle Animal Shelter.  The shelter will be closed for adoptions until April 18th as a precaution. If you are an owner with an emergency that requires you to surrender your pet OR if you find a stray dog, you will need to call to schedule an appointment at (208) 265-7297 ext. 100. Because we are experiencing staff shortages, we cannot guarantee we will be available to take in strays that don’t have a scheduled intake day and time. If needed, please call Bonner County dispatch at (208) 265-5525 for assistance.  For more information on services we are still providing, click the button.
