Our next steps forward are right around the corner!


We are excited to inform you, our Campaign Insiders, that the public hearing with Blaine County Planning and Zoning to consider our conditional use permit application is scheduled for Thursday, December 8, 2016 at the Blaine County Courthouse located at 206 1st Avenue South in Hailey, ID.

We have been working tirelessly with our architect and exceptional building team to bring us to this important step towards building the new and much needed animal welfare campus. Thanks to the generosity of many, the campaign has received more than $10.2 million in donations and pledges. We need $12 million to break ground this spring 2017.
