Who We Are

Paw in Hand Quote 1600x689_edited.jpg

Helping Idaho Dogs, Inc. is a non-profit organization committed to improving the human-canine relationship through our programs supporting the Treasure Valley area of southwest Idaho.  Our all-volunteer team of individuals and nationally certified therapy dog teams provide education, support, and comfort with ready smiles and wagging tails.

Our Programs

Community Events

Helping Idaho Dogs hosts and participates in community events.   We support our community by providing therapy dog visits, education, and resources at  community events.

Humane Education 

Helping Idaho Dogs provides age appropriate education on how to safely interact with dogs, be a responsible pet owner, and how to interpret a dog’s body language – building relationships of love, trust, and respect. 

Therapy Dog Visits

Helping Idaho Dogs  strives to connect our certified therapy dog teams to locations requesting one-time or recurring visits from therapy dogs to bring the mental and physical enrichment, joy, and comfort our therapy dog teams can bring. We provide  mentoring, support and encouragement to our certified therapy dog teams  to keep our teams current with the latest   certification skills.

In Memory of Heiko, Nancy C donated the proceeds from his homemade cart to the Maui Humane Society.   Nancy C. has volunteered foat the Maui Humane Society in the past and they are truely remarkable to have cared for 4,010 animals last year.
