Everyone knows that there are some amazing dogs in rescues, especially for those of us that would like to do agility or be active with our dogs. Here is a list of dog rescues/shelters in North Idaho, please e-mail me or comment if you know of one that is not posted! Also, if you have a good experience with a certain shelter let everyone know!

    I thought I would take a moment to make you aware of Becky’s Big Dog Rescue in Athol, ID. I’m not sure what Becky’s status is as an organization, but will testify that the care, compassion, mission and benefits are excellent! I had the blessing of adopting a female Australian Shepard / Collie mix who has become this man’s best friend.

    Check out her website for more info..

  2. I helped start Little Long Dogs as a rescue in Athol or north of Couer d’Alane with training, time and sharing events to get Hoffman’s name out there as a new rescuer of our beloved breed of wiener dogs. We were turning awat 300+ unwanted wieners in 2005. I gave her a 12 year old longhaired chooclate Dachshund dog. Soon enough Ruth Ann Hoffman was reselling pups for another breeder and then started breeding pups with the dogs that she was entrusted to find homes. Because she became a puppy mill breeder using free breeding stock so our legit rescue cut all ties. Soon enough the dog we gave her was relisted for sale for $300 and listed as a six year old dog! Hoffman had lied 8 years off his age as Duckie, the dog, was not very grey. That was ther first of many fruads Hoffman committed with the dogs in her care.

    Many disgruntled and upset customers and six years later we have now rescued 12 of her “rescued” dogs, many were unfixed and no shots and not even close to being as promised. No legit rescuers sell ANY unfixed dogs at any time. Hoffman is still breeding many pups of mixed breeds and purebred Dachshunds now and reselling them, all pups are unfixed. If Hoffman is a breeder then list herself as a breeder and stop using web sites for rescuers like us and shelters only.

    There has been many run ins with animal control and the sheriff’s department in her area with her many unhappy customers as well. So please “let the buyer beware” when using any business posing as a charity and do your research. She also has an F rating with the Better Business Bureau probably for not answering her door or returning complaint phone calls after her sale on dogs that were not as promised.

    Please find a legit breeder or rescuer when getting your new family dog who will guarantee them like our rescue has since 1991.

    I volunteer for Northwest German Shepherd Rescue. Maybe you can add their link as well?

    We have even taken a doggy out of the Panhandle Animal Shelter and found a wonderful home for her.

    If you could add them to your page that would be wonderful.

    Thank you!

    I got my dog, Ellie, from Inland Northwest Rescue. MaryAnn, the lady who runs it, is an amazing dog lover who has saved over 700 dogs! She has been battling cancer but still manages to take in dogs who are in desperate need of finding a home, and she finds them dream homes. If you are looking for a herding type, you wont have to go any further than Inland Northwest Rescue.
