BTAA waives adoption fees

| March 10, 2023 1:00 AM

If you are looking to bring home a new furry friend, now is a perfect time.

From March 10-24, Better Together Animal Alliance is waiving adoption fees on all adult pets to help them find homes faster.  

"While not everyone is in a position to adopt a pet right now, there are other ways to help and support these animals and find them homes during this time," Mandy Evans, BTAA executive director, said in a press release Thursday.

Other ways in which the community can help are:

• Visit and share some of the animal profiles to your social media accounts, or send them to friends or family members who are looking to adopt. 

• Consider becoming a foster home for animals in our community. When you register as a foster through BTAA, all food, supplies and medical support are provided — you just provide the home and care. Visit to register. 

• Donate to BTAA, this could be a financial contribution or in the form of food or other supplies. Visit to see how you can support animals in our community and check out BTAA’s supply wish list.  

• Volunteer as a dog walker, cat room attendant or help with other duties around the animal care center. Visit to learn more and apply.  

You can learn more about adopting a pet at BTAA by calling its animal care center at 208-265-7297, ext. 100, or by visiting
