About SRAS

It’s our mission to improve and save animal lives by promoting quality care and compassion through adoption and education in the Upper Snake River Valley.

The Snake River Animal Shelter (SRAS) is the only non-profit animal sheltering facility serving all of East Idaho, located on the banks of the Snake River in Idaho Falls, ID.  Our community needed a non-profit shelter that would offer education opportunities on the humane treatment of animals as well as implement innovative programs to alleviate the problem of too many unwanted domestic animals.  All of the animals that come to SRAS are given an unlimited length of stay, but our primary goal is to find every critter in our care a forever home as soon as possible. SRAS plans to launch a new “Keep Fido Home” initiative in January 2019 to help provide training to shelter animals, publicly owned pets and provide ADA certified animals for Veterans and individuals with disabilities. Currently, SRAS also manages the animal sheltering contract for the City of Blackfoot and the City of Ucon.
