This is a small animal shelter with great volunteers. It’s located at the corner of Ten Mile and Ustick (by the water treatment plant). If you are looking for a new four leg furry member for your family OR if you would like to explore information about volunteering you don’t want to miss this great family oriented event.
If you have adopted an animal from the Meridian Shelter they are looking for dog ‘models’ for the Wine, Dine and Fine Fashion show on November 4, 2011. See the link for details.


Fall is the perfect time to go hiking in the foothills


Although it has been a very hot September, the forecast shows the weather cooling off a bit. Take advantage of the weather by getting up early and enjoying a beautiful morning hike in our foothills.
We like to have at least one adventure a week. On Saturday, my group of friends decided on a two-hour hike. We rounded up the dogs, left the teenagers sleeping (it’s safer that way on an early Saturday morning), and headed for the hills. There are many different trails available in the foothills. If you don’t have a favorite or want to explore additional hikes, you can visit the Boise Ridge To Rivers site for great ideas on hikes of all kinds: Explore your options and try different hikes that suit your ability. We like to go on the dog friendly trails so our canine companions get their exercise too!
