Better Together Animal Alliance

Better Together Animal Alliance Better Together Animal Alliance (formerly Panhandle Animal Shelter) is dedicated to serving the animals of North Idaho. Our programs are focused on keeping families together and though sheltering is still part of our services we want sheltering to be a small part of what we do because our work keeps families together.

Join us for a free microchip clinic tomorrow!
The best way to ensure the quick and safe return of your pet is to have them microchipped with up-to-date information. To help ensure our community has access to this important service, Better Together Animal Alliance (BTAA) is hosting free microchip clinics. Funds for these clinics were made possible through a generous grant from the ASPCA Northern Tier Shelter Initiative.

💖💖💖MEET EARL!💖💖💖

Hi there whipper snapper! My name is Earl. I have finally retired at tender age of 12 as a park ranger and devoted my spare time to watching Antiques Roadshow and having dinner at Hometown Buffet with the boys every Tuesday. Hometown has a really good senior discount and I'm a fan of their mashed taters. Being that I'm a senior I am slower moving and low maintenance. I keep to myself and love company and companionship. Back in my day I use to run in circles all day with my friends. Now a days I get excited when the mail man brings me my Costco coupons. I've lived an amazing life and would love to send this next chapter with YOU! If you'd like to meet me or know more please call my friends at Better Together Animal Alliance 208-265-7297 ext 100

😻😻😻 MEET MAX! 😻😻😻
Hi my name is Max. It may be hard to believe but I'm actually a 15 year young kitty. I know I look good for my age but I most definitely am a senior. Back in my day I spent my time working 9-5 as a mouser for a shop. Now a days I'm retired and looking for my forever home. I love spending my time laying on the couch and watching The Golden Girls marathons on the Hallmark channel. I Love The Golden Girls especially Sophia because she is such a hoot! As my spirit person Sophia would say " Picture it, Sicily 1922 I am a cat on your lap and you adopted me" tee hee did I peak your interest??? To sweeten the deal I am also liter box trained and a very affectionate girl. If you would like to know more please contact my friends at Better Together Animal Alliance 208-265-7297 ext 100

💖🐕MEET MAJOR!🐕💖

Hiya my name is Major! I'm a 9 year young good boy who is also a MAJOR CUTIE! See what I did there? hehehe. After many years serving the Paw Patrol I have finally retired and ready for the next chapter in my life. Currently I'm obsessed with sitting on my porch and watching the squirrels and this neat show called Unsolved Mysteries. I'm great with older kids and joined a book club recently where everyone was ready this book called Harry Potter. Its truly fascinating. Granted I have no clue what they are talking about when they read the book but I don't mind. I just love the company. I get along with cats and I'm selective with other pups. I am also crate trained and Potty trained. If you'd like to meet me feel free to contact my friends at Better Together Animal Alliance 208-265-7297 ext 100

Please let me know what your policy on cats/kittens is. I have a wild female that had 4 adorable wild babies. One is solid black, one is black with white feet & a white spot on it chest, one is a calico & one is a tortoiseshell colored. They are just starting to eat cat food - I can't get close to them at all. I absolutely can't keep these cats. I already have two fixed female cats & a dog
Has anyone seen this pretty girl? She belongs to a client/friend and was in a roll over accident near Clark Fork and took off from the scene. She is 9 yrs old, her name is Missy. She is dearly loved and missed. She is shy. If you see her
Bath day! Playing fetch indoors until dry. It's hard work, but Max and Oreo are up to the task! Adopting this duo was one of the best decisions in my life! #doublethetrouble #doublethefun #loveatfirstsight
STILL LOOKING FOR MISSING HEELER. Someone called Saturday, to tell us they had seen our dog near Northwoods Veterinary clinic in Athol last Thursday. Unfortunately they weren’t able to stop, but if you live in the subdivision behind Northwoods Vet Clinic please spread the word and call if you have any information. The vet clinic said it was definitely her. Female Red/blue heeler, last seen wearing pink harness with tags, answers to Calamity. Will probably be skittish. Call us; we live in the Athol area, we will immediately come with her special person. If you know anybody in the north Clagstone area or Homestead Road area, please spread the word and the post on your social media. Thank you for your support!💓 208-818-5054 or 208-597-4014
Is the shelter currently taking in cats?

Do you do microchipping?
Hello i have A black Lionhead bunny she’s probably only about six months old I’m not exactly sure I got her from the pet store in Priest river and she just doesn’t seem to be happy at my house could be because of all the other animals I don’t really know but I wanted to try and rehome her if possible and if someone would love to have her she’s adorable but she needs a lot of time and energy put into her if you would like to adopt her please reply to this post
We adopted Cheeto 3 weeks ago. We just wanted you to know that he seems pretty happy with us. :)
I was so impressed with your shelter!! You all do a great job, and I am so blessed to have Oreo and Max join my family. We had a fabulous evening and I woke up to these two cuddle muffins both right next to me, happy and sleeping soundly! My birthday is coming up on 9-1-1 and I never do the Facebook fundraiser until yesterday. You touched my heart with your love of animals and your outstanding people skills. So far $50 has been raised and I hope lots more will come to you! God bless you! https://www.facebook.com/donate/1692346127601331/1692346164267994/
Just found these two running on the highway near Trestle Creek Recreation Area. Do they look familiar?
Found on Rapid lightning road Monday afternoon she was wearing a purple collar. She's at my house please message me.
