The mission of Better Together Animal Alliance is to create and support meaningful connections by enhancing the lives of dogs, cats, and the people in our community who love them.  

Better Together Animal Alliance is located in Ponderay, Idaho and serves Bonner, Boundary, and Kootenai Counties. Its primary goal is to keep people and pets together. This is achieved by supporting pet owners using best practice programs and by supporting both sides of the human-animal bond in a friendly and non-judgmental way. Better Together Animal Alliance's owner support programs help pet owners take care of their pets, preventing the need to surrender them to our animal care facility. Programs include a pet food bank, a helpline, Pets for Life, Home To Home, Temporary Loving Care, and Trap-Neuter-Return services for community cats.  Of the thousands of animals served annually, only a small portion of them ever enter the animal care facility as a result of our supportive community-based programs.

When an animal needs a safe place to stay until they find a new home, they are cared for at the animal care facility where cats live in a stimulating and spacious cat haven and dogs enjoy the benefits of being out of their kennels walking or playing several times a day.  

Better Together Animal Alliance is also the founder of Home To Home, an online pet rehoming tool that helps pets go from one home to another without entering an animal shelter. The program is used in 130 communities nationwide, and assists over 46,000 animals each year. You can learn more about Home To Home by visiting
