Kootenai Pets for Life was started in 2001 by a group of concerned citizens to provide a humane, no kill shelter for the stray and abandoned pet population of the Libby/Troy area. It is a non-profit, all volunteer organization providing shelter, assisting our community with spay and neuter, foster care, veterinary assistance and education.
KPFL has adopted out over 3,500 pets and facilitated the spaying or neutering of almost 8,000 pets. Microchipping was started in 2012 and every pet leaving the shelter is microchipped for easy identification. The spay or neuter of feral cats was started in July 0f 2011 and almost 750 feral cats have been spayed or neutered.
