TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Campaigns

Movers for Mutts®

This year, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Boise is partnering with Treasure Valley Subaru, Zamzow's, and other local businesses to benefit The Idaho Humane Society.  These locations and other local businesses will serve as drop off points for collection of essential pet items. The collection drive begins September 5 - October 7. The community can also drop off items at the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Boise booth at See Spot Walk at Julia Davis Park on October 7. 

Pets are considered an important part of any family, but this fall, many pets living in animal shelters could use the community’s support in securing adequate amounts of food, toys, and everyday living essentials for pets in need of their forever home. The Idaho Humane Society is a leader in the national animal welfare arena and significantly supports underserved communities and rescues in Idaho and beyond by transferring animals to prevent unnecessary euthanasia for a second chance at life.  

Idaho Humane Society Logo

The Idaho Humane Society is the oldest and largest animal welfare organization in the state. They are an independent 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization unaffiliated with and unfunded by the Humane Society of the United States. They follow the tenants of Socially Responsible Sheltering and have some of the highest shelter-save rates for animals in the country. Their mission is to advocate for the welfare and responsible care of animals, protect them from neglect and cruelty, and promote humane education, awareness, and compassion for all living things. The Idaho Humane Society works to reunite dogs with their owners, offers low-cost medical care (including spay and neuter surgeries to curb overpopulation), offers behavior training, foster care for special-needs animals, camps, and classes for youth, and of course, second chances to pets through adoption.  

The Idaho Humane Society Pet Food Pantry and Meals on Wheels for Pets programs are experiencing unprecedented demand. Treasure Valley households are encountering economic hardships like increased housing and food costs, and families are faced with heartbreaking options for feeding and maintaining their pet’s health and happiness. As a result, there has been an increase in surrendered pets at the Idaho Humane Society due to financial stressors. Pet owners report lower stress levels and better cardiovascular health, and many low-income or homebound individuals say their pet is their most powerful relationship.  

“The Idaho Humane Society is honored to work with our partners, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, Treasure Valley Subaru, and Zamzows in support of the pets in our community. We depend on the generosity of companies like them to help provide safety, food, veterinary care, and love to animals in need. Let's “Fill-The-Truck" at See Spot Walk to feed and care for the animals at the Idaho Humane Society through this coming winter months.  --Leah Stephens Clark, Director of Development and Stewardship at the Idaho Humane Society 

Treasure Valley Subaru logo

“Treasure Valley Subaru's enduring commitment to assisting the Idaho Humane Society stems from a profound understanding of the critical needs of animals in our society. Their unwavering support goes beyond financial contributions as they actively engage in adoption events, fundraisers, and awareness campaigns to address the urgent issues faced by countless innocent animals. From rescuing animals from dire situations to providing medical attention and nurturing care, the Idaho Humane Society, backed by Treasure Valley Subaru, offers a lifeline of hope to vulnerable creatures, granting them a second chance at life and love. Recognizing the pressing issue of animals seeking loving forever homes, Treasure Valley Subaru partners with the Society to promote adoption events that unite compassionate individuals with animals yearning for a place to call their own, fostering a brighter future. Their invaluable fundraising efforts empower the Society to sustain its vital mission, providing essential resources like food, shelter, and medical care, and raising awareness about responsible pet ownership. Embracing the interconnectedness of our world, where the welfare of animals influences the fabric of society, Treasure Valley Subaru takes on the responsibility to protect and cherish all living beings, fostering a more compassionate and empathetic world where the needs of animals are met with love, care, and respect, envisioning a future where every animal receives the chance to experience the warmth of a loving home and the joy of a life filled with kindness.” Rob Studebaker – General Manager Treasure Valley Subaru 

Zamzows logo

“At Zamzows, we believe that our responsibility to the community goes beyond just being a business. Our partnership with the Humane Society is a heartfelt expression of our dedication to making a positive impact in the lives of animals in Idaho. I am truly inspired by the efforts we have undertaken to support this wonderful cause. Through Movers for Mutts, they are not only providing physical help in transporting supplies for these animals, but also delivering hope and a chance at a better life. It's a privilege to have strong partnerships with local companies that embrace compassion and actively work to create a brighter future for our furry friends." - Callie Zamzow, Co-CEO of Zamzows 

“ Here at Zamzows, we believe that compassion extends beyond the aisles of our stores. Our partnership with the Humane Society is a testament to our unwavering commitment to the well-being of every living creature in Idaho.  I am incredibly proud of the partnerships we have with the Humane Society and all the efforts put forth in providing food, shelter, and most importantly, loving forever homes for animals in need. Together, we are creating a brighter future for these innocent animals, one paw at a time." - -Jos Zamzow, Co-CEO of Zamzows

Society of St. Vincent de Paul

St. Vincent de Paul Southwest Idaho is made up of nearly 700 volunteers and a few staff members to directly help tens of thousands of our friends and neighbors throughout Southwestern Idaho. Their work here is built around the core value of the Society; the home visit.

When someone calls one of the helpline numbers throughout Southwest Idaho, they are accessing a system that has been in place since 1833 when our founders started going to the places where the poor lived to meet them, listen to their needs and offer understanding and the physical support available. In addition to the helpline, St. Vincent de Paul Southwest Idaho operates seven thrift stores, five food panties, a dining hall, a prescription assistance program and seasonal programs as well.

We are currently donating a storage container while they under go a renovation and are happy to help them with any logistical and transport needs.
