Helping Furry Family Members Find Homes by Supporting the Kootenai Humane Society

Architerra recently presented the Kootenai Humane Society with a check for $33,000. A portion of every home sold in 2022 was earmarked for this wonderful cause to make this donation possible. The Kootenai Humane Society provides critical services to the Coeur d’Alene area, and the team at Architerra loves supporting this local charity that has such a big impact on the region.

The Architerra team loves animals, and we know that pets are a huge part of a family and home. Whether it’s the warm devotion of your dog begging for treats as you enjoy an evening at home in the living room or the ever-present family cat surveying a messy dinner scene plotting how to snatch a bite of chicken, pets bring something special to a family. Home is Where Life Happens and our furry family members are a huge part of that.

In addition to the proceeds from home sales, John J. Hemmingson, founder of Lakeside Companies and owner of Architerra, has also donated $250,000 to the Kootenai Humane Society. John is also a dog lover, whose own adorable pooch – Hailey Hemmingson – was adopted in Hailey, ID. You can read more about Architerra’s ongoing partnership with the Kootenai Humane Society here.

KHS is currently in the middle of a capital campaign to fund the nearly complete construction of their new facility. This facility expands the capacity for KHS, a no kill shelter, and will provide more space for veterinary, critical care, and other key services.
