Jeff Crosby to Help Celebrate Mountain Humane’s Golden Anniversary
Monday, September 12, 2022


Mountain Humane is throwing a 50th anniversary celebration featuring The Jeff Crosby Band on Friday, Sept. 23. The concert will be held from 7 to 10 p.m. at the animal welfare campus in Croy Canyon near Hailey.

Tickets are $25 per person and available at

Commemorative T-shirts will be available, as will food and beverages for purchase from K.B’s Burritos and Sawtooth Brewery. Gates open at 6 p.m., and attendees are welcome to bring low-back chairs, blankets and coolers.

Born and raised in Idaho, Jeff Crosby plays his brand of Americana music on about 200 gigs annually throughout the United States and Europe.

He came to the world’s attention when two of his songs—“This Old Town” and “Oh Love, Oh Lord”—found their way onto the FX series “Sons of Anarchy.” He has performed for Widespread Panic songwriter Jerry Joseph and Idaho natives Reckless Kelly. And he’s written songs featured on Micky & The Motorcars’ recent release “Long Time Comin’ ” and Reckless Kelly’s “American Girls/American Jackpot.”

The concert is part of a series of pet-loving events over the weekend of Sept. 23-25 that Mountain Humane has dubbed “Treat-Play-Love.” The event is sponsored by Bigwood Bread.

  • On Saturday, Sept. 24, the shelter will host two Pet Parades in which dog and cat owners are invited to dress up their pets and take part in a parade and costume contests. The first will be held from 11 a.m. to noon at Roberta McKercher Park in Hailey.

    The second will be held from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. at Ketchum Town Square. Each participant receives a commemorative bandana and prizes will be awarded to costume winners.

  • On Sunday, Sept. 25, dog owners are invited to bring their pooches for a group hike at one of three trailheads: Adam’s Gulch, Greenhorn or Draper Preserve. There will be options for varied abilities. Groups should gather at 10:30 a.m.

The event is sponsored by Baldy Biscuit, which is providing treats for two-legged and four-legged friends during the weekend events, along with Jersey Girl and Big Belly Deli.

"Mountain Humane is hosting these events to thank our generous community for their continued support that makes our life-saving work possible," says Annie McCauley, Mountain Humane executive director.


"We live in a very pet-loving community,” added Sally Onetto, Mountain Humane board president. "The tremendous support for Mountain Humane over the years and commitment from our staff and volunteers enables us to give animals the chance to live their best lives."

Mountain Humane cared for 2,707 animals in 2021. The shelter provided 2,800 vaccinations, performed 1,024 spay or neuter surgeries, completed 100 dental procedures and microchipped 512 animals.

Founded in 1972, it originally served as a traditional dog pound, providing for homeless dogs and cats. But it has since expanded to follow the protocols of Contemporary Animal Shelter with programs designed to keep pets with their families. It provides low-cost veterinary services in these cases, along with a pet food bank, behavior training and support, short-term boarding for families in transition and low and found assistance.
