We have a ton of cats that need wonderful homes. These particular cats came from a very unfortunate situation. They all are cat friendly, 3 of them are seniors, and the two females need special diets. Aunt Gummie and Cattatude have no teeth at all and can only eat wet food. The males have no dietary restrictions. If you have the room in your life to provide a home where these sweet babies can live out their golden years, please come up to the shelter to meet them.

Happy Rescuing Y'all!

Working side by side with a dog is the most rewarding job in the world, and the most heartbreaking when it's time for them to leave. We will see you again on the Rainbow Bridge, Dex.

Our condolences to the Pocatello Police Department, Corporal Peterson, and all who knew and loved Dex.

Good morning all! We still have 3 long term residence here at the shelter that need a home. All three are sweet, loving boys, who are starting to think that their perfect family just isn’t out there. We have promised them that they are and they just are having a hard time finding us. Help us make these boys’ dreams come true.

Mozzie has been here since the 24th of July. We honestly don’t understand why. He is currently the favorite of most of our staff. He is loving and playful, loves treats. He is good with other dogs! He just takes a minute to learn to trust (treat bribery works very, very well) and once you earn his trust, he is the best companion ever.

Dutch has been here since the 13th of July. Dutch loves people! He wants to be with people and follow them around everywhere. He is really frustrated in his kennel, so a lot of people pass him by and deem him aggressive, which is just not the case. He is good with kids, good on leash, very affectionate. He’s a great boy, but he doesn’t like other dogs, so he would have to be in a single pet home. We have tried to get Dutch into rescue, but unfortunately because he is not dog friendly and sometimes due to his breed, rescues cannot take him in.

Bolt was originally brought to the shelter on 6/29, he was adopted for about a week in August and brought back to us (no fault of his own!). He is active and silly. He loves people and other dogs. He’s an all-around good boy. He is having a hard time as well being in the shelter for so long. The silly, fun loving pup we know is starting to become sad.

All of these pups do have discounted adoption fees. We desperately want to find them homes. Please help us by sharing this post!

Thank you all and Happy Rescuing!!

Please call us with any inquiries or come to the shelter to meet her!

More pictures of Mozzie at an event last night! How could you not fall in love with this amazing boy?!?!

Meet Mozzie!! Mozzie is a 1-year old Lab/Rottweiler mix. He is a shy guy. He does love people, but needs an introduction where he can approach you. If you allow him that kind of introduction, be prepared for the biggest, most loving pup in the entire world. He listens to basic commands, loves walks, and snacks. He is good with dogs and with kids over 10 years of age. He doesn’t like cats.

Mozzie needs a home. He is a shelter favorite and has a huge heart with so much love to give. He just needs a family who can be patient with him as he warms up and comes out of his shell! He is already neutered and can go home right after adoption! If you are interested in meeting Mozzie, please come to the shelter. You can also call us if you have any questions. Thank you all and Happy Rescuing!!

My beautiful boy is missing from the Twin Falls Falls area in Kimberly, Idaho since May 19th. He has tags with all my contact information on his light purple collar. He is micro-chipped! He is 16 months old and has not been neutered and he has no tail. I am heartbroken and worried for his safety. I am offering a reward for his return. Please call 208-410-2697 if you have seen my fur baby.

I have lost my dog. He was at home last I saw him on Wednesday afternoon, April 21, 2021. He stays in the yard with my other two dogs. My home is in Rigby at 3264 E 200 N. His name is Atticus but I call him Atti. He is sweet and friendly! Please if you see him contact me immediately! My number is 2083901291 call or text is fine. He has a leather collar on but no tags as he ripped them off. I cannot remember if he is chipped or not. Please if you have him or know someone who does return him back please! If you see him for sale somewhere I DID NOT sell him or give permission for him to be sold. I have notified my local law enforcement and all shelters in Idaho. I am working on notifying all the vets as I put flyers up. Atticus is my savior and my baby. I just want him back and he is my emotional support dog please please return him! There is a reward of $50, for his SAFE return!
