The Shelter would like to give a huge shout out to Junior Girl Scout Troop 185 for their hard work and donations! We would like to recognize - Elizabeth Wardle, Holli Haumschilt, Téa Hoffer, and Abby Lusk. " The Junior Girl Scouts in Troop 185, focused their Bronze Award project on Pet Health and Happiness. They made dog and cat toys and tie dyed bandannas which they put into adoption bags with donated treats and canned food to be given out when a dog or cat is adopted from the Animal Shelter. The Juniors love animals and wanted to give back to the community at the same time. They worked over the summer to get everything made and put together to donate". Thank you so much!

Wishing everyone a Happy New Year! The shelter will be closed 1/1/20 and will return to normal business hours on 1/2/20!

We would like to thank Jarett B. with Eagle Scout #353 for his generous donation! He went around to the community and his school gathering donations for the Shelter. He created adoption kits for both dogs and cats which included a blanket, toy, treats, leash and collar. Jarett also brought us many other donations, such as food, treats, toys, potty pads, etc. Because of this young man's hard work and kind heart, our Shelter animals went to their new forever homes with a kit of enrichments.

Update: ADOPTED!!!
Our sweet girl Gracie (Animal ID#8544) has been in and out of our shelter since 2016 and is looking for her true forever home. Gracie is an incredible dog. She is so mellow, loving, and gentle. Gracie would do AMAZING with a family that needs a relaxed dog. One that will take her for walks, give her loves, and show her that she deserves a true forever home. Because Gracie is 8 years old she is at a discounted price of $84.80 with tax. (3% fee may apply if using a card to pay for her adoption.) Come give Gracie her forever home.

Hi all! We have some exciting news regarding our sweet girl, Janet. A good Samaritan has donated $60.00 towards her adoption so sweet Janet is only $77.80 with tax! She is officially our longest standing resident and really needs to find a home where she can be her amazing energetic self. If you are interested please send us a message!

Janet (Animal ID#27434) is one of our longest standing residents. At 11 months old, this sweet girl has been looking for a home since early September. Janet is very active and still has a ton of puppy energy. She needs to find a home that does lots of hiking, walking, and other fun activities. Janet does well with other dogs, but she came to us as a stray so sadly we do not know much about her background. If you are looking for a life long companion Janet is your girl, and she's waiting for you.

We have a very special price for our Dizi girl. Dizi (Animal ID#24898) has been with us since August and NEEDS to find a good home! A good Samaritan has paid her entire adoption fee, so she is FREE! However, Dizi does have some requirements. Dizi needs a home that will be attentive and give her lots of exercise. When Dizi is left alone outside she will climb fences and can climb up to an 8 foot fence, so she needs a home that will pay attention to her and give her lots of love! Dizi is great with kids, other dogs, and kitties but we ask that if you have other dogs or children that you come and have them meet her before taking her home! We can't wait for you to come in and give our sweet angel her forever home.

Hello! My name is angie kremin... my sister and I were in about 2 weeks ago and took home 3 beautiful little kittens... they are doing great!!!

This video is a true testament of what crazy cat ladies do for entertainment! 🤣🤣 PLEASE MUTE THE VOLUME !!! MY SISTER AND I CUSS LIKE SAILERS... COULD BE OFFENSIVE- YOUVE BEEN WARNED😁😁 thank you so much for all you do!! You filled an hole in my heart and I can never thank you enough! 💖💓😻😻
Please watch for her. Adopted through the shelter.
The FREE adoption for the cats sounds like it was a great success...but there have been reports that people are jumping on free adoptions for cats just to feed them to their snakes...how do we know that that is not the case.....were all the people vetted to know that they are caring people or just taking advantage of it.....almost makes me sick to think about this...
Can you tell us why you do not do more posting of the animals you have for adoption? Seams like that would be a great way to get adoption up?
Please do more posting of the animals you have for adoption.
https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2185270881771436&id=100008656362487I wanna add, yesterday(monday) they said she was being investigated so, we couldn't take her home. That they had to talk to an officer to release her. That they would call me today. When i called today, they said she had been adopted. On Saturday......... when asked 3 times what she was being investigated for, I got evasive answersss....... what changed? Today she was adopted.....
Good people doing good for our community and animals
8 years ago today I went to the Pocatello Animal Shelter to just “look” at the dogs and ended up crossing paths with this handsome, curly tailed, goofball. We have had many adventures over the years, and while he’s starting to grey a little, Kyran hasn’t slowed down a bit. We still go for, hikes, swims, walks, and he’s the best running bud I could ever ask for! I love this handsome guy so much and I’m eternally grateful we found one another that day at the pound. Happy 8th gotcha day, Kyran, and here’s to many more! Of course l, we would like to give a special thank you to the folks at the Pocatello Animal Shelter for all they do on a daily basis. All the memories, all the adventures, and all the love Kyran and I get to share is because they make it possible for us and so many other families. We are forever in their debt! #gotchaday #bordercolliemix #muttsofinstagram #shelterdog #shelterdogsofinstagram #derpydog #adopteddog #thankyouPocatelloAnimalServices
Looking for this baby boy, extra toes. Long haired very friendly. Lives on connor street in old town, got out on the 13th, hasn't been home since. Help my friend find her baby. Her little girl is so sad without her kitty. Any info plz contact me 2087053829
Anybody know who this momma kitty belongs to? On Harrison in old town. I live right behind main street and would hate to see her hit. Help please!
Our Jack Russell got out of the yard yesterday, 8/3, and we've been unable to locate him. I will be in touch with the shelter first thing in the morning but am also hoping that if someone has found him they can reach out to me as soon as possible so I can pick him up. He has his tags on which include both mine and my husband's phone numbers. He's terribly missed and worried about. In the Canyon/Fremont area.
Hello, We found this sweet girl running loose near our house on West Gibson Jack near the Gibson Jack trail head parking lot. No collar and taken to the vet no chip either. Trying to find an owner if there is one.
