If you’re a cat or kitten lover come to the Pocatello Animal Shelter. We have cats of all different sizes and colors. We have a purrfect deal going on, cats are $25 and kittens are $35.

04/23/2019

We’d like to clarify some concerns raised on social media today about Pocatello Animal Services.

First and foremost, the well-being of animals at the animal shelter will always be the staff’s number one priority. In order to take care of our four-legged friends, we have shuffled duties and temporarily suspended non-essential duties. Again, the welfare of the animals is our top priority.

Pocatello Animal Services is currently utilizing and will continue to utilize the services of volunteers. We have 45 active volunteers who are trained and helping us. At this time, however, employees are unable to screen new volunteers and provide the required volunteer training. The department will begin accepting new volunteers to the program in early June and welcome all those who are interested to apply.

Pocatello Animal Services does not post photos of stray animals. Staff closely monitor the Bannock County Pet Lost and Found page and when a pet matches a description or photo posted there, staff reach out to let the owner know the pet may be at the shelter. Additionally, when a pet is reported missing to Pocatello Animal Services by phone, email, social media, etc., staff ask that all pet parents come to the shelter to visually look at the animals and see if their missing pet is at the facility.

When an animal is either turned over to Animal Services or has not been claimed, adoptable animals may be listed at https://www.petfinder.com/search/pets-for-adoption/?shelter_id%5B0%5D=ID49&sort%5B0%5D=recently_added. As mentioned above, due to temporary duty changes, posting on social media has not been as frequent recently. Once staffing levels return to normal, our social media posts will become more regular.

Our foster program is now officially up and running! The links to apply are down below on the original post so if you would like to help out at the shelter apply now!!

“The program aims to find short-term homes for animals that require extra attention,” said Shaila McGuire, Volunteer Coordinator. “These are dogs and cats that may be pregnant or nursing litters and fur babies who have a medical condition that requires more hands-on care.”

Animal Services will provide vaccinations, food, litter if needed, and toys. Pocatello Animal Services is currently in need of donations of cat litter boxes and cat toys for the program.

Residents must apply to be a foster home. The application to be a foster home for dogs can be found at pocatello.seamlessdocs.com/f/ASdogfoster. Meanwhile, the application to foster cats is available at pocatello.seamlessdocs.com/f/AScatfoster. Paper applications can also be picked up at the Pocatello Animal Shelter, 3100 Avenue of the Chiefs, during business hours.
