Holiday Pets 2023

The Pocatello Animal Shelter is delighted to announce a special sponsorship for dog adoptions, generously funded by an anonymous donor. Effective immediately, adoption fees for all dogs in search of loving homes will be sponsored by an anonymous donor until the end of the year or until funds are exhausted.

"We are incredibly grateful for the kindness of our anonymous donor, whose generosity will undoubtedly make a significant impact on the lives of our shelter dogs," said Sarah Moore, Administrative Assistant at the Pocatello Animal Shelter

The anonymous benefactor’s commitment to the welfare of animals in our community will make the dream of a forever home a reality for many dogs at the Pocatello Animal Shelter. If you are looking to adopt, feel free to stop by the shelter, located at 3100 Avenue of the Chiefs in Pocatello. Who knows, you might find the perfect pet waiting for you.
