Join Pocatello Animal Services for a holiday pet food drive. From November 21 through December 27, Pocatello Animal Services is collecting wet or dry dog food and cat food, pet treats, litter, toys, and other pet supplies. All donations collected will go to help feed hungry pets in our community.

“Our department is dedicated to helping not just the animals housed at the shelter but animals and citizens of our community,” said Chris Abbot, Animal Services Director. “Our staff and volunteers are here to help, and with your donations, we are able to continue assisting others this holiday season and throughout the year.”
