(City of Pocatello Press Release, March 30, 2023)

Add a new dog or puppy to your family by giving him or her a fur-ever home, thanks to Friends of the Pocatello Animal Shelter (Friends). Currently, the Pocatello Animal Shelter has 26 dogs and 14 puppies available for adoption.

Starting Friday, March 31, and continuing through Saturday, April 8, Friends will cover 50 percent of the adoption cost for dogs and puppies from the City of Pocatello’s animal shelter. Additional discount programs are also available, and Pocatello Animal Services staff will help potential pet parents find the right discount option.

These adoptions are being sponsored by Friends to help with the abundance of dogs on the adoption floor.



Dog and puppy adoptions regularly cost $130+tax and are now $65+tax with the discount. All adoptions include vaccinations, a collar, spay or neuter surgery, and a microchip for permanent identification.

Friends of the Pocatello Animal Shelter is a 501(c)(3) organization. To learn more about the nonprofit group, visit pocatelloshelterfriends.org.
