Things to Consider Before Adopting
  • Spaying and neutering is now required for all animals adopted from the shelter. This may slow down the adoption process. Please ask at the front desk for more details or call.
  • The shelter offers a two-week trial period. 
  • The shelter is a great place to find almost any size, color, age and breed of cats or dogs and sometimes other small animals, too! 
  • Remember, this is a life-time family commitment. Include your whole family when deciding on what pet you want to adopt.
  • The Pocatello Animal Shelter reserves the right to refuse any adoption.
