Pocatello Animal Services Celebrates National Adopt-a-Cat Month

Pocatello Animal Services

If you’re thinking of adding a furry friend to the family, June is probably the perfect time according to your wallet. During National Adopt-a-Cat month, Pocatello Animal Services is offering cat adoptions for $35 thanks to help from The Friends of the Pocatello Animal Shelter. The group is helping to bring down the cost by picking up the remainder of the tab which is typically $90. The price of adoption includes vaccinations, licensing, collar, spay or neuter surgery, and a microchip for permanent identification. “Kitten season usually hits its high point in June and there are cats of seemingly every color, temperament, and breed at the shelter right now,” said Richard Stewart, Animal Services Director. “We’d like to invite everyone to come take a look and see if one special feline could be a fit for you and your family.” Also joining the celebration, Mayor Brian Blad will be issuing a proclamation at the June 2 City Council meeting declaring June to be Adopt-a-Cat month in Pocatello and urging residents “to consider adopting a homeless cat or finding another way to help.” The proclamation is scheduled to be read by Councilman Jim Johnston.
