Pocatello Animal Services Builds New “Kitten Bowl” Thanks to ASPCA Grant

Pocatello Animal Services

Cats making a temporary stop at the Pocatello Animal Shelter will now have a new place to play thanks to a grant from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA). Last year, the shelter received a $40,000 grant from the ASPCA and last week the new kitten enclosure was finished. The “kitten bowl” is a multi-level enclosure with floor to ceiling windows for easy viewing by the public. The fun environment also has an entrance to allow the public to step into the bowl, with assistance from staff, and interact with any of the cats that are inside. “When they’re in the bowl, cats allow their playful and fun side to show through,” said Richard Stewart, Animals Services Director. “Their individual personalities are on display and when that happens, you tend to see more adoptions. We’re thankful for the generosity of the ASPCA and their willingness to help improve the lives of an untold number of animals.” The new bowl joins another that was built when the shelter was constructed.
