Thanks to a $2,500 grant some of Pocatello’s homeless animals will now be heading to their forever home for the holidays.
Saturday, December 10 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Phil Meador Subaru, 1437 Yellowstone Avenue, Pocatello Animal Services and the dealership will join forces to offer free adoptions of animals from the Pocatello Animal Shelter. Funded by a $2,500 grant from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) through Subaru’s “Share the Love” program, the money will fully cover the adoption fee for cats and dogs at the event until a total $2,500 is reached. If the total is crossed before the event is over, “The Friends of the Pocatello Animal Shelter” will help by offering reduced prices of $35 for cats and $70 for dogs.
“It’s a big commitment but I can’t think of a better gift to give than a loving home to an animal,” said Richard Stewart, Animal Services Director. “I’d like to thank the ASPCA, Phil Meador Subaru, and the ‘Friends’ for their generosity in helping to see these animals go home during the most wonderful time of the year.”
Included in an adoption are vaccinations, microchip implant, City license, collar, and more. The adoption process takes between 15 and 30 minutes. During the adoption, potential pet owners are screened by shelter staff to help ensure the animal will be a good fit in the new home and the necessary paperwork is filled out.
