The foster program at Pocatello Animal Services seeks to find short-term homes for dogs and cats who require extra attention. These animals may be pregnant or nursing litters that have a medical condition requiring more hands-on care. Animal Services provides the vaccinations, food, litter (if needed), and toys.

Residents must apply to be a foster home. Applications may be picked up at the Pocatello Animal Shelter or accessed below.


Residents with questions about the application or the foster program can contact Shaila McGuire at 208-234-6156 or via email at
