WELCOME to POCATELLO ANIMAL SERVICES

Katie's Dog Park

Our Dog Park is Now Open!

This half-acre park features two separate play areas with one meant for large, active, and energetic dogs and another for smaller dogs or those that are a little more leisurely in their play. Other amenities include two water fountains, benches, a shade pergola, and most importantly, the entire park is fenced in so dogs are free to run off leash!

Volunteer Program

Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections once a year. But when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in." - unknown

The Pocatello Shelter has a Volunteer Program that may fit your needs and we're looking for your help! Your help will ensure our animals receive more interaction with humans as well as maintain and improve the social skills the animal come to us with. Your time will definitely make a difference for that one animal that you spend time with.

There are many ways to help out, including: working with the dogs on the property, working with the cats in the adoptable cat room, bathing/minor grooming of the animals, cleaning kennels, helping out in the office, greeting and guiding those who come to the shelter, helping with fundraisers and outreach events, as well as, working on projects from your home.

If you are 18 years or older and would like more information about volunteering please contact the Pocatello Animal Shelter to learn more.

Our next Volunteer Orientation will be Saturday, May 21st at 3:30pm and will last approx. 1 1/2 hours
