Fees for animal adoptions being waived Saturday as part of Pocatello event
The following is a news release from the city of Pocatello.
POCATELLO — If you are looking to add a furry member to the family, today it will be easier on your wallet.
From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Phil Meador Subaru, 1437 Yellowstone Avenue, Pocatello Animal Services, American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), and the dealership will join forces to offer fee-waived adoptions of animals. The adoptions are made possible by a grant from the ASPCA.
“We have animals for every type of personality,” said Rhett Nicks, Animal Services Director. “Whether you are a runner who takes to the City Creek Trails or someone who likes to spend the day cuddled up at home enjoying a good movie, we have a dog, cat, or even a bunny that would be the perfect fit for you and your family.”
Included in an adoption are age appropriate 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.
“Thank you to the ASPCA and Phil Meador Subaru,” Nicks said. “Because of their generosity, Saturday will be life-changing for so many animals.”
