IDAHO FALLS — The Snake River Animal Shelter has received a $25,000 grant that will help in the care of dogs and cats.

The ASPCA provided the money and it will be used to support the installation of outdoor kennels for dogs and indoor kennels for cats as well as barriers for the indoor dog kennels.

The new equipment will be installed at the Blackfoot Animal Shelter, which was privatized in October 2017. The Snake River Animal Shelter is now in charge of the facility and it has been awarded $39,000 in grant money since taking over.

“We are seeing the number of adoptions double at that facility and cat lives saved has increased by 40%,” said Kristin Sanger, Executive Director of the Snake River Animal Shelter.
