[ARCHIVED] Pocatello Animal Services Seeks Homes for Kitten Foster Program

Cat at Pocatello Animal Shelter

The Pocatello Animal Services is looking to grow its foster program to provide short-term homes for our animals while they need extra care.  Springtime keeps us busy with kittens and our fosters help provide care for animals that are pregnant, nursing, bottle-fed, and other reasons causing them to need more hands-on care.  Animal Services provides vaccinations, food, litter (if needed), and toys. 

In 2021, the animal shelter took in around 450 kittens and 590 adult cats. Female cats can get pregnant starting at about 4 months old. They are pregnant for approximately 60 days, then can become pregnant again about 4 weeks after giving birth.  This cycle happens quickly and can cause a large population of cats.

More information, and the application to become a foster, can be found HERE

For more information on Pocatello Animal Services or to view adoptable pets, click HERE and like the department’s Facebook page.

If you have any questions, you can contact the shelter at 208-234-6156 or at pokypets@pocatello.gov.
