Public presentations by employees can be scheduled and written information on animal issues is available by contacting the shelter office.



2014 FOOD CHALLENGE
RESULTS

 

The Pocatello Animal Services staff, volunteers and especially the animals (boy were they excited!) want to thank Phil Meador Toyota, Courtesy Ford and Subaru for the 2014 Food Challenge. All three dealerships did an amazing job at collecting food for the shelter and the Bannock Humane Society. We received a total of 2,282.35 lbs of dog and cat food. That’s a lot of kibble! And this total doesn’t include the amounts brought in to the shelter by our supporters or all the treats and toys donated during the drive.

 

We want to specially thank all of our friends and supporters who took the time to bring in food. (and for you who helped pick it up!) Not only are you helping to make the stay a little better at the shelter, your generosity is helping the community animals at the Bannock Humane Society Food Bank.

 

We are very blessed at the shelter to have so many great supporters for our work. Thanks for being a part of it.
