Pocatello Animal Services Auctions Off “1B 1” License Plate


The number one license plate in Bannock County is up for bid.

Thanks to a donation by the Barber family, the plate reading “1B 1” is being auctioned off by Pocatello Animal Services. According to the family, the license plate had been in the possession of Joe Barber since the 1960s.

“This truly is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to not only purchase a piece of Idaho history but also help enrich the lives of homeless pets,” said Rhett Nicks, Animal Services Director. “We’d like to thank the Barbers for their gift and generosity as well as Phil Meador Subaru for hosting the silent auction.”

Recently, Joe passed away and his son gave the plate to Pocatello Animal Services.

A silent auction for the unique placard will begin Friday, December 8 at Phil Meador Subaru, 1437 Yellowstone Avenue. Bids will be accepted until December 22.

Proceeds from the auction will go towards enrichment programs for homeless pets at the Pocatello Animal Shelter.
