POCATELLO — The Pocatello Animal Shelter has announced a special sponsorship for dog adoptions. A generous donation is allowing the shelter to waive adoption fees, the shelter announced in a news release.
“Effective immediately, adoption fees for all dogs in search of loving homes will be sponsored by an anonymous donor until the end of the year or until funds are exhausted,” shelter officials said in a news release.
“We are incredibly grateful for the kindness of our anonymous donor, whose generosity will undoubtedly make a significant impact on the lives of our shelter dogs,” Sarah Moore, administrative assistant at the Pocatello Animal Shelter said in the release.
