Pocatello Animal Services seeks homes for Kitten Foster Program

The following is a news release from the city of Pocatello.
POCATELLO — Kitten season is upon us and Pocatello Animal Services is looking for foster care providers.
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 four months old. They are pregnant for approximately 60 days, then can become pregnant again about four 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 care provider, can be found here.
