Every Little Bit Helps
Portneuf Animal Welfare Society responds to dozens of requests for animals in distress each month.
Conducting large and small animal rescues, underwriting spay/neuter and veterinary surgical costs, furnishing pet food, hay and medication to needy households and sponsored feral colonies are but a few of our traditional challenges.
We sustain our commitment solely through the generous contributions and donations of caring individuals.
Financial donations help pay for food, veterinary expenditures, pharmaceuticals, and boarding. We even have a few free, easy ways you can support our work!
100% of your contributions go directly towards animal care!
Learn more on our donate page!
There are countless ways to help animals in Southeast Idaho.
If you have a useful skill and want to help give us call!
We look forward to hearing from you 🙂
What You Can Do
Animal cruelty in any form is a crime. Report incidents of domestic pet abuse to:
- PAWS (208-339-0258 or 208-406-3904)
- Pocatello Animal Shelter (208-234-6156)
- Idaho Humane Society (208-342-3508)
- Your local police department
To report the lack of adequate feed, shelter, or water regarding livestock and beasts of burden, refer to your local county sheriff’s department.
If you witness or observe an injured animal or wildlife in distress, or the willful harming or mistreatment of wildlife, contact the Idaho Fish and Game Department (208-232-4703) in your area.
Reporting Repeat Offenders
To report habitual violators or common abuse observations, the Pocatello City Council meets several times per month to address problems and allegations.
Proper Winter Provisions
Idaho winter weather can create extremely harsh living conditions for outdoor pets and animals.
Adequate shelter must be available for outdoor pets during the cold winter months.
Heated water bowls and sufficient food should be available for easy access.
