In 2016, River Country is teaming up with the Snake River Animal Shelter in Idaho Falls for the 2016 Pet Project.  We’re looking to place homeless dogs and cats into homes with people who will love them, and with whom they will love back.  Each Monday at 1pm, Mindy Kary will showcase a dog or cat looking for a new home and family.  Will you open your home to one of these animals?  You may call the Snake River Animal Shelter for more information about any of our Strays of the week at 208-523-4219.  Or stop by and visit them at 3000 Lindsey Blvd. in Idaho Falls.  Visit the website to see all the animals available for adoption.

Cotton Top & Scamper – Week of November 14th

These two sisters have been together since birth and we are looking for a family who will adopt them together.  Scamper is a tortoiseshell with a beautiful long coat.  She is a little shy at first but loves people once she warms up to them.  She is a calm kitty and quiet.  Cotton Top is the Siamese mix who also has a long beautiful coat.  These sisters are 2.5 years old and miss each other immensely when they are separated.  Therefore there is a reduced adoption fee for whomever adopts these two together.  Adoption fee includes spay, shots, and microchip.  If you would love to bring these two adorable and well mannered sweeties into your home, please get a hold of the Snake River Animal Shelter.

Spotty – Week of November 7th

As you can tell, Spotty is a very fitting name for this 10 year old coon hound mix.  But don’t let his age fool you.  Even though Spotty is 10, he’s still a very active dog who enjoys company either from people, kids, other dogs, and yes, even cats.  Not only does he enjoy playing and hanging out with his favorite people, but Spotty also loves to talk in his coon hound way.  Kids will love playing with him – bark at Spotty and he will answer with a bark back.  He’s a lovable guy who was owned by an elderly person who surrendered him to the shelter when she could no longer give him the care he needed.  Spotty is sponsored, which means his adoption fee will be less than normal for you and your family.  He is neutered, has all his shots, and is micro chipped.  If you’d like to bring Spotty into your home, give the Snake River Animal Shelter a call.

Infinity – Week of October 31st

Infinity is an adorable 6 month old long haired, black beauty kitten who needs a home.  She is very calm and chill as a kitten and thoroughly enjoys people.  She loves to cuddle and just hang out with you.  She doesn’t mind other cats, dogs, or children.  She also enjoys playing, of course.  Infinity does have a medical condition that will require some care so she needs a good family who would be dedicated to that.  Her adoption fee is $95, which includes her shots, spay, and micro-chip.  If you’re interested in making Infinity a part of your family, please call the Snake River Animal Shelter at 208-523-4219, or visit their website at the link above.



Koda-Bear – Week of October 24th

This guy is the dog who has had the longest residence at the shelter so far.  He’s a ten month old Border Collie mix.  He is house trained, good with other dogs, and is as loving as can be.  His handlers have been working with him on his leash manners and he’s still a little insecure from his pre-shelter life, but is getting better.  Koda Bear enjoys people but needs to be in a family with older children.  His adoption fee is $126.00 and includes his vaccinations, neuter, and micro-chip.  If you’re interested in giving Koda Bear a home, please contact the Snake River Animal Shelter.

Mounds – Week of October 17th

Mew Mew Mew – Mounds was featured here in July as a young kitten and she still has not found her furever home.  She is now 20 weeks old, still playful and sweet and everything you ever wanted in a cat.  She arrived at the animal shelter on May 223rd with her litter mates.  She is the only one who hasn’t been adopted.  She loves to play with other cats and is very friendly.  She needs a family of her own to love and care for her and would love to be in a home to celebrate the holiday’s with.  Mounds has been sponsored which means her adoption fee is less; now only $70.  Adoption fee’s include the spay, all shots except rabies, and microchipped.  If you would love to bring Mounds into your home, please contact the Snake River Animal Shelter at 208-523-4219.  Visit their website to see all the animals looking for homes at
