Twin Falls Animal Shelter adoption rates falling behind kennel population

By  | 

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) Are you looking for a fur-ever friend? If so you may want to stop by the People for Pets Twin Falls Animal Shelter because kennels are full and your best friend awaits.

The People for Pet's Animal Shelter pre-holiday Whiskers in Wonderland clear the shelter event was a huge success.

Now the shelter finds they're facing a slow adoption rate for the growing shelter population.

"We get them in and we try to get them out in a timely manner to try to reduce sickness and to try to make our adoptions the first ones and the best home for our animals so they don't have to come back," said Mallory Cox Kennel Manager.

In order to keep animals happy and healthy they need to constantly raise money for the medical fund. They do this through their annual Furball event.

"Almost everything from the Furball goes towards medical care for the animals for the year, until the next Furball. So it's pretty important and a lot of fun," Cox said.

Tickets for the 11th Annual Furball went on sale Feb. 4 and can be purchased before the event for $40, or at the door the night of for $45. The event is held at The Turf Club in Twin Falls on Mar. 2. There will be live music, appetizers, a no-host bar, raffle baskets, silent auction items, and a pet identification tag booth that will be personalizing tags for your animals on the spot, a photo booth, dancing, and more.
