Holiday pet returns down at I.F. Animal Shelter

Every year after Christmas, the Idaho Falls Animal Shelter prepares for a line to form outside its doors with people regretting their Christmas pet adoption decision. But this year things were a bit different than expected. First, there was no line, and second there hasn’t been any returns. One animal control officer says after seeing this, it is a first in his five years of working there.

“It is a really stressful time of year to bring an animal into the house and believe me an animal senses all those stressors of their owners,” said Irene Brown, Idaho Falls Animal Control.
