POCATELLO – An exciting new look for the Pocatello animal shelter by way of a mural has been completed. Local artist Josh Pohlman finished the 7-foot tall mural on the dog runs at the shelter. Painted with a graffiti motif, the mural features over a dozen cat and dog silhouettes.

“When we saw the call for artists that Pocatello Animal Services put out, we jumped on the opportunity to work with such a great organization,” said Josh. “Our goal was…to make a colorful, fun, and inviting first impression.”

Animal Services director John Heinz says “The mural provides a fresh look to the building, and it certainly makes it stand out. Hopefully it leads to more adoptions.”
