Pet Adoption League, which began as the Pound Animal League in 1988, is a non - profit organization focused on the care and welfare of all domestic dogs and cats. Originally a loose conglomeration of foster families, PAL is now housed in a shelter acquired in 2004. Located in Emmett, PAL serves Gem County and the surrounding areas. It is estimated that during the past 4 years, PAL has helped reduce the county and city euthanization rates by eighty percent. In 2018 PAL was able to add a whole new cat facility. We are always looking for new ways to improve our shelter so it is safe and comfortable for our pets as they await their new forever home.
