Stafford Animal Shelter

Click here to view our available animals.

The Stafford Animal Shelter is a "humane society," but is not affiliated with a national organization and we receive no support from federal or state government agencies or national animal welfare groups. Rather we are a non-profit organization whose work is supported by the community through individual donations, business partnerships, endowments, fundraising events, and proceeds from a Montana state license plate with a Shelter design. We also receive grants.

Visit us 11 AM and 5 PM, Tuesday –  Saturday:

We're located east of Livingston on the Frontage Road. Look for the green buildings and “Friends for Life” sign.

From Livingston, head east on Park. We are a little over a mile past the bridge, just before the I-90 interchange. From outside of Livingston, take exit 337 off I-90. Turn west. The shelter is the first building on the left. Map.


We seek to make ideal, life-long matches and work diligently to match the perfect pet for your family and lifestyle
