The Humane Society of Northwest Montana provides a caring and safe environment for dogs and cats until they can be united with a forever home.
Owner-Adopters must be at least 18 years of age and provide proof of photo identification at the time of application/adoption. Applications must be fully completed to be considered. Owner-Adopters who rent from a landlord are asked to satisfy any requirements regarding landlord notification and approval for pet ownership and proof of a paid pet deposit, if applicable. For renters, landlord approval for pet ownership is required and verified. Adoption applications are reviewed and verified by Animal Care staff prior to approval. Therefore, please make sure to answer all questions and supply current contact information where needed. In many cases, this verification process may take more than 24 hours so please do not expect to take your new pet home on the same day that you complete an application. Adopters will be contacted as soon as possible regarding application status. In the event that further information or action is required of you, we will let you know as soon as possible. Your refusal to respond within 72 hours will be considered as a lack of interest and the application will be withdrawn. In-active applications are kept on file for 60 days. All adoptions must take place in person. We do not crate ship or transport animals via airlines. Due to facility constraints, the adoption center is not able to reserve or hold pets for interested parties. Adopters who have other dogs and cats in their household are required to provide proof that their animals are current on their vaccinations. Prior to adoption approval, adopters who have other dogs in their household are requested to schedule a mandatory “get acquainted meeting” at our facility between your animals and the animal(s) you wish to adopt.
