Our Mission

To provide a safe, compassionate shelter for pets in need, place these animals into loving, lifelong homes and advocate for the welfare of all companion pets.

Adoption Policy

We are committed to the health and safety of our community and staff. To do our part to help ensure human health and safety we are:

Offering one-hour adoption appointments
Offering video conference Meet & Greet appointments for pets in foster and the shelter
Requiring staff and visitors to wear a face covering while in the building and/or interacting with one another
Disinfecting spaces between visitors

*Complete our Pet & People Profile
For the time being and to help slow the spread of COVID-19 we are scheduling all adoptions. Adopters can view adoptable pets online and fill out one of our online pre-intake Pet & People profile.

*We’ll Call You
Our knowledgeable PAWS will help you get to know the pets you are considering adopting. If you are uncertain or having difficulty choosing a pet, we can make suggestions based on our one-on-one conversation and your Pet & People Profile.

*Schedule an In-person (or virtual) Meet & Greet
Keep in mind some of our available pets may be in temporary foster homes and may not be immediately available for an in-person meet - but we are happy to arrange a virtual Meet & Greet.

Adoption appointments are available Wednesday and Friday through Monday and, whenever possible, are made for the next day. We ask for a $10 appointment fee to reserve you spot. This fee helps support our Nandi Wishcamper Medical Assistance Fund and does not apply to a pet’s adoption fee.

Most pets are available to go home at the time of your In-person Meet & Greet. Our PAWS team will go over your new pet's medical records and answer any questions you may have about bringing home your new pet.

Please call 406-549-3934 for more information or visit our program info at for updates.
