Our mission is to bring people and animals together
to enrich each others lives.
The Missoula Humane Society has been in existence
since 1963. We have taken in an estimated 150,000
animals since we first opened. In 1972 we received
just under 8000 animals. Since then, the number
of animals has decreased and stabilized at just
under 2000. We thank the early members and founders
of the Missoula Humane Society for their efforts
to promote and assist with spay and neuter efforts.
We are a 501 © 3 non-profit organization,
that receives absolutely no government funding.
We are a completely separate entity from the City/County
funded Animal Control agency.
What we do:
We are an open-admissions shelter that does
not refuse any animal, regardless of its size, age,
or temperament. Wildlife is sent to licensed rehabilitation
facilities, and all other animals are kept here
at our shelter. Although we do take in quite a few
other animals (birds, ferrets, rabbits,
guinea pigs) most of the animals we see are dogs
and cats. We offer educational programs of all types
for the community, and of course we have a companion
animal adoption program. In the year 2000, we took
in nearly 2000 animals.
