Thank you for your interest in adopting a homeless
animal from the Missoula Humane Society! Your choice
to bring a shelter pet into your life is a great one.
You are showing great smarts and compassion. By adopting
a pet you are saving a life and showing this four-legged
wonder that people really are good.
Take a moment to browse the photos of animals available
for adoption. Please feel free to contact us for more
information about an individual animal. If you are
seriously interested in adopting, we suggest that
you visit the animal at the shelter to be sure that
he/she is compatible with all members of your family.
A great way to start is by filling out our adoption
Matchmaking Form. We ask you all sorts of questions
about what type of companion you would like so that
we can gauge who might fit best into your lifestyle.
Having all members of the family fill this form out
together even before visiting the animals is a great
way to come to an agreement about what type of pet
you want. Bring your Matchmaking form to the shelter,
and our staff would be happy to assist you in finding
the pet that best suits your lifestyle.
Remember, acquiring a pet is a lifetime commitment
so be sure and take the time necessary to make an
informed decision about who will join your family!
We have a few policies regarding adoption:
All animals must leave the shelter
spayed or neutered.
We require that landlord approval
if you rent.
All dogs are temperament tested
before adoption. We reserve the right to cancel
an adoption should the dog not pass our behavioral
Please allow ample time to complete
the adoption process. It may take anywhere from
one hour to several days to complete an adoption.
Just remember, your new companion will be with
you for life, so spending a little time is worth
