Adopting/Releasing a Pet

Our Adoption Policy

Anyone wishing to adopt an animal is required to complete an application. HHP must ensure that the animal being placed will be well taken care of by screening those seeking to adopt. If a pet has not been spayed or neutered, those adopting must agree, in writing, to doing so by our veterinarian. If another veterinarian completes the procedure, HHP will provide a certificate entitling you to a partial refund for the sterilization procedure. The adoption fee includes rabies shots when necessary, and distemper and parvo vaccinations.

The adoption fee varies based on the type of animal, age, and unfunded medical treatment received. A portion of the fees collected also help HHP pay for basic needs and the spaying and neutering of other pets in the facility.

HHP will gladly answer any questions and assist whenever possible after the completion of adoption. Please remember that HHP will accept relinquishment of the pet if, after adoption, you determine that your home is not a good match for the pet.

Relingquishment Instructions

How to Relinquish an Animal

HHP is able to house up to 100 cats and 40 dogs at its facility. As such, we do not accept drop offs and are able to take in pets only when space is available. Please call us at (406) 860-8735 to coordinate relinquishment and provide information about your pet so that we are best suited to provide an appropriate home in the future. We always have room for puppies and will help spay the mother. A financial donation is greatly appreciated to help defray the cost of veterinary care, housing, and food for your relinquished pet(s).

We are committed to reuniting lost pets to their owners, and are happy to log information about a lost or found pet in case it is turned in to our shelter.
