Volunteer at the Kennel or in Your Home

We always need several new volunteers to take care of the animals coming to us every day. Some of our most-needed workers include: direct care of the cats or dogs, spending time with the aminals in foster care, cleaning dishes & litterboxes, handyman services, errands, special events, phone calls. Please text, call, or email Angie at 406-860-8735 or, and thanks in advance! -Read a letter from a Volunteer-

Foster an Animal in Your Home

We are always updating and expanding our list of foster “parents” for cats and dogs. This can be very rewarding work. Especially during kitten and puppy season, the need is great. So please call or tesxt (406) 861-3342 or (406) 860-8735 today, to find out more about fostering animals.

Feral Cats Need Homes and Sponsors

HHP is in great need of more people who can provide homes for feral (wild) cats, or who can foster the cost of spaying or neutering a feral cat. Many of these feral cats come from lower-income apartment complexes or trailer courts, where they have been left behind after a resident moves away. Others are unwanted children of cats that do have homes. They reproduce very rapidly, and the results are simply tragic. If you have a shed or you are willing to build them a simple shelter and can provide daily food and water, please call Angie at (406) 860-8735.

If you can’t provide a home for such a cat, there’s still a lot you can do. Please consider sponsoring the cost of fixing a feral cat: it’s $35 for a full sponsorship, which includes shots, or $20 for a partial sponsorship. If you know a feral cat or “trailer court kitty” that needs this help, call Kathy at (406) 208-0039 to make an appointment to get the animal spayed and to obtain instructions, assistance, and transportation, if necessary.
Here’s an article from the Billings Gazette describing the work that HHP has done for feral cats: Friends Look Out for Welfare of Feral Cats.

Angie Cook was stunned when a Billings family pooled its resources and talents to raise more than $1,600 to help her crowded animal rescue operation, Help for Homeless Pets.

Hung, 11, Nini, 9, and Long, 7, have spent most of their summer break selling lemonade during garage sales and offering their lawn-mowing and raking skills to neighbors and family to raise money for the facility.

Thousands of dogs in animal shelters across the country sleep on cold, wet, concrete floors 24 hours a
day, 7 days a week. Cats in cages have little alternatives to sleeping in their litter pans.
