When Ladybug first arrived at the shelter, she was pregnant and eventually gave birth to 11 adorable puppies in foster care. She just recently weaned her puppies and more of her personality is coming out every day! She loves to run and play, and absolutely loves to have her belly rubbed. If Ladybug sounds like she could be your next BFF, she is available for adoption via The Humane Society of Western Montana. They can be reached at (406) 549-3934.

This handsome retired gentleman is Red. He is a 10-year-old Blue Tick/Bloodhound mix, who enjoys walks on or off-leash and playing with toys. Red also enjoys a game of good old-fashioned Fetch. This sometimes-shy fella is playful and affectionate when he gets to know you. Red has been at the Salmon Animal Shelter for 4 years and they’d really like to find him a forever home where he can have the warmth and love of family for the remainder of his golden years.  Red can be shy towards people and keep his distance until he gets to know you, which means he doesn’t always show well to potential adopters. Once he trusts someone, he will stay by their side. Red can encounter other dogs out and about and greet, but does not seem to get along with other dogs long-term; and he cannot go to a home with cats. While situation dependent; Red will mostly likely need his new home to have a fenced yard. If you’re interested in meeting Red, the shelter, operated by the Lemhi County Humane Society, can be reached at (208)756-4100.


This handsome guy is Cephus. He is a Blue Heeler believed to be about 3 years old. Cephus’ ideal forever family lives in the country and has lots of jobs to keep him busy. He can be a bit hyper, so keeping him busy is best. Cephus loves people but needs to be the only pet in the home. If you’re looking for a canine companion to help with ranch chores, you need to meet Cephus. He is available for adoption through the Bitter Root Humane Association. They can be reached at (406) 363-5311. An adoption application can be found on the shelter’s website, or by clicking here.


This is Carly. She came to the shelter a bit thin, so they’re working on getting some weight back on her as well as her making her beautiful coat shine. Carly has also had a bad habit of chewing on her bowl through the years which has caused her teeth to wear prematurely. This sweet girl is looking for a forever family who can be patient, and show her lots of love, while they work with her. Carly is available for adoption via the Montana German Shepard Rescue. They can be reached at (406) 493-2264. You can begin the process by filling out an adoption application.


This is Murphy. He is a Border Collie mix who is approximately 5 years old. This sweet boy is very energetic. His ideal forever home is one with adults who like to move as much as he does. Murphy is a very friendly canine who he gets along well with most other dogs. He’s also house-trained, and up to date on his vaccinations. Murphy is basically the perfect roommate! If you think Murphy could be the perfect addition to your family, he is available through All Hearts Rescue in Polson. You can contact Lisa at (406)880-7672 for more information.


This is Aguane. This beautiful girl is five years old and finds herself looking for a forever family, as her previous family had to move and was unable to take her with them.

If you think you might be interested in making Aguane your adventure pal, she is available for adoption via AniMeals. They can be reached at (406)721-4710. You can begin the process by filling out an  adoption application.


This good-looking guy is Flint. He is a Great Pyrenees mix who is believed to be approximately 2 years old. Flint is a super friendly fella who has been known to climb fences, not to escape but to get to people. He loves attention!  This happy pup has done well with the dog he’s met at the shelter, and even aced his cat test. Flint is leashed trained and has had basic training. His ideal home has a fenced yard and a forever family excited to spend time with him. If you think Flint might be a good fit for your family, he’ll be available for adoption in early April through Great Pyrenees Rescue, Montana. The rescue can be reached at (406)370-3308, but they request that you fill out an adoption application to start the process.
