This sweet boy is Boomer. He is a larger mixed breed dog believed to be approximately 5 years old. This sweet, sensitive boy loves cuddling with his people and relaxing on his bed. His favorite treats include cured Italian meats and cheeses, and his activity of choice is playing in the sprinkler during his morning walks. Boomer is a shy guy, who might take a bit to warm up at first, but once he’s your pal, he’ll never want to leave your side! His ideal forever home is a mature, low traffic one, as kids and strangers can be a little overwhelming for him. Boomer did not grow up meeting a lot of dogs, but he has recently had some polite sniffs with dogs while on walks. Based on those experiences, it’s believed that he may be able to live with another dog if they are respectful of his boundaries. If Boomer sounds like he could be the perfect canine for your family, he is available for adoption via The Humane Society of Western Montana. They can be reached at (406) 549-3934. You can begin the process by filling out a Pets & People Profile.


Meet Jorah Mormont! He is an adult indoor-outdoor tuxedo kitty who is looking for a forever home where he can do a lot of lounging, as it seems to be his favorite activity! Jorah would be an excellent pet for someone looking for a pleasant, reserved companion who can certainly not be described as hyper. If you’re interested in meeting Jorah, he is available for adoption via the Salmon Animal Shelter. The shelter, operated by the Lemhi County Humane Society, can be reached at (208)756-4100.


This cutie is Pixie. She is a 1-year-old Springer Spaniel mix. This energetic girl loves fun and she’s looking for a forever family who likes activity as much as she does. Her ideal forever home is one that has older kids and where she is the only canine, as she can be picky about her dog friends and doesn’t do well with cats. She also needs lots of room to run.  If you’re interested in learning more about Pixie, she 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 tall, good looking guy is Jericho. He was recently relocated to Western Montana from an overcrowded shelter in Utah, where his time was up. Jericho is a Husky mix, believed to be approximately 1.5 years old. He is a very friendly fella, who is fairly calm, but he needs a forever family who understands that he will need some training. If you’re interested in meeting Jericho, he is available for adoption through All Hearts Rescue in Polson. The rescue can be reached via their Facebook page or by calling (406) 212-7544.


This is Fluffy. He has been described as a magnificent king. If he is a ruler, he’s a gentle one. He enjoys showering people with affection and is a champion snuggler. Fluffy is looking for a BFF who will brush his magnificent fur when it grows back. He is looking for a forever family where he can be the lone feline, though he gets along well with kids and dogs. If you think you might be interested in making Fluffy a part of your family, he 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 is Max. This big sweetheart is a bit confused right now since he has only had one home since he was just a baby. He is believed to be approximately 3 ½ years old and about 160 lbs. Max has spent most of his time outdoors and was just an all-around dog – he played with one of the cats and with a baby goat – kind of a livestock guardian in that respect, although he will chase after chickens or ducks.  Max would come into the house at night – unless he wanted to sleep on the porch or under a shade tree.  He had the run of the property, although he would sometimes escape when a car entered or left thru the driveway gate – then he would be off to explore for a while. This smart boy is friendly to new people, is house-trained, and has basic obedience training. If you’re interested in meeting Max, he is available for adoption 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.


This sweet girl is Socks. She is believed to be a Hound mix, approximately 2 years old. This friendly canine was a young mother and a good one at that, but now she’s just waiting for her forever family to find her. Socks is very well behaved and she does great with people and other dogs. If you’re interested in meeting her, Socks is available for adoption via Thompson River Animal Care Shelter. TRACS can be reached at (406) 827-8722. An adoption application is also available on their website.


This is Luke. He is an approximately one and a half year old German Shepard. This well-trained canine is looking for a forever family who will appreciate his superior intelligence and his stunning good looks. Like many of us this time of year, Luke is extremely food motivated. He does exhibit some guarding behavior but this improves with each positive interaction. He gets along well with men and women, but a household with kids under 12 may not be the best family for Luke. If you’re interested in making Luke a part of your family, he is available for adoption via the Montana German Shepherd Rescue. They can be reached at (406) 493-2264. You can begin the process by filling out an adoption application.
