We have municipal contracts and act as the impound facility for all of the cities in Blaine County. This allows us to temporarily hold stray animals while sharing in that cost with each of the individual cities and not carrying the entire cost ourselves. We work with other shelters and coalition partners to transfer in animals on a "space available" program that allows us to manage our own population and not be at risk for over-crowding. This gives high-kill shelters the opportunity to transfer healthy, adoptable pets that would otherwise be euthanized due to lack of space.
In addition to replacing the old shelter with a new, modern shelter that will better protect the health and well-being of our pets, we are building an education and event center, indoor and outdoor training areas, a top-notch spay/neuter center, and more. The new campus will be an amazing and happy hub for people to connect with each other and animals (whether they are looking to adopt or not) and attract people from all over the nation.
