The Chelsea Bailey Butte-Silver Bow Animal Shelter is a non-profit, county-supported facility. We are primarily open for adoptions, education and Animal Control pick-ups. We are taking owner surrenders on a case-by-case basis. Please call ahead before bringing in animals as space is limited.

We are here to educate the public about the importance of spaying and neutering, proper animal care and the responsibility of pet ownership.

We require every animal adopted to be spayed or neutered before they go to their new home. We vaccinate all animals immediately upon arrival.

We welcome volunteers, foster homes and fundraising ideas. We appreciate and accept all donations. We also provide memorials and "in honor of" donations.

If you have any questions or concerns please e-mail us at or call 406-497-6528. Please leave a message and we will return your call.

Thank you from our Shelter Staff and all our wonderful animals!
