Pet of the Week

*PAWS-ABILITY denotes a pet that has gone to a home on a trial basis. The length of the trial basis or "Paws-ability" is based on the needs of each animal/family, but typically one to two weeks as determined by the family and LCHS adoption counselor. If a Pet of the Week is returned to the shelter we will update its status.

Malcolm. February 2017

Status: Available for adoption

MalcolmThere’s a big event going on today at Petco – it’s an event you don’t want to miss! A few of the Lewis & Clark Humane Society residents will be running around Petco meeting new people and hoping to run right into the arms of a forever family! Let’s see who will be waiting for you at Petco today:

Mia is just two years old, and happens to be the longest-term animal at LCHS – she’s spent a whopping 228 days without a forever family! This little mama loves to hang out with people as long as they give her time to warm up. She enjoys the company of dogs, cats, and children with good dog manners. Don’t let this lovely lady spend another day without you!

Waffles is LCHS’ longest-term cat resident. While she’s been with us we have learned all sorts of things about this cute feline! She’s looking for a home where she can be the only cat in your life (she’s not good about sharing laps) and one with a cozy bed to nap in. Waffles does well with children and appears to do well with dogs.

Zeus, a laid-back 8-month-old mixed breed dog will be looking for a fun-loving owner who loves to learn just as much as Zeus does! He’s a smarty-pants who loves to play with puzzle feeders and dreams of participating in an obedience class or two.

Malcolm is ready to bring fun back into your life! This silly feline is always eager to show off his acrobatic skills; this guy can twist himself into all sorts of positions! This handsome young cat would love to entertain you in his new home!

What a fun bunch we have at Petco today! Be sure to stop by between 11-2 to fall in love with one of these wonderful pets! The Lewis & Clark Humane Society would like to remind everyone to drive safe – the roads sure are yucky lately! The shelter may be closed today depending on road conditions, so please check our Facebook page for any changes to today’s operating hours.


Queso. January 2017

Status: Available for adoption

PepperIt’s a feline fiesta at Golden Girls today! Queso and Salsa are ready to spice up your life with their wonderful personalities, so don’t hesitate to adopt one (or both) of these great cats!
Queso is an eight year old with a heart of gold! He absolutely loves to be around people, always greeting them and asking for attention. Right now Queso’s days are spent napping in a cozy cat bed, but he hopes to expand his activities to TV watching and human snuggling in his new home. Best described as a laid-back guy, Queso gets along well with other cats, dogs, and most children. Because Queso is eight years old, we have lowered his adoption fee to just $37.50! Queso promises to be your best friend, to always keep you company, and to keep you warm during this cold winter!

Salsa is here to keep your party going! This outgoing cat is filled with personality! He enjoys being the center of attention, and loves to show off his silly ways. Salsa is always ready to be pet or held, and when he’s not in your arms he’s always eager to chat with you about the events of the day (believe me, Salsa never runs out of things to talk about). Salsa doesn’t ask for much when it comes to a forever home, just a loving family made up of people and cats – no dogs please! In exchange for a wonderful forever home, Salsa promises to be your best friend!

These will be two cats are eagerly awaiting their forever families, and they hope today will be the day they go home! Salsa and Queso are hanging out at Golden Girls (505 North Last Chance Gulch) today from 11-1. After that, you can find these two (and many more felines) at the Lewis & Clark Humane Society until 4:30 this afternoon.


Dosr. January 2017

Status: Available for adoption

DosIf Dos put a personal ad out in the paper we imagine it would look something like this:

Snuggly senior desperately seeks forever companion. Must love snow, naps, and cuddling. If you are interested in spending your life with a spunky senior gal, please meet me at Tread Lightly today from 11-1 p.m.

It’s really a bummer that this lovable lady is still at the shelter, 10 year old dogs should be spending their days with their family. Dos is no exception. She’s a fun-loving, snuggly dog who wants nothing more than a family to call her own. Turned into the shelter 59 days ago because her owner was ill, Dos has been looked over again and again by potential adopters. These past few months have been hard on Dos but she continues to hold her head high and wait for her happy ending.

Dos loves rolling in the snow, warm beds, and snuggling with her people. She’s a friendly gal who loves people aged 10 and older, and prefers to be the apple of your eye. She’s easily entertained, and would love to participate in all sorts of outdoor activities with her new family. Dos is a truly wonderful dog who deserves a second chance at love. Don’t let this sweet lady go homeless another day! Drop in to Tread Lightly (335 North Last Chance Gulch) today from 11-1 to meet Dos.

Pepper. January 2017

Status: Available for adoption

PepperHey guys, Pepper here! I’m in a bit of a pickle and I need your help. My family wasn’t able to keep me, so I’m in need of a second chance. Can you give me the home I need? I promise to be your best friend, in fact, I’m a really good fit for anyone who wants a fast friend! Want to know more about me? Keep on reading!

I’m a pretty laid-back gal, I prefer to go with the flow and I don’t get hung up on the little things. I lead a pretty quiet life; I prefer napping to partying and I enjoy the simple things in life like daytime TV and knitting. It sounds like I’m a pretty boring feline, but I promise, it’s not always naps and Dr. Phil when I’m around - I also love to play! Balls and string are my favorite, and I find that daily play sessions help me keep my girlish figure. All of my wonderful purr-sonality traits make me a great companion for anyone with children, dogs, or other cats – like I said, I’m pretty laid-back!

At my age, it can be hard to find someone who wants an 8 year old companion but I have faith that there is someone out there for me. All I need is a cozy bed to nap in, some string to play with, and someone who likes to pet cats. Honestly, you can’t find a better companion than me! LCHS wants me to remind you that cats that are aged 5 and older are half-priced; you can’t do better than that! While I don’t like to ask for things, I would like to ask you if you can give me a forever home. I will be at Birds & Beasleys (2 South Last Chance Gulch) from 11-1 today. Stop in to get bird food, and adopt me!


Dos. January 2017

Status: Available for adoption

DosAll the senior ladies, all the senior ladies, put your paws up! Dos is ready to show off all of her wonderful quirks at the Base Camp today!

At 10 years old, you would think Dos would be ready to settle down into the quiet life, but you couldn’t be more wrong! Dos is ready to have some fun; whether she’s rolling in the snow or playing with tennis balls this lady is full of energy! When she’s done having fun, Dos likes nothing more than cuddle up with you and nap. You’d be surprised, this old dog is itching to learn new tricks!

Dos is hoping to find a home where she can be your best friend – your only companion. She doesn’t like sharing her humans with dogs and cats. Be sure to stop by the Base Camp (5 East Broadway) today from 11-1 to fall in love with this adorable golden girl!


Dos. January 2017

Status: Available for adoption

MalibuNew year, new you. Why stick with the same old resolutions you make every year? Why not try a new one? This year, you can resolve to adopt a shelter animal!
Let’s face it, you’re tired of trying to find time to go to the gym and work out, you’d much rather just stay at home watching Netflix. Why not adopt a friendly cat like Rambo, a 5 year old lap cat, to join you in your quest to binge-watch action movies? Or, if you are committed to being more active, you could bring your new dog Malibu, a 6 year old Pit Bull, with you on your evening walks! With so many different personalities to choose from, fulfilling your 2017 resolution will be easy!

There are currently 30 animals awaiting their forever homes at the Lewis and Clark Humane Society. Some big, some small, some fluffy, and some not. Despite their different appearances, they all have one thing in common – they want a second chance at love! We have cuddly dogs, like Dos! Dos is 10 years old, and would rather spend her golden years snuggling with the people she loves. Looking to start your own podcast this year? If so, Ella makes the purr-fect co-host! She’s a talkative feline with an outgoing attitude – perfect for reeling in the listeners! Want a project? Winnie is the cat for you! Shy and a bit timid, she hopes to find a patient owner who will help her realize that humans aren’t so bad.

Now is the perfect time to bring home a homeless pet and fulfill your resolution! All of our cats and dogs promise to bring love, silliness, and entertainment to your life if you just give them a chance! Stop by the shelter today between 12-4:30 to meet our wonderful animals and bring one home!


Luther. December 2016

Status: Available for adoption

LutherHey guys, Luther here. Listen, I’m hanging out at Sole Sisters today while I look for a family to call my own. I’m really hoping to find someone I can fall in love with. Let me tell you a bit about myself: I was found wandering the streets of Helena in early December. To be honest with you, I don’t remember much about my life before the shelter, but I do know that being out on my own really stinks. I really enjoy curling up in a cat bed and sleeping the day away. I’m an easy-going dude, and I don’t let much get in my way of relaxing. My perfect home would have people I could pal around with (I like to follow people around in the cat room), a cat or two to watch the birds with, soft places to nap in, and possibly a dog I can ignore. I’ve heard people say that black cats don’t get adopted quickly, but I have hope that someone will realize what a good companion I can be. If you think we are a perfect match, stop by Sole Sisters (327 North Last Chance Gulch) today from 11-1 to meet me.


Jack. December 2016

Status: Available for adoption

JackChristmas is just around the corner and all of the Lewis & Clark Humane Society residents couldn’t be more excited! Jack has hung his stocking with care, he’s helped us decorate the shelter with lights and ornaments – he’s been really good all month long! He really hopes Santa will see how good he’s been so he can get his Christmas wish – a forever home!

Jack knows no bounds when it comes to exploration, both figuratively and literally! Jack is no stranger to adventure, but his adventurous ways landed him in the shelter. From scaling mountains to climbing chain-link fences, Jack is agile and energetic. A true wonder dog, Jack is a wonderful family pet full of spunk and snuggles. Jack’s ideal home is one he can share with his favorite people (and their friends) as well as another dog or two. This handsome guy loves treats (especially popcorn) and would probably love to do spend quality time learning all sorts of new tricks with you. Because this dude is an expert adventurer, he is also looking for a yard with a six-foot privacy fence.

Honestly, there’s just too many amazing things to say about Jack that we just can’t fit it all in this article. We all love Jack so much and want to see him finally find his forever home! Please stop by Rock Hand Hardware (2414 North Montana) today from 11-1 to meet this wonderful guy!


Klaus. December 2016

Status: Available for adoption

KlausDear Santa,
Have you ever tried yoga?! I haven’t, but I’m going to try it today! Gentle Healing Wellness Center (513 Saddle Drive) is hosting some of us shelter cats for the first Cats on Mats – I’m so excited!! The opportunity to meet new people (and hopefully find a forever family) is amazing, and I really hope my Christmas wish comes true.

You may be asking what my Christmas wish is – I want a lap to sit on this Christmas! My perfect home would be one with lots of love, cozy beds, and a TV with a Netflix subscription! Santa, my wish is a simple one, I just want to find a family! I haven’t always had it easy, I arrived at the shelter after wandering around the neighborhood for a while. I have really adjusted to the cat room; I enjoy sleeping by the heater and sitting on everyone’s lap as soon as they sit down. I don’t mind the other cats in the cat room, I’m learning to adjust to their personalities. While it's been lots of snuggles here at the shelter, it's not the same as having a forever home. I really, REALLY hope you can help me find a forever family.

I’ll be hanging out at Gentle Healing Wellness Center at 9:30, so can you please send someone my way! Thanks a bunch Santa!


Comet. December 2016

Status: Available for adoption

CometDear Santa,
I can’t believe you’ll be visiting us in just 15 days! I’ve been trying to get ready for your visit, but my cat roommates keep drinking your milk and the shelter staff won’t let me near the oven to bake your cookies. So, I thought the least I could do is write you this letter to let you know how excited I am to meet you!

My name is Comet, and I’m 5 years old. I arrived at the shelter just a week ago – I was wondering around in town and a kind citizen brought me here. So far everything has been going well, I get to hangout in the open cat room with my feline friends and when we aren’t getting love from people I get to pick any bed I want to nap in. You could say I have it made here. The fact of the matter is, while I am enjoying myself here, I’d much rather be in a forever home. I’m not one to get sentimental, but there is something special about waking up and opening presents on Christmas morning surrounded by your family. I’ve been thinking long and hard about what I want for Christmas, and honestly, all I want is a family to call my own.

My purr-fect home would be one where I can be snuggled and loved. I’d like a family who wants to talk to me (I like to chat), and one who lets me sleep on the bed with them at night. I get along well with the other cats.

I will be at Gentle Healing Wellness Center (513 Saddle Drive) this morning doing some relaxing yoga poses with some of my friends before heading back to the shelter. Please Santa, can you bring my forever family to me?

-Comet, LCHS Cat Room Resident


Oliver. December 2016

Status: Available for adoption

OliverDearest Santa,
I’m writing you this letter with the hope that you can help make my wish come true. My name is Oliver, I’m just 8 months old, and I’m currently residing at the Lewis & Clark Humane Society. My owners gave me up in early October, and I’ve been having a hard time finding a new family to call my own. With Christmas just around the corner, my wish is to spend my first Christmas in a forever home.

My dream is for a home filled with love, happiness, and lots of toys! A place where I can run around with my humans, and then cuddle up with them at the end of the day. I’m happiest when I can just be my silly self, but that’s not a side of me a lot of people get to see. Truth be told, I’m a bit shy around new people, and that has made it harder for people to adopt me. I’m not mean or anything, it’s just scary meeting new people. I promise though, once I warm up a little, I’m excited to see you! Please Santa, can you bring me someone who can love me just as I am?

My dream home is one without cats, but I may be fine with a dog companion. Calm children would also make good friends as long as they like to throw toys for me! Can you please bring my forever family to the Lewis & Clark Humane Society today? I know it’s a bit early for Christmas presents, but I’ve been a very good boy this year, I promise. I’ll be in the back kennel in condo #4.
Thank you Santa!


Bart and Shepard. November 2016

Status: Available for adoption

ShepardThanksgiving is over, and now the countdown to Christmas has begun! The cats and dogs at the shelter are preparing their Christmas lists, and while some are adding toys, beds, and other goodies to their list, they all have one thing on the top of their list – A FOREVER HOME! Shepard and Bart are just two of LCHS’ residents hoping to find a home for the holidays, maybe you can help their wish come true!

Bart has been with us since July, making him one of our longest-term dogs! It’s hard to understand why Bart has been without a home this long, he’s young, active, and a wonderful adventure companion! This handsome 1 year old Pitbull loves to splash around in a kiddie pool, he enjoys hikes in the wilderness, and most of all he loves to spend time with people. After you are done exploring with Barty, he loves to curl up with you and relax. He’s truly a wonderful companion searching for a family to call his own this Christmas. He does well with older children, and dogs that share his same personality.

Shepard the Siamese is one of our longest-term cats. She arrived at the shelter as a stray in mid-October and just hasn’t found her happy ending. The cat room is a bit overwhelming for her, and so she spends her days hiding out in a cubby. When it’s quiet, Shepard can be found sprawled out on a bed napping the afternoon away. She’s a shy sweetheart, who enjoys soaking up the sun and relaxing on a comfortable bed. When she wants to be, Shepard makes a great lap cat. At 7 years old, she isn’t looking for a wild home, she wants something quiet, a home she can maybe share with a cat, or a dog.

These two are just a glimpse of the wonderful pets currently waiting for their families at the Lewis & Clark Humane Society (2112 East Custer). Stop by today from 12-4:30 to adopt your newest four-legged friend!



Tinkerbell and Olive. November 2016

Status: Available for adoption

TinkerbellIt’s no fun getting old. It’s even worse when you are homeless. Today at Value Auto Sales, two of our senior ladies are hanging out hoping to go home for the holidays. Love, a warm bed, and snuggles are all these ladies ask for, can you help them out?

Tinkerbell has had quite the long and eventful year. She was brought into the shelter in late July after being abandoned by her owner. Months and months went by before we could finally put her up for adoption, and now here she sits in November, still waiting for her forever family to find her. Tinkerbell has the typical Dachshund personality—she’s stubborn, silly, and social all rolled into one little dog. Tinkerbell puts a smile on everyone’s face the second she comes waddling into the room; it’s so very hard for us to believe that she still hasn’t found her family.

Part of the reason Tink is still here may be due to her age. At eight years old she’s no spring chicken (though you couldn’t tell looking at her), but we are prepared to sweeten the deal to get this old hen a forever home. We are waiving Tinkerbell’s adoption fee today!

OliveA petite, sweet girl, Olive is a truly a golden girl! She’s 10 years old, and hoping to turn her life around after being homeless for so long. This cute little Manx is hoping to find a calm and quiet home where she can relax with her favorite person. Olive is declawed, and gets along really well with adults, calm cats, and calm dogs. All Olive wants is a home and family to finally call her own, can you help her out? In order to get Olive home for Thanksgiving, we have waived Olive’s adoption fee!

Value Auto Sales (40 West Custer Avenue) will be hosting our lovely ladies today from 11-1. Please stop by to meet Tink and Olive, and maybe take one of these guys home!


Khaleesi. November 2016

Status: Available for adoption

KhaleesiPoor Khaleesi! It’s been 6 months—that’s 177 days—and there still isn’t a home in sight for our lovely queen. We’ve been posting her on Facebook, talking about her on the radio, we’ve shown her at a few outreach events, but still no home. Khaleesi hasn’t given up hope yet, she still eagerly awaits her forever family. Today she is hanging out at The Base Camp (5 East Broadway) from 11-1 – please don’t let this cutie go homeless any longer!

It’s hard for us to understand why Khaleesi is still here; but at the same time, we get it. While we see a sweet, playful Pitbull, others may see a plain black Pitty who barks and jumps around in her kennel. It can be difficult for people to see the sweet dog underneath the stressed one but we promise, Khaleesi is one dog you don’t want to miss out on. One of her favorite things is long walks; she absolutely loves breathing in the crisp fall air while she feels the leaves crunch underneath her feet. She sniffs and trots around, so happy to feel the freedom that comes with a good long walk. After the walks, Khaleesi is eager to curl up next to you on the couch while enjoying some TV (and with winter coming, she would surely love to catch up on Game of Thrones while the snow falls outside). A home with no other pets and a secure fence is all Khaleesi asks for when it comes to her home environment.

Six months is way too long for any animal to be without a home, especially one so sweet and eager to please. Now is the perfect time to take this lovely lady home – please don’t hesitate to give Khaleesi a chance! Don’t forget to stop by the Base Camp today from 11-1 to meet Khaleesi, you won’t be disappointed!


Louie. November 2016

Status: Available for adoption

LouieLooking for a forever friend? Someone to keep you company, someone who you can depend on to be there for you whenever you need it? If so, we have the cats for you! Like you, Louie and Iris are also searching for their best friends. They are awaiting their soul mates at Golden Girls today—read on to find out if Louie or Iris is the one for you!

Louie has had a rough go at things lately. He initially arrived at the shelter in April, and while here he was shy and nervous in the cat room. Unfortunately, the home he had just wasn’t the right fit, and so he came back to our care. There is a silver lining to Louie’s sad story though, being in a home really made Louie more confident. Gone was the timid cat we once knew; in his place was a silly, social, laid-back kitty eager for attention. Louie truly is a wonderful cat, and we know he would make a great companion for anyone who needs a friend whether it’s a young person, and family, or another outgoing cat looking for a partner.

Like Louie, Iris has had a tough time finding a forever home. During the past three months Iris has been eagerly awaiting a forever family, although no one has come forward to make her wish come true. Iris is a friendly and independent feline that likes to divide her time between sun-bathing and sitting on your lap. Ideally, Iris would like to find a home where she can explore with you during the day, and in the evening she can find warmth in your lap. Unlike Louie, Iris would love to be the only cat in your home.

Be sure to stop by Golden Girls (505 North Last Chance Gulch) today from 11-1 to adopt these great felines!

Buddy. October 2016

Status: Available for adoption

BuddyThe witching hour is upon us and the Lewis & Clark Humane Society residents are ready to join in the spooky fun! Among them, Buddy, a lovable Rottweiler mix, is ready to find a home to haunt—will you adopt this ghoulish guy?

This devilishly fun canine loves the simple things in life. Neighborhood walks, the smell of fall leaves, and warm snuggles on the couch are just some of Buddy's favorite autumn activities. Laid-back and carefree, Buddy just wants to find someone to cuddle with! Buddy gets along with older kids and dogs. This handsome 7 year old has been at the shelter far too long, and we hope he can find a home for the holidays! Because of his age, Buddy’s adoption fee is just $37.50!

Joining Buddy in his search for a forever home is Jordan, a young and spirited Hound searching for her “boo” this Halloween weekend. She’s a smart little lady who knows how to trick for a treat. “Sit,” “down,” and “sit pretty” are just a few of the tricks in Jordan’s arsenal, and she’d love to continue learning new things! Best described as an energetic sweetheart, Jordan is looking for someone who wants to explore the outdoors. Jordan would like to find a home without kitties!

Stop by Tread Lightly (335 North Last Chance Gulch) today from 11-1 to meet these two goofy ghouls!


Maggie. October 2016

Status: Available for adoption

MaggieAre you joining us at Wine for Whiskers tonight?! We are so excited to share a night of music, wine, and fun with you at the Radisson (2301 Colonial Dr.)! The festivities start at 7 p.m. with wine tasting and silent auction and end with music by the Might Flick! Tickets are $50 for one, or $90 for two and can be purchased at LCHS or at the door! Maggie and Khaleesi, two shelter animals looking for a forever home, can’t be at tonight’s event, but they are hoping you will stop by the shelter today to adopt them!

Maggie’s first few weeks at the shelter were no fun at all. She was scared and very shy, and we couldn’t seem to make her happy. Her days were spent hiding in a cat cubby, and only coming out occasionally to receive affection from shelter staff and cat room volunteers. We couldn’t stand to see Maggie this unhappy, so we decided to set her up in a nice, quiet foster home. She flourished! Maggie has adjusted well to home life, but she knows her foster mom can’t keep her forever, so she’s hoping to find a cozy household to join before the snow starts falling. This petite two-year-old kitty enjoys playing with toys and relaxing on the couch with her foster mom (she really enjoys Disney movies and The Walking Dead). Maggie has made herself right at home, and has been trying to make friends with the other cats in the home. This sweet little lady would make a great companion for anyone looking for a quiet friend to keep them company.

Winter is coming, and Khaleesi is hoping to leave the shelter behind before it arrives. This adorable people-oriented dog would absolutely love to spend this fall season cuddling with her new family while watching TV. Khaleesi isn’t all about snuggling though, she loves the changing colors on the trees, and would enjoy touring the neighborhood with you by her side. Khaleesi would love to be the center of your world, as she prefers to be the only pet in your life. This lovely little lady has been with LCHS for 5 months now – she’s ready to find her home!

While Khaleesi and Maggie can’t make it to tonight’s festivities, they hope you stop by to say hi to them before you get ready to go! The Lewis & Clark Humane Society will be open from 12-3 today, so be sure to stop by, adopt a pet, and join us tonight for Wine for Whiskers!


Beans. October 2016

Status: Available for adoption

BeansWith the chilly weather upon us, it’s time to bring out the warm blankets and sweaters. It’s time to curl up with our favorite pets while we watch Halloween movies and enjoy the warmth of each other’s company. Three very special dogs are looking to find their cuddle buddies today at the Lewis & Clark Humane Society. Beans, Charlie, and Khaleesi all hope to bring some sunshine into your life this fall! They have told us what they are looking for in a home—are you the one for Beans, Khaleesi, or Charlie?

Beans’ favorite thing about fall is the idea of curling up on a cozy dog bed in front of a fireplace or heater. This handsome Catahoula mix has never known what it’s like to have a stable home life, and that is something he desires more than anything. Flown up to LCHS from California over 470 days ago, Beans remains at the shelter with no forever home in sight. Beans is looking for a human companion that has the time and patience to go slow as he is cautious when meeting new people. A quiet home is best for Beans, one without cats or children is necessary. He gets overwhelmed easily so a life without lots of chaos and change is a must for this silly boy. Although Beans seems like a difficult dog, if you give him a chance he will be the most loyal companion you will ever have.

Khaleesi is hoping to leave the shelter behind in favor of a home with access to all of the Game of Thrones episodes! This adorable people-oriented dog would absolutely love to spend this fall season cuddling with her new family while watching TV. Khaleesi isn’t all about snuggling though, she loves the changing colors on the trees, and would enjoy walking through the neighborhood while the leaves fall to the ground. Khaleesi would love to be the center of your world, as she prefers to be the only pet in your life.

Charlie is one active boy! He enjoys running around in the yard (and may even help you pick up any stray leaves). This lovable Husky mix loves squeaky toys and hanging out with people. Charlie hopes to find someone that leads and active lifestyle. Charlie just wants to find a best friend – and he hopes that can be you! I promise, this handsome guy will be there for you through thick and thin!

Be sure to stop by the Lewis & Clark Humane Society today from 12-4:30 to meet these fabulous canines!


Bart. August 2016

BartAt Lewis & Clark Humane Society we are celebrating Labor Day weekend by staying close to home. The dogs and cats are hoping to relax a bit while searching for their forever homes – maybe you can take one of these lovable animals home this three-day weekend!

Blue is a cute 5 year old Aussie and the last of our Crow Reservation dogs! He’s a friendly guy who loves food, kisses, and food! Blue likes to be the center of attention, always ready to greet whoever he meets with a smile and a tail wag. This happy-go-lucky guy has a heart of gold and can’t wait to find a cat-free family to spend his life with.

Like Blue, Bart has nothing but love to give. He’s the most handsome Pitbull you will ever meet! This dapper gentleman has energy for days, and he’d love to find someone that lives an active lifestyle. Bart would also love to take obedience classes, and possibly even agility! Chew toys are Bart’s all-time favorite toys, but he loves people just a bit more. He makes the perfect couch or hiking companion. If you are looking for a loving dog look no farther than Bart!

Last but not least is Charlie, a lovely husky mix, who, like Bart and Blue, is a people pleaser. He’s a fun-loving guy who loves squeaky toys and running around. Charlie’s ideal home is one with people to love, and a big yard to enjoy! He would prefer to be the only pet in your life, but he will make you the center of his world.

Stop by the Lewis & Clark Humane Society from 12-4:30 to meet this great guys, as well as our other cats and dogs searching for their forever homes!


Bubbles. July 2016

Status: Available for adoption

bubblesUnder the sea, under the sea, darling it’s better down where it’s wetter, take it from me! Bubbles, our bouncy, beautiful feline is searching for something better – to be part of your world! This lovely lady is searching for her heart’s desire among the thing-a-mabobs and whats-it’s at Imagine Designs today – read on to learn more about our littlest mermaid.

Unlike Ariel, our Bubbles wasn’t born into a life of luxury – abandoned by her owner, Bubbles was brought into the shelter after being discovered in a storage unit with her two sisters. When they first arrived we noticed that Bubbles was more shy than her sisters, choosing to carefully observe the humans, curious about their behaviors. As time went on, Bubbles developed a love for humans, desperate to be around them. She’s always eager to be pet, but petting always turns into a full-on snuggle session. Her affection doesn’t stop at humans, she’s a cat and calm dog lover as well! We know this great cat would love to find a home with other cats to hang out with. Bubbles is a playful polydactyl always excited to be around the humans she loves so much.

Bubbles life took a turn for the better the day she was brought into the shelter; she received lots of love and attention, and a much needed surgery to fix her wonky hip. It has been 271 days since this beautiful brown tabby came through our doors, and we are ready to send her off with a forever family. Please stop by Imagine Designs (62 North Last Chance Gulch) today from 11-1 to meet Bubbles and her friend, 4 year old Fatticus. Make these lovely ladies a part of your world!

MickHey guys, Mick here! I’m looking for my forever family today at Clancy Days, and I’m hoping to meet you there! I’m a laid-back dude with a great attitude – the perfect family dog! As long as my family’s around, I’m in heaven.

I lost my home a couple months ago because my owner was no longer able to care for me. I was definitely sad to see my mom leave, and I was in a funk for a bit. The staff at LCHS gave me lots of extra love and attention, and I started turning back into my old, laid-back self again. I enjoy walks, sitting with people, and butt-scratches. I do well with dogs and kids, but I’m not a big fan of cats.

My perfect home would be one with a yard to run in, someone to take me on walks, and a family to snuggle up with at night. I’m so excited to go to Clancy Days; I hear it’s so much fun! I hope I meet my forever family today, it’s all I’ve been dreaming about since April!



Malcolm is ready to bring fun back into your life! This silly feline is always eager to show off his acrobatic skills; this guy can twist himself into all sorts of positions! This handsome young cat would love to entertain you in his new home!
