A new look. A new website.

The Lewis and Clark Humane Society is proud to bring you an all-new, up-to-date website to keep the greater Helena community informed on all the exciting changes happening with your local animal shelter.

Explore our new site. We have lots of resources to help pet owners, people thinking about adopting a dog or cat from the shelter, a calendar to keep you informed on community events, news about our ambitious campaign to build a new animal shelter, and information on how you can help us meet the needs of our community's stray, abandoned and unwanted animals.

Over the past three years, it has returned on average 47% of the dogs to their owners. Of the remaining number, 82% of the dogs were adopted and 18% had to be euthanized. For cats, 5% were returned to owners. 49% of the remaining cats were adopted and 51% had to be euthanized.

We hope you'll visit this site often, and find it to be a valuable resource to educate our public and enhance our community.
