On Saturday, August 29th the Lewis & Clark Humane Society sent emergency staff and volunteers to help with the evacuations in Heart Butte on the Blackfeet Reservation.

With a caravan of 4 trucks and trailers the staff and volunteers worked until 3:00am Sunday morning gathering 31 dogs, 12 puppies, 9 cats, 3 guinea pigs and 1 rabbit. They continued their efforts on Sunday and numbers are continually increasing.

Chicago based Humane Society of the United States employees from the Pets For Live Division have taken emergency flights into Great Falls and will travel to Browning on Monday to assist with the recovery and safe keeping of the animals in Heart Butte.

LCHS has been accepting donations at the Shelter beginning yesterday (Sunday, Aug. 30) and will continue to accept donations today until noon and then the rest of the week during normal working hours with are M-F noon - 6:00pm and Saturday noon - 4:30pm. The community has already been extremely generous and responsive to supporting this effort and we are grateful to everyone who has stepped up with help of dog/cat food, cat litter, dog crates, garbage bags and of course monetary donations. Thank you very much!!!

We still need YOUR help! LCHS has no idea exactly how many animals they will find. They have been grabbing panicking strays off the street as well as pulling animals from the homes. They will continue to need supplies for the next couple weeks. Here is a list of items currently needed, if you have these items please consider donating. If you don’t, please consider running to the store and purchasing some. If you can’t do that, please consider donating to the cause online (link below) and we can go purchase the additional supplies needed. Any brand will be just fine.

Current Needs:

  • Dog food
  • Cat food
  • Litter boxes
  • Litter
  • Flea spray
  • Trash bags
  • Pooper scoopers
  • Small wire kennels for the cats
  • Large wire kennels for the dogs
  • Financial donations to cover unexpected medical costs, special food, and anything necessary for the animals currently displaced.


We have set up an on-line giving page at https://www.youcaring.com/lewis-clark-humane-society-422271 and we urge anyone who wants to help to go this page to give a monetary donation. At times like these when we are unsure of the exactly what we will need and when, a cash donation is the best way to help.
