Dog Boarding in Helena

Helena, Montana is the state capital and a city represented by its stunning Victorian architecture. Founded as a gold camp in 1864, today Helena is the 6th largest city in Montana. After experiencing a wealth boom in the late 1800s, Helena was home to the most millionaires per capita than anywhere else in the world. Home to outdoor enthusiasts and dog lovers alike, Helena has one dedicated animal shelter and several others in nearby cities:

Lewis & Clark Humane Society is a dedicated adoption center located in the heart of Helena. A non-profit organization working to end pet overpopulation and improve the humane treatment of our furry friends, Lewis & Clark also offers public outreach and education classes, and protection for citizens worried about the welfare of their pets. The facility was founded in 1964 as a solution to the growing lost and abandoned pet problem Helena was facing. Today they serve a population of around 70,000 in southwestern Montana. 

Located about an hour from Helena in Ovando, MT, Rolling Dog Ranch Animal Sanctuary rescues, shelters, and re-homes disabled animals. Founded in 2000, Rolling Dog caters to blind dogs, horses, and other animals with disabilities. While many of the animals remain living on the ranch, the Sanctuary does get healthy animals that are available for adoption. 
Located an hour from Helena in Butte, MT, the Chelsea Bailey Butte Silver Bow Animal Shelter is run by a compassionate team of individuals dedicated to giving abandoned, abused, or neglected pets a second chance at life. Before finding them a fur-ever home, the shelter provides any necessary medical care and the care and training needed to make a successful transition from the shelter.
