About the Stafford Animal Shelter
The Stafford Animal Shelter is an “open door shelter” that accepts every pet in need: abandoned or homeless, unwanted litters from unspayed and unneutered animals, and those confiscated by control officers for cruelty. The only nonprofit animal care facility in Park County, we serve the people and pets of the greater Southwestern Montana community as the only Shelter in the region that accepts all lost or unwanted pets; not just dogs and cats. We also serve as the care facility for animals impounded for being at large, cruelty cases, and emergencies by city and county animal control officers. We open our doors to nearly a thousand animals each year with approximately half being reclaimed and half adopted.
