You Can Help!

17th Annual Ken Shughart Humanitarian Award Dinner is here!

The Humane Society of Western Montana is thrilled to honor Connie Poten and Andy Sponseller!

Connie and Andy truly inspire the community through their philanthropy and unwavering love for animals. After five minutes at Ten Spoon Winery, Connie and Andy's winery, it is clear how dedicated this couple truly is to Saving Every Animal. Every Time. Their pets walk around the property; animals grace the labels of most of their wines; and their community involvement is directed at organizations that help all animals. Further, the couple never compromises these values for anything.

Thank you, Connie and Andy, for all the lives you have saved, and for the difference you make!
