Meet your new best friend at the annual Adopt-a-thon event. The shelter’s hours are extended, adoption fees are reduced, and each adopted animal goes home with lots of extras including a toys, a leash (for dogs) or a carrier (for cats), a collar, a tote bag, and more.
This is an annual event for the whole family.
The Canine Classic is a run/hike for you and your dog on the trails on and surrounding the Resort at Paws Up in Greenough, Montana. Choose to either hike a two or five mile route, or run a ½ marathon. Participants can either choose several registration options: Pay a flat fee of either, $50, or register to collect pledges from friends. If you register as a pledge collector and raise a minimum of $125 you will get a lunch (hosted local brews included). You can also win one of many incredible prizes including a night’s stay for two with dinner at The Resort at Paws Up. 100% of the proceeds support the Humane Society of Western Montana.
The Canine Classic is a family friendly event that takes place in September of each year.
Ken Shughart Humanitarian Award Dinner
The Ken Shughart Humanitarian Award was established in 1997 in memory of our former board president, Ken Shughart who passed away unexpectedly from cancer. We honor a person that has gone the extra mile to help animals in our community. We combine presentation of the award with silent and live auctions, and dinner. The event raises funds to help us maintain our 98% adoption rate, offer programs that help people keep their pets, and to provide free educational programs for the community.
A live auction features our “Calendar Pets” auction wherettendees can bid to have their pet photographed by well-known photographer and Humane Society board member Elizabeth Stone, and featured in the annual Humane Society of Western Montana calendar.
