While behavior problems are one of the leading causes pets are surrendered to shelters, these problems can typically be resolved through training and management. The Humane Society of Western Montana's Behavior Helpline is a FREE consultation service for anyone having problems with their pets. Our goal is to help keep pets where they are happiest- in their homes.
Are you having problems with a family pet? Fido chews everything in sight? Fifi has accidents in the house? Scamper scratches the drapes? Call or email the Humane Society of Western Montana's behavior helpline. We offer free advice and materials to help you solve the problem and point you in the right direction so that you can keep your beloved pet!

Our Behaviorist is also available to take your call at 549-9295 during open shelter hours, Tue-Fri from 1-6 and Saturdays from noon-5 pm. If you call and must leave a messge, your call will be returned by the next business day. For the fastest service, please download and fill out our Behavior Helpline consultation form and email it to email@example.com. By providing details in advance about your pet, we will be able to maximize your time with our Behaviorist during your free consultation.
