We are here to protect and speak for the animals that have been lost, abandoned, surrendered and injured. The Deer Lodge Animal Shelter is a safe haven for all animals big and small. We are known as a no-kill shelter, the animals that come in are either adopted or they stay until their last days.
We do accept donations for all animals whether it be bedding, dishes, food etc. We care for each animal that comes our way like they were our family pet. Adoptions are carefully monitored and at this time we have a 100% success rate. We want all our animals to be placed in good loving homes that is the number one goal.
The shelter also does emergency boarding but each animal must be vaccinated and have a health certificate before coming in.

We have 2 wonderful volunteers who walk and play with the animals at the Deer Lodge Animal Shelter. We depend on these volunteers because they help with socializing the animals. Our volunteers also have been helping get the shelter into good repair but we have a long way to go. We also have a couple of foster homes that help with small dogs when necessary.
