Welcome to the Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter

The Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter (YVAS) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that opened its doors officially in 2009.  We take great pride in caring for Billings’ lost and transitioning companion animals.  

Over the last decade, YVAS has grown to become the largest shelter in Montana, intaking over 5,000 animals every year.  The shelter is always evolving, striving to implement industry best practices and provide top-notch services for the animals and people of the Billings community.
