The Importance of Special Events
As a nonprofit organization, our special events and the funds and awareness raised through them are crucial for sustaining our many programs here at the Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter. Be sure to follow our calendar below or keep an eye on YVAS’s Facebook page for all of our fun, upcoming events!
We partner with Petsmart Billings West Store to organize four off-site adoption events per year. Due to staffing, we are limited in offering and/or providing other off-site adoption events. We may be able to bring an adoptable animal or a Shelter Ambassador Animal to your event as schedules allow.
While our adoption events are limited, we are proud to report that animals at the Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter have great visibility in the community and find their new homes very quickly. Our cats’ length of stay is an average of 18 days in the shelter, whereas dogs’ length of stay is an average of 7 days before being adopted to their new homes.
Fundraise for the Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter
Fundraisers come in all shapes and sizes – here at the Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter, we appreciate them all! If you’re looking for a way to support the animals of YVAS, we’d love to help get you started.
