Shelter Skip Program

While shelter staff and volunteers do their best to comfort animals during their brief stays at Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter, we recognize that there is no place like home.  This is why we’ve decided to offer another option for rehoming a pet: Shelter Skip.  Shelter Skip is an online platform designed to keep animals out of the shelter through direct home placement.  In other words, pets go from one home to another, skipping the shelter altogether.  YVAS recommends that both potential adopters and rehoming families take necessary precautions and use their best judgment while utilizing the Shelter Skip Program.  Come with a list of prepared questions, use the buddy system & take a trusted friend, and follow social distancing guidelines. 

For Potential Adopters:

If you are a potential adopter, please scroll to the bottom of this page to view all adoptable animals through our Shelter Skip Program.  Please note that none of the animals listed via Shelter Skip have been behaviorally or medically evaluated by Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter.  To view adoptable animals currently at the shelter, click here.

For Rehoming Families:

To start the process of finding your pet a new home, click the button below to complete your pet’s bio.  Be sure to include 1-3 good, quality photos. Be as thorough as possible in your description to help increase your pet’s likelihood of finding a new home.

If you are not able to find your pet a new home via Shelter Skip, know that we are here for you and can help with the rehoming process.  Click here for more information on Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter’s rehoming process or call 406-294-7387 to schedule an appointment to bring your pet into the shelter.
