Heart of the Valley Animal Shelter

The mission of Heart of the Valley Inc. is to compassionately shelter the lost and surrendered pets of Gallatin and Madison Valleys, and to enhance the lives of people and companion animals through pet adoption and education. 

Heart of the Valley, Inc. (HOV) is a private 501(c)(3) non-profit animal shelter located in Bozeman and serving the Gallatin and Madison Valleys. 

HOV provided a service to nearly 3,700 animals in 2017.   

HOV is an open admission shelter; we accept any dog or cat brought to the shelter.  In addition to adoption services, we also provide a number of programs designed to support our community, helping to bring people and pets together.  We offer humane education programming for children, canine training classes and behavioral consultations, micro-chipping, ID tags, and a no cost spay and neuter assistance program (SNAP) for feral and semi-feral cats.
