Missoula County - Animal Control

Department: Animal Control
Missoula County Home




Animal Control would like to remind Missoula citizens that pets cannot be leashed to a tree, bike rack, street sign, or other item that is on public property.   We commonly see this practice along the sidewalks in the downtown area.  Again, animals can be unpredictable, to include being scared in your absence, and may react differently around a stranger who tries to pet them or simply walks too close to them.  The last thing you want is your pet being taken by a stranger.  Many businesses in our downtown area allow leashed pets into their business while you shop. 





ADOPTION EVENT:  Friday, May 16th at First Security Bank, 3220 Great Northern Way        10am-2pm

We will have dogs and cats for adoption at the event at a discounted rate.  Please come see us!




Come see us on Sunday May 18 from 11-3pm for Doggie Dash.  It is free to attend the Pet Expo.  You do need to register to participate in the Fun Run.  Doggie Dash will be held at McCormick Park.






By adopting from Missoula Animal Control, you truly are Saving A Life.


The shelter is FULL!!!!  If you have been considering adoption, please come down and see if you fall in love with any of our pets.
