Other Ways to Give

Heart of the Valley, is a private 501(c)(3) non-profit animal shelter located in Bozeman serving the Gallatin and Madison Counties including Bozeman, Belgrade, Manhattan, Three Forks, Big Sky, and West Yellowstone.

Every contribution to HOV we receive goes to critical expenses such as shelter, spay-neuter operations, food, medical treatments, vaccinations, and a caring staff for the thousands of lost and homeless animals at the shelter. Your donation will help to create a second chance for the animals at Heart of the Valley Animal Shelter. Please know that your generosity is deeply appreciated.  We are happy to count you among our valued community of supporters.

Heart of the Valley does not sell, rent, exchange or otherwise release information about its donors or customers.

Support your local animal shelterLicense Plate 2

Anyone who owns a passenger car, pickup, van, sport utility vehicle, motor home, large truck, bus or trailer that is registered in Montana may choose to display a license plate sponsored by Heart of the Valley.  There is no special process to apply for or renew most sponsored plates. The county treasurer issues or renews the plates when you pay the applicable vehicle registration fees and any special license plate fees.

Sporting a HOV license plate not only says you love your pets, but also you support our efforts to help those that cannot speak for themselves.
