Dog Ball

It’s Paw·di Gras time! Heart of the Valley is proud to announce the 35th Annual Dog Ball! Dog Ball is no ordinary dinner-auction, its pawsitively one of the best parties in town. 

Raise the woof! You’ll feel the energy the minute you arrive! If there’s one thing that brings us together, it’s our love of animals.  Our beautiful selection of silent auction items and exciting live auction will leave you begging for more! And, during the hosted cocktail hour, there will be plenty for you to sip and nibble as you visit and shop the silent auction.  Then it’s time for a delicious dinner followed by live auction and cash call, and then dancing and time to play catch up with your friends.

More information to follow.

Gifts in Loving Memory

Memorial gifts are a compassionate way to mark the passing of a beloved person or pet, and a respectful way to let family and friends know you care. We will send a pet memorial card or letter to the person you identify so they know you’ve made this gesture. Memorial gifts are then published in our shelter newsletter.

Visit our Planned Giving page for more.

You’re invited to visit the Heart to Heart Park located on the campus of Heart of the Valley Animal Shelter.

Take a moment to smell the flowers, listen to the sounds of the creek and enjoy the peaceful surroundings in the park.  With gorgeous views of the Bridger Mountains, walking trails, shaded outdoor seating, and places for reflection it is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon with your furry friend(s). 

It is difficult to lose a beloved animal, and even harder to find a way to honor your time together.  The Heart to Heart Park is a wonderful way to make a gift in honor of a special pet or animal-lover by sponsoring a bench, tree or structure and help create a future for homeless animals.  

Please contact Marla at 406-388-9399 ext. 203 or ed@heartofthevalleyshelter.org with any questions or to make a gift. 

Parking for the Heart to Heart Park is available in the Heart of the Valley parking lot.
