Who We Are

Governed by a Board of Directors, HSNWMT is a private, non-profit 501 (c)(3) limited admission, no-kill organization that focuses on finding caring, loving homes for orphaned cats and dogs and ending the destruction of healthy adoptable pets. Our Board of Directors consists of Flathead Valley residents who are concerned about animal welfare and who live and work in the area. The HSNWMT staff consists of a dedicated team of animal care and administrative professionals.

On behalf of the orphaned animals that we serve, thank you for the opportunity to acquaint you with our life saving organization.

Located between two of the fastest growing cities in Montana, Whitefish and Kalispell, the Humane Society of Northwest Montana is home of the Charlotte Edkins Animal Adoption Center.

Our facility which opened its doors to the general public on July 1, 2004 sits on fourteen acres and it is built in the shape of a horseshoe. Our original architectural design resembled a rectangle and was approximately 10,000 square feet in size. Due to budget constraints at the time of construction however, we had to sacrifice the amount of kennel space for dogs and decrease overall dimensions. After completion of our cost-cutting concessions of approximately 3,000 square feet in the final build-out, the result was 39 kennels for cats and 17 kennels for dogs.

What we do

Our Services

Adopt a Dog

Find your new best friend at the Humane Society of Northwest Montana!

Adopt a cat

When you adopt a cat from the Humane Society you know that you are introducing a healthy pet to your family.


At the Humane Society of Northwest Montana, volunteers make a difference in the lives of homeless pets every day.


Your gift will help offset the cost of spaying, neutering and caring for all those innocent homeless pets awaiting adoption.

We want to show you Tally and Tabitha, (we call them Mittens and Cali), they are getting so big and are the best kittens. They play all day long and have kept us entertained watching them.

Just wanted to give you all an update on Koda the Chow mix. It has been four years since we adopted him and he is doing very well. We love him very much and he has made us life long advocates for pet adoption. Thank you for the work you do!

Five years ago I adopted a small dog you called “Smitty” in September 2007. I can’t tell you how much love and joy he has brought our family over the years!

It’s been 9 mos. since my visit to your shelter, and Gypsie (now renamed Rosey) and I are doing quite well. Just wanted to let you know how we’re all doing, and that Rosey is a smart, sweet lovable girl, who, although crazy about her tennis balls, is otherwise just an awesome dog.
