HELENA — This week’s pet of the week at the Lewis and Clark Humane Society (LCHS) is a little different than usual, because it's all of them.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Humane Society had to postpone their largest fundraiser and close the shelter to the public and volunteers.
The dozens of animals at the shelter still need someone to take care of them, and while staff are doing their best, they could use some help.
LCHS is strongly encouraging people to consider adopting an animal or fostering one. Dogs and cats can’t get the COVID-19 virus and make for good social distancing buddies.
“We get an abundance of animals, all different sizes, breeds, personalities and for the most part they just had some bad luck and they ended up at the shelter,” said Kelsee Dalton Watts, LCHS executive director. “But it’s not their fault and they’re ready to go into homes. They’re great dogs and cats, they’re just looking for the right person.”
If people want to adopt or foster a pet, they should contact the adoption counselors at the Lewis and Clark Humane Society.
