If you've lost a dog, or if you've found a stray pet, here's what you need to do:

Outside city limits, but within Yellowstone County:

  • Stray dogs picked up by Yellowstone County Animal Control (406-256-2958) will be brought to Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter.  County Animal Control typically does not pick up lost/stray cats found in the county.
  • Even if your pet goes missing from the county, we highly recommend filing a lost report with YVAS and following the steps below as these animals can make their way into city limits/YVAS.

Inside Billings city limits:

  • Stray animals picked up by Billings Animal Control will be brought to the Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter.
