In March 2021 YCSOAC partnered with Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter to provide a shelter for impounded dogs. Dogs impounded by YCSOAC are held for 72 hours or until owner pick-up. After 72 hours, the dogs are placed up for adoption. If you believe that your dog has been impounded, please contact Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter immediately.

To report county animal complaints/ concerns, an injured animal, stray/ at-large dogs and livestock, or to request an ACO, call YCSO non-emergency line: 406-657-8200
