Welcome to the official Eureka Montana, Tobacco Valley Animal Shelter / Friends of the Shelter Site

A STATEMENT TO OUR AWESOME, FAITHFUL FAMILY OF SUPPORTERS; Tobacco Valley Animal Shelter and Libby Friends of the Shelter are currently housing and providing care for the animals involved in the Animal Cruelty seizure in Libby, which occurred August 2, 2016. TVAS has contracted with Lincoln County to provide sheltering for dogs and cats in the county since 2008. Due to legal circumstances, we are currently unable to discuss the specifics of the case with the public. While we greatly appreciate all of the offers of assistance from the community, the specific areas in which we need the most help are as follows: First and foremost (tax deductible) monetary donations are by far the most helpful, as the burden on shelter resources is tremendous. We have plenty of food for all of the animals due to the generosity of PetSmart Charities organization. Another commodity that we are in need of are towels, of the paper and cloth varieties. Small, soft bedding (please no electric blankets, sleeping bags, comforters, etc.) is another thing that would make the animals stay much more comfortable. As we are doing a great deal of laundry and cleaning, laundry detergent and dish washing soap would also go a long way! Financial donations can be made to Tobacco Valley Animal Shelter at P.O. Box 1815 Eureka, MT 59917 or through our Paypal account (link to the right). Please call (406)293-5665 if you have any questions. Thank you all SO much for your patience and support during this challenging ordeal. News Article
