The Rimrock Humane Society headed by Sandy Church. Rimrock Humane Society is entering their 9th year of helping animals in Montana. Helping the homeless and neglected animals is their number one concern. RHS uses foster homes and works to network with other shelters and rescues. Here is a little about the Rimrock Humane Society in Sandy's words:

It is all about the animals, people! We here at the Rimrock Humane Society like to think outside the "box". We are blessed that our concept of maintaining a "virtual" shelter works so successfully! But how could it not? All of our animals live in the care of loving foster homes and NOT in a cage or kennel. Their lives, while they wait for a new forever family, are stress free and healthy. When potential adopters want to meet an animal, they do so in the comfort of a loving home observing that animal in a relaxed environment (getting a good "read" on the true nature of the pet). It is a win/win situation in which the animals, our adopters and our donors appreciate!

RHS uses technological advances such as computerized record-keeping and microchip pet identification that enhances the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of our low end operations budget. The Society operates as an independent nonprofit organization supported by individual and corporate donations. RHS does not receive government funding.

RHS is at the close of our eighth year of assisting the homeless, neglected and abused animals of this area. 2009 has proven to be a very busy year for us with 89 animals coming through our program. Some were reunited with their families, others went into specific breed rescue and the rest found loving, forever homes through our stringent adoption program. Every animal that passes through our program only reaffirms our commitment to the care, rehabilitation and placement of these “innocents” who cannot help themselves.

Our Community Spay/Neuter Program (CSNiP), now in its fourth year, continues to grow leaps and bounds as owners realize that for a nominal donation, they can be responsible and have their pets altered. Since the inception of this program to date, the RHS has paid for the spay/neuter surgeries for 587 cats and 277 dogs! Those are numbers to be proud of; certainly putting a dent in pet overpopulation for this area. It is a fairly expensive program to keep afloat with vet expenses totaling over $14,000 this year already, however, we are undaunted in our mission to help control the influx of unwanted pets in our community.
