Sandy is a very sweet, but very shy mama dog that came to TRACS from California. She came with her 2 tiny two week old puppies. Sandy had given birth to her babies in the bushes near a house in a neighborhood, and would stand in the street as if looking for her owner to come back and get her. Luckily she was rescued and is now safe and loved. Sandy is an angel and has a playful streak. She loves to do zoomies on the leash, and probably in a yard as well. Sadly Sandy has been through a lot in her short life and it has affected her. She will need a special person that is willing to spend a lot of time with her to gain her trust. She is worth all the effort though! While here Sandy has bonded very closely to one of the staff, but she is still skittish with most other people she meets. She is not the least but aggressive, just very fearful. She needs a person that won't push her to quickly, and someone that will help her build her confidence. She really is a great little girl, hopefully we can find her an equally great person! Sandy weighs between 12-16 lbs. and her adoption fee is $150 she is pending her spay and microchip but could be fostered into the right loving home.

We are a small budget organization and we receive no municipal or county support. We totally depend on donations to keep up our good work.

Come Meet Our Pets...

TRACS offers appointments daily 1-5 PM during the week excluding Mondays to see and meet adoptable pets. Tracs also adopts cats and kittens from Petsmart in Missoula, Montana. We have adoption days for dogs and cats at Petsmart additionally about 6 times a year. We also attend annual adoption events in the Missoula and Kalispell areas of Montana.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption fees do vary depending on the animal and all pets go to new owners already spayed and neutered, vaccinated and wormed. All adopters are given a two week adoption trial with an exchange guarantee if the animal does not work out. We require a completed adoption application, which is on line on our website, and a signed care contract. All pets go out with a copy of their signed agreement and a copy of their medical record. Fees for adult cats are $60-75 and kittens are $75. Fees for dogs are $125 to $200 for adult mixed breed up to $300 for purebred, small dog puppies.
