Chelsea Bailey Animal Shelter



The Chelsea Bailey Butte Silver Bow Animal Shelter recognizes that there are families that are facing difficult financial times during the Shelter in Place order and may require assistance caring for their pets. We are committed to help keep animals in their loving homes by helping with food.  

If you need assistance, please call the Animal Shelter at 497-6528 Monday through Friday before 2 p.m. We will take your name, address, phone number, type of animal (cat/dog), and number of animals. We will have someone deliver the food to your address & leave it outside so there is no contact. Please Do Not come to the Shelter

If you would like to donate food, you can leave unopened bags outside the Shelters doors Monday-Sunday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. We are not currently accepting any type of bedding, toys, dishes, etc.

The B-SB Animal Services Department is pleased to announce that Butte-Silver Bow's Rabies vaccination ordinance (6.04.170). Effective September 4, 2019 has amended the ordinance and will recognize the rabies vaccinations using the following criteria:

1. The first antirabies vaccine shall be administered when the dog or cat is 12 weeks of age;

2. All subsequent antirabies vaccinations should be administered every thirty-six months for the life of the animal;

3. Animals who have never received an antirabies vaccination or animals who have no documented history of receiving an antirabies vaccination should have anirabies administered immediately; and a second antirabies vaccines administered at twelve months thereafter; and subsequent antirabies vaccinations every thirty-six months for the life of the animal. 

If you have any questions about your pets vaccination records please consult your veterinarian. 


The Chelsea Bailey Butte-Silver Bow Animal Shelter is a non-profit, county-supported facility. We are primarily open for adoptions, education and Animal Control pick-ups. We are taking owner surrenders on a case-by-case basis. Please call ahead before bringing in animals as space is limited.

We are here to educate the public about the importance of spaying and neutering, proper animal care and the responsibility of pet ownership.

Thank you from our Shelter Staff and all our wonderful animals!

  • Hi! I’m Luca! I am a total love bug and I would love to have a family of my very own. I am great with most other dogs as long as they don’t play too rough with me and I like most cats too. I love to play and go for walks, but I do have some hip issues that can limit the amount of time I play and walk. I also have to keep my weight under control and I require daily medication. I need a family that understands my special needs.
