Target: Ed Corrigan, County Attorney for Flathead County, Montana
Goal: Demand the maximum penalty for the person who allegedly neglected 37 dogs, resulting in the death of one.
Over thirty dogs were reportedly neglected and starved in a Montana home. They reportedly suffered from malnutrition and dehydration among other health issues. Demand justice for these innocent dogs.
“They came in in very rough shape,” stated Flathead County Animal Shelter Director Cliff Bennet. Veterinarian reports showed that the dogs were emaciated, dehydrated, and their fur was matted to their skin. A couple of the dogs reportedly suffered from untreated broken legs and one had to be put down due to the extent of its injuries.
The dogs were removed from the home and are currently in the custody of the county animal shelter. Their owner is under investigation and has not yet been charged. Demand that authorities pursue animal cruelty charges and that the owner receive the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.
Dear County Attorney Corrigan,
Thirty-seven dogs were removed from a home after they were discovered living in inhumane conditions, per the Flathead County Animal Shelter. The dogs reportedly suffered from various health issues including malnutrition and dehydration. Demand justice for these innocent dogs.
“They were emaciated, many were dehydrated and their fur was terribly matted because they were living in their own filth,” stated Bennet. He and his team at the Flathead County Animal Shelter rescued the dogs and will continue to care for them until the investigation is complete. Though the dogs are improving, Bennet reports that many of them are fearful of their new situation and don’t understand what is happening.
This horrific cruelty cannot go unpunished. We demand that you pursue animal cruelty charges and assign the maximum penalty by law to the person convicted of this crime.
