Look into his eyes. You will see his terror. And if you don’t see it in his eyes, you can be sure that terror is in the eyes of the volunteers who have grown to love Montana.
Montana was found wearing a red collar around his neck. He looked like he has been well cared for. At some point, someone loved him enough to get him a jaunty collar. What happened? Did it cost too much to feed Montana? Were they unwilling to spend time with him? Did they decide to move and it was too much bother to take a dog with them?
Montana’s eyes look terrified and he has every reason to be frightened. He’s in Cleveland Animal Control, a high-kill municipal pound in Bradley County, Tennessee. He has been there for over a month, and they won’t be keeping him alive much longer. Montana is only two years old, and he’s listed as a bird dog mix.
Montana is a handsome guy. He has distinctive markings that are russet and white, and his huge, attentive eyes are the color of milk chocolate. He was found as a stray and now finds himself on death row.
Important information about Montana is that he is ID#18 and in Kennel 8. There are no pull fees for approved rescues. For individuals, the adoption fee is $50 which includes his neuter, vaccinations and other medical treatment.
