Justice for 37 Dogs Allegedly Starved and Neglected

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.

  1. A cancer curse on this bastard. Punishment must fit the crime.

  2. Dear Mr. Ed Corrigan, County Attorney for Flathead County, Montana
    I Definitely Demand that you seek the maximum penalty for the person who allegedly neglected 37 dogs, resulting in the death of one.
    I can’t believe that you haven’t arrested him/her or both as yet.
    You must realize Montana has the reputation of being a state that treats their animals without feeling or any kind of responsibility for their animals.
    But here is your chance to change that image that so many people hold. Please see to it immediately that the abuser(s) are swiftly dealt with and that they are given the harshest fines and prison time, with the Stipulation that they are never allowed to own or work with or near ANY ANIMAL ever again. And, you should make reference to the fact someone knew these animals where being abused long before the abuser was finally brought to light. And that person(s) should have spoken up as soon as they suspected the animals were not cared for humanely. First having 37 dogs inside a home isn’t feasible for the richest person, muchless the average joe. That should have been anyone’s first clue that the dogs needed an intervention. The person obviously has some mental issues, so they need some kind of counseling. But this person will never be well enough to be allowed to own an animal. Next time he will be there to get revenge. So please see to it that animal abusers are not let off with only a slap on the wrist. Millions of animals lovers are watching.
    Good Luck and Love to all the animals in the state of Montana.
