Summer is finally here...I think. Regardless of the weather, there is definitely one thing you will see even more of in the next few days.

DOGS, DOGS, AND MORE DOGS!

As you make your way through our beautiful state, you will quickly realize that Montana LOVES dogs (and cats too, you just don't see a lot of people walking them).

The Flathead County Animal Shelter is FULL and need your help finding these furbabies a new home.

We're getting a lot of owner-surrenders where people are unable to, you know, keep their pets even if they would like to because they're having a hard time finding rental units that are, you know, their leases expire and they're looking for new places to live and they're having a hard time trying to find any that allow pets, let alone any that are somewhat affordable for them- Austin Hicks, Flathead Animal Shelter division manager

I mean, just look at these faces! How can anyone say no to these sweet pups? I get the rental situation, it is hard; if you do find a place that allows pets, the price for fees/deposits is a bit ridiculous.
