Willow and Luke are two hound mix pups available for adoption at Rez Dog Rescue of Montana, a shelter that helps find new homes for puppies and dogs from American Indian reservations. Often, the dogs are from unwanted litters. Many times, abandoned dogs are mangy, underweight and have other health issues. The rescued dogs are placed in foster homes, where they are loved and can learn socialization and some training, while Rez Dog Rescue of Montana provides food and medical attention until the dogs are adoptable.

Willow, Luke and their four other littermates are sweet, playful and full of love and potential. They are spayed or neutered, wormed twice and have received kennel-cough vaccinations and first puppy shots. Second shots will be sent home with adoptive families. Cost is $150 per puppy; a home with a fenced yard is required to adopt one of these little bundles of fun.

About 35 other dogs are also awaiting homes.

Willow, Luke, their littermates and 10 other puppies will be at Tractor Supply in Laurel from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday-Sunday, May 31-June 1. For information about the event, email Sheri at mutt_lee@hotmail.com or Bernie at bernie@onemixedbag.com.

The organization needs donations of newspaper (remove glossy ads), blankets, file folders with pockets, stuffed animals without beans and bags of all kinds to fill with puppy adoption items. Take donations to Rez Dog Rescue of Montana’s adoption events, The Rubber Stamp Shop or The Dog Spot.
