GLACIER COUNTY — The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) estimates that 1.5 million animals are euthanized across the country each year - but one woman in Cut Bank is trying to reduce that number.

For nearly 15 years, Leetta Gobert has made it her mission to help neglected and abused dogs find a home.

Gobert owns an in-home dog rescue named Leetta’s Rez Dog Rescue Home just outside of the Blackfeet Reservation. She helps dogs find homes and takes in abused animals and nurses them back to health.



Volunteer Holly Keller says, “Anybody’s animals are hurt or lost, or they can’t find them, somebody drops them off, everyone always calls Leetta."

Animals aren’t the only reason for Leeta’s passion for helping animals; she explained, "The rescue saved my life, doing rescue. I guess I had to look at someone worse off than me and they come to me and they are sick and have been abused."

Leetta is at full capacity right now but needs donations for food.

You can also mail donations to her at 1835 Seville Housing, Cut Bank, Montana, 59427.
