TEAM OF THE WEEK


Montana TibbettsMeet Montana, rescued from Montana's Large Animal Sanctuary by his handler Andrea Tibbetts of Hyde Park, New York. After 1 1/2 years of focused nutrition and handling, he has become a trusted and valued 4-H animal for community service work. Because of his docile and trusting manner, Montana and Andrea easily passed the Pet Partners evaluation in June 2013. Montana the llama has become known throughout Dutchess County due to his many community service hours, frequenting children's therapeutic and foster homes. He maintains his summer visits with local inner-city day care facilities and helps educate children about camelids. Montana is an amazing example of animals given a second chance in life and how they give back to others.


PET PARTNERS MAKES CBS DEBUT
