MENTOR, OH (WOIO) - The Lake County Humane Society wants to bring awareness to animal cruelty and neglect and they are using the story of a shih tzu to do just that.

At four-months-old, Monte fell victim to senseless abuse.

Luckily, the Humane Society was made aware of Monte's conditions and immediately took action. He is now safe in their care.

The Humane Society wants you to share Monte's story and other puppies like him.
