Gidge Will be Missed in Missoula

Gidge was a fine pet commissioner for Missoula and as an advocate for some very important pet causes, like leashing dogs in areas where it is required, getting pets registered with Animal Control and more.

Missoula's Pet Commissioner Position is Open to All Kinds of Pets

There is nothing that says the next pet commissioner has to be a dog. If you have that feline friend who knows how to run a household and can take that attitude to the city, then they should be in the election. How about an iguana that knows how to get things done? What about a ferret that has the attitude to deal with Missoula and politics? Maybe a sheep or a chicken would make a good pet commissioner for Missoula. Everyone is invited to throw their collar, scales, tails, feathers or fur into the race.
