Last Saturday, Falmouth residents enjoyed a parade of dogs of all shapes and sizes. The Great Bay Dog Show returned with more furry friends and overall fun! The show had a great turnout and raised $351 in donations to benefit Friends of Falmouth Dogs. Thank you to everyone who participated or came to watch.
Our Australian shepherd, Ellie, has officially been adopted! A recent visit by some volunteers from the shelter found Ellie happily in her new home with her owners, a puppy and two horses.
Veronica, the beagle/basset hound mix who is being fostered at the moment, is on the look out for her forever home. Veronica is a charming girl who would love to live in a quiet home. She is a low-energy dog who enjoys leisurely walks with her owners.
If Veronica seems like the perfect dog for your household, give us a call at 508-548-7742 to set up an appointment to meet with this sweet girl.
We do have a new dog in residence at the shelter. Flash, a middle-aged beagle, arrived a few days ago. We have discovered that Flash is very friendly but we will learn more about his personality in the days to come.
Our 3rd Annual Antique Appraisal at Atria Woodbriar Place will take place on Saturday, September 17, from 1 to 3 PM. This popular event benefits the Friends of Falmouth Dogs' Medical Fund. Details of the appraisal are still being cemented but you can call or e-mail the shelter for more information as the event draws near.
We are in need of small plastic bags as the recent banning of plastic bags in many grocery stores in Falmouth is leaving our supply of waste bags depleted. Feel free to drop any excess plastic bags you may have at the shelter at any time. If we are not open at the time of your donation, please feel free to leave the bags at the front door.
Also, given this new policy on plastic bags, many grocery stores encourage shoppers to use reusable bags. We would like to remind you that Friends of Falmouth Dogs have reusable tote bags for a $5 donation. Our totes are very sturdy, with a reinforced bottom. They come insulated with a zippered top, perfect for any frozen/cold items.
The shelter is open from 10 AM to noon Monday to Saturday, 4 to 6 PM on Monday and Thursday, and from 3 to 5 PM on Sunday.
Get outside in these last few weeks of August and enjoy the weekend.
