Dogs available for adoption

Coco received an outpouring of attention last week and has several wonderful adopters lining up for her. Thank you to everyone that came to see her.

Every new group of dogs we rescue from the south seems to be more adorable than the previous group. Hard to believe, but true! Gizmo is a 25lb terrier mix with wiry white and tan fur who is about 18 months old. Lil, Phil and Tommy are all Blue Heeler mixes from the same litter. They are about 4.5 months old.

Dogs available for adoption

Lil, the only female in this group, weighs about 15 lbs and is a soft tan color. Phil is black and white and weighs closer to 20 lbs. Tommy is labeled gray in his vet paperwork, with lots of white fur speckled with black. He weighs about 20 lbs.

These pups are super playful and are getting practice walking on a leash. They are fully vaccinated and will be microchipped and spay/neutered soon. If you would like to have your name put on the list to meet them, please call us at 508-548-7742.

Dog available for adoption

Some of you may remember Apollo, a sweet Lab mix who was with us several weeks ago. Unfortunately, his adoptive family experienced a health crisis that made it impossible for them to care for Apollo, so he is staying with us again. Heís around 3 years old, friendly to dogs and people, and came to us originally due to the death of his owner. Apollo is really hoping to find a family that can give him lots of love and long walks. Call us at 508-548-7742 to meet Apollo.

Dog available for adoption

Rusty Red is a friendly, kind dog that gets along well with other dogs and children. As you can guess from his name, Rusty has a beautiful reddish-blond coat. He is 6 years old and looks like a lab/terrier mix. Heís healthy and strong, weighing 86 lbs. Out on walks heís very cooperative and walks calmly, unless a car or truck passes by. This frightens Rusty so we are working on desensitizing him to moving vehicles and counterconditioning him. Otherwise, heís a pretty mellow dog. If you would like to meet him, please call us at 508-548-7742.

Dog available for adoption

Cedric needs a new home! FFD is helping a family rehome him. Heís a sleek, tan, 5 year old Staffy mix. He loves people, especially the familyís 2 year old daughter, and is super affectionate. Walking, riding in cars, playing with a ball and eating are some of Cedricís favorite activities.

He would love to be part of an active family that can give him lots of exercise and where he can be the only pet since he is not a fan of other dogs. If you are interested in meeting Cedric, please call the shelter at 508-548-7742.

Dog available for adoption

Our wonderful Bruno is patiently waiting for the family thatís going to love and adopt him. Bruno knows that all the volunteers at FFD love him but he knows there is more love out there waiting for him. Bruno is a very sweet, 8 year old dog German Shepherd that enjoys belly rubs, being brushed, playing with balls and being with his people.

As with many GSDs, itís best for him to be the only pet and he really needs a fenced in yard. Bruno has been neutered, microchipped and is fully vaccinated. Call us at 508-548-7742 to meet Bruno.

We are still offering our Vet Assistance Program, designed to help ensure your dog is able to see a veterinarian for care when needed, as well as our $60 Food Voucher Program. The food vouchers are redeemable at Uptown Dog on Route 28A in West Falmouth or at Falmouth Pet Center on Route 28 near Stop & Shop. To participate in either or both programs, please call our office at 508-548-7742 and leave a message specifying what you need. Please be sure to slowly and clearly state your name and phone number.
