Dog available for adoption

If you are a fan of northern breed dogs, you need to meet Bidwell, also known as “Wellie”. He’s a larger dog, around 80 lbs, with a beautiful combination of colors in his coat which is not surprising since he is a Malamute/Bernese Mountain Dog mix.

At 16 months old, Wellie still exhibits some puppy traits like exuberantly greeting new people and wanting to play a lot. He’s a great at chasing a ball and even returns it! Lounging in our kiddie pool is another favorite activity, as you can see in his picture.

Wellie is fully vaccinated, neutered, housebroken and microchipped. Although Wellie has interacted well with the other dogs in the shelter, we think he would be happiest as the only dog in a new home. If you would like to provide a loving home for Wellie, please call us at 508-548-7742.

Dog available for adoption

Come and meet Roman, our American Staffordshire Terrier mix with an elegant fawn and brindle coat. He’s 1.5 years old, neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. He weighs about 60 lbs. and so far, he is an energetic and friendly pooch. Roman loves running around and playing on our “beach” play area. He’s one of those dogs that enjoys other dogs but really wants to be with people and be loved. He thinks he can be a lap dog but he can definitely be a couch companion.

Although he did travel here from Alabama, he was not a stray and we have his medical history. Roman has had some training and will sit and to a “down” for treats and often comes when called by name which is pretty special. He is a young and strong dog that would love to have an active family to play with. If that sounds like your family, please call us at 508-548-7742 to meet him.

Dog available for adoption

Daisy is looking for someone that will play with her and love her. She’s about 8 months old, has lots of energy and is spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped. We were told that Daisy is a pit mix and she currently weighs only 37 lbs. She is all black and very friendly. A volunteer did a little bit of running with her and was surprised at how well Daisy stayed by her side during the run. Daisy came to us with some training that will provide a great foundation to build on. Those of you looking for a fun, happy dog should come and meet Daisy. Call 508-548-7742 for an appointment.

Cape Cod Doxie Day is being held on Saturday, 9/30/23, from 12:00 to 3:00pm in Barnstable Village, behind the Courthouse at 3195 Main St. It’s a fun day of games, contests, and raffles celebrating doxies, weiner wannabes, dachshund lovers and friends. That covers many of us, I bet. Vendors that cater to dogs and their families will be there as well. This year Friends of Falmouth Dogs is very fortunate to be the beneficiary of all the proceeds from the event. For more information, visit their website Hope to see many of you there.

Many people call us to ask if we can use donations of blankets, sheets, towels, and dog food. The answer is yes to all! Volunteers are at the shelter from 9 to 11 and 4 to 6 every day and can accept the donations. If we happen to be overrun with towels, for example, we will find a good home for the extras at another shelter, a vet’s office or we will recycle them properly. We greatly appreciate all the donations we receive!

Monetary donations are always needed here at the shelter. In addition to taking care of the dogs in our custody, we help low income dog owners pay for veterinary care and dog food. Our goal is that with our help, many more dogs will stay healthy — or get heathy — and live longer and happier lives. The Cape Cod Foundation provides grant funding to us for these programs and we are supremely grateful for their support. Unfortunately, the need of low income dog owners continues to exceed our grant support. If you would like to help provide medical care for the dogs in our community, donations by check (PO Box 438, Falmouth, MA 02541) or via PayPal are always welcomed.

We are still offering our Vet Assistance Program, which is 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 these programs, please call our office at 508-548-7742 and leave a message specifying what you need. Please be sure to state your name and phone number slowly and clearly.
