Pansy, female pug/beagle mix

In addition to the two financial assistance programs that Friends of Falmouth Dogs is offering (see below for details), we are partnering with the Cape Cod Disaster Animal Response Team (CCDART) to supply food for two of its PUP UP Pet Food Pantry events in Falmouth. The first one will be held on Friday, May 1, from 4 to 6 PM at Rocky's Gym & Fitness, 610 East Falmouth Highway. A second PUP UP Pet Food Pantry event will be held on Sunday, May 3, from 1 to 3 PM at the Falmouth Service Center, 611 Gifford Street. This is a drive-through event that requires preregistration, so please visit for more details and to register.

After talking with almost a dozen very qualified applicants, a wonderful new home was found for Riley, our adorable Shih Tzu. We are all excited for him but miss taking him for walks. Congratulations to Riley's new family!

It looks like Bodie, our super sweet Lab mix, will be on his way to a new home, too. Final arrangements are in the works and he will be enjoying the good life with his new family very soon. His foster mom will be missing him, for sure.

Pansy, our older puggle, is relishing the attention of a caring foster family that dotes on her. Since she was a stray we don't know her back story or her exact age, but she is around 11 years old, weighs 23 pounds and is microchipped, spayed and up to date on all shots. In spite of less-than-perfect eyesight, she gets around very well and enjoys long walks. Pansy has been diagnosed with Cushing's disease, but appears to be improving now that she is on medication. Please call us and leave a message if you are interested in getting to know Pansy.

If you are finding it financially difficult to provide medical care or food for your dog, Friends of Falmouth Dogs would like to help by offering two programs. Our Medical Assistance for Veterinary Services program has been in existence for a while but not broadly advertised. If your dog needs to see a veterinarian for important care that should not or cannot wait—including vaccines, shots, heartworm and tick medications—but you cannot afford to pay for the visit and medications, we will help with the cost. Local veterinarians that we partner with are Deer Run Veterinary Services, South Cape Veterinary Clinic and Falmouth Animal Hospital. We can work with other veterinarians that are willing to bill Friends of Falmouth Dogs or accept our credit card payment over the phone for the services they provide to your dog.

The second program we are offering is Food for Your Dog. If paying for your dog's food has become almost impossible, FFD will provide a voucher for up to $60 worth of dry or canned dog food. Currently these vouchers will be 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, Monday through Friday, and leave a message specifying what you need. Please be sure to slowly and clearly state your name and phone number. FFD volunteers will be checking messages around noon and 4 PM each weekday and will return calls to collect needed information and process your request.

When we reopen, you can visit Friends of Falmouth Dogs Wednesday through Saturday from 10 AM to noon, and Wednesday through Friday and Sunday from 4 to 6 PM.
