Lola, female, Chihuahua mix

Do you remember the song "Whatever Lola Wants (Lola Gets)" from the musical "Damn Yankees"? I think of it every time I see our newest dog, Lola, a 10-year-old Chihuahua mix. What Lola wants is a new home with someone who will provide lots of attention, cuddles and love.

Lola came to us from an older woman who could no longer give Lola the care she deserved due to health issues. She has adjusted well to her current foster home and has tolerated—maybe even enjoyed—living with a large dog and a cat. We don't know what experiences she has had with children. Lola does have mitral valve disease and takes medication to improve her heart's functioning. Watching her out walking energetically you would never know she had anything amiss.

If you would like to meet Lola, please call the shelter at 508-548-7742 and leave us a message.

Keeping your dog safe and healthy is important. If your dog needs to see a veterinarian for care, including vaccines, shots, heartworm and tick medications, but you are experiencing financial difficulties, call us. We can help pay the cost through our medical assistance for veterinary care program. Our partners are Deer Run Veterinary Services, South Cape Veterinary Clinic and Falmouth Animal Hospital. We can work with other veterinarians who are willing to bill Friends of Falmouth Dogs or accept our credit card payment over the phone for their services.

The second program we are offering during the pandemic is Food for Your Dog. If paying for your dog's food has become a real challenge, we will provide a voucher for up to $60 worth of dry or canned dog food. 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 state your name and phone number slowly and clearly. Volunteers will be checking messages each weekday and will return your call to collect needed information and process your request.

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