Tete, our white and beige terrier mix, was adopted last week and Bandit our adorable Pom/Cavelier Spaniel mix, has many adoption applications and is very close to being adopted. Edgar, our Mountain Cur mix, is expected to be adopted this week. Thank you to all the people that came in to meet these great dogs.

Dog available for adoption

One of the newest dogs at the shelter is Xander, a tan, 8 month old Corgi mix (or a Basset/Lab mix, maybe). He recently arrived from the US Virgin Islands and has been staying with us as a courtesy to the group that actually rescued him. Xander (pronounced “Zander”) is a very playful puppy and has had a great time interacting with our other dogs. He weighs about 25 lbs and may grow a bit more. If you’d like to meet him, please call us at 508-548-7742.

Dog available for adoption

Bonnie is another new dog that is available for adoption. She is a local surrender whose owner moved to assisted living. She weighs about 40 lbs, is 8 years old and is black and tan. Bonnie is thought to be an Australian Kelpie who were originally bred from Collies to manage herds of sheep. Fortunately, Bonnie does not need a herd of sheep to be happy. She has been spayed and will be up to date on vaccines very soon. Call us at 508-548-7742 to meet Bonnie. Dog available for adoption

Come and meet Benny, a sweet, playful terrier mix from Texas. He’s brown and white, weighs about 24 lbs, and is getting along very nicely with our other dogs. We don’t know how he would interact with cats or children. So far, Benny is a pretty calm dog and since he’s about 1.5 years old, he won’t be getting any larger. He is vaccinated, neutered and microchipped. Please call us at 508-548-7742 for an appointment.

Dog available for adoption

Lily, our 9 year old Lhasa Apso, is getting pretty comfortable with our volunteers and meeting new people. She enjoys walking and playing with some of our dogs. Her previous owner reported that she is indifferent to cats and children. During the recent snowstorm, Lily stayed with a volunteer who reported that she loved sitting on the volunteer’s lap and was fine with her cat. Due to the condition of “dry eye” she requires multiple eye drops every day which are a challenge to administer until you fully gain her trust. She also has some allergy issues that cause itchy skin, currently managed by medication and medicated baths. Lily is looking for a patient owner committed to establishing a strong bond with her. She is fully vaccinated and spayed. Come and meet Lily by calling 508-548-7742 for an appointment.

Within the next couple of weeks, we expect some new dogs to arrive from the south. We will report on them as soon as plans are confirmed.

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 or via PayPal are always welcomed.

We are 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.

Friends of Falmouth Dogs holds state license #0183.
