The Friends of Falmouth Dogs Alumni Calendar for 2021 is now available at Uptown Dog in West Falmouth on Route 28A and at Falmouth Pet Center on Route 28 near Stop & Shop for the bargain price of $10. The photos of our dogs, taken by our own photographer extraordinaire, David Williamson, will bring a smile to your face all year long. Nala, Bodie, Louie and Patsy are just a few of the dogs featured. The holidays are not too far away, so be sure to buy one for yourself and one as a gift for a dog-loving friend!

Do you know someone facing eviction or an unexpected hospital stay who has a dog that needs a short-term foster home? We may be able to help by finding a temporary home through our network of foster families. Call the shelter at 508-548-7742 and leave us a message and someone will get back to you.

You may remember reading a couple of weeks ago that FFD was going to help rehome a 12-year-old Cairn Terrier who was diagnosed with diabetes. Thank you to those who called, interested in helping out. Fortunately, the family decided that they could not give her up and recommitted to overcoming the challenges in keeping their dog healthy.

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. 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.

We are also offering a second program during the pandemic that we call Food for Your Dog. If paying for your dog's food has become a real challenge, FFD will provide a voucher for up to $60 worth of dry or canned dog food. These vouchers will be redeemable at Uptown Dog or at Falmouth Pet Center.

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 each weekday and will return your call to collect needed information and process your request.

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