The Friends of Falmouth Dogs 2024 Calendar is now available for $10.00 at Uptown Dog on Route 28A in West Falmouth and Falmouth Pet Center on Route 28 near Stop & Shop. There 13 beautiful pictures of dogs adopted from the shelter over the past year or 2 printed on thick quality stock. These calendars make fun gifts for all the dog lovers in your life. Calendars are also available at the shelter, so stop by from 9 to 11am or 3 to 5 pm to purchase a copy.

Last week we featured Dolly, a reddish brown Chihuahua, that was scheduled to be surrendered to us. At the last minute Dolly’s owner decided she could not give up her sweet pup and will be looking for a new apartment instead. Dolly is happy about that!

Dog available for adoption

We do have another new dog, Jack, a Lab mix who weighs about 54 lbs. He’s all black except for a tiny white spot on his chest. Jack was a stray found in Mashpee and the vet estimates his age to be about 1 year old. Happy, playful, and energetic all describe Jack’s personality and we can picture him zooming around a yard with a bunch of kids in pursuit. While with his former family, Jack did get some training and can do a good “sit” and “stay” and maybe more that we haven’t discovered yet. This week he got all his vaccines and microchip and will be neutered in a couple of weeks. Call us at 508-548-7742 to make an appointment to see Jack.

Dog available for adoption

Betty is an adorable, 3 year old Chihuahua mix, weighing about 12 lbs. She’s white and brown with a touch of black and has been fully vaccinated, spayed and soon will be microchipped. During the week she’s been with us, we’ve seen that Betty is very playful, friendly to the other dogs at the shelter, and walks well on leash. If you’d like to meet Betty, please call 508-548-7742.

Dog available for adoption

Maggie Mae is a very sweet 7 month old terrier mix who will make your heart melt. She weighs about 29 lbs and is mostly white with tan and black patches. Maggie Mae can be a bit timid when meeting new people and encountering new situations, but she does warm up after a short time. She does play well with other dogs and loves stuffed toys. Maggie Mae has been spayed, fully vaccinated and will be microchipped very soon. Make an appointment to see Maggie Mae by calling us at 508-548-7742.

Dog available for adoption

Robin is a 3.5 year old male Miniature Pinscher, often called a Min-Pin, with the traditional black and tan coloring. At 10 lbs, you will enjoy having him on your lap in the upcoming cold weather. In addition to lap sitting, Jack loves to play with toys and with other dogs. As with all of our dogs, he is fully vaccinated, neutered and will be microchipped next week. Contact us at 508-548-7742 to schedule an appointment to meet Robin.

Come to Sunday’s Christmas Parade in Falmouth and you will be able to see all of our dogs.

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 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.
