As expected, we had a slew of calls about our 2 Yorkies, Romeo and Nicholas, and are not taking any more calls to meet them. If all goes well, they should be adopted by the weekend. Oscarletta, the black and white lab/terrier mix that has been with us for a few weeks has received several excellent adoption applications so she will be in a new home very soon. Chewy, our 8 year old beagle mix is also likely to have a new home within a few days. It has been busy at the shelter!

Dog available for adoption

There are 2 11 year old Chihuahuas at the shelter, sisters ChiChi and Lalah. Both are less than 10 lbs, are spayed, vaccinated and are microchipped. ChiChi is a bit smaller than her sister and has short, mostly white hair.

Dog available for adoption

Lalah has longer, wiry hair that is white with some swirls of brown. They enjoy playing with toys, walking and being carried around by volunteers. We are hoping to have them adopted together since they have been together forever. Come and meet them by calling us at 508-548-7742 for an appointment.

Dog available for adoption

Kayla is a very sweet 16 month old, purebred Germans Shepherd Dog who was surrendered to us recently by an elderly couple with health issues. She did live with another dog but new dogs scare her. The owners did not know how she would be with cats or children.

Kayla enjoys meeting new people, loves to swim and play with her squeaky toys. She is not a large shepherd, weighing only about 55 lbs, but may still grow a bit. In her prior home, Kayla learned to walk on a leash and do a good “sit” and “down”. At the moment, she is not spayed but will be soon. Call us at 508-548-7742 to meet Kayla.

Another recent addition to our list of available dogs is Panda, a 7 month old, male Husky mix. Unfortunately, we don’t have a good picture of him yet. He has a beautiful, fluffy, multi-color coat that will benefit from regular brushing.

Panda is an active, fun dog that loves to run around and play. Since he is only 7 months old, volunteers are working with him to develop more self-control and not jump up on people. Surprisingly, Panda walks well on leash and does not pull excessively. He will be neutered and microchipped soon. If you’d like to meet Panda, call 508-548-7742 for an appointment.

Dog available for adoption

Marisol is a medium-small 10 year old yellow lab mix that needs a new home. Her owner died recently so we are assisting the family by doing an owner to owner adoption where we coordinate the adoption process while Marisol stays with a family member. Meeting new people is scary for her so patience is needed until she warms up to a new person. Meeting new dogs is not a problem and she enjoys playing with other dogs. Marisol is spayed and vaccinated. Meet Marisol by calling 508-548-7742 to schedule a meet and greet.

Monetary donations are always needed here at the shelter so we can continue caring for the dogs in our custody and 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 and we are supremely grateful for their support. Unfortunately, our costs 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.

Friends of Falmouth Dogs holds state license #0183.
