Forrest, 7 years old, male, 35-pound mix

You were probably thinking "Oh sure, Forrest is good at the shelter but how is he in a home?" Well, we were wondering the same thing, so when a foster opportunity came available for Forrest, off he went.

So, what does his foster family have to say? Exactly what we have been saying all along: Forrest is a great dog! They report that he has excellent house manners—he behaves well when they are eating, is patient when they are getting his food ready, enjoys a couple of average-length walks a day, and actually sleeps in!

They say he likes attention but is also independent (not needy). He exhibits no anxiety of any kind.

A reminder of Forrest's vital statistics: 45 pounds, mixed breed, 7 years old, personality-plus. Although he has lived with other dogs, we feel he would do best as the only pet in a household.

Still at his foster home, he will be at the shelter on Saturday from 10 AM to noon and Sunday from 3 to 5 PM and with prior arrangement can also be seen during our other open shifts.

Oscar, 14 years old, male, dachshund. Autumn, 12 years old, female, dachshund mix

Also in foster care are the delightful duo Oscar and Autumn. We are looking for one family to adopt them both as they are well bonded.

Autumn is an adorable 12-year-old dachshund mix who loves to explore, enjoys walks and cuddling. She does have some arthritis, so her walks are short, and she also takes medicine to help with her breathing.

Oscar is a 15-year-old black-and-tan dachshund. He is in great shape for an older dog. Although not a fan of the cold, once out he, too, enjoys exploring. Oscar seems to have a twinkle in his eye and his tail, with its interesting corkscrew, is always in motion.

Oscar and Autumn entered our program when their owner died. They have been well socialized and are very sweet dogs. They can be seen at the shelter on Saturday from 10 AM to noon.

Future Marketing Gurus

In this week's Enterprise is a supplement full of ads created by schoolchildren. Friends of Falmouth Dogs was fortunate to be assigned to 4th grade classes at Quashnet Elementary School in Mashpee and 2nd grade classes at Mullen-Hall Elementary School in Falmouth.

We urge you to look through the supplement for our ads created by Harlee Rohrer from Quashnet and Bella from Mullen-Hall. While only one ad from each school could go in the paper, we just had to give a shout-out to some of the others we saw and really liked.

From Quashnet: Kaelyn Gomez created a wonderful, colorful ad with stars, hearts and pawprints; Rhiannon Tokla used a life preserver in her ad (nice nautical rescue theme!); Deliyah Fortes used color well and knew to keep the message simple; and Violet Poquette used the great slogan "Rescue. Love. Repeat."

From Mullen-Hall: The younger kids clearly got it. They drew dogs with families looking at them, wanting to adopt them, and even drew our shelter. Our shout-out goes to Jenna Athamni, Max Hogan, Lucas McCarthy, David Chapman, and Kaylee Vincent.


The shelter is open to the public Monday through Saturday from 10 AM to noon, Sunday from 3 to 5 PM and also on Monday and Thursday from 4 to 6 PM.

Volunteer Opportunities

We have several shifts that could use more volunteers. If you have experience with dogs of any size and are 18 or older, please consider volunteering with us. It is very rewarding being able to help the dogs.

In addition to the hours listed above, we have shifts that are not open to the public. We invite you to visit the shelter and learn more about our program.
