An Invitation

We know that some of you have preconceived ideas about the Friends of Falmouth Dogs shelter. Maybe some of those ideas have kept you from volunteering (or fostering or adopting). We have a suggestion.

Come visit us soon.

As of the publication deadline, we have no dogs at the shelter and perhaps you will find it easier to visit us at this time. We think you will be pleasantly surprised by what you see.

You'll see the kennels and the multiple play yards and can ask us questions about our organizations, what volunteers do, and how our adoption process works.

Check out our open hours below and make plans to stop by. We'll be happy to meet you.

Molly, shih tzu

Here's a hint on the conditions at the shelter—it is also very nice to stop by when we do have dogs there.

Oh, in case you were wondering, not having dogs in January frequently happens. We are sure our census will change soon, so keep reading this column, checking our website or calling us.

Latest Adoption!

Molly, the 9-year-old shih tzu, was adopted last weekend and already her new family is calling her "the best dog ever!" That is what it is all about.

Volunteering Opportunities

While some people do not volunteer at the shelter because they fear it will be very grim, others feel every dog would break their hearts. There are also some who are not physically able to walk dogs anymore.

In case you didn't know, we do have some opportunities to help that do not involve being at the shelter. Pictured in this week's column are two of our volunteers, Chip Bourget and Sue Richardson, who man the Friends of Falmouth Dogs table at Petco once a month. They represent us well: answering questions, talking about the available dogs, and accepting donations. They mentioned they really love it when people who have adopted from us stop by and tell them all about their FFD alumni dogs.

Shifts In Need Of Volunteers

We are always interested in volunteers who have experience with dogs of all sizes. If you are 18 or older and are interested in volunteering, we invite you to visit the shelter and learn more about our program.

We are especially looking for people who can commit to one or more of the following shifts: Tuesday from 4 to 5 PM, Thursday from 3 to 5 PM, Friday from 4 to 5 PM and Monday from 10 AM to noon.


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 3 to 5 PM.
