FCAS and FSF…partnering together to save lives.


Driving dog

Flathead Shelter Friends most recent endeavor is kicking off fundraising to be able to purchase a newer, cargo type van for transporting FCAS animals to offsite events, adoption days, veterinary appointments and other rescue groups/adopters throughout our state and beyond.  FCAS and FSF are proud partners of numerous rescue groups and shelters throughout the Flathead Valley, Canada and our neighboring states.  A mode of transportation that would be able to haul several animals at once will be life saving for many, many homeless pets!  Please consider donating to this much needed project…Go Dog Go!

It is with great pride that we honor all of our wonderful volunteers at FCAS.  McGarry’s Roadhouse restaurant owners, Steve and Sandy Nogal, put on a fabulous appreciation dinner in January for Flathead Shelter Friends and Flathead County Animal Advisory Committee Board members.  At this wonderful event, we were able to honor three very important Volunteers of the Year for 2014, nominated by FCAS Staff members.  Volunteers of the Year are Anita Scott, for her everlasting dedication to our shelter dogs, Esther Bjorkland, for her office duties extraordinaire, and Kay Saari for her love and patience in helping with our feline friends.  We are so honored to call you friends, and thank you from the bottom of our paws for your undying devotion to our shelter and our pets!  We would all be lost without the help of our wonderful volunteers, and want all of them to know how very appreciative we are for their kindness…thank you!

We have lots of great cats and dogs at the shelter to choose from…

Come check them all out and see if you might find a special friend to adopt and take home  for furrever!  The population changes daily.  All adoptable and stray pets are listed on the FCAS website www.flathead.mt.gov/animal.

If you have lost a pet, please call the shelter at 406-752-1310, and physically COME IN to see if your loved one is in the shelter.  chipping, & ID tags always help return pets to owners faster.

Volunteers are always needed for a variety of help with the animals, in the office and at offsite events.  New volunteer orientations are held the first Saturday of every month, from 1-2 at FCAS.  Call Niki at FCAS for more information on volunteering at FCAS, 752-1310.

The Fist Annual Flathead Shelter Friends Valentine’s Kissing Booth was a tremendous success!!! Hosted at Murdoch’s Ranch & Home Supply in Kalispell, FSF offered $5 Polaroid pictures with your pet (or your sweetie) and option to order online digital photos as well.  Over 40 families enjoyed the booth, and had a sweet “smooching” time!  Thank you so much to all the volunteers who walked shelter dogs at the booth, and to all of the families who came out to support our shelter! Watch for the Kissing Booth to be available at the upcoming Easter Egg hunt in April!
