This precious senior girl is Tassie. She knows how to be a WONDERFUL COMPANION to her people and, of course, is beyond the annoying antics of puppies and young dogs. Tassie enjoys playing outside with balls, squeaky toys and tug toys. No senior pet deserves to be without their forever home, so please go meet Tassie at the Flathead County Animal Shelter and let yourself fall in love with this sweet girl.

My name is Banjo. I am about 9 years old and weigh 90 pounds. I do not act like a senior dog. I love kids but might be too large for the little ones. I am ok with most other dogs, but cats and squirrels are on my chase list. I am well behaved, crate trained, love to chew up squeaky toys, and chase a ball now and then. I should not be around farm animals. I am old enough to know good doggie manners (sit, shake, down), but young enough to play and go on walks. If not contained, I tend to get bored and wander off. Want to add a Banjo to your band?

I am a sweet gentle and loving little gal! Not sure how I would do with other cats or dogs. Children are fine over the age of 6. It is okay for me to be outside occasionally with weather permitting. Enjoy being held and petted once I get acquainted with you.
My nature is friendly, gentle and relaxed. Enjoy being held and love being a lap cat on my terms. I have been around other cats and dogs that are use to cats. Children are fine. As to my lifestyle I enjoy being outside with weather permitting. Most importantly, interacting with you is what I love the best!!!

Meet Jazabelle she is a senior girl weighing 41 pounds. Jazabelle is good with kids, okay with cats, no chickens, and good with other dogs. She does have separation anxiety when left alone for any period of time. Jazabelle is very athletic, great watch dog, and needs a lot of exercise so an active home would be best for her.
My nature is friendly to visitors and I do like to talk to you at times. Enjoy being a lap cat. I have lived with another cat but not dogs. Children are okay over the age of 7. I was not allowed on the furniture. My lifestyle is indoor/outdoor with weather permitting.
My nature is quiet, friendly to visitors and enjoy being independent at times. I have lived with large dogs and I will tolerate them if they have been around cats before. The company of women I enjoy more than men. Would do well in a household as the only pet with no children or children that are 16 and older. I was allowed on the furniture and love laying on top of the sofa over your head. My favorite sport is playing with toy mice with cat nip in them. The lifestyle that I have only known is indoors.

FCAS is helping to save lives from High-kill shelter in Arizona!!!
anticipating a transfer of 12 dogs this weekend from a high kill shelter in Arizona. As many of you know, FCAS has had very low numbers of homeless pets as of late, and we have been working to transfer some pets in to help save lives. These dogs are coming from a shelter with over 350 pets listed on their website. There is GREAT NEED to help, and we are happy to get them up north!
