BELLA
ADOPT ME PLEASE!!!
My name is Bella. I am on the larger side, weighing about 80 pounds .I am a smart, happy, mellow girl with excellent manners. I would do best as the only pet, as I am not fond of sharing my peeps with cats or other dogs. Older, calm kids would be fine. I walk nice on leash and am ok riding in the car. Let me be the Bella of your ball!
PENNY
My name is Penny. I am a 7 year old Rottie mix, weighing 70 pounds. I can be shy with people I don't know, so time and patience is requested. I seem ok with male dogs, and suggest a meet and greet. No canine gal friends or cats for me. Older kids would be best. My new home should have people with previous experience living with my type of dog. PS- without guidance, I might come up with rules you may not appreciate. Did I mention I love, love, love the green balls with feet on them!
 

 
COPO


I am a sweet gal and I do like to talk to you at times. Enjoy being held. Ride well in the car and have no problem with being in a large kennel for short times(traveling) Children are fine and I have lived with other cats and small to medium size dogs. I enjoy being inside during the cold months but enjoy going out in the summer and fall. Love playing with mouse toys. COPO's adoption comes with a $250.00 vet certificate
 
HOLEY MOLEY 

Hi 
I was named"Holey Moley" as I came to the shelter with quite a few abscess's which have now cleared up! Friendly to visitors and enjoy being petted but not really into being held . So saying that I am NOT a lap cat. Not sure about other cats or dogs. Children over the age of 12 are fine. My lifestyle is indoor/outdoor with weather permitting.

BUDDY
Meet Buddy, he is a hound mix weighing 52 pounds. Buddy is a talker and an active boy. He likes to play outside; he also can be a little shy with people he doesn't know. Buddy seems to do okay with other dogs a meet and greet is suggested. Probably no cats and older kids would be best. If you looking for a great hiking dog or possibly hunting dog Buddy might just be the one for you.

MINGLEE

My nature is quiet, gentle and friendly to visitors once I get to know them. Not sure about other cats or dogs. Enjoy being brushed and I will need help with my hair from time to time. Also I do not mind my nails being trimmed when needed. Children over the age of 10 are fine. My lifestyle is indoor/outdoor with weather permitting. Would do well in a medium to low activity home.




Flathead Shelter Friends, Inc.

A 501(c)(3) Non Profit

 

Flathead Shelter Friends is nonprofit all-volunteer organization
dedicated to raising funds to support the
Flathead County Animal Shelter in its efforts to find loving homes
for EVERY adoptable dog and cat.
Our mission is to increase pet adoption,
to improve the quality of life for shelter animals
and to promote responsible pet ownership
through our fundraising efforts.
2018 is a great year to adopt a Senior!
Flathead County Animal Shelter will provide $250 Veterinary Care Vouchers to adopters of Senior Pets!
GREAT REASONS TO ADOPT A SENIOR PET:

  •  What you see is what you get! Seniors are full grown and have developed personalities.  You will be able to know if the pet will fit in your home, with your family and your environment!
  • Seniors have manners.  Most are house/litter box trained and know basic manners.  Their history prior to adoption is often known by the shelters.
  • Adaptability. Seniors’ experiences will shape how quickly they adapt to their new home, human family and routines.  The GREAT NEWS  is that senior pets can adapt when given love, time and positive training
  •  You CAN find the purebred pet you want, AND you can find a pet that you KNOW has lived with and gets along well with small children, other dogs, cats, chickens and farm animals.
  • Older pets are wise; they DO know that you are giving them a brand new, well-deserved lease on life! Many new owners form a close bond very quickly with their senior dog or cat, because the pet shows them a level of attention and devotion that is unique to older adopted animals.
  •  Older pets are less demanding and are relaxing to be with!  They are happy to be quieter companions, to humans of all ages.  They are much less likely to knock over a small child or elderly person than a boisterous puppy!
  •  Pets give children a good sense of responsibility, and they CAN help with their new BFF!!
  •  Timeframe.  It may be scary to adopt, knowing that your new best friend may not live more than ten years.  However, some pets who enter families as puppies or kittens live long after their “kids” have gone to college or new jobs in new states.

FCAS is
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!
