BELLA

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!
RILEY

My name is Riley. I am about 7 years old and weigh 66 pounds. I'm a very sweet, lovable, fun loving dog. I have lived with other dogs and cats. Kids would be fun, but for walks I need someone that can handle my size and strength. I am looking for a home with a warm bed, the occasional walk around the park and perhaps a swim in the lake. I love to be inside more so than outside, I also need to have a yard with a tall secure fence, as I like to explore things and will jump a 5 foot fence. A line runner or chain will NOT work as I just break them off.

I am a big guy but I am gentle , friendly to visitors and love to talk to you at times. I have lived with a small dog and other cats. But do not care for big medium to big dogs. Enjoy being held . My lifestyle is indoor/outdoor and I love to mouse and I'm good at it besides!! Children are fine.
 
SWEETIE 
My nature is quiet and a bit independent at times. I enjoy being held and groomed. Love to mouse!! I have been around other cats but not dogs or children. My lifestyle is indoor/outdoor with weather permitting.

AL

Hello I'm Al. One other thing I should probably tell you: I make my feelings known frequently and loudly too! I am a very happy boy I like other dogs probably no cats and older kids are good with me. I just love life so much I have to tell you about it! For this reason, I wouldn't be good in an apartment or a home with close neighbors. I really enjoy going for walks, and I love a kong with treats in them, one other thing is I love to be around people
BABY. *SUPERSENIOR*


I would consider myself independent and quiet. Personally, my favorite activities are eating and sleeping, how else would I keep my beautiful figure. Kids 10 and older are fine by me; I lived with other cats, but never dogs. Inside is preferred, but I can go outside when weather permits. When I find my home, you can count on me to be your perfect lazy cat.



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.
NOVEMBER IS ADOPT-A-SENIOR-PET MONTH!
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!
