CANDIE

Candie is a Husky mix. She is a very loving family dog. She is good with kids 4 and older, no dogs or cats. She is a great watch dog, loves to be outside and go for walks. She can be a bit shy and nervous with new people. If you're looking for a sweet family dog and watch dog, check out Candie here at the shelter


ATHENA
My name is Athena. I am about 5 years old and weigh 90 lbs. I have lived with kids 8 and older and cats. I do not like the company of other dogs. I love to play with balls, plush toys, squeaky toys, tugs and pretty much any toy I can get a hold of! I am ok inside the house, but do not like being left alone too long. I am crate trained, but prefer being close to my people when they are home. I am great with people, kids and cats but please no other dogs!

 

 
RAKOON


My nature is gentle, relaxed and curious at times. Need to be the only pet in the household, and no children. Enjoy being groomed and like being held. I will drool when being over-stimulated, and I like to talk sometimes. My lifestyle is indoor/outdoor, weather permitting. I enjoy people -- just not fond of children.


 
 
PERCY

My nature is gentle, quiet and loving. My favorite past time is being a lap cat! Need to be the only pet in the household and I have not been around children. My lifestyle is indoor only. A low activity home would be best for me. Love being around you when you are home.



MERYL
Hi, I'm Meryl! I am an active retiree! I am a low-key friendly girl. I'm looking for a home with older kids, unsure about cats or other dogs. I'd like to go places with you. I might have some white in my muzzle, but I still enjoy life. I am a chow hound, so I do need a fenced in yard since my nose gets me into trouble. I look forward to giving all my love to you as we share my golden years!
LOUIESamantha


My nature is outgoing, curious and a bit independent at times. I am friendly to visitors and I enjoy being a lap cat. Need to be the only pet in the household and my lifestyle is indoors only. Enjoy being groomed. When playing with me I can get over stimulated quickly.

THE WHITEFISH COMMUNITY FOUNDATION'S GREAT FISH COMMUNITY CHALLENGE
IS ON!!!

FLATHEAD SHELTER FRIENDS IS IN THE CHALLENGE!

OUR MISSION

Flathead Shelter Friends is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to raising funds to support the FCAS 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.

USE OF FUNDS

Funds will be used to hire a volunteer coordinator to assist animal shelter staff to recruit, train, support, manage, schedule, and develop volunteers. The coordinator will prepare materials, track statistics, and improve and expand the volunteer program, which is crucial for shelter operation.

SECONDARY USE OF FUNDS: To continue funding the $250 veterinary care voucher program for adopters of senior pets.

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 helping to save lives from High-kill shelter in Arizona!!!
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!
Many, many BIG paws up to Dog Is My CoPilot, Inc. for making the journey with these very deserving dogs who need loving families...stay tuned for pupdates! Be sure to "like" the DIMC Facebook page!
