LITTLE ONE

I am an older guy who has lived with other dogs, caged birds and bunnies. Not sure about cats. At my age, I am not fond of children. Having lived with other dogs, I might now prefer older, calmer dogs. I can be timid at first, so give me a chance to warm up to you. I would love to spend my retired years lounging on a couch or in the warm sun, though an occasional leash walk would be nice too!

As a senior, I come with a $250 Vet Care Voucher!

HAWKIN
Meet Hawkin, a 10-month-old Lab. He is a sweet boy with lots of energy. He has never been around cats, is okay with other dogs, and has never been around kids so older kids would be best. Hawkin loves to run and chase wildlife so a fenced yard would be good for him. He does need obedience training and crate training, as he likes to get into stuff when left alone. If you're looking for a fun active young dog to go running, camping, or fishing with, Hawkin just might be the boy for you.

 

 
Gremlin

My nature is relaxed, gentle, and friendly to visitors. Need to be the only pet in the household. Children are fine. My lifestyle is indoor only due to me being declawed in the front. Love wrapping my front legs around your neck and give you affection!! Would do best in a low activity home.  I will come home with a $250 vet care voucher!!


 
 
Diego

My nature is gentle, quiet and a bit on the shy side until I get to know you. I get along with another cat if the cat is relaxed and not real young! Not sure about dogs. Children are fine over the age of 8. My lifestyle is indoor/outdoor with weather permitting.



NORA
Nora weighs 35 pounds, and is a great, compact size. She is clean in her kennel and quiet. Not sure how she is with other dogs or cats. Older kids would be a better match. She seems a bit timid until she gets to know you, and then quickly becomes your new bestie!
As a senior, Nora comes with a $250 Vet Care voucher.

Samantha


I am quiet, gentle, and a little shy. I have lived with cats, medium-sized dogs, and young children, but I might enjoy a less hectic home. My lifestyle is indoor/outdoor, with weather permitting, and I am litter box trained.

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!
