Since the Town of Falmouth has closed its municipal buildings, the refuge is also closed to the public. Fortunately, no one called to return their dog, and the stray dogs that were brought to the shelter by animal control officers have all been reunited with their owners. While the city may allow the shelter to reopen in the near future, the Friends of Falmouth Dogs board has decided that for the next several months we will only open if we have dogs available for adoption. This will limit the possible exposure of our volunteers and visitors to the COVID-19 virus. Once we are cleared to be open,, our Facebook page and phone message will let you know if we have any dogs available.

Are you looking for a fun volunteer job where you can count on a lot of love and licking? Friends of Falmouth Dogs might be the place for you. We have a great group of volunteers who can’t wait to take care of the dogs again, but there will be a few who cannot return to their shifts. Volunteers must commit to a regular two hour shift each week and will be orientated and trained in dog handling. Volunteer activities include feeding, walking and playing with the dogs, as well as helping to clean the kennels and do the laundry for the dogs. If you want to know more, drop us a line at 508-548-7742, and someone will get back to you within a day or two.

If your dog needs to see a veterinarian for care, including vaccines, injections, heartworms, and tick medication, but you are having financial hardship, give us a call. We can help you pay the costs through our veterinary medical assistance program. Our local partners are Deer Run Veterinary Services, South Cape Veterinary Clinic and Falmouth Animal Hospital. We may work with other vets who are willing to bill Friends of Falmouth Dogs or accept our credit card payment over the phone for their services.

The second program we are offering during the pandemic is Food for Your Dog. If paying for your dog’s food has become a real challenge, we’ll provide you with a voucher for up to $ 60 worth of dry or canned dog food. These vouchers will be redeemable at Uptown Dog on Route 28A in West Falmouth or at the Falmouth Pet Center on Route 28 near Stop & Shop.

To participate in one or both programs, please call our office at 508-548-7742, Monday through Friday, and leave a message outlining what you need. Make sure to state your name and phone number slowly and clearly. The volunteers will check the messages every day of the week and call you back to gather the necessary information and process your request.

When we reopen and if we have dogs for adoption, you can visit Friends of Falmouth Dogs from Wednesday to Friday 10:00 am to noon and 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm, Saturday 10:00 am to noon and Sunday from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
