As a volunteer for the Flathead County Animal Shelter I am encouraging those who are interested in bringing a new pet into their home to please consider adopting a homeless cat or dog from the local shelter.
As described in recent articles, the shelter is currently in crisis amode due to the overabundance of homeless dogs and cats. Many of these homeless pets are already house-trained/litter box trained, know basic obedience, have been around other pets or children and understand how to be a member of the family. All animals adopted from the Shelter have been spayed/neutered, microchipped and vaccinated.
To help promote finding forever homes for these pets, the shelter is currently offering a 50 percent reduced adoption fee for all black colored pets and senior pets. The Shelter is located at 225 Cemetery Road, south of Kalispell, and it's open Tuesday through Friday, noon to 6 p.m., and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The shelter's phone number is 752-1310 and website is www.flathead.mt.gov/animal.
