Meet Your ‘New Best Friend’

By Beacon Staff

The Flathead County Animal Shelter is facing some familiar problems: lots of animals, not much staff and not nearly enough money. But a new nonprofit organization and growing foster care program are helping. And this weekend the shelter is having an open house with adoption specials for its animals, many of which have been left given economic troubles.

Darrell, a basset hound mix, was Myers and Lido’s favorite canine friend when they recently reported this story.

Flathead County Animal Shelter Open House
When: Saturday, May 30; 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Where: 225 Cemetery Road (South of Kalispell on Highway 93. Turn west at “Four Corners.”)

There will be adoption specials, a vaccination clinic (dogs must be on a lease and cats must be in a cat carrier), educational mini-seminars and refreshments. Contact the Flathead County Animal Shelter at 752-1310 for more information.
