Senior Dog House & Rescue, Mainly Flathead and Lake Counties including the cities of Bigfork, Kalispell, Columbia Falls, Whitefish, Polson

Filled exclusively with seniors, this rescue facility guarantees just the right senior for you! If you can't adopt now, and want to volunteer to help, here is a list of things you might do: 1. Come over and walk the dogs. Could use folks that are willing to commit to one day a week or month to walk the dogs. All dogs need to keep their basic obedience lessons current. 2. Can you train or work with dogs that have no manners? I can use help for a dog knowledgeable person to help with the training, leash walking, basic obedience for the larger dogs entering my rescue group. 3. Like to drive? Can use volunteers that are willing to help the dogs adopted out of this area get to their new homes. So far dogs have been driven to Missoula, Babb, St. Regis, Plains and Fernie, BC on their way to Helena, Vancouver, WA, Calgary, Alberta Canada etc. 4. Have temporary spare room for a dog? Need temporary foster care for dogs. It can range from one day/night to three weeks while altering and transportation arrangements are made or for dogs passing through our area on their way to new homes. 5. Want to be a foster home? There is always a need for homes willing to take on the care, training and feeding of dogs in rescue while they await their new homes. This commitment can range from a couple of weeks to several months. 6. Do you mind "yard cleanup"? There is always a need for extra hands doing "yard duty". 7. Don't have time but still want to help? We can always use collars, leashes, treats, blankets, crates, brushes etc. Any and all donations gladly accepted.
