Featured Fido - Help the Great Falls Animal Shelter This Holiday

When it comes to furbabies, I am always going to be an advocate for any of them.  Dogs, cats, chinchillas, horses, whatever.  If I could adopt or help every single one of them, I would.  Which makes seeing things happening at the Great Falls Animal Shelter hard for me.  I want to adopt them all.


Our shelter and surrounding shelters or rescues are all feeling the crunch.  Being overloaded with rescues or turn-ins, or the lost or abandoned has made it incredibly difficult to keep their heads above water.

Everyday items that our pets love more than their expensive toys

We spend a fortune on brand new toys for our pets. Chances are that they will completely destroy those at some point. But before that destruction happens, there are some normal, everyday items that we have in our homes that our pets would rather play with. The best thing...these "toys" are usually way less expensive.

25 Unusual Things Owners Say They're Pets Have Eaten

Having a pet, especially a dog, is like having a toddler all the time. If you don't see or hear them for a while, it usually means they're getting into something they're not supposed to be getting into. After my dog had to have surgery to remove a lump of carpet she had eaten, I wanted to know if there were any other strange or unusual things other people's pets have digested. How some of these animals still have working digestive systems is nothing short of a medical miracle. It's a good thing they're cute.
