12-30-12 Animal Shelter report

-A A +A

 

The Los Alamos Animal Shelter, 226 East Road, 662-8179, has a great selection of onsite adoptable pets waiting for their forever home. Others are currently off-campus in loving foster homes.

Be sure to visit the Friends of the Shelter website, lafos.org, where you can get more information about volunteering, adopting and donating. Also check out the Petfinder page for pictures and to learn more about all of the adoptable pets, petfinder.com/shelters/friendsoftheshelter.html.

This would be a wonderful time to consider giving a home to one of the animals in the shelter. Open Sunday, Monday, but closed Tuesday. Happy holidays from Friends of the Shelter and the shelter staff. All adoptable pets are spayed or neutered, have their shots and are micro chipped.

 

DOGS

Coqueta — A three-year-old Golden-mix. She is smart, confident, energetic and loves people. She is good with smaller and younger dogs, kids and does very well in crowds. Spayed, shots and micro chipped.

Gizmo— Year old, nice, friendly mixed breed boy. He just came in. He is reported to be very clever, so a secure yard will be a must. 

Gracie — Ten to 12-year-old Cocker Spaniel. Rescued off the street and brought back to health by a good neighbor. Not great with other dogs, but a good companion for a quiet family. 

Reggie, Fly and Romper — Border Collie-mix puppy siblings. Seven-months-old, neutered/spayed and up-to-date on shots. 

Pongo — Five-year-old Pekingese. This little guy has had a rough time. He had a skin condition that the shelter has been treating. He is so much better and will be up with the other dogs later this week. A friendly little guy that loves children and does well with other dogs. Housebroken. 

Max — Handsome one-and-a-half-year-old red male Husky. Reported to be quite the escape artist when he wants to see other dogs and people. We have an offer for a consultation on working with Huskies for a new adopter. 

Gracie — Ten to 12-year-old Cocker Spaniel. Rescued off the street and brought back to health by a good neighbor. Not great with other dogs, but a good companion for a quiet family. 

CATS

We have some young kittens in foster care. When they are old enough for shots and sterilization, they will either return to the shelter care or be adopted from foster family.

ROAMERS

County ordinance requires that a roaming animal be kept for 10 days waiting for owners to claim it. Keep those tags on your pets so they can come home to you quickly.

 

• Three female puppies found on Barranca. Will belong to the county on Dec. 31. Ask to see Maple, Butterscotch and Twilight.

 

• Chocolate Lab, beautiful female found at the Emergency Operations Center on West Jemez Road. Collar, but no tags or microchip. Very friendly and healthy. Ask for Frolic.
