Animal shelter

-A A +A





The Los Alamos Animal Shelter, 226 East Road, 662-8179, has a great selection of on-site adoptable pets; others are in foster care with loving, temporary homes. 

All of our fully reconditioned adoptable pets are spayed or neutered, have their shots and are micro-chipped.

Be sure to check out links to our many pets at the Friends of the Shelter Web site: www.lafos.org. You can also volunteer or make a donation.  

Don’t forget our two-for-one, $35 Cat-a-Palooza adoption event is still going on for a limited time.
