All adoptable pets are microchipped, spayed or neutered, and up-to-date on vaccinations.
Two for one this week! Antwon Cloud and Harley Davidson would be great together. Stay tuned for new arrivals.
Aleah — A 5-year-old, spayed, female with the most beautiful coat! She is a longhaired calico. She relishes attention from humans, but she can get easily worked up, so she would most likely be better with older, gentle kids rather than young children.
Antwon Cloud — Antwon Cloud is a 9-year-old, all-white Oriental Shorthair. He was surrendered with Harley and another cat due to their owner’s health issues. Antwon Cloud currently has a few health issues of his own, so shelter staff and volunteers are working hard to get him feeling better.
Beowulf — A large, friendly, all-black male cat found roaming near the airport. He is so friendly, that shelter staff can’t believe his family never came for him! He’s not fond of other cats, but he doesn’t mind hanging out with dog friends!
DQ — This new surrender is a neutered male Manx. He is still very frightened and confused about being at the shelter, so staff and volunteers are slowly getting to know him and help him adjust to life at the shelter. He is now starting to enjoy gentle attention from adults.
Harley Davidson — This 6-year-old Siamese tabby mix is one BIG dude — he tips the scale at 17.2 pounds! He was surrendered with two other cats due to owner health issues, and is still adjusting to life in the cat room. Since Harley came from a multi-cat household, he would love to live with other feline friends again!
Jupiter — A 10-month-old, gray and white, male tabby. This tomcat came to the shelter from a life on the streets, and he would prefer to have safe, indoor forever home. He has been diagnosed with a heart murmur, but he is healthy in all other ways.
Mountain — A young, neutered, male white kitty with some black markings. Originally part of a colony on Alabama Street, he has been in foster care since August. For more information, call his sponsor at 470-6973.
Pionono — A large, friendly, domestic short hair, orange tabby, neutered male, adopted from the Santa Fe shelter. Microchip directed shelter workers to the adopter, who has been contacted but not yet come to bring this nice cat home. Vet care is updated, and this cat is available as of Jan. 7.
Sparkle — Sparkle is one cool cat! He is a young, neutered, tan and white cat. Sparkle came from a feral cat colony living on Alabama Street, but you would never know he was once feral since he is so friendly now. He can still be a bit skittish at times though, so he would be best in a home without young children.
Shyanne — This very pretty, 4-year-old, spayed, female, Siamese mix is looking for a quiet home where she can be the only pet. Shyanne’s veterinary care is up to date and she needs insulin twice a day. To visit Shyanne in foster care, call 412-0700.
Whirley — A frightened, tabby kitten, who somehow found his way to Los Alamos from a feral colony in Santa Fe.
Xena — A spayed, female, orange tabby, surrendered for expressing her dislike for sharing her family with other cats. She can be a bit hissy with other cats in the cat room, but she has learned to get along with them. She would prefer to do without the presence of children.
Ziva — This beautiful, white and gray, tabby is an 8-year-old, spayed, female that loves to observe the cat room from atop a cat tower, so she can keep tabs on all the cats. She was surrendered for not getting along with the other cat in the household. She would do best in a home without young children or dogs.
Breezy — A small, black and white, spayed, female, Daschund/Boston terrier mix. No dogs. No children. Loves adults, and will jump into your lap. Sweet and happy when volunteers take her for walks.
ChuChu — This beautiful, 2½-year-old, neutered, male, ridgeback cross has had a tough go of things recently, after managing to escape from several homes. He would be happy as an only dog, but he would also be fine with some K9 friends. For a personalized introduction to ChuChu, call 412-3451 or 433-8617.
Dallas — A year old, spayed, female, German Shepherd cross. She came into the shelter very frightened, but she has made great progress with the work of shelter volunteers. She is still a little scared of new people, and would probably be best in a home without children. She loves training and taking walks and would love a job. For a personalized introduction to Dallas, call her sponsor at 501-0790.
Sheila — A friendly, 2½-year-old, tan, spayed, female that is housebroken, crate trained, has some obedience training. She loves to play and go for hikes. Cats are OK. For a personalized introduction to this sweet dog, call her foster mom at 433-8617.
• A blonde, male, Chihuahua, very friendly, loves going for walks. Ask for Werther.
