Animal Shelter 01-06-13

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

DOGS
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.
Maple, Butterscotch and Twilight — Border Three female puppies found on Barranca. Have been spayed. Friendly little girls that have really blossomed with attention from volunteers.
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.
Remy — Spayed female, Lab/Shepherd-mix with a pretty red coat. She is good with big dogs. No cats of small dogs, please. Remy is a gentle, shy creature that will respond to love and patience. She would love a home where she will get lots of exercise. She has some crate training.

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.
