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.
Barnyard — Frightened
kitty found at 2048 46h St. Large, domestic short hair, swirled Tabby with a lovely coat.

Cali — Current “queen of the cat room.” She’s a beautiful domestic long hair spayed female senior Calico. Her owner now lives in Sombrillo. Cali is healthy and her coat is awesome. She misses a friendly lap and has been at the shelter for a long time.
Choo Choo — A frightened little thing. Has been moved to a big cage to encourage confidence.
Eve — Very special DLH declawed, spayed female. So traumatized by being on her own, shelter staff has had to work hard to coax her out. She will now allow people to pet her and might even sit on a lap.
Gidget — Is a spayed, 12 year old, domestic short hair dark Tortie with big, green eyes. Her family had to move, so she was surrendered with her companion cat, Samantha. Gidget is OK with cats, dogs and kids.

Percey — DSH spayed female, four years old. Good with kids.
