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

DOGS
Fly —A very sweet female Border Collie-mix. She is very shy and living in a foster home, where she is gaining some confidence. To meet Fly in her foster home, call 412-3451.
Maxwell — Year-old, neutered male Heeler/Lab-mix. Looking for a family that will exercise him and continue basic training. Young and energetic. Housebroken and leash-trained. Confident, social, active, no guarding. Overall, good family dog. Likes walks.
Pinta — Year-old spayed female Heeler-mix that loves to go for walks. She is housebroken and enjoys other dogs and kids. She is busy, so will be happy in a busy home with lots of opportunities for exercise.
Pongo —Five-year-old male Pomeranian-mix. 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 is now up front with the other dogs. A friendly little guy that loves children and does well with other dogs. Housebroken, loves to go for walks.
Reggie —He is the least shy of the pups and also the most active. He gets along with other dogs and needs some training. Patience and consistency is the key to working with Reggie. He will really blossom in a home, particularly with another dog buddy.
Romper — A very shy boy that will bond with his person, given enough time and consistency. Changing homes is frightening for him, but having a dog companion helps. To meet Romper in his foster home, call 412-3451.
Remy — Spayed female, Lab/Shepherd-mix with a pretty red coat. She is good with big dogs. No cats or 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
There are currently no cats up for adoption.

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.
