Also check out our Petfinder page for pictures and to learn more about all of our adoptable pets.
All adoptable pets are micro-chipped, spayed or neutered, and up-to-date on vaccinations.
Bruce — A big brown tank! Bruce just became county property, so the volunteers can finally give walks to this friendly pit mix. He is proving to be very nice on a leash. He has been neutered, had his shots and is available for his new family to come find him!
Calypso — A gentle brindle-point, black lab mix found roaming near Pueblo Complex. He loves to go for walks, especially if there is a large patch of grass where he can take a break and roll around. He seems to bounce rather than walk, so you know he’s having fun! He prefers a home with a person that is home more often than not and he doesn’t enjoy sharing his home with cats. He does enjoy the company of gentle children though! For a personalized introduction to this sweet dog, call his sponsor at 660-1648.
Cessna — A German Shepherd/lab mix that was found near the Los Alamos airport last summer. He has spent the past few months as a mostly-outdoor dog, and would love to find a new family that will lavish him with attention and take him out for long walks. He will give you lots of licks and tail wags in return! Cessna’s sponsor at 231-3624 for more information.
Penny — This 2-year-old pit bull has weaned her large litter of puppies and can’t wait to find a new home of her own. She walks nicely on leash and stays close on off-leash hikes. Penny comes when called, is crate trained, has great mid-level energy. She adores kids, OK with cats and other dogs. She comes with a free training consultation with Proton Pawsitive Dog Training to help her settle in. Call Jacinta at 433-8617 to meet her.
Puppies — Samwise and Frodo are two 8-week-old Shihtzu cross puppies given up for adoption. They were Just neutered and given first puppy shots. The puppies do best in a home where they can receive consistent and gentle training. In foster care while recovering from their vet visit. For foster contact, please call 412-3451.
Reggie — A neutered male border collie cross, about a year old. Would do best in a quiet, patient home. He first came to the shelter as part of a large litter of frightened, unsocialized puppies. He has made wonderful progress as shelter volunteers have worked with him, taking him for walks and home visits. For a personalized introduction by someone who knows Reggie best, call 412-2074.
Romper — A year-old, border collie mix who prefers the company of another dog to build confidence and help him settle into a new home. He is very shy, but will bond with his person, given enough time and consistency. To meet Romper in his foster home, call 412-3451.
Shelia — A 2-year-old tan female who is housebroken, crate trained, has some obedience training and loves to play and go for hikes. Sheila wants adult companionship, because children frighten her. She also needs a good fence for those times alone, so she doesn’t exercise her climbing, excavation, or agility jumping skills.
Buttons — She was surrendered by the landlord while grieving the loss of her owner. She would very much enjoy the comfort of a loving home. Currently, this kitty is very sad and keeping to herself.
Bingley — This beautiful gray and tan, long-haired girl would love for you to come see how pretty and soft her coat is! She took a few days to figure out that the cat room isn’t a big scary place. Once her friend Wickham comes out for some attention, Bingley isn’t far behind. This sweet girl would make a great companion for someone looking for a lap cat with lots of love to give. Call 377-5389 for more information about Miss Bingley.
Darcie — She is a long-haired, tortoiseshell that is still a bit nervous about coming out for attention. She was surrendered with Wickham and Bingley when their person went to assisted living and Darcie just needs a little more time to adjust. She still prefers hiding under the kennels, but if you crawl down on the floor and talk with her, she happily accepts some loving!
Inky — She is a spayed, female black and white tuxedo kitty. Inky originally came in with her litter of kittens, but we won’t let that happen to her again. She is friendly and ready for a human family.
Jammers — A12-year-old, orange tabby, surrendered with Mocha. This kitty is vet care updated, but is afraid of loud children and would feel safest in a quiet home with littermate Mocha.
Kittens — These kittens will be returning from foster care as they recover from spay/neuter and can be adopted. Kittens do best where they can receive gentle attention and where their play does not cause distress about things like draperies and expensive furniture.
Mamacita — Mamacita’s three kittens have found homes, and now Mama wants a home of her own! She has been spayed, so this family situation will not be happening to her again. This petite mackerel tabby has beautiful markings and a soft coat. She lets out a cute little chirp when she’s happy.
Mango — A big and friendly, long-haired orange and white kitty was found roaming on 46th Street. We advertised to find his family, but nobody has claimed this nice kitty. His vet care has been updated and he would love to join your family.
Mocha — A 12-year-old spayed female surrendered for adoption with her littermate when her lifetime owner developed allergies. She is a beautiful, light chocolate tabby, whose vet care is now updated. Mocha would love to be adopted with her littermate Jammers, who is more shy.
Ozzie — This 10-year-old, black and white male kitty is a very fine gentleman. He has assumed the role of Cat Room Greeter, making everyone feel welcome. He is doing great with all of the other cat room residents.
Roo — This is a declawed and indoor kitty only! This lovely flame-point Siamese was surrendered for a new family at the age of 12, is afraid of dogs and has had vet care updated.
Shyanne — This very pretty 4-year-old spayed female Siamese mix is looking for a quiet home where she can be the only pet. Her family is very sad to part with her, but the stress of sharing a home with other cats has affected her health. Shyanne’s veterinary care is up to date, and she needs insulin twice a day. A less active home will probably make her diabetes easier to manage. To visit Shyanne is foster care, call 412-0700.
Tabby — A big and friendly, a lovely orange and white Maine coon cross, neutered male. His long coat will need frequent brushing. This sweet cat has had bad luck when the last several adoptive families have had to move and couldn’t bring him along.
Wickham — A spayed female tortoiseshell who has quickly warmed up to volunteers. She will rub against your legs when she wants some attention. If you pet her for a while, she will roll over and show you the little white spots on her belly!
