The Los Alamos Animal Shelter, 226 East Road, 662-8179, has a great selection of onsite adoptable pets waiting for their forever home.
Come find a companion that will give you unconditional love. Be sure to visit lafos.org, where you can get more information about volunteering, adopting and donating. All adoptable pets are spayed or neutered, have their shots and are microchipped.

Conan — Not a barbarian! A year-old male fawn-colored GSD-mix. Slender, long legs. He is still adjusting to the shelter, but is reported to be great with kids and compatible with other dogs. Housebroken.
Daisy — Three year old female Rottie-mix. A nice dog, but very strong. Would benefit from leadership and calm and consistent training. Former owner says she’s good with kids.
Ollie — Gentle, older red Eskimo-mix. Calm, would be good in a quiet home. She is a sweet lady who is a little blind and deaf. Let her know you are close by, so she won’t be startled. Groomed by Yours Truly, Diana.
Princess — Six-year-old female Shar-Pei/Catahoula-mix. She is a little wrinkled with a gorgeous, soft coat and is a truly lovely dog. Enjoys the dog park. Calm, easy-going. Really likes people. Housebroken, nice manners.
Shadow — This energetic, young, spayed female Pit-cross has responded remarkably well to training. Call 505-433-8617 for more information.
Sprout— Baby male white/black Beagle. Found roaming near 15th and Peach. Will be neutered on June 19 and available June 20. What a love.
Susie Q — Awesome three-year-old spayed female Dutch ShepheRoad-mix. She really wants to be with her people so the perfect home is where the owners are home most of the time and like taking her along when they go.

All cats are still two-for-one, so if you can’t make up your mind, take them both home. Most cats love having a playmate.
Allie — Senior declawed Calico female that prefers the companionship of people rather than other animals, although she could learn to coexist with select cats. Warms up quickly when  you scratch her.
Buttons — One of our young, female orange Tabbies. She has pretty white markings around her chin. She is very friendly and doing well in the cat room. She is reported to not be fond of dogs, but enjoys the company of other cats and humans.
Cassie — Another plus-sized declawed orange Tabby that loves pets, but only on her terms, might do best in a home with no young children. She is very good about using the scratching post. She was recently  surrendered and is learning to adjust to the company of other cats in the cat room.
Gracie — Beautiful spayed female Tortie. Very petite and cute. She’s a bit shy, but warms up once you get to know her. Small children are too overwhelming for her. Had a dental exam courtesy of Friends of the Shelter.  
Jasmine — Black female. Will be spayed June 15. OK with cats and kids. Does not appreciate dogs. Has always been an indoor kitty.
Sunshine — Another neutered male orange Tabby. Five-years-old, out and about in the cat room, enjoying the company.
Tucker — Eight-year-old neutered male. OK with cats, does not value dogs. Mom had to move and Tucker could not go.
County oRoadinance 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.

• Teeny little four-five-week-old puppy found at White Rock Library. Ask for Cleo.

Burma — Four-month-old spayed, female long-ear Rottie-mix. She is very shy, but is living with another dog and cats, building her confidence. Call 702-807-8878 for more information.
Simba — This sweet, elderly gentleman is just looking for a spot of sunshine on a big comfy chair. He is a long-haired orange kitty . To meet Simba, call 505-470-6973.
