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.
Thanks to the shelter staff for outstanding service to the community during the Las Conchas Fire evacuation.
It’s summer, remember that pets also suffer when the temperature rises. Cooling animals (dogs, rabbits, cats) by giving them a “cool” bath or shower to help keep their body temperature down.
A cool towel on a tile floor to lay on, a cool towel or washcloth laying over the skin, next to a fan will also help cool the animal.
Make sure they have plenty of cool water to drink as well.
Signs of heat stroke in a pet are: rapid panting, wide eyes, lots of drooling, hot skin, twitching muscles, vomiting and a dazed look. Call your vet if you think your pet has heat stroke.
Be sure to click on the Friends of the Shelter website, www.lafos.org. You can volunteer and/or donate, as well as check out links to all our adoptable pals.
Remember, when you come to claim your roaming friend, you must have proof of rabies vaccination — it’s the law.
