The Los Alamos Animal Shelter, 226 East Road, 662-8179, has a great selection of on site 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 micro chipped. Visitor guides: Between 4-6 p.m. Friday, volunteers will be at the shelter to give potential adopters personal introductions to the adoptable animals.

Coqueta — Six-year-old spayed female Retriever/Chow-mix surrendered. Good with adults and gentle children. Has been an outdoor dog.
Domino— Very high energy. At 18-months, he is still an adolescent that needs training and guidance. Essentially sweet, friendly and a social guy. He needs lots of exercise and plenty of companionship. No guarding issues, just a big, goofy pup. Most likely a German Shorthaired Pointer/Boxer-mix.
Foxton — Small, reddish-brown dog found near Pajarito Acres. A kind soul picked up Foxton and nursed him back to health with vet care and brought him to the shelter. He’ll go to the vet next week.
Naney — Senior brown-and-white English Hound-mix. Owner going abroad. Needs a quiet retirement home. Has reasonable doggy manners. Would be a nice, calm companion in a quiet home.  Will have some tumors removed and a good dental next week.
Ponyo — Male Fox Terrier-mix. Previously lived outdoors, so needs some patience with house manners. No aggression or guarding issues. Just got a bath, neutered, shots and micro chip.
Sam —Five-year-old cinnamon neutered male Lab-mix. Surrendered because he couldn’t go along to college. A big boy, but calm and sweet, with no issues. Housebroken. Loves going for walks. Responds quickly to commands.
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.
Athena — A beautiful, five-year-old spayed female Calico. She is reported to do well with adults, gentle children, cats and dogs. At the shelter, she is responding well to gentle attention from staff and volunteers.
Buttons — Young female orange Tabby. Very friendly and doing well in the cat room. Not fond of dogs, but fine with other cats, adults and gentle children.
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. Was spayed last month. OK with cats and kids. Does not appreciate dogs. Has always been an indoor kitty.
Kittens — We have kittens in foster care until they can be spayed, neutered and immunized.
Lizzie — Very friendly dark gray declawed domestic long-hair. Always been an indoor kitty. Good with dogs and kids.

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.
