Animal Shelter 09-02-12

-A A +A

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.

DOGS
Coqueta — Six-year-old spayed female Retriever/Chow-mix surrendered. Good with adults and gentle children. Has been an outdoor dog.
Ellie — Adult spayed female black Shepherd-mix. Friendly, well-socialized, fine with other dogs.
Five Border Collie puppies— Four-months-old, four males and one female. They are pretty shy and the volunteers are working on socialization. Keep watching as they develop into fun, approachable pups.
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.
Seren — Shepherd-mix, still very nervous without her owner, who had to move away for a job. Bonds strongly with a single owner.
Sirius and Prodyon — Two black male Chihuahuas. Originally roaming. Will be neutered this week. They are both a little uncertain about the shelter, but are not loud.
 
CATS
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.
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.
Emma — Senior female short-hair, mostly white. Recently surrendered after 12 years in the same home. Now looking for an easy, quiet household that loves to give pets.
Gracie — A petite, long-haired female Tortie. Small children are a little too overwhelming for her quiet nature. She loves catnip toys and will roll over for belly rubs any time of day, once  you gain her trust. She has become quite friendly, looking forward to new visitors in the cat room. For a personal introduction, call 505-377-5389.
Huggies — Black-and-white domestic short-hair kitten with big eyes that can’t wait to find a new family.
Lightning — Gray-and-white Tabby, young and very friendly, especially when you offer tummy rubs.
Lizzie — Very friendly dark gray declawed domestic long-hair. Always been an indoor kitty. Good with dogs and kids.
Moonshadow— Domestic short-hair, mostly white with a little gray. Young and loves to play.
Piko — A year-old domestic short-hair orange-and-white neutered male kitty. Look closely to see him peeking out from under the kennels. He’s expected to gain more confidence.

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.
