Don’t forget about the Posse Shack Pancake Breakfast. All proceeds from this morning’s pancake breakfast will go towards Friends of the Shelter. Some of our current adoptable dogs will be there as well. 

The Los Alamos Animal Shelter, 226 East Road, 505-662-8179, has a great selection of onsite adoptable pets just waiting for their forever home. Others are currently off-campus in loving foster homes.

Be sure to visit the Friends of the Shelter website, lafos.org, where you can get more information about volunteering, adopting and donating. Also check out the Petfinder page for pictures and to learn more about all of the adoptable pets,

Cessna — A German Shepherd/Lab-mix tht 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 take him out for long walks so that he can regain the svelte figure that he once had. He will give you lots of licks and tail wags in return. 

Chaparral — A beautiful white spayed female Lab/Retriever-mix, about three-years-old. Originally found roaming near Royal Crest. She is so pretty and sweet that nobody understands why her family has not claimed her. 

Fly —A very sweet female Border Collie-mix. She is very shy and living in a foster home, where she is gaining some confidence. To meet Fly in her foster home, call 412-3451. 

Maya — One-year-old chocolate Lab with lots of puppy energy. After surrender to the shelter, she was sent to the vet, who told us she is blind. She is in foster care because of her blindness and for treatment of any other veterinary needs. To meet this nice girl in her foster home, call 412-3451. 

Penny — This two-year-old Pit Bull has weaned her large litter of puppies and can’t wait to find a new home. She walks nicely on leash and stays close on off-leash hikes, comes when called. Great mid-level energy and adores kids, OK with cats and other dogs. She comes with a free training consultation with Proton Pawsitive Dog Training to help settle her in. Call Jacinta at 433-8617 to meet her. 

Puppies —13-week-old, Pit Bull/Rottweilers who should mature to between 60 and 80 lbs. Extremely well-socialized and suitable for homes with kids, dogs and cats. They come with a free training consultation with Proton Pawsitive Dog Training to help them settle in. Call Jacinta at 433-8617 to meet them. One female, five males.

Reggie — Nine-month-old Border Collie-mix who would enjoy a dog friend to play with. With patience and consistency, Reggie has really blossomed at the shelter and his goofy, gangly legs make the volunteers laugh. A dog friend would really help him settle in to his new home. Reggie has been patiently waiting many months for his new home and has his paws crossed that someone falls in love with him soon. 

Romper — A very shy boy that will bond with his person, given enough time and consistency. Changing homes is frightening for him, but having a dog companion helps. To meet Romper in his foster home, call 412-3451.

Turbo —Two-year-old brown-and-white male dog seeking endless tennis ball tosses and a loving owner who will make sure that Turbo gets his twice-daily thyroid medication. Turbo is a bit large for small children, but he enjoys the company of adults, female dogs and some male dogs.

Calypso —A gentle black lab mix found roaming near Pueblo Complex. His family never found him, so he’s looking for his new forever home. He loves to go for walks, particularly if there is a big grassy patch along the way where he can take a break and roll in the grass. He seems to bounce rather than walk. He prefers a home with a person who is home more often than not. He doesn’t enjoy sharing his home with cats. 


Bennet — 8 year old female Siamese/Tabby mix. She has the beautiful blue Siamese eyes, but doesn’t seem to have the loud Siamese voice! She is still getting used to her new living arrangements, but will approach you for pets if you sit on the floor and give her time to approach you. She has lived inside her whole life, and would like to keep it that way! 

Calysta — beautiful calico kitty originally found roaming in White Rock.  Since her family never came to get her, she is hoping that a new family will come pick her up and give her the love and attention that she desires. She is the current cat room greeter and is easily coaxed down from her favorite perch for some attention.  

Darcie — Beautiful domestic long-hair female Tortie who came in with Bennet and needs a quiet home. Indoor kitty. Likes gentle older children.ROAMERS
