Shelter to host mobile adoption

-A A +A

Los Alamos County facility has almost reached capacity in the cat room

By Special to the Monitor

August and September are usually the two busiest months at the Los Alamos County Animal Shelter and this year is no exception.
There are more cats in the shelter right now than the shelter has seen in over 10 years and the cat room is nearing maximum capacity.
In order to encourage adoptions and find homes for some of the current cats and dogs, Friends of the Shelter (in conjunction with the Los Alamos County Animal Shelter) and the Española Valley Humane Society are hosting a mobile adoption from  10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday in the Smith’s parking lot at 535 Central Ave.
Stop by to see some of the adoptable cats and dogs and take home a new friend. In addition, the Los Alamos County animal shelter will be open from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday.
Many of the current shelter residents came to the shelter as roamers. These cats and dogs commonly have no tags and have not been micro-chipped; this makes it impossible to locate the owners, so the animals must patiently wait for their family to come claim them.
Unfortunately, many of these roamers have not been claimed, so they are now waiting for someone to adopt them and give them a forever home.
