Shelter is swamped with dogs and cats

-A A +A

The economy has effected the pets in our community. We have had many cats and dogs surrendered to the animal shelter this last month, in addition to the normal intake of roaming animals.  
Our shelter is extremely full right now. If you are considering adopting a dog or cat, please check the Los Alamos Animal Shelter; we have so many wonderful  animals for adoption. Currently, we have a two for one adoption promotion in the cat room.    
On Saturday, Friends of the Shelter is sponsoring a Cat/Kitten Adoptathon from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Los Alamos Dog Obedience Center building next to the shelter at East Park.  
The shelter, 226 East Road, 662-8179, is open every day with normal shelter hours at 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. weekends.
To speak with someone when the shelter is not open, call Sally Wilkins of Friends of the Shelter at 412-3451.
