  • The Los Alamos Animal Shelter, 226 East Road, 662-8179, has a great selection of on-site adoptable pets; others are in foster care with loving, temporary homes.
    All of our fully reconditioned adoptable pets are spayed or neutered, have their shots and are micro-chipped.
    Be sure to check out links to our many pets at the Friends of the Shelter Web site: www.lafos.org. You can also volunteer or make a donation.  
    We get lots of roaming cats and dogs. Don’t assume your cat was a meal for a coyote. Check with the shelter and see if your best friend is bunking with us. Proof of rabies vaccination is required when claiming your pet.

  • Thanks for helping the community
     
    We wish to thank Los Alamos National Bank again for a very generous contribution to the Gift Fund of the Larry R. Walkup Aquatic Center. LANB’s support allows lower-income children and adults in Los Alamos and surrounding communities to have access to our programs of lessons, exercise and recreation.
    During 2010, recipients of all ages were supported by this program and greatly enjoyed using the Aquatic Center.
