  • Help foster a furry friend

    The Los Alamos County Animal Shelter, run by the police department, receives Los Alamos animals through owner surrender, abandonment and by picking up roaming animals in this county.  
    The currently low rate of euthanasia has been achieved through the efforts of employees and volunteers to have animals adopted and fostered. The volunteer program would like to expand the network of foster homes for Los Alamos animals in order to continue this success.
    A major cause of illness in shelters is overcrowding. When the shelter becomes overcrowded, short-term foster homes can save health and lives by temporarily absorbing the overflow. When staff advises that adoptions have reduced the population, these fosters may return to the shelter.

  • Gov's plan on health insurance

    Just two days before the U.S. Supreme Court affirmed the constitutionality of President Obama’s  health care law, Gov. Susana Martinez’s administration in Santa Fe announced the creation of a task force charged with developing a state health insurance exchange.
    One of the major features of that law, known as the Affordable Care Act, is that each state must institute health insurance exchanges by 2014 for the purpose of insuring a competitive insurance marketplace in the state, offering choices in health plans and assisting consumers in understanding the insurance options available to them.
