Animal Shelter 01-02-11

-A A +A

Thank you Los Alamos. Six cats and two dogs were adopted last week.
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.  
Every cat is only
$35 with an extended two-for-one sale.
Our overstock is your savings. Adopt one kitty for $35 and if you can find room in your home and heart, adopt a second pussycat free.

Featured Pet of the Week

Bodie —   Is a very small neutered adult male Chihuahua. He’s a sweetie who’s friendly and loves to be held. He’ll climb into your lap, but needs an adult home only. He is really not for children.
Africa — Neutered male, domestic medium-haired Tabby.
Cali — A DLH, spayed female, senior Calico. Owner now lives in Sombrillo. Cali is healthy.
Daisy — Seven year old spayed female. Gets along with adults, gentle children and gentle dogs. Would prefer her own litter box.
Eve — Very special DLH declawed, spayed female. So traumatized by being on her own, shelter staff has had to work hard to coax her out. She will now allow people to pet her and might even sit on a lap.
Gidget — Spayed, 12 year old domestic short-hair Tortie. Family had to move so she was surrendered with companion cat Samantha. Gidget is OK with cats, dogs and kids.
Missy — Is a four year old spayed female American Domestic Tabby.
Necko — Sweet, young black spayed female. Likes attention.
Piper — Adorable, young DSH white, black and gray kitty found at 640 Navajo. Friendly, will see the vet for shots ASAP.

Jack — Adult black male Lab-mix. he was found roaming in White Rock. His owners have not claimed him. He will visit the vet and be neutered this week. He’s a friendly boy but is cautious about children. He’d be best in a home with no small children.
