The Los Alamos Animal Shelter, 226 East Road, 662-8179, has a great selection of onsite adoptable pets waiting for their forever home. Others are currently off-campus in loving foster homes.
Be sure to visit the Friends of the Shelter website, lafos.org, where you can get more information about volunteering, adopting and donating. Also check out the Petfinder page for pictures and to learn more about all of the adoptable pets, petfinder.com/shelters/friendsoftheshelter.html.
This would be a wonderful time to consider giving a home to one of the animals in the shelter.
All adoptable pets are spayed or neutered, have their shots and are micro chipped.

Barclay — Four-year-old small terrier-mix that came to the shelter when his owner died. He is a friendly little guy that is good with kids and has lived with cats.
Gizmo— Year old, nice, friendly mixed breed boy. He just came in. He is reported to be very clever, so a secure yard will be a must.
Max — Handsome 1.5-year-old male Husky. Reported to be quite the escape artist when he wants to see other dogs and people. We have an offer for a consultation on working with Huskies for a new adopter. Must have a home that understands Huskies.
Maxwell — Just a little more than a year old, neutered male cattle dog-mix. Given for adoption to a home where someone will spend some time to exercise him and continue basic training. Young and energetic. Housebroken and leash trained. Good with adults, gentle children, most other dogs. Has not lived with cats.
Pongo —Five-year-old male Pomeranian-mix. This little guy has had a rough time. He had a skin condition that the shelter has been treating. He is so much better and is now up front with the other dogs. A friendly little guy that loves children and does well with other dogs. Housebroken, loves to go for walks.
Reggie, Fly and Romper — Border Collie-mix puppy siblings. Seven-months-old, neutered/spayed and up-to-date on shots.
Remy — Spayed female, Lab/Shepherd-mix with a pretty red coat. She is good with big dogs. No cats or small dogs, please. Remy is a gentle, shy creature that will respond to love and patience. She would love a home where she will get lots of exercise. She has some crate training.
Shayla — Senior GSD that came to use because owner could no longer keep her. She is getting a grooming courtesy of Yours Truly, Diana. Reported to be good with children and some dogs. She is not used to cats. Housebroken and has some obedience.
Twilight —Last of the female puppies found on Barranca. Has been spayed. Friendly little girl that really misses her sisters.

We have some young kittens in foster care. When they are old enough for shots and sterilization, they will either return to the shelter care or be adopted from foster family.
Arnie —Our current Cat Room greeter. Friendly, playful young adult neutered male orange Tabby given for adoption. Good with adults, gentle children and most other cats.
Burrito —Very mellow, friendly domestic short-hair orange-and-white kitten found roaming at Chili Works Owner cannot be found, so Burrito is ready for a new home.
Sanjay —Domestic long-hair dark grey Tabby given for adoption with Arnie. Still grieving the loss of his home and feeling overwhelmed at the shelter.
Tigger — Tabby. He is still a bit shy from his ordeal, but thanks to his loving foster home, he does roll over for tummy rubs.

County ordinance requires that a roaming animal be kept for 10 days waiting for owners to claim it. Keep those tags on your pets so they can come home to you quickly.
