JANUARY SPECIAL OFFER FOR LOS ALAMOS RESIDENTS ONLY! The Los Alamos Animal Shelter wants to thank you for shopping and adopting locally. The shelter is offering one chance on a raffle for a $50 gift certificate to Pet Pangaea and a $50 gift certificate to Smith’s for each animal adopted from the Los Alamos Shelter during the month of January. This offer is only valid on animals that arrived at the shelter during 2013.
Also, be sure to check out the website at lafos.org, to can get more information about volunteering, adopting and donating, as well as read up on some favorite animals and learn more about special needs animals, or cats and dogs currently in foster care.
All adoptable pets are microchipped, spayed or neutered, and up-to-date on vaccinations.
Aleah — A 5-year-old, spayed, female with the most beautiful coat! She is a long-haired calico. She relishes attention from humans, but she can get easily worked up, so she would most likely be better with older, gentle kids rather than young children. She is also reported to do well with other respectful cats and even dogs if given a proper introduction! Aleah also sticks out the very tip of her tongue when she’s happy — it’s very cute!
Antwon Cloud — Antwon Cloud is a 9-year-old, all-white Oriental Shorthair surrendered due to his owner’s health issues. Antwon Cloud currently has a few health issues of his own, so shelter staff and volunteers are working hard to get him feeling better. He would do fine in a home with other cats, but no dogs.
DQ — An 8-year-old, neutered, male Manx who lost his home due to a divorce. DQ likes the comfort and security of his own space. He is very frightened by new situations, so it might take him some time to adjust to a new home.
Ella — This very pretty 4-year-old spayed female Siamese mix is looking for a quiet home where she can be the only pet. Ella’s veterinary care is up to date, and she needs insulin twice a day. A less active home will probably make her diabetes easier to manage. To meet Ella in foster care, 412-0700.
Mountain — Mountain is a young, black and white neutered male kitty. He was originally part of a feral cat colony living on Alabama Street and he has been in foster care since August. For more information about adopting Mountain, call his sponsor at 470-6973.
Stormy — A 2½-year-old, flame point Siamese who was recently surrendered. He is reported to not do well with kids, but stay tuned for additional information as we get to know this guy.
Pinono — Shelter staff and volunteers can’t believe that Pinono hasn’t been adopted yet! This friendly, short-haired orange tabby is a big dude who does great with other friendly cats. Pinono is a bit hesitant around children, but he will come out with a little bit of coaxing and gentle petting.
Sassy — A big and beautiful, 5½-year-old, chocolate point Siamese. This spayed female was surrendered for not getting along with the other cat and dog in her home, but she is slowly adjusting to life in the cat room and has been OK with other residents. Sassy would prefer a home with no children.
Sparkle — Sparkle is one cool cat! He is a young, neutered, tan and white cat with one blue eye and one green eye! Sparkle came from a feral cat colony living on Alabama Street. He can still be a bit skittish at times though, so he would be best in a home without young children.
Xena – Xena is a spayed female orange tabby, who was surrendered for expressing her dislike for sharing her family with other cats. She would prefer to do without the presence of children, but she could probably learn to live with other felines if given a little bit of time to adjust.
Whirley — This tabby kitten somehow found his way to White Rock from a feral colony in Santa Fe. Whirley is slowly starting to accept pets and attention from shelter volunteers, and he loves playing with new toys! For more information about adopting Whirley, call his sponsor at 470-6973.
Ziva — This beautiful, white and gray, tabby is an 8-year-old, spayed, female. She was surrendered for not getting along with the other cat in the household. She would do best in a home without young children or dogs.
Breezy — Breezy is a small black and white spayed female Daschund/Boston terrier mix. Shelter volunteers recommend that Breezy not share her home with small kids. She is very sweet and happy on walks.
Bronson — An 8-month-old, pit mix. His foster mom reports that in a low-key foster environment, he is really starting to come out of his shell. He also loves play-dates with other dogs! To meet Bronson, call his foster home at 501-0790.
ChuChu — This beautiful, 2 ½-year-old, neutered, male, ridgeback cross. He is a big guy who can be a little shy with strangers, but is very loyal to those he learns to trust. He would be happy as an only dog. For a personalized introduction to ChuChu, call 412-3451 or 433-8617.
Dallas — A year old, spayed, female, German Shepherd cross. She came into the shelter very frightened, but she has made great progress. She is still a little scared of new people and would probably be best in a home without children. For a personalized introduction to Dallas, call her sponsor at 501-0790.
Jango — A young, Kelpie mix who was recently returned to the shelter. He gets along really well with other dogs and would make a great family dog. He can be a bit shy initially but warms up quickly.
Noelle — A tiny, female, pit mix puppy, black with white markings who came to the shelter as a roamer on a very cold day. She is very gentle and quiet. Once big enough, she will be spayed and ready for adoption. To meet Noelle in foster care, call 412-3451.
Majestic — A young, friendly, high-energy German Shepherd. If you think Majestic might be a good fit for your family, call his sponsor at 709-0651.
Mario and WeeGee — A young, Rottweiler/cattle dog mix brothers. They have been kept outdoors their entire short lives, and they would love a home where they will be loved and treated like a member of the family. They are have a bad habit of jumping on people, so shelter volunteers are currently working on getting them socialized and trained.

• Maverick — A black, male, Miniature Pinscher found at West Gate. He will be vetted and available for adoption soon.
