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.

Bambi — Female Whippet/Chihuahua-mix. Sweet little thing. Will be seeing the vet Monday and be ready for a new, loving home.
Jackson —Adult male, herding breed-mix. Confident, affectionate, active, people-oriented, very trainable. Short hair, stubby tail.
Maynard —Handsome Visla-mix. Sleek, red coat with white markings. Very friendly boy. Will be vetted Monday and be ready for his new home after that.
Pinta — Year-old spayed female Heeler-mix that loves to go for walks. She is housebroken and enjoys other dogs and kids. She is busy, so will be happy in a busy home with lots of opportunities for exercise.
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.

Abby —Lovely, spayed female. Eight-year-old domestic long-hair gray Tabby. She loves to be held. She might be OK with a quiet cat, but no dogs or children, please.

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.
