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.

Fly —A very sweet female Border Collie-mix. She is very shy and living in a foster home, where she is gaining some confidence. To meet Fly in her foster home, call 412-3451.
Maxwell — Year-old, neutered male Heeler/Lab-mix. Looking for a family that will exercise him and continue basic training. Young and energetic. Housebroken and leash-trained. Confident, social, active, no guarding. Overall, good family dog. Likes walks.
Penny — This two-year-old Pit Bull has weaned her large litter of puppies and can’t wait to find a new home. She walks nicely on leash and stays close on off-leash hikes, comes when called. Great mid-level energy and adores kids, OK with cats and other dogs. She comes with a free training consultation with Proton Pawsitive Dog Training to help settle her in. Call Jacinta at 433-8617 to meet her.
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.
Puppies —Eight-weeks-old, Pit Bull/Rottweilers who should mature to between 60 and 80 lbs. Extremely well-socialized and suitable for homes with kids, dogs and cats. They come with a free training consultation with Proton Pawsitive Dog Training to help them settle in. Call Jacinta at 433-8617 to meet them.
Reggie —He is the least shy of the pups and also the most active. He gets along with other dogs and needs some training. Patience and consistency is the key to working with Reggie. He will really blossom in a home, particularly with another dog buddy.
Romper — A very shy boy that will bond with his person, given enough time and consistency. Changing homes is frightening for him, but having a dog companion helps. To meet Romper in his foster home, call 412-3451.
Sully — Very lovable, like his namesake in the movie, “Monsters Inc.” Neutered male, two-and-a-half-years-old, pedigreed Ragamuffin. Sully loves to have his belly rubbed and plays well with toys. Great indoor cat, uses his scratching post out of respect for your furniture.
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.
