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.
Cessna —A German Shepherd/Lab-mix. He was found, lost and very thin, near the Los Alamos Airport. He recovered at the shelter and enjoyed attention from volunteers. He is a very nice dog and will be a fine family member for someone. He spent some time as part of an outdoor-dog family and seems to get along with some of the female dogs, but would do best as an only dog.
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.
Mildred — Young Lab-mix with a bundle of energy. She has a wonderful time running her energy off at the dog park and despite her small size, she enjoys the company of large dogs more than small dogs. She is a very sweet girl who wants to please.
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.
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. One female, five males.
Reggie — He is the least shy of the pups and also the most active. He gets along well 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 a dog buddy.
Remy — Two-year-old German Shepherd-mix. Very shy initially, but she will shower you with love once you gain her trust. The secret to earning her love is long walks. Remy has never met a large dog that she doesn’t like, but she finds small dogs and cats quite annoying and prefers not to live with them. Come meet this sweet and loving girl.
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.
Trixie —Five-year-old Border Collie/Australian Shepherd-mix. She is white with black spots and one floppy ear. She is housebroken, crate trained, good with cats, dogs and adult humans. Trixie has nipped at a young child in the past, so we recommend a home without little kids. Being new at the shelter, she is a little afraid right now.
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.

• Foxy is a tan-and-white Cattle Dog-mix, a roamer in the North Mesa area.
