The Los Alamos Animal Shelter, 226 East Road, 662-8179, has a great selection of on-site adoptable pets; others are in foster care with loving, temporary homes.
All of our fully reconditioned adoptable pets are spayed or neutered, have their shots and are micro-chipped.
Be sure to check out links to our many pets at the Friends of the Shelter Web site: www.lafos.org. You can also volunteer or make a donation.  
We get lots of roaming cats and dogs. Don’t assume your cat was a meal for a coyote. Check with the shelter and see if your best friend is bunking with us. Proof of rabies vaccination is required when claiming your pet.

Barnyard  — Quite the fraidy cat when transported from the 200 block of 46th St. Barnyard is coming along nicely and loves gentle attention. This big guy is a white and gray-swirled Tabby who might just be your next feline friend.
Blackie — A small, young domestic medium-hair black juvenile. Family says she is a great family pet. She loves being held and has a calm personality.
Dogg — Yes, Dogg is a cat. He’s an older, mature and very large gentleman. Dogg would like a quiet home with few distractions and lots of love. A cat to really keep you lap warm! He’s a sweet, snuggly teddy bear of a boy.
Magic  — Large, seven year old, gentle black, gray, and white neutered male. Needs some shots updated. Family said he is excellent with small children. A great family pet.
Missy — Another model in the “gray Tabby” line. Missy is a four year old spayed lady who is attentive and loving. She would prefer a quieter home environment and will make a great companion.
Necko — Named after a misspelled candy wafer? Or perhaps a poorly-heard mention of an animated insurance lizard? You decide. This sleek, young black kitty is sure to be a crowd-pleaser with all her social skills and winning personality.
Ponderosa  — A reluctant alumnus of the roamer category, this petite domestic long hair black and white kitty was not named after a 60s western, but instead the manufactured home subdivision of that name. Upgraded to adoptable, she still has some special medical  needs, which we hope will clear up soon.
Poofey  — This excellent specimen of the Maine Coon variety is dark and mysterious, tending to hide away in his own little corner. But don’t let that fool you; he loves attention, especially being brushed by adults and gentle children.

Barney  — Still here and still looking for a forever home. Won’t someone give him a chance? This eager-to-please Pit-cross is just a year old, a beautiful shade of ocher, plays well with other dogs, loves kids as well as the Dog Park, is neutered and housebroken. Barney could be one of the best friends you will ever have.
Osita  — Nine month old Rottie-mix, mostly brown. She seems very sweet. She will be spayed on Monday.
Rocko — Good looking male Boxer. This week he will be neutered and ready for his new home. He’s a nice, normal dog.

Spot  — A black and white Border Collie-mix, with a large black spot over one eye. Scheduled to be neutered Monday. Good with people and ready to find a forever home.

In foster care
and featured
Eve — A strikingly attractive gray and white young lady. She’s declawed and needs to be indoors-only. She warms up to women.  Call 470-6973.

County ordinance requires that a roaming animal be kept for 10 days waiting for owners to claim it.  After 10 days an animal becomes the property of the county.  Please claim your pets promptly!
