The Los Alamos Animal Shelter, 226 East Road, 662-8179, has a great selection of onsite adoptable pets waiting for their forever home.
Come find a companion that will give you unconditional love.
Be sure to visit lafos.org, where you can get more information about volunteering, adopting and donating. All adoptable pets are spayed or neutered, have their shots and are microchipped.

Daisy — Three year old female Rottie-mix. A nice dog, but very strong. Would benefit from leadership and calm and consistent training. Former owner says she’s good with kids.
Ollie —Gentle, older red Chow-mix. Calm, would be good in a quiet home. She is protective of her food, so we suggest a home with children older than 12.
Pepsi and Cola —Two spayed female, three-month-old Border Collie-mixes. Just adorable. Have become quite friendly, soliciting human contact.
Polly — Large, yellow female Lab-mix. A very sweet dog. Would make a good pet for a quiet home with a nice, big yard. Proper training could help her overcome her tendency to become overly excited while on walks.
Princess — Six year old female Sharpei/Catahoula-mix. Calm, easy-going, really enjoys the company of people.
Shadow — This energetic, young, spayed female Pit-cross has responded remarkably well to training. Call 505-433-8617 for more information.
Susie Q —Awesome three-year-old spayed female Dutch Shepherd-mix. A lovely dog that enjoys the dog park and other dogs. She really wants to be with her people so the perfect home is where the owners are home most of the time and like taking her along when they go.

All cats are still two-for-one, so if you can’t make up your mind, take them both home. Most cats love having a playmate.
Allie — Senior declawed Calico female that prefers the companionship of people rather than other animals, although she could learn to coexist with select cats. Warms up quickly when  you scratch her.
Buttons — One of our young female orange Tabbies. She is very friendly and doing well in the cat room. Not fond of dogs, but fine with other cats, adults and gentle children.
Cassie — Another plus-sized declawed orange Tabby that loves pets, but only on her terms, might do best in a home with no young children. She is very good about using the scratching post. She was recently  surrendered and is learning to adjust to the company of other cats in the cat room.
Eudora— A very loving and friendly petite female orange and white long-haired kitty found by the airport.
Gracie — Beautiful spayed female Tortie. Very petite and cute. She’s a bit shy, but warms up once you get to know her. Small children are too overwhelming for her. Had a dental exam courtesy of Friends of the Shelter.  
Khalasy — Year-old spayed, female gray tiger-striped with white. New to the shelter, but is adapting quickly. Would do well in a quiet home.
Sage and Autumn — Eight-month-old domestic short-hair kitties. Sage (male) is a gray and white Tabby. Autumn (female) is a Siamese-mix. Both are a little shy but are reported to be fine with cats and children. They don’t like dogs.
Sunshine — Another neutered male orange Tabby. Five-years-old, out and about in the cat room, enjoying the company.
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.

• Two precious kittens left at the door of the shelter. They will be placed in foster care.

• Four-month old
GSD/Catahoula-mix female puppy. Abandoned at shelter. Ask for Nala.


Burma — Four-month
-old spayed, female long-ear Rottie-mix. She is very shy, but is living with another dog and cats, building her confidence. Call 702-807-8878 for more information.
Simba — This sweet, elderly gentleman is just looking for a spot of sunshine on a big comfy chair. He is a long-haired orange kitty who looks exactly like the “Lion King” character for which he is named. To meet Simba, call 505-470-6973.
