The Los Alamos Animal Shelter, 226 East Road, 662-8179, has a great selection of adoptable pets just waiting for their forever home, so come adopt a new friend today! Be sure to check out the Petfinder website for pictures of our adorable adoptable animals:
SHELTER HOURS: Noon to 6 p.m. Monday – Friday and 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. weekends.
Also, be sure to check out the website at lafos.org, to get more information about volunteering, adopting and donating, as well as read up on the favorite animals and learn more about special needs animals or cats and dogs currently in foster care.
All adoptable pets are microchipped, spayed or neutered, and up-to-date on vaccinations.
DQ — An 8-year-old, neutered, gray and white, male Manx cat who lost his home due to a divorce. DQ likes the comfort and security of his own space, but he is slowly gaining confidence in the cat room and is now out in the communal area with other cats. He is a bit shy at first, so it will take some time for him to adjust to a new home, but he would certainly love the comfort and security of a forever home and person! Having a safe space to retreat to, such as a small covered bed, will help him adjust to his new home. He can be easily frightened by loud noises and changing situations, so he would do best in a home without children. His cute little bobtail always surprises shelter visitors!
Smirky — Smirky is an extremely shy all black cat who was trapped a few weeks ago in Pajarito Acres. She hasn’t quite figured out that the shelter isn’t such a scary place, and shelter volunteers are working hard to socialize this petite girl so that she is ready for a new home soon. Check back for more information about Smirky as shelter volunteers and staff work with her.
Stormy — A beautiful 2 ½-year-old, flame point Siamese. After Friends of the Shelter arranged to have his teeth cleaned and his bladder stones removed, Stormy became very affectionate with adult volunteers. He does not care for children, and he prefers not to share the attention with other demanding cats.
Bindi — 8-month old female, tabby with white, still trying to settle in after the trauma of transport. Just vetted on Thursday.
Baby — A 5-year-old, spayed, female, cattle dog/heeler cross. She is good-natured and friendly with adults, gentle children, cats and dogs. Baby loves to go for leash walks and play at the dog park. Good natured to the max, she is comfortable with cats, children and other dogs. Learn even more about Baby by calling her sponsor, Carolyn, at 231-3624 to arrange a personal introduction.
Chrissie — Chrissie is a senior boxer who still has lots of love to give! She is full of energy and very playful. She enjoys the company of people and other dogs. On a recent visit to the cat room, Chrissie was more interested in their food than the cats, so she probably would be fine in a home with cats as well! For more information about Chrissie, call her sponsor at 501-0790.
Clumsy — A young heeler mix who needs to be vetted so Clumsy can find a forever home.
Fergie — A tan and white, female, German Shepherd mix with long hair. She is learning to be less afraid as volunteers take her for walks, but is friendly and loves pets once she knows and trusts you. It usually takes a few meetings for her to let go of her shyness and replace it with her inner love bug. She would like a home without young children. For more information, call her sponsor at 412-1060.
Phantom — A young catahoula mix. He is very shy with new people, but wants to make friends. With patient interactions with volunteers we expect him to blossom into a sweet dog. He has just been neutered and is ready for a new home.
Princess — A beautiful brindle mix who has just had puppies. Just got surrendered to the shelter and will be available after vetting.
Texas — is a 2½-year-old tri-color Aussie mix. He is very active, people friendly and probably friendly with female dogs. He has a lot on energy and loves to go for walks and runs
• Shade is a handsome, adult, black lab found roaming in the parking lot at the shelter.

Information on roaming animals is limited, if you are missing your animal, stop in or call the shelter.
