The Los Alamos Animal Shelter, 226 East Road, 662-8179, has a great selection of adoptable pets just waiting for their forever home.
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 our Petfinder page for pictures and to learn more about all of our adoptable pets at petfinder. com/shelters/friendsoftheshelter.html.
All adoptable pets are microchipped, spayed or neutered, and up-to-date on vaccinations.
Calypso — A gentle brindle-point black lab mix found roaming near Pueblo Complex. He loves to go for walks, especially if there is a large patch of grass where he can take a break and roll around. He seems to bounce rather than walk, so you know he’s having fun! He prefers a home with a person that is home more often than not. He doesn’t enjoy sharing his home with cats. When left home alone, Calypso might do best in a crate.
Cessna — A German shepherd/lab mix that was found near the Los Alamos airport last summer. He has spent the past few months as a mostly-outdoor dog, and would love to find a new family that will lavish him with attention and take him out for long walks so that he can regain the svelte figure that he once had. Cessna prefers not to share his humans with other male dogs, but might prefer the company of a “girlfriend”. Call sponsor at 231-3624 for more information.
Heath — A 3-year-old male shepherd mix who is a very mellow gentleman. He has a beautiful chocolate coat with apricot markings. He would be a fine family member with adults, gentle children and most other dogs. Heath needs a home with a good fence and an owner that will be the leader of his pack. Call 412-3998.
Marmaduke — A brindle pit mix with loads of energy! Shelter volunteers have been working on helping Marmaduke learn how to walk on a leash — he just wants to go, go, go! One of our volunteers has been putting a doggy backpack on him and he loves it, so he would probably be a good hiking dog. He seems to get along better with female dogs.
Reggie — A year old border collie mix who would love a dog friend to play with! With patience and consistency, Reggie has really blossomed at the shelter, and his goofy, gangly legs make the volunteers laugh. A dog friend would really help him settle in to his new home. Reggie has been patiently waiting many months for his new home, and has his paws crossed that someone falls in love with him soon!
Romper — A year old border collie mix who prefers the company of another dog to build confidence and help him settle into a new home. He is very shy, but will bond with his person, given enough time and consistency. To meet Romper in his foster home, call 412-3451.
Willow – A 2-year-old spayed female shepherd/rottie mix. She is very sweet, but shy. Enjoys the company of other dogs. Willow is curious about cats, but not aggressive. She needs some patience with her house manners, but is ready to be your love.
Archangel — A big Russian Blue neutered male cat left at the front door of the shelter. He was a little uncertain about the shelter at first, but he warms up quickly to shelter volunteers. His cute little face makes him look perpetually grumpy, but his purr tells a different story. Russian Blues can be quite sensitive, so “Archie” would like a home where he gets lots of love and attention.
Bingley — This beautiful gray and tan long-haired girl would love for you to come see how pretty and soft her coat is! She took a few days to figure out that the cat room isn’t a big scary place. Once her friend Wickham comes out for some attention, Bingley isn’t far behind. This sweet girl would make a great companion for someone looking for a lap cat with lots of love to give.
Darcie — A long-haired tortoiseshell that is still a bit nervous about coming out for attention. She was surrendered with Wickham and Bingley when their person went to assisted living, and Darcie just needs a little more time to adjust. She has her paws crossed that you’ll come meet her when she is ready for visitors!
Mamacita — This gray, long-haired female was found with her three kittens. The kittens have been weaned and Mamacita has been spayed and is ready for a new home.
Ripples — A pretty tabby cat, a neutered male just returned to the shelter. Ripples has made clear his distain for certain interruptions in his peaceful life, meaning he will not share his home with dogs, small children, or cats. Meet Ripples and see if your home is up to his standards. He will make it worth your while to be his human.
Shyanne — This very pretty 4-year-old spayed female Siamese mix is looking for a quiet home where she can be the only pet. Her family is very sad to part with her, but the stress of sharing a home with other cats has affected her health. Shyanne’s veterinary care is up to date, and she needs insulin twice a day. A less active home will probably make her diabetes easier to manage. To meet Shyanne in her foster home, call 412-0700.
Wickham — A spayed female tortoiseshell who has quickly warmed up to volunteers and will rub against your legs when she wants some attention. If you pet her for a while, she will roll over and show you the little white spots on her belly!
