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 micro chipped. Visitor guides: Between 4-6 p.m. Friday, volunteers will be at the shelter to give potential adopters personal introductions to the adoptable animals.

Cessna— Roamer from the airport. Golden Retriever-mix. Shy, but seems sweet and submissive. Will be available for adoption after vet appointment Tuesday.
Coqueta — Six-year-old spayed female Retriever/Chow-mix surrendered. Good with adults and gentle children. Has been an outdoor dog.
Damian — Large black and white Pointer-mix. After living on a chain, he is enjoying a little freedom at the shelter. Will have a temperament test soon.  
Little Bee — Sweet, friendly four-month-old GSD-mix puppy. Will be a confident adult. Very nice little girl.
Nani — Senior brown-and-white English Hound-mix. Owner going abroad. Needs a quiet retirement home. Has reasonable doggy manners. Would be a nice, calm companion in a quiet home.
Ponyo — Male Fox Terrier-mix. Previously lived outdoors, so needs some patience with house manners. No aggression or guarding issues. Just got a bath, neutered, shots and micro chip.
Princess — Six-year-old female Shar-Pei/Catahoula-mix. She is a little wrinkled with a gorgeous, soft coat. She enjoys the dog park and is calm, easy-going and really likes people. She’s housebroken, has nice manners and is low-maintenance. Call 695-9426 for information.  
Sam — Five-year-old neutered male Lab-mix. Surrendered because he can’t go along to college. Vet care all up to date. Adoptable as soon as micro chipped and temperament tested.

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.
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.
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.  
Jasmine — Black female. Was spayed last month. OK with cats and kids. Does not appreciate dogs. Has always been an indoor kitty.
Kittens — Three kittens, Shadow, Little Gab and George, are now available for adoption at the shelter.
Tucker —Currently assuming the role of Cat Room greeter. Supreme lap cat. Eight-year-old domestic long-hair tuxedo neutered male. Fine with other cats, does not value dogs. Mom had to move where Tucker couldn’t go. A friendly cat that solicits pets and likes to be held.

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.

• Small black and white mixed-breed puppy found near Mesa Public Library. Ask for Roscoe.
• Small, reddish-brown dog near Pajarito Acres. A kind soul picked up Foxton and nursed him back to health with vet care and then brought him to the shelter.

Ollie— Cinnamon- color, 30 lbs., gentle, older mixed-breed female. Calm, would be good in a quiet home. She is a sweet lady who’s a little blind. At the dog park, she frolics like a puppy. Good with other dogs. Groomed by Yours Truly, Diana. Call 662-5086 for information.
