The Los Alamos Animal Shelter, 226 East Road, 662-8179, has a great selection of on site 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.
Ciera — Spayed female Shepherd-cross who likes to get to know her human associates before she shares her story with them.
Coqueta — Six-year-old spayed female Retriever/Chow-mix surrendered. Good with adults and gentle children. Has been an outdoor dog.
Four Border Collie puppies (Desmond, Bones, Reggie and Romper) — Four-months-old, all males. They are pretty shy and the volunteers are working on socialization. Keep watching as they develop into fun, approachable pups.
Houdini — Not a magician, but rather an adorable black-and-white Spaniel/Border Collie-mix. He recently got a bath and is ready to show off his lovely, clean coat. He is affectionate and sweet with both dogs and people and would love to accompany his new person everywhere.
Minestrone — Currently in foster care, getting ready for a new family.
Remy — Spayed female Shepherd-mix now adapting to her new circumstances.
Rosie — This spayed female is a Lab/Greyhound-mix. She enjoys toys and obedience training.
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.
Aria— Handsome, friendly domestic long-hair black-and-white Tabby. Loves hanging out in the cat room with her new friends.
Barley— Six-month-old Tabby-and-white neutered male kitten. His brother has already been adopted and is ready for a home of his own. Sometimes he can’t decide between playing and purring, so he just plays and purrs at the same time. He also knows how to play fetch.
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.
Emma — Senior female short-hair, mostly white. Recently surrendered after 12 years in the same home. Now looking for an easy, quiet household that loves to give pets.
Gracie — A petite, long-haired female Tortie. Small children are a little too overwhelming for her quiet nature. She loves catnip toys and will roll over for belly rubs any time of day, once  you gain her trust. She has become quite friendly, looking forward to new visitors in the cat room. For a personal introduction, call 505-377-5389.
Huggies — Black-and-white domestic short-hair kitten with big eyes that can’t wait to find a new family.
Kittens — We have kittens in foster care until they can be spayed, neutered and immunized.
Lizzie — Very friendly dark gray declawed domestic long-hair. Always been an indoor kitty. Good with dogs and kids.
Moonshadow — A friendly, playful, older kitten. He and group of friends came into the shelter and their family never came to get them. They all get along well in the communal cat room.
Smoky — A newly-surrendered cat, so stay tuned as we get to know him.
Wussy Pillows— This spayed female came to the shelter when her people lost their home. She is still a bit shy, but is slowly learning to enjoy attention from shelter volunteers.

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.
