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.
Autumn — This spayed female is one of those rare breeds that doesn’t come around very often — a New Mexico Brown Dog. She is housebroken and leash-trained, just don’t try to force her to be friends with any dog smaller than her.
Axle — Don’t let those sad-looking eyes fool you. Axle is a playful and affectionate neutered male. The shelter temperament testers describe this Pit-mix as a total sweetheart. He would love a family that appreciates big, sloppy dog kisses.
Bear — Large year-old male Heeler-mix. Housebroken, people oriented. Reported to be good with dogs.
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 an adorable black-and-white Spaniel/BC-mix. He recently got a bath and is ready to show off his clean, lovely coat. He is affectionate and sweet with both dogs and people and wold love to accompany his new person everywhere.
Pondi —Female German Shorthair Pointer-mix. This sweet girl would love to go on a walk with you and show you just how well she can point. She enjoys the company of both dogs and humans and especially enjoyed Downtown Dogs Thursday evening.
Rachel — Adorable Boxer-mix female puppy, about 12 weeks old. She is currently in foster care, recovering from her recent spay surgery and is keeping her paws crossed for that perfect home.  
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.
Scooby — One-year-old spayed female Australian stumpy tail cattle dog. This little girl just wants to run. She has a blast on walks and she is very good at herding if you are not moving fast enough for her.
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 — Friendly, long-haired spayed female. Beautiful white-and-Tabby markings. Craves human attention, but also loves play time. She would love to have playmate in her new home.
Brunhilda — A black-and-white spayed female. She is 18-months-old and still has lots of kitten energy. She would love a home where she can play all day long. She is making friends in the cat room and also enjoys the company of adults and gentle children. She would love to show you how fast she can run.
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 Tuxedo domestic short-hair kitten with eyes that are almost too big for his head. He really enjoys playing with his buddy Moonshadow.
Kittens — We have kittens in foster care until they can be spayed, neutered and immunized.
Lizzie —Long-haired Blue Russian declawed female. Good with dogs, other cats and gentle children. If you really want to get her worked up, give her some catnip. Must be an indoor cat.
Mishka, Mi Mi and Romeo — These three cats came to the shelter earlier this week when their elderly owner could no longer take care of them. Mishka and Romeo are Maine Coon and Mi Mi is a Tabby.  
Moonshadow — Gray-and-white playful older kitten. His current hobbies include pouncing on fake mice and playing with his other kitty friends in the communal cat room.
Obsidian — Eight-year-old domestic long hair black cat. Does well with cats, but does not love dogs. Good with children.
Smokey — This sensitive Blue Russian is adjusting well to life at the shelter and now looks forward to attention from volunteers. He would appreciate being an only kitty, but would be fine with another kitty who understands Smokey’s shy and quiet nature.
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.
• Maynard — Very friendly gray-and-white kitten found roaming near Aspen School This little guy wants out of his cage and can’t wait to play with both humans and cats.
