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.
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.  
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.
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.
Shyloh — A really nice, two-year-old neutered black mixed-breed. Loves the dog park, housebroken, good with children.

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.
Bananas — Another Tortie female cat found at Chapel Apartments. Very friendly and ready for adoption.
Cassie — A plus-size declawed orange Tabby female that seeks human attention on her own terms. She has been at the shelter a whole year and cannot wait until the perfect family finally comes along for her. She tends to avoid the company of other cats in the cat room, so may be best as a single kitty. Must be an indoor cat.
Lizzie —Long-haired Blue Russian declawed female. Good with dogs, other cats and gentle children.
Mo — Three-year-old domestic short-hair, spayed female Tabby. Mom could no longer care for her. No dogs, please.
Violet — Quiet, adult female Tortie found on Alabama. Now available for adoption.

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.
