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.
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.
ThreeBorder Collie puppies (Reggie, Fly and Romper) — Border Collie puppy siblings, six-months-old. Neutered/spayed and up-to-date on shots. Responding very well to soclialization by shelter volunteers and guidance from other shelter dogs.
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.
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.
Ralphie — Three-year-old, lovely, soft, domestic short-hair spayed female Tabby/Tortie, given for adoption with her friend Mo. Ralphie was shy at first, but now comes out for shelter volunteers to pet and admire her. She is reported to not care for dogs.

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.
