Committee mulls shelter’s future

Residents concerned that Los Alamos County might make its animal shelter into a transfer-only shelter expressed anger and disappointment Wednesday at a committee meeting.  

Many residents attended after reading a Facebook post written by one of the committee’s members Tuesday.

“It is quite possible that the Shelter will turn into a transfer only shelter, due to lack of funding. There would no longer be a place to adopt animals in Los Alamos County. Public outreach programs would stop and volunteer opportunities would end. All due to the lack of $150,000.00/year,” said Los Alamos Animal Shelter Advisory Committee member Wendy Marcus in the Facebook post.

The advisory council was created by the Los Alamos County Council last summer to come up with solutions to the shelter’s ongoing staffing and support issues.
