SHELTER News:

Zoe is a sweet, petite, senior terrier mix who is ready to win your heart! She gets along well with cats, but she would do best as an only dog.
 
She needs to be an indoor dog, but crating stresses her out. For this reason, she would likely be best in a home with lots of human interaction and company.
 
She enjoys the company of adults and older children, but young children can be a bit too energetic for this older gal.

Letter To The Editor: Thank You Los Alamos County Animal Shelter / Special Kudos To Chief Sgambellone!

Los Alamos Friends of the Shelter

Los Alamos Friends of the Shelter wants to thank the Los Alamos County Animal Shelter for its quick and decisive response to containing the spread of parvovirus that recently sickened two shelter puppies. These puppies came to our shelter from another facility with an extremely high euthanasia rate due to space constraints. 

Transfers of this type give the animals that remain in that shelter a better chance of adoption in that community. In return, our community shelter gains a more diverse pool of adoptable animals.

Letter To The Editor: Council Needs To Tackle Off-Leash Dog Issue And Enforcement Needs Teeth

on January 7, 2017 - 3:05pm
By TJ TAUB
Los Alamos

In college, I lived next door to some folks who had a very nice, sweet, goofy dog named Broccoli. They sneered at me when I quit letting my dog run free after she and Broccoli sauntered down an ally and across a busy street where my pup was nicked by a car. Broccoli continued to be able to run free – and ended up being dragged under a car for a mile. Still literally makes me sick to my stomach.

I share the frustration of not being able to take a relaxing walk with the dog in Los Alamos. Instead, I have to keep an eye out for unleashed dogs.
