Friends of the Shelter is a non-profit organization dedicated to the welfare of shelter animals in north central New Mexico.
Our activities include:
Promoting adoption of shelter animals
Mobile Adoption Clinics
Paying for medical care for shelter animals
Funding spay and neutering of shelter animals
Recruiting volunteers to work with shelter animals
Our organization works closely with the Los Alamos Animal Shelter, and adopting a friend from the shelter is rewarding and easy!
The shelter charges a $35 adoption fee for pets that come into the shelter already neutered; otherwise the fee is $60 to assist in covering sterilization costs.
The Los Alamos Animal Shelter is located at 246 East Road in Los Alamos, and the phone number is 505-662-8179. The Shelter hours are M-F 10-6 and Sat and Sun 10-1.
The Shelter provides care for animals for 10 days and vaccinations before making them available for adoption. Some pets are in foster homes, and information about these animals is available from the shelter.
All dogs are given a DHLPP shot when they come into the shelter and cats are checked for feline leukemia.
Any animal that appears to have a medical problem is taken to a local vet for evaluation.
