Friends Of The Shelter Alumni Calendars

FOS News:
Friends of the Shelter wants to let everyone know that our Shelter Alumni Calendars for 2017 are now for sale. The calendars sell for $20 at local businesses, and all proceeds will go directly to help the animals through Friends of the Shelter programs.
Pet owners who have adopted a shelter animal or an abandoned or homeless animal have sent in photos and stories about their special companion. The calendars are now for sale at Animal Clinic of Los Alamos, C.B. Fox, L.A. Dog House, Ridgeview Veterinary Hospital, Pet Pangaea, and the Los Alamos County Animal Shelter.  These calendars are attractive spiral-bound 52 week calendars that make great holiday gifts for pet lovers everywhere.
Friends of the Shelter, a humane organization based in Los Alamos is trying to improve the quality of life for unwanted pets and find homes for homeless animals.  We work closely with the Los Alamos County Animal Shelter, with local veterinarians, and with other humane societies. 
Our program has four major components: 1) a shelter program where volunteers visit the shelter to exercise, groom, and socialize the animals to make them more adoptable; 2) an active adoption program where we place animals in good homes; 3) a program where we pay for medical expenses or spay/neuter operations for homeless animals; and 4) an education program to promote responsible pet ownership, including the benefits and importance of spaying/neutering pets.

Friends of the Shelter sponsors two special programs to help pet owners and reduce the number of unwanted pets. The Catastrophic Illness/Injury program provides funds for veterinary treatment of severely ill or injured pets whose owners cannot afford extensive treatment. The second program provides vouchers for free spay/neutering of pets, in order to encourage pet owners to make sure that their pets are surgically altered and cannot produce litters of unwanted cats or dogs.

Friends of the Shelter would like to thank our participating veterinary clinics, Animal Clinic of Los Alamos, Ridgeview Veterinary Hospital, Cottonwood Veterinary Clinic, Arroyo Seco Animal Hospital, the Espanola Shelter, and the Santa Fe Shelter, and for their support of these programs.
