Pet of the Week: Wickham the Female Tortoiseshell


Wickham is a female tortoiseshell who has quickly warmed up to volunteers and will rub against their legs when she wants some attention.

After being petted her for a while, Wickham will roll over and show off the little white spots on her belly.

Wickham and other adoptable pets are available at the Los Alamos County Animal Shelter, 226 East Road, (505) 662-8179.

All adoptable pets are microchipped, spayed or neutered, and up-to-date on vaccinations. Dogs are checked for heartworm.

Visit the Friends of the Shelter website at for information about volunteering, adopting and donating.
