Friends Of The Shelter (FOS) serves the wider northern New Mexico area by providing services in and beyond Los Alamos County. Our services include low cost spay/neuter programs ($10 co-pay), emergency veterinary funds for low income families, behavior modifications services, and fundraising. A lot of this stuff can be done without even seeing the animals, which is great for animal lovers with allergies!

There are so many ways to help, with time commitments ranging from a few minutes or hours a week to around the clock foster care. Whatever time you have brings us closer to our goals: no more homeless pets! Children over 16 are welcome to volunteer, as are younger children with parental supervision — it’s a great way to involve your family in the rewarding activity of volunteer work!
