Who We Are

Friends of Shelter and Companion Animals, 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 local veterinarians, animal shelters, and with other humane societies. Friends of Shelter and Companion Animals 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. We also partner with local shelters and rescue groups to pay for spay/neuter surgeries for homeless pets looking for their forever home. Learn more about us at
