LAPD Announces Animal Shelter Art Contest




Los Alamos Police Department would like to invite the public to participate in an Animal Shelter Art Contest.  Through this difficult and confusing time, we would like to ask the youth of community to brighten our walls with their art work depicting their favorite pet or animal.

There will be four age groups and the rules and instructions are below.  Our own Animal Shelter Manager, Paul Sena, drew the  pictures shown to get us started.  Please call (505) 662-8179 if you have any questions.

The contest has four age groups:

  • up to 5 years old
  • 6 – 9 years old
  • 11 – 13 years old
  • 14 years and above

Rules are as follows:

  • On the back of your drawing please give a brief description of your drawing and please write as clearly as possible.
  • All art must have your name, age, address, and your parent’s name and phone number on the back.
  • All entries can be mailed to the Animal Shelter at 226 East Road, Los Alamos, NM, 87544 or placed in the mail box outside the shelter, or call and make an appointment to drop off your drawing at the shelter.
  • All entries must be in by 10 June, 2020.
  • We will post all drawings on our Facebook Page and they will be voted on.

A winner will be picked from each age groups and will be hung in the lobby of the Animal Shelter for all guests to see when the shelter is back open.
