Artist: Animal Shelter Manager Paul SenaThe Los Alamos Police Department would like to invite the public to participate in an Animal Shelter Art Contest. Through this difficult and confusing time, the department would like to ask the youth of the community to brighten the walls of the Animal Shelter with artwork depicting their favorite pet or animal.  

There are four age categories.  Rules and instructions are below.  The Animal Shelter's own Manager, Paul Sena, drew the illustrations shown to the left and the bottom of this page to get the contest started.  Call 505-662-8179 with questions.

Art contest rules:


There are four age groups:
Up to 5 years old,
6 - 9 years old,
10 - 13 years old, and
14 years and above. 

  • On the back of the drawing artists are instructed to give a brief description of the drawing. Write clearly.
  • All art must include the artist's name, age, address, and 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, placed in the mail box outside the shelter or artists may call and make an appointment to drop off artwork at the shelter.
  • All entries must be in by 10 June, 2020.
  • Artwork will be posted on the department's Facebook Page to be voted on.
  • A winner will be picked from each age group and will be hung in the lobby of the Animal Shelter for all guests to see when the shelter is back open.
