Hey all. We have gotten a few questions about how to tell if your snake is too skinny or overweight. I got this from a corn snake group but it is a good general guide. Hope you find this helpful.

I just want to give everyone a heads up. I am having eye issues and need to see a retina specialist on Monday in Pueblo to see what is going on with my retina. I currently can't see much out of my left eye. We will be open normal hours tomorrow Sat, May 1. Mira and Dave will be there. I am not allowed to work this weekend- per the eye doc.

Keep an eye (no pun intended) on our FB page for any hours changes over the next couple of weeks depending on what we find out and what needs to be done. Thanks!-Jo

We have betta fish in stock!!! Come see us

Today 4/21, we will be opening a bit late. I am waiting on fish and cricket shipments. The fish shipment needs my signature. I hope to be there by 12:30. Thanks!

Tonight 4/6/2021, ASA will be opening at 5 PM.
Rai and I got our COVID vaccine this morning and now we are feeling a little funky. Dave will be working tonight and cannot get there earlier than that. Thank you!

Yep, the old photo of our daughter in her mask for attention!

We know that the mask mandate for Alamosa is expiring. We are going to stop requiring masks but we are asking people to voluntarily wear a mask until we can get our daughter vaccinated, or at least me (Jo) since I am the one most likely to bring it home to her at this point. Dave is in the clear. We will also continue to wear our masks to keep all of you safe. Additionally, because we have no ventilation, aside from some fans just blowing around air, we will be limiting the number of customers in the store to 6 at a time because of our size.

As always, we are trying to keep everyone safe and while we recognize that our COVID numbers are great here in the SLV, we like to be cautious. Thank you for continuing to support us! You kept us going this past year!

Saturday 3/6, Alamosa Small Animals will be open 12-4, instead of opening at 11. Dave got his second shot today and is starting to feel the effects...which is a good thing! However, it means we will likely be down a person tomorrow. We are sorry about the inconvenience and thanks for understanding!

This information about the zebra mussels is from ODFW. It contains more specific instructions about how to deal with this if you have them in your tank. I spoke to CPW and this is not just a Petco thing. It is pretty much any marimo moss balls that were distributed from overseas. They are in other brands as well and they are still working on chasing all of them down. Please take this seriously as currently, Colorado waterways are zebra mussel-free. We want to keep it that way!

Hey all! I am just passing this on in case anyone has picked up these from other pet stores. Zebra mussels are incredibly invasive. If you did get one of these and don't want to deal with it, feel free to bring it in and we will be happy to dispose of it for you. If it is already in your tank, still get rid of it, and then please contact CPW for advice regarding your aquarium.

Meet our newest store pet, Tom Zarek! He was dropped off today. I know it looks like he has Ick in the photo, but I promise, he doesn't. He is jet black with random highlighs.

We may also have two adult rainbowfish (4.5 in) and an orange bristlenose pleco (5-6 in) available this weekend. Please let us know if you are interested! I am just waiting to see how they acclimate.

After looking at the weather across the US this week, we are not even going to attempt to order any fish or animals. It isn't fair to the poor little critters and I have no confidence that shipments will make it through Memphis in time to arrive overnight. Also, most shipments we get do not spend as much time in sub-freezing temperatures so I am not confident the heat packs will hold out even if they arrive on time. We will resume placing fish and reptile orders early next week. Thank you for understanding and I know this is frustrating for people!

***Fish Update***
The short story, we are going to regroup and try again next week. The first delayed box came in today and there were heavy losses. The second box is stuck in Memphis and will not arrive until Monday. I expect a total loss there. That is the box with the bettas. I am sorry guys. I wish I could control the weather, company shipping plans, and FedEx. Unfortunately, I cannot.

We know a lot of you have been looking for betta fish. We really thought we would have them back in by now. However, we now are not sure when they will arrive. Our order finally shipped. One box yesterday and another one supposedly shipping today. The first box is stuck in Memphis though it was supposed to arrive this morning. We can only hope there aren't issues with the second box. We will update as soon as we know more. Thank you.

I'm going to be blunt here. This is a pic of my daughter who has multiple disabilities. She is high risk for COVID. She also clearly hates wearing her mask. I get that. We all are tired of doing it. Yet, I need to keep her safe.

I have noticed more and more people coming in without a mask. I am between a rock and a hard place because I know I have lost customers by enforcing a mask policy. That means the store loses revenue during an already hard year. Please stop putting me in this position. I want to keep my business open but I also need to protect my daughter. This isn't about politics for me. It isn't about some overall survival rate, assuming a person isn't a long hauler. This is very real for me because my daughter needs to be protected from COVID. Thank you for understanding and working with us. -Jo

Thank you everyone for bearing with us this week. Our hours will be back to our weird normal next week, except for Saturday. Saturday will be 12-4. Dave is doing great and every day he is better. It will be a couple of weeks until he is back in the store but he will be back!

Hey all! Tuesday, 1/26, we will have shortened hours. We will only be open 5-6 pm so people who need feeders can get them.

Dave had an emergency appendectomy tonight. He is doing great but I know tomorrow is going to suck for him and he will need assistance when he gets home. Thank you so much for understanding. -Jo

To the person who took our store cell phone tonight, you are not welcome at Alamosa Small Animals anymore. I will call the police the next time you try to come in and I will be filing a police report tomorrow.

(Unless you are one of a very few people who could have made a mistake and grabbed it thinking it was your phone, just message us. We're good. There are only four of you and you are all are my favorites. My bet is on the fifth person on my list of potential people.)

Hey all! I am thinking ahead to spring and was wondering if there is interest in chicks, and maybe ducklings (big maybe because they are cute but messy)? I am thinking of breeds you can't usually get at the big box places...like bantams and heritage breeds. Let me know if there is interest. I wanted to try this last year but the you-know-what hit the fan and we all shut down.
