Donatello finally has a twinkle in his eyes and hope for his future. 

He is a remarkably attractive boy, most likely a Havanese and Wheaten Terrier mix, about 5 years of age, neutered, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Donatello was terrified and shaking at another shelter that asked for our help.  He was in poor, neglected condition, and showed signs of being abused. 

We have been working with Donatello for a few months and he has made great progress. 

A gentle, experienced, adult-only home is ideal for his continuing emotional healing and improvement.

I want you to love me.

Stanley is a most lovable baby boy and he is debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

He is a Bully mix, likely with Mastiff too (and growing to large size), 4 months of age and neutered.

Stanley was found on the streets with a broken hind leg when just a few weeks old.

We placed him in a wonderful foster home for recovery and he has been socialized with cats, dogs, and kids.

Stanley's leg has healed fine and he is regaining muscle strength every day.

Please visit and ask for Stanley by name.

Will you please share some of your kindness with me?

Calvin & Hobbes

Lady Isabella

Foster heroes are urgently needed today! 

This most challenging year ever for motherless young kittens continues with another 8 babies in desperate need of surrogate mothering rescued in the past 24 hours.  Foster homes are also needed for numerous special needs and senior cats.  Please visit Nevada SPCA in person before 4pm if you can help and ask for Katelyn.

Pictured here:

A) Calvin & Hobbes, baby brothers just 5 weeks of age, found motherless in a yard and in distress. 

B) Lady Isabelle, a blind & declawed adult rescued this morning from a discarded plastic box (without food or water). 

C) Adele, a gentle 16-year-old tabby whose previous owner took her to a veterinary hospital for euthanasia because she missed the litter box (and the hospital refused to kill her).

Thank you in advance for helping spread the word for these newborns, seniors, and special needs felines who need heroes!

I believe it's safe to be hopeful again.

Lola is a young Boxer mix with a beautiful spirit. 

Six weeks ago she was at another shelter, distraught, and afraid of people. 

Lola is now shining and confident, eager to begin her new life. 

She is 3 years of age, spayed, and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

These wonderful portraits of Lola are courtesy of the caring people at Pet'ographique.

Look into my ocean-blue eyes...



Three blue-eyed boys -- Stewart, Oscar, and Sammy -- are separately debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

All three happen to be compatible with friendly dogs, as well as other cats. 

Stewart is a Balinese, 4 years of age and neutered, sporting the cutest meow and he plays with balls with bells inside. 

Oscar is a lilac-point Siamese, 6 years and neutered, who likes to sleep on the bed at your side. 

Sammy is a seal-point Siamese, 6 years and neutered, who will follow you around the house to remain in your loving presence.

Don't release me. I can't survive without human kindness.

Anastasia stayed on a woman's porch for hours, friendly but terrified, until she picked her up and brought her to us for safety. 

Anastasia is a snow-white Rock Dove, a species of bird tragically released at some weddings and ceremonial events.

But these doves are domesticated and cannot survive without human kindness, so the vast majority are killed by predators or starvation. 

Anastasia has a home -- she is being adopted by a veterinarian today -- but we think it's important to tell her story to hopefully save other innocent lives from this cruelty.
