Jasper


Jasper, a junior puppy, sees excitement and goodness in every minute! 

We told him this morning that he's soon going to be in a loving home and he reacted with this huge smile. 

Jasper is a steel-grey tuxedo Bully mix, 7 months of age, now neutered and debuting for adoption at Nevada SPCA.  Please puppy-proof your home and yard for his safety. 

He gets along well with other friendly dogs, as long as he is fed meals and treats alone. 

We rescued Jasper from another shelter that asked for our help due to his broken leg (cause of trauma unknown).  He is now healed and eager to begin his new life.

Terrific update on Athens!





Athens, on Nevada SPCA's web site, 2013
Terrific update on Athens, adopted in 2013, from his dad, Todd, who says he is perfect with his family!

"I saw this 6-month-old cute bully mix with beautiful brindle color named 'Athens'.  His ears would fold like he's praying.  I asked to see him.  He ran right up to me and jumped in my lap and showed love.  I played with him outside for an hour and knew he was the one."

"Now, 2 years later, he's grown into our family and become the most loved dog ever.  He sleeps in our bed and plays with our kids and he's very happy.  We spoil him like a kid."

Roscoe

Roscoe beams with pride and hope, making great strides learning to trust people. 

Rescued 6 weeks ago from the streets, terrified of quick movements, Roscoe wanted nothing to do with humans. 

But he is now eagerly greeting staff and choosing to stand close for companionship. 

Due to the severity of his abuse, Roscoe's journey to recovery will take much longer, but he has advanced enough that he can join a very experienced, adult-only home and continue improving. 

Roscoe is a good-looking Australian Cattle Dog, 5 years of age and neutered, good with other dogs, awaiting a hero at Nevada SPCA.  He enjoys playing ball and jumping in wading pools.

Gisselle


Gisselle, a young Terry-Poo (Terrier & Miniature Poodle mix), was found abandoned and injured near a Vegas freeway. 

Her hind leg was severely wounded and infected, but not from being hit by a car, but from neglect so extreme that the knots in her coat had grown inside her leg. 

Now, after two months of treatment and successful recovery, Gisselle is now spayed and ready to find out what a loving home feels like. 

She is understandably pensive and reserved, unsure if she can really rely on people, but yet she wants to trust and believe in kindness. 

Gisselle is 3 years of age and picky about other dogs. 

Please help find her someone who will patiently help her reach her full loving potential and never fail her.

Rani
Iridessa, Rani, and Rosetta are maternal baby girls who like to groom and comfort cats and dogs. 

The sisters are now 3 months of age, spayed, and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA.  Please be sure to carefully kitten-proof your home.

The girls and their mother, Norma, needed us when their previous owner died.  Since then they have been lovingly raised and socialized in a foster home. 

Like their mom, two (Iridessa and Rosetta) have extra toes (polydactyl). 

[Norma was spayed and adopted earlier this month.]

Holly



Holly is an adorable English Bulldog debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

She is 7 years of age, spayed, housetrained & crate-trained, good with older kids, and compatible with some dogs (though picky about which dogs she likes). 

Holly doesn't instantly warm to people, but steadily builds strong bonds with time and familiarity. 

At the time of rescue she was surrendered by her previous owner and in peril from pyometra (uterine infection).  Thanks to generous donors to our advanced care fund, we had emergency surgery provided to save her life (removing her uterus and ovaries), and she healed very well.
