Please never leave me. Please don't give up on me.

Buttercup craves kindness and gives doggie kisses to everyone who is nice to him. 

He is a very attractive blend of Spaniel & Retriever (about 40 pounds), 4 years of age and neutered, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Buttercup is good with other dogs too. 

He was at another shelter that asked for our help.  He reportedly had lost at least 5 homes and become so fearful of abandonment that he developed separation anxiety. 

While there's no instant fix for separation anxiety, there are reasonable steps that can be taken in a stable home to help Buttercup gain self-assurance for the times when he is alone.

Mother Teresa

Mother Teresa not only nurtured her own 5 babies (after being rescued from a backyard), but also served as the surrogate mother who saved the lives of three motherless newborn kittens, and a motherless rabbit too. 
Her babies have been spayed/neutered and adopted (the most recent being "The Krispie Kittens", her adopted kittens, who found lifelong homes last week), so now it's Mother Teresa's turn to find a loving, forever home. 
Mother Teresa is an exceptionally affectionate, thoughtful, and beautiful sandy brown tabby with white mitts, 2 years young, now spayed and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA.
Thank you to her foster parents for helping Mother Teresa and all of her babies.

Apple, Doodle, and Sam

Doodle, inquisitive baby boy.

Apple, affectionate baby girl.

Sam, playful baby boy.

Felicia and one of her five newborns, photographed this past summer shortly after their rescue.
Three of Felicia's babies are debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

You may recall helping us this summer find foster homes for Felicia, a rescued Foxhound mix and her five newborns. 

Apple and two of her brothers, Doodle and Sam, are now about 3 months of age, spayed/neutered, and ready for loving forever homes. 

Their father is unknown and we believe they will grow to at least medium size. 

Felicia and her two other babies will soon be ready for adoption too.

I just want to know that someone really loves me.

For Coco, who had reportedly been bored and lonely for 10 years in a loveless home, volunteers and Pet'ographique added pearls for her new portraits to emphasize that she is a jewel, an undiscovered treasure, who loves unconditionally. 

Coco is a warm-hearted Bully mix, spayed, and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

She so craves attention that her eyes sparkle when you say her name or direct a kind comment her way. 

Please help us find Coco a home where she will be cherished.

Hudson is a soulful, kind boy yearning for consideration. 

He is humble and friendly, and occasionally sporty, a good-looking Chihuahua, about 8 years of age, neutered, and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA.

Hudson was found on the streets and his previous owner refused to reclaim him. 

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for these cute portraits to help score Hudson a loving, forever home.


Cersei is a sunny, well-behaved young girl debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

She is a beautiful Border Collie & Shepherd mix, 2 years of age and spayed, housetrained and crate-trained. 

Cersei loves kids and she gets along well with some dogs. 

At the time of her rescue in the spring, she was emaciated and we placed her in a loving foster home for recovery. 

Tests show she has a pancreatic enzyme deficiency.  Cersei takes medication twice-daily with her meals (and the medication is inexpensive). 

An active lifestyle is ideal for this robust and radiant youngster.

What does it feel like to be loved?

Kona is a gentle Shih-Tzu and he's adjusting to being blind.

He debuts for adoption today at Nevada SPCA and we ask for your help in finding him a hero.

Kona's past is mostly unknown.  He was surrendered to a veterinary hospital in extremely poor condition from unconscionable neglect.

Besides matting and other problems, both of his eyes ruptured and could not be saved.

Kona is about 6 years of age and neutered.  Other dogs help him feel at ease and move around, so we strongly prefer adopting him to a home where he will have a sister or brother canine for support and guidance.
