Tyler is young at heart, a snuggly senior with a colorful personality who asks for your consideration.  He needs a loving home. 

Tyler is exceptional with other dogs.  He is a tuxedo Dachshund mix, about 10 years of age and neutered, ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for these incredibly sweet new portraits to help spotlight Tyler.

He needed us due to his previous owners' financial hardship.


Cosette was at another shelter that asked for our help.  She was in medical distress with suspected seizures. 

We rescued Cosette and hospitalized her at a veterinary clinic that determined she was likely poisoned or otherwise ingested toxins. 

She has recovered very well, and during the past two weeks she has been monitored with no signs of seizures or neurological problems. 

But Cosette's emotional healing from abuse will take longer.  She is building self-esteem and realizing that she is safe from violence. 

Cosette has enormous loving potential.  She is a beautiful Terrier mix, 1 year young, spayed, and ready for a hero to adopt her at Nevada SPCA.

Mel, Washington, and Zoe

Mel, baby boy.

Washington, baby boy.

Zoe, baby girl.
Mel, Washington, and Zoe were rescued from a person handing out kittens to strangers in a large department store parking lot. 

We placed them in a wonderful foster home for nurturing care and socialization. 

The babies are now 3 months of age, spayed/neutered, and debuting for adoption at Nevada SPCA.

Mel purrs loudly in your arms and enjoys snuggling. He plays a bit rough, which is ideal with his brother (Washington), but maybe too much for a young child.

Washington is a bashful kitten with captivating eyes (ocean-blue with gold speckles). He is still building confidence and feels most at ease around his brother (Mel).

Zoe likes to try and "catch" the sunbeams coming through the windows. She is quite social and wants to know where are you in the house. If she can't find you, she might cry for your reassurance. A calm home environment is ideal for her.

Midnight, Noche, and Pumpkin

Midnight, baby boy.

Noche, baby girl.

Pumpkin, baby boy.
Midnight, Noche, and Pumpkin have been very lovingly raised and socialized in a foster home since their rescue. 

The babies are now 3 months of age, spayed/neutered, and debuting for adoption at Nevada SPCA.

Midnight adores other cats and needs a calm home environment with adults. Children and strangers frighten him. He has extra toes (polydactyl), which help him bat at his toys during playtime.

Noche's favored activities include chasing toy balls with jingle bells inside or sitting in your lap for petting. She loves exploring new rooms and enjoys other cats.

Pumpkin is very social and may follow you around the house to be in your presence. He is a remarkable athlete and can jump to places you'd never consider, so carefully kitten-proofing your home is of special importance.

Betsy and Bernice

Betsy and Bernice are darling baby sisters rescued from abandonment in a dumpster. 

They are wonderful treasures, playful and engaging kittens who give kisses when you hold them. 

The girls are now 4 months of age, spayed, and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

Betsy has flame point coloring and Bernice has tortie point coloring (charcoal, cream, white) and extra toes (polydactyl). 

Both are exceptional with other cats and eager to begin their new lives with people who will treasure and protect them.

Harriet is a humble girl who asks for so little. 

In return for your kindness though, and lifetime commitment, she will devotedly bless you with years of unconditional love and adoration. 

Harriet is a Basset Hound & Beagle mix, 5 years of age, spayed, good with other dogs, and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for capturing Harriet's goodness in these new portraits.


Ocean is an earnest, bright-eyed gentleman who craves attention. 

He was found abandoned outdoors, with no sign of responsible ownership, declawed (front paws), and in poor condition. 

Ocean is bouncing back to good health well, eating premium food and enjoying being showered with loving reassurance by volunteers.  He is 4 years of age and now neutered and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

Ocean will greet you at the door when you return home.  We believe he will do best in a home as the only cat so that he doesn't have to share you with others.
