I am such a good girl. How could they throw me away?


Update: Bella was adopted on November 20th!

It is ironic that humans are considered the "higher beings" when dogs are the ones most able to give the ultimate gift -- unconditional love.

Bella, a well-behaved, jolly girl who gives kisses, lost her home due to the following excuse: "too large for house".

But on the bright side, this is Bella's opportunity to find a committed, proper new home where her love will never be taken for granted again.

Bella is a plump Beagle mix, spayed, about 6 years of age and very young at heart.

Besides being good with other dogs, she is reportedly housetrained.

Please feed her canine food (instead of human food) to help her trim off some weight.

Bella debuts for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Is everything going to be okay for me?

Update: Ashlin was adopted on June 30th!

Ashlin's
eyes reveal her anxiety.

A victim of severe neglect, life seems quite serious to her.

At the time of rescue she was a bundle of knots and matted filth. We had her professionally groomed and she now sports a Poodle cut.

But Ashlin is actually a Bichon Frise. She is spayed, just 2 years of age, and debuting for adoption today.

We believe Ashlin will do best in a quiet, gentle home. Please plan and budget for regular professional grooming care.

She is compatible with other sweet dogs. In fact, we suspect she will gain self-esteem and confidence faster with another dog (or dogs) in the home.

I give kisses to loving people.

Update: Christie Brinkley was adopted on July 3rd!

Christie Brinkley
is a gorgeous, adventurous youngster.

Besides dogs, she is reportedly compatible with cats and kind children of all ages.

Christie Brinkley is a Terrier mix with stunning coloring, spayed, and about 2 years of age.

She is reportedly housetrained and crate-trained.

This well-behaved girl lost her previous family when they believed she had mange.

However, we had a skin specialist evaluate Christie Brinkley and she was diagnosed instead with food allergies (no mange at all). Now on a special diet, her skin and coat are looking terrific.

Christie Brinkley debuts for adoption today.

I do not want to lose another person I love.

Update: Ziggy was adopted on July 23rd!

Like countless other companion animals, Ziggy was dumped at a government shelter due to no fault of his own.

We rescued him from there and he debuts at Nevada SPCA for adoption today.

Ziggy is both affectionate and aloof, depending on his particular mood.

But Ziggy is always brilliantly attractive, a Longhair Dachshund with a winning smile. He is neutered and about 4 years of age.

Dachshund knowledge and/or experience is preferred for his adoption.

Ziggy enjoys other friendly dogs and needs regular brushing and grooming.

I will make every day a bit happier for you.

Rockwell debuts for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Thanks to you, we survived a terrible disease.

Update: Capone and Max were adopted on July 22nd!

These tiny brothers were in grave danger at the time of rescue, sick with the parvo virus. Their previous owner was unwilling or unable to pay for the emergency care needed to save their lives.

We had this care provided for them, and after extensive treatment, both made full recoveries.

Capone and Max are now having crazy fun, enjoying playtime with great zest and zeal.

Capone and Max are reportedly mixes of Boston Terrier and Chihuahua. The boys are neutered, approximately 3 months of age, and debuting for adoption today.

Please carefully puppy-proof your home and yard for their safety and protection.

Capone and Max can be adopted separately. But please consider adopting the boys together for lifelong companionship.

Our ability to save and protect innocent life is 100% dependent on caring people like you. Your financial support to Nevada SPCA is what allowed us to give Capone and Max the emergency care they needed. Please make an online donation today to empower us to save more animals' lives.

I got so lonely all by myself in the backyard.

Update: Loki was adopted on August 28th!

Imagine how agonizing it is for social dogs like Loki -- and all other dogs for that matter -- to be banished to living solely outdoors, unable to join and be with the people they love and depend on.

Then, dogs like Loki are dumped at shelters or in the desert because they develop "destructive" behaviors out of their desperate boredom and loneliness, many perishing each year at government shelters.

We believe dogs need indoor access so they can be proper, cherished members of their families. In our desert climate, this is not just an ideal, but a necessity for their comfort and survival.

Loki is ready to shine with loving care. He has a sugary sweet personality and he wants to be a lap dog to soak up your adoration, licking you in gratitude for letting him into your life.

He is a mocha Bully mix, neutered male, about 2 years young. Please plan on plenty of time with him daily, including lots of exercise. He may also do best with basic dog obedience training.

Loki debuts for adoption today.

I was thrown away at my time of greatest need.

Update: Recess was adopted on July 3rd!

This beautiful girl was abandoned in a school yard, pregnant and in great distress.

We named her Recess and found a loving foster home for her.

Her puppies are still in foster care, all doing well and getting socialization, and we expect them to be ready for adoption later this summer.

Recess has a gentle personality and she adores kind people giving her lots of attention and affection.

Recess is a petite Beagle, about 3 years of age, now spayed and debuting for adoption today.

She enjoys other friendly dogs. Please plan on plenty of walks and daily playtime with her. Beagle knowledge and/or experience is preferred for her adoption.

Monday, June 28, 2010

Every day of life is just that much more special because I am with my sister.

Update: Christy & Amelia were adopted on July 6th!

Christy & Amelia
are precious, tender-hearted girls with gentle natures.

The sisters are Shih-Tzus, spayed, approximately 9 years of age, debuting for adoption today.

We rescued Christy & Amelia from another shelter and, unfortunately, we do not have much background information on them.

But we do know they will thrive best in a calm home. Also, they are compatible with other sweet dogs and both need regular professional grooming care.

Christy & Amelia are very strongly bonded. They need to continue to remain together forever.

I am bursting with joy!

Update: Harley was adopted on July 5th!

Harley
is a super playful, athletic, fun-loving, and curious youngster debuting today for adoption at Nevada SPCA.

He is a handsome Chocolate Labrador Retriever, neutered male, 3 years young.

Harley is reportedly housetrained and used to living predominantly indoors.

We rescued Harley from another shelter. His previous owner gave no reason for surrendering him there.

We believe he will do best with dog obedience training. This will help channel his high energy levels into good behaviors.

Please visit and ask to spend time with Harley in our courtyard.

I hope to grow up and become as wonderful as my daddy.

Update: Milo & Bert were adopted on July 10th!

Father and son, Milo & Bert are lovable, comical guinea pigs who are grateful to be receiving good care, including clean water and fresh daily veggies.

They were rescued from a foreclosed home. They had run out of water and food, and mold was growing in their cage.

Both Milo & Bert have beautiful chocolate coats. They are perhaps Peruvian & American breed mixes. Milo, though a father, is still a baby himself at about 8 months of age. Milo is 2 months of age.

Milo & Bert need an experienced home because of their young ages. Please read up on guinea pig care and ensure you can make a lifetime commitment to them.

I look foward to a lifetime of snuggling with you.

Update: Ridley was adopted on July 10th!

At the time of rescue Ridley was a bundle of filthy, matted knots.

But underneath all of the mess and tangles, shaved away by a groomer, emerged this beautiful little sweetheart.

Ridley is most likely a Lhasa Apso & Miniature Schnauzer mix. He is a neutered male, 2 years young, and he debuts for adoption today.

He adores playing with other dogs and cuddling with kind people.

Please budget plenty extra for regular professional grooming care so that Ridley never has to fear or experience severe neglect again.

We are brothers and soul-mates, and belong together forever.

Update: Paxton & Pierce were adopted on June 29th!

Keeping soul-mates and bonded pairs together is an important part of our no-kill work for animals.

Our experience is that separating bonded animals can result in behavior problems and severe depression. But mostly, their joy and sense of belonging and security are wrapped up in large part in each other, and we respect and honor these strong relationships.

We rescued Paxton & Pierce from another shelter. They are brothers, neutered, very attractive Papillons, about 2 years of age.

Paxton & Pierce have sunny personalities, but they are shy with strangers. For gentle people who win their trust, the boys are quite warm-hearted and affectionate.

Please plan on and budget for regular grooming care.

Adopt me and my bright eyes will greet you every day.

We rescued Debi from another shelter.

Friday, June 25, 2010

How can I tell who is kind and who is cruel?

Update: Gracie was adopted on June 28th!

This puppy has been the victim of repeated beatings.

Unsure of people, and with very low self-esteem, the world does not seem like such a loving place.

But Gracie wants to believe in people. We hope this feature helps attract a gentle, caring, tender person or couple to help her emerge from her shell.

Gracie is a beautiful Pointer mix, spayed female, 9 months of age.

We rescued her from another shelter.

Gracie debuts for adoption today.

Adopt me for a lifetime of beautiful smiles.

Nemo

Please budget extra for regular grooming care.

Update: Stewart was adopted on June 26th!

Stewart is fortunate to still be alive.

Alone in an abandoned apartment for 3 weeks, he was starving and living in filth when found and rescued by neighbors.

But Stewart still believes in people. In fact, he adores humans, always ready for attention, and he loves to snuggle under your chin when you hold him.

Stewart is an American guinea pig with distinguished Calico coloring. He is approximately one year of age.

Please only consider Stewart (or any other companion animal) if you can make a lifetime commitment to him. In Stewart's case, this means being willing and able to care for him for the next 7 years, perhaps longer.

Stewart is available for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. Please visit and ask for him by name.

Who is going to love me forever?

Update: Baby was adopted on June 25th!

As you can see in his portrait, Baby's eyes carefully assess every new person, determining whether they bring kindness or cruelty.

He is a sensitive youngster, affectionate with gentle people he knows and trusts.

Baby was transferred to us from another rescue group. He is reportedly a Terrier & Border Collie mix. He is neutered, about one year of age, and debuting for adoption today.

Update: Tigger was adopted on June 26th!

Tigger's
positive outlook and happy disposition have served him especially well lately, especially when his previous owner died and he lost the only home he ever knew.

PB & Winson
are cheerful, jolly seniors.

Soul-mates, they are so strongly bonded it would be cruel to separate them.

PB is a girl, a Shih-Tzu of about 10 years of age. Winson is a boy, a Yorkshire Terrier of about 12 years.

Both PB & Winson are good with other dogs, and they are reportedly fine with kind children too.

In addition, both are reportedly crate-trained and experienced with doggie doors, but sometimes have accidents inside the house. (Housetraining is based on a stable lifestyle routine and positive reinforcement.)

PB & Winson debut for adoption today. Please plan to keep them together forever and budget extra for regular grooming care.

Tender-hearted and shy, little Susan feels most confident around soft-spoken, quiet-natured people.

She is a tender-hearted girl who will do best in a gentle home.

Honey Bun is a lovely Australian Cattle Dog mix, spayed, about 6-7 years of age.

She needed us because her previous owner lost the family home.

Honey Bun reportedly enjoys kind, mature children. Though reportedly housetrained, her previous owner admitted to keeping her in the backyard day and night, which is unacceptable in our desert climate.

Please be patient with Honey Bun and help her adjust to living predominantly indoors with you as a proper, adored member of the family.

I do the cutest "popcorn" dance.

Like all companion animals, Schroeder needs a committed, lifelong home. Please only consider him if you can commit to him joining your family for the next 7 plus years.

Please visit Nevada SPCA and ask for Schroeder by name.

I am trying to show you my magnificent personality.

Update: Rusty was adopted on November 5th!

The bigger dogs, especially mixed breeds, have such a harder time attracting adopters, even when they have beaming, fun-loving natures like Rusty.

Rusty came to us from another rescue because he was there a long time, mistakenly overlooked by their visitors.

We are hoping with his jazzy new portrait and web presence with us that we will score him a tremendous new home in short order.

We rescued Marley from another shelter.

He likes other well-behaved and friendly dogs, especially those who don't try to jump on him.

Addendum: Vance was adopted in July, but returned in September due to chasing cats and being nervous around young children when they try to touch his hind end or pick up his back legs.  His previous owner reported that he is housetrained, crate-trained,  good with female dogs his size, great on car rides, and superbly affectionate with adults.

Thanks to you, we have made beautiful recoveries.

Update: Ozzie & Harriet were adopted on June 19th!

Ozzie & Harriet
were dumped at a gas station. Both very sick with the parvo virus, they were weakly trying to scramble out of the way of vehicles.

We had extensive medical treatment for both Ozzie & Harriet and they made full recoveries.

They are Cocker Spaniel puppies, spayed/neutered, and approximately 6 months of age.

She is a jazzy, fun-loving, sometimes silly girl with a cheerful nature.

Roxy is a Cockapoo, spayed female, about 3 years young.

She adores other friendly dogs and needs regular professional grooming care. She is reportedly housetrained (with a doggie door).

We believe Roxy may do best in a home with another outgoing, sweet dog.

Please set aside plenty of time to play with her and shower her with affection daily.

I will try every day to be a shining light in your life.


Update: Boomer was adopted on June 17th!

Some media periodically report improvements in the economy, indicating that the home foreclosure crisis may be coming to an end.

But this is not our experience. Instead, we continue seeing increases in animals in need due to home foreclosures.

For example, Boomer is a magnificent youngster who needed us when his previous owner lost the family home.

He is a fun, friendly, goofy boy, full of innocence.

Boomer is a Yellow Labrador Retriever, neutered male, just 2 years of age, and he is debuting for adoption today.

He loves everyone. We know he is good with other dogs and he is reportedly compatible with cats and kind children of all ages too.

Please visit Nevada SPCA and ask for Boomer by name.
