Babs, the wonderful hugger.

Babs gives the best hugs.  She hangs her front paws over your shoulder and likes you to hold her against your chest, and then she purrs to her heart's content. 

Babs is a tortie-point Siamese who looks like an owl mixed with a teddy bear.  Her dramatic appearance is due to her collapsed ears, apparently the result of severe and untreated ear infections earlier in her life, and crossed blue eyes. 

Babs has diminished hearing due to the scar tissue in her ears. 

Babs is about 5 years of age, spayed, exceptional with people and other cats, and anxiously awaiting a loving, forever home.

Gomer, a Yorkshire Terrier for adoption.

Gomer is a delightful, super cute youngster with an endearing, affectionate nature.

At the time of rescue Gomer was dodging cars in one of the busiest streets in Vegas with no sign of responsible ownership (not neutered, no microchip ID, no ID tags). 

Gomer deserves better.  He has so much love to share.

Please plan and budget for regular professional grooming.

Wilson's revitalization.

Wilson's frown breaks our hearts, but we are working hard to get the sparkle back in his eyes.

Katlyn and her babies are now spayed and neutered and ready for adoption.

Katlyn, momma

Chloe, Clarissa, and Crystal, sisters

Clark and Carter, brothers
Katlyn and her babies have been in a loving foster home for 10 weeks preparing for this special day -- their adoption debut day.

Katlyn's previous owner said "she keeps getting out and getting pregnant".  At the time of rescue Katlyn's five kittens were just newborns, about 2 weeks old, and their eyes were still closed.

The kittens were in delicate health and Katlyn was traumatized.  We rushed them into foster care and within days their foster mom succeeded in winning Katlyn's trust and the kittens were stable.

Now, Katlyn, who is under 3 years of age, and her babies are spayed/neutered and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.  The kittens are 3 months of age.  Three are girls -- Chloe, Clarissa, and Crystal.  Their two brothers are Carter and Clark

Katlyn's loving, very sweet nature is apparent in all five of her kittens, who are also very playful and well-socialized.  Please consider adopting a pair, or trio, for lifelong companionship.

Joanie has a sparkling personality and infinite enthusiasm to share with you. 

She is a Bully & Boxer mix pup, spayed, 11 months of age, compatible with most dogs, and ready for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Presumably due to a birth defect, Joanie's nose and jaw slant in opposite directions.  But all indications are this is just cosmetic, as she eats and uses her mouth and nose normally, and this just gives her big, exuberant grins.

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

Elvis, a handsome Bloodhound debuting for adoption.

Elvis is gentle, calm-natured, and well-behaved, a humble older boy who hopes love will come around for him again so that he can spend his final years with dignity and grace.

Is it finally, finally, finally!, my chance to really be loved??

Spring's gloom is lifting and it is wonderful to see her spirit reigniting with hope for her future.

She is a calm-natured Shiba Inu mix, petite and spayed little lady, about 9 years of age, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

She valiantly survived a horrendous ordeal.  Her previous owner was breeding her for puppies, but refused to take her to a veterinary hospital when there were severe complications during labor.  We rescued Spring and rushed her into a hospital for an emergency C-section to save her life.

Spring is recovering well physically and emotionally, and her days of being a breeding machine are now, finally, over.

Please always keep me safely indoors where I will be loved and protected.

After being abandoned, Corky pleaded for food from house to house throughout his neighborhood, relying on the kindness of strangers to stay alive. 

 Now, this handsome, distinguished boy is safe with us and never having to worry whether he will miss a meal.

The Neil Diamond Girls are ready for adoption into a loving, forever home.

Cracklin' Rosie
Sweet Caroline
Cracklin' Rosie & Sweet Caroline are quiet-natured, gorgeous girls with amiable personalities.

They are very timid and we have to carry them from room to room.  They are gentle and just need to build confidence and self-esteem with socialization in a stable, patient home.

Their previous owner was battling a terminal illness the past several years and could not give them the care and attention they needed.  So they will need kind guidance to help adjust to a new home.

Cracklin' Rosie is a German Shepherd and Sweet Caroline is a Belgian Shepherd.  Both girls are spayed and about 8 years of age.

Please help us find a hero to adopt the pair and help them reach their full loving potential.

Please help us find Darren a hero.

At the time of rescue Rusty had just survived some sort of trauma and his spirit was muted in despair.

Rusty is a sweet senior, good with dogs, and reportedly housetrained.

These fantastic portraits of Rusty are courtesy of Pet'ographique.
