Spongebob is a baby rooster who loves everyone -- adults, kids, birds, pigs, dogs -- and he already has the confidence and self-esteem of a lion.
Last week schoolchildren on a tour of Nevada SPCA enjoyed petting him and feeding him seeds.
Spongebob needs a forever home where he will be safe, appreciated, and part of a social family. Please ask for him by name at Nevada SPCA.
He needed us when his previous owner did not want him or his baby sisters anymore.

He is a handsome brown tabby with white, about 8 months of age, neutered, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

John Wayne could hardly be any cuter. He is a sweet, young calico guinea pig, about 18 months of age, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.
Please ask for John Wayne by name in our Lovebugs Room.
He had apparently been abandoned outdoors and crawled into a backyard where a man noticed his Chihuahuas circling and wrangling him. The dogs did not hurt him, and instead effectively saved his life, as he stood no chance of survival outdoors alone.

They are Chihuahuas, now 3 months of age, spayed/neutered, and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA.
We rescued their mother Lullaby, pictured below. She was in labor and a deformed puppy inside of her had blocked her from giving birth. Lullaby's previous owner was unable to provide medical care to save her life.
We rushed Lullaby into a veterinary hospital for an emergency C-section. The veterinarians were able to save mom (Lullaby) and two of her babies, who we named James and Majesty.
Lullaby has since been spayed and adopted into a loving home. Now its her puppies' turn to find owners who will cherish and adore them every day for the rest of their lives.

Sabrina is a beautiful jewel and her gentle spirit has been captured wonderfully in this brand new portrait courtesy of Pet'ographique (www.petographique.com).
Sabrina only wants to be loved and to have peace-of-mind, so a calm and affectionate home environment is ideal for her.
She is a lovely shorthair with crisp blue eyes, about 7 years of age, spayed, fine with other respectful cats, and awaiting adoption at Nevada SPCA.
She did nothing wrong to become homeless. Instead, her previous owner moved into an apartment that does not allow cats.

For Dawn, a cheery and light-hearted girl, life is like a picnic.
Pet'ographique captured her personality beautifully in this brand new portrait to help Dawn find a loving, forever home.
She is a Peke-A-Poo (Pekingese & Poodle), about 5 years of age, spayed, housetrained, crate-trained, good with dogs and older kids, and ready for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Lady MacBeth relishes being pampered and reassured.
Loving attention now for her is in stark contrast to what she has endured. At the time of rescue her right eye was terribly maimed, her left ear had collapsed, many of her teeth were missing, and she had been declawed.
Lady MacBeth though is a survivor, and she is recovering well. Her right eye could not be saved and her left ear will not return to normal shape. But her spirits are brightening and we want her to have a lifetime of great love and comfort.
Lady MacBeth is a Himalayan cat, about 9 years of age, spayed, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.
Jazzy sparkles with joy and dazzles us with his amazing smile. We love his sunny personality.
He is a Yellow Labrador Retriever mix, about 7 years of age, neutered, great with dogs and people, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.
He is recovering beautifully from a horrific past. He was one of the two dogs living in deplorable conditions at an abandoned home who had been the victim of tazering, as featured on 8 News Now TV on January 12th. He was transferred to us from another shelter to address his medical needs (and the other dog was also transferred to a reputable rescue group).
Jazzy is ready to experience what a loving home feels like!
Brutus is a very handsome, young Standard Poodle debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.
He is sensitive, and shy with new people, but loving and warm-hearted with those he knows and trusts.
A gentle home with someone knowledgeable about Standard Poodles is ideal.
Brutus is 1 year of age, housetrained and crate-trained, neutered, fine with some dogs, and he needs regular professional grooming care.
Please ask for Brutus by name when you visit.

Nicknamed "The Aloha Puppies" due to their Hawaiian names, these brothers are playful and loving and enjoy squeaky toys and cuddling together in doggie beds.
They are unique Heinz 57s, perhaps with Chihuahua and Terrier, expected to remain small (or grow to medium size at most). They are now 3 months of age, neutered, and ready for adoption.
Please consider adopting a pair for lifelong love and companionship.
Dee Dee would love to be your personal assistant, helping you around the house as much as she can, always being near and loyal.

A veterinarian witnessed someone throwing this gorgeous boy out of a car behind a veterinary clinic.
Fortunately, he was not injured, and he joined us at Nevada SPCA to find someone who will love and cherish him, and never discard him again.
We named him Bisco and he is a Lynx Point Siamese with crossed blue eyes, and he is now about 18 months young and neutered.
Bisco prefers to be the only cat, so please be sure to ask for Bisco by name when you visit.
Thor would like nothing more than to shower your face with puppy kisses!
Like Noel posted yesterday, we rescued him shortly before Christmas to save him from the deadly parvo virus when his previous owner could not afford medical care. Using holiday donations, we had extensive medical care provided for Thor and he made a full recovery.
Thor valiantly debuts for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. He is a Chihuahua puppy, neutered boy, 5 months of age, super sweet and affectionate.

Noel needed a Christmas miracle.
It was just a handful of days before Christmas and she was very sick with the deadly parvo virus. Her previous owner could not afford any medical care for her and surrendered her to us so we could try to save her life.
We rushed Noel into a veterinary hospital, and after extensive treatment, she triumphantly made a full recovery.
Today is the day this baby angel has been waiting for -- her debut for adoption at Nevada SPCA.
Noel is a Chihuahua puppy, now 9 months of age, spayed, and blessed with a gentle and loving spirit.
We love Pet'ographique's brand new portrait of Sabie, capturing her docile nature and gorgeous blue eyes.
Sabie is a young Siamese, compatible with cats & dogs & older kids, spayed, about 18 months of age, and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA.
She needed us when her previous owners moved away and did not take her with them.
Please ask for Sabie by name in the free-roaming Cat Condo playrooms.

Twinkie is the tiniest of dogs -- only 3 pounds! -- but he has enormous unconditional love to share with you.
He is a super cute, super sweet Yorkshire Terrier, neutered boy, 10 years of age, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.
Another shelter asked us to rescue Twinkie because of his dental needs. We had his teeth cleaned and he is now ready for a forever home.
An experienced home is required for his safety due to his exceptionally small size.
Leo's more light-hearted nature is celebrated in this brand new portrait from Pet'ographique.
We are so proud of this little guy for trusting us and becoming more affectionate, despite a past full of cruelty and neglect. Volunteers and staff have been helping him recover emotionally for months, and now he is triumphantly ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA.

Celine relishes being cradled and reassured.
She is 12 years of age, a very gentle calico, and her world turned upside down when her previous owners abandoned their foreclosed home and left her behind in the neighborhood to fend for herself. At the time of rescue she had returned to the home, entered through the doggie door, and was attacked by two dogs (owned by the home's new owners). She is recovering well from the wounds, including a large cut under her left eye, but her heart is shattered and we are in overdrive consoling her out of severe depression.
Celine debuts for adoption today at Nevada SPCA and she has enormous devotion to offer you. Please be her hero and always keep her safely indoors, loved and cherished.

Of the two, Alvin is the more outgoing and chatty, while Theodore is more relaxed and affectionate.
They are good-looking tabbies with white boots, neutered, about 7 months of age. Their previous owner said he could not afford them.
Please kitten-proof your home for their safety and protection. Please consider adopting them together, but they can be adopted separately.

Donald was devoted to his previous owners, and he is understandably distraught to lose them (when they moved and did not take him).
But Donald is warming to us a bit more each day and he is ready to join a new family where he will never have to worry about being homeless again.
Donald is a handsome duck and he needs people to survive, as he cannot fly (his wings are clipped) and relies on people for companionship and food.
If you are knowledgeable about ducks and would like to meet Donald and consider adopting him, please ask for him by name at Nevada SPCA.
Scooter is a snuggly pup with a gentle temperament.
He is a very good-looking Italian Greyhound mix, just 10 months of age, neutered, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.
Scooter gets along very well with other dogs and Italian Greyhound knowledge is preferred for his adoption.
Another shelter which ran out of space asked us to take him and several others, which we were happy to do.

"Adopt me and I am ready to celebrate!"
Mickey would love to start the New Year off with a loving home. But at 13 years of age, he keeps getting overlooked by people looking for puppies and younger dogs.
Mickey has a lot to offer though, in addition to a world full of unconditional love. He is great with other dogs, housetrained, sweet and dignified.
Pet'ographique took this fun portrait to help Mickey attract new attention.
Mickey lost his previous family last year when they moved out of the country.

"My suitcase is packed and I am very ready for a forever home!"
This amazing portrait from Pet'ographique is really a celebration of Elroy's triumph over abuse. At the time of rescue he was a wounded soul, nipping at people for getting close to him.
Now, Elroy leaps into your arms with his dazzling smile and gives you doggie kisses. Staff and volunteers, over many months, helped him realize that people can be worth loving and trusting.
Elroy is a sunny Chihuahua, about 4 years of age, neutered, and awaiting adoption at Nevada SPCA.
