Juliet & Viola, mother and daughter.

Juliet, and her daughter Viola
Viola (right) is a precious baby guinea pig who is just 4 weeks old and debuting for adoption today.

Fitting into this beautiful, crazy, big world is infinitely easier thanks to the loving guidance of her mom, Juliet.

 Guinea pigs are social animals and we want this mom-and-daughter pair to remain together forever for lifelong love and companionship.

At the time of rescue, Juliet, an Abyssinian, was pregnant and living in a neglectful home.

Please visit Nevada SPCA's (www.nevadaspca.org) Lovebugs Room and ask for Juliet & Viola by name.

Morrissey would love to leap into your life and loving home.



Morrissey's outgoing personality and very handsome appearance has been captured wonderfully in these beautiful portraits courtesy of Pet'ographique. 

While adventurous, Morrissey likes to get completely relaxed for his naps, stretching his body out on his bunny condo loft. 

Morrissey is a Lop & Lionhead mix rabbit, neutered boy, 2 years young, ready for adoption in Nevada SPCA's Lovebugs Room.

We rescued Morrissey after his previous owner abandoned him in the middle of the night on a sidewalk.

Amanda



Amanda is a polite, demure little lady who will thrive in a calm home environment.

She is a gorgeous medium-hair with emerald eyes, spayed, about 7 years of age.

Amanda adores people and she is compatible with other sweet cats.

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for these portraits showcasing her beauty and personality.

Newborn kittens urgently need a foster parent, please!


Update: These babies are now in a loving foster home receiving care.

Urgent request for help!  These four kittens need a foster home today.  They are just four weeks of age and still need bottle-feeding.  If you can help, please visit Nevada SPCA before 4pm and ask for Janean. 

These sweet babies were rescued from a cardboard box by an apartment complex dumpster, and believe it or not, the person who dumped them had written a sign on the box saying "God Bless".  Most fortunately, a compassionate person heard their cries before the trash truck arrived.

Do pet portraits get any cuter than this??!


Tinkerbell & Peter Pan.  They are a sister and brother team with wonderfully light-hearted natures and loving personalities. 

Pet'ographique captured these matinee idols in a portrait that rings true with their fun attitudes. 

Tinkerbell & Peter Pan are Shih-Tzus, 2 years young, spayed/neutered, great with other dogs, and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA (www.nevadaspca.org). 

They are soul-mates, so they need to remain together forever.

We rescued the pair from another shelter.

Firetruck

We are so proud of the recovery this sweetheart has made since his rescue.

Firetruck had been in an abandoned house that caught fire.  Neighbors, who did not know he was inside, saw him escape.

Fortunately, he had no major burns.  But besides being covered in soot and smelling of smoke, he was very traumatized and it took him a couple of days to calm down and accept our petting and care.

Though still shy, Firetruck is now trusting us and enjoying human touch and being spoken to.

Please ask for Firetruck by name when you visit.

Hannah, an affectionate Ragdoll mix ready for adoption.

If you are gentle and hold Hannah close, she will kiss your neck. 

Hannah is a gorgeous Ragdoll mix with an easy-going temperament, spayed, 1 year young, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Hannah's previous owner declawed her (all four paws), so it is especially critical that she enjoys the safety of an indoor-only home. 

Hannah needed us when her previous owners moved away without her.

Snoopy, a 4-pound puppy who survived being struck by a car.


Triumphant little Snoopy, a baby boy, is ready to share his unconditional love and entertaining personality with someone very special.

Thanks to extensive medical care and therapy, very generously paid for by a Nevada SPCA supporter, he has recovered from being struck by a car, which resulted in both legs on his left side being "de-gloved" (stripped of skin).

Snoopy's therapy at an advanced care veterinary hospital included weeks of hospitalization for daily re-wraps of his bandages and water therapy to help wash away dead skin cells.

Snoopy is a Chihuahua puppy, now 3 months of age and neutered, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.  He is wiggly and energetic, and sports the confidence of a lion.

Please ask for Snoopy by name.

I belong indoors only, please.


Omar Shariff had been abandoned at the airport parking lot.  He was so hungry and scared that he crawled right into the car of a Nevada SPCA volunteer with just a bit of coaxing. 

He has been fattening up in a loving foster home and becoming socialized with other friendly cats. 

Omar Shariff is now ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA.  He is a sleek shorthair, neutered boy, 4 years of age. 

Please be sure to ask for him by name.

Can I join your loving family?


Felipe is a handsome kitten with a gentle spirit and he craves attention.

Rescued from a hoarder, we believe another cat scratched his right eye.  The scarring is slowly reducing and he still has most vision in the eye.  A veterinarian who examined him believes the scarring may continue to diminish in size.

Felipe is a brown tabby, now 6 months of age, neutered, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Please kitten-proof your home for his safety and protection, and keep him always indoors as a valued and cherished member of the family.

Anthony & Cleopatra

Anthony

Cleopatra
These Chihuahua puppies were just 6 days old at the time of rescue, motherless and in emergency need.  We placed them into a foster home for bottle-feeding and other loving care.

Anthony and Cleopatra are now 3 months of age, spayed and neutered, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA (www.nevadaspca.org).

Both have affectionate natures and light-hearted personalities.

Anthony and Cleopatra can be adopted separately, but please consider adopting them as a pair for lifelong love and companionship.

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

Peanut Butter


Peanut Butter has been awaiting this special day for months -- her debut for adoption! -- while healing from severe wounds on her back and side from dog attacks. 

The veterinarian who confiscated her from an abysmal situation said that there were numerous other dogs in the home who had repeatedly attacked her. 

Peanut Butter is a lovely, friendly little lady, a Beagle, spayed, 6 years of age. 

Please come meet and adopt her at Nevada SPCA.

What does really being loved feel like?


Bart is now glowing and shining, so full of optimism that he will finally get to know what a loving home feels like. 

He is a Bichon Frise & Poodle mix, neutered boy, 5 years of age, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Bart was a filthy, matted mess at the time of rescue, but that neglectful past was shaved away when we had him cleaned and groomed. 

Bart enjoys other dogs and needs regular professional grooming. 

An adult-only home is strongly preferred.  He is very anxious about being picked up and still recovering emotionally from years of severe neglect.

Brownie dreams of a forever home.



Brownie is a dapper little gentleman who longs for a loving, forever home. 

Pet'ographique took these terrific portraits to help showcase his sweet nature and get him adopted. 

Brownie is an earnest Chihuahua mix, neutered boy, 5 years of age, housetrained, good with dogs and kids, ready for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

He needed us when his previous owners moved out of the country.

Foster homes for newborn, motherless kittens desperately needed!

Urgent!

These three baby angels are motherless kittens who need the tender touch of an experienced foster parent.  The sisters are under 4 weeks of age and still need bottle-feeding.

Another litter of newborns is coming in today who need bottle-feeding.

If you can help, please visit Nevada SPCA headquarters during operating hours and ask for Janeane: 11am-5pm Friday and Saturday, 11am-4pm Monday through Thursday.

Whether fostering one kitten who can eat on his or her own, or an entire litter who need bottle-feeding, your help is critically important and can save a life.

Thank you.

Saki loves to smother you with kisses.


Saki is a perfectly snuggly baby boy with a bubbly personality. 

He is a super cute, chocolate Poodle & Terrier mix, neutered, 3 months young, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Saki has been lovingly raised and socialized in a foster home after being rescued many weeks ago when he was a motherless newborn. 

He adores people and delights in covering your chin with kisses galore!

Rachmaninoff


Rachmaninoff is an adorable Russian Dwarf Hamster ready for adoption.

At the time of rescue he had been abandoned in a cage.

A foster mom's nurturing care saved Aaron.


Aaron is a cuddly, precious baby boy with a playful, adventurous nature.

He is a Chihuahua puppy, now 3 months of age, neutered, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

At the time of rescue, Aaron and his brother Roger were just 6 days old, motherless newborns in great need.  One of our staff took the boys into her care and bottle-fed them every few hours, day and night.

Both Aaron and Roger survived thanks to her nurturing, loving care.  She also socialized them with other species, including cats and rabbits and sugar gliders, to help become as well-adjusted as possible.

While Aaron is available for adoption now, Roger had a strong reaction to a vaccine, so he will be ready for adoption in the days ahead as he fully recovers.  Please puppy-proof your home and yard for their safety and protection.

Peep, a divine puppy who made an inspirational recovery.


Peep is an entertaining, divine baby girl who loves to stare into your eyes. 

She is a playful Shih-Tzu & Yorkshire Terrier mix puppy, 5 months of age, spayed, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

At the time of rescue Peep had severe and painful facial lesions from "puppy strangles" (juvenile cellulitis). 

Following 6 weeks of treatment, she made a full recovery!  We celebrated her triumph with this gorgeous portrait, courtesy of Pet'ographique

Peep is now ready to share her unconditional love and devotion with you for the rest of her life.

Hulk and Tugboat, super cute Schnauzer & Maltese mix puppies for adoption.

Hulk

Tugboat
Hulk and Tugboat are adorable, playful baby brothers with loving, kind spirits.

The boys are reportedly Schnauzer & Maltese mixes, about 5 months of age.  They are now neutered and debuting for adoption at Nevada SPCA.

Hulk and Tugboat needed us because their previous owner said she "could not get rid of" them.

Please plan on regular professional grooming and puppy-proof your home and yard for their safety and protection.

The boys can be adopted separately, but please consider adopting them together for lifelong companionship.

Chief needs a hero.


Chief has a gentle, unassuming presence that is especially endearing. 

We are proud of the progress this boy has made with trusting us and building his confidence.  This progress needs to continue in a new loving home. 

Chief is a handsome Chihuahua, neutered boy, 8 years of age, very good with other dogs, and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for this remarkable portrait to help Chief find someone special to love him dearly.

Precious!


Precious is an elegant older girl and her grace has been captured beautifully by Pet'ographique in this portrait donated to help her find a loving, forever home.

Precious adores gentle people and loves fetching her toys.

She is a Chihuahua mix with red merle coloring, spayed, 10 years of age, housetrained, compatible with other sweet dogs and mature kids, and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA.

Precious needed us when her previous owners moved away without her.

Please consider letting Precious join your family and she will show you daily gratitude forever-after.

Roxy, an inspirational Miniature Pinscher for adoption.


At the time of rescue Roxy was missing her front right leg and her left eye was so severely infected that it could not be saved. 

But Roxy's loving spirit keeps her focused on the present and she is happy to be alive and full of devotion. 

Cuddle with Roxy while you read a book or watch a movie and she is in heaven. 

Roxy is a Miniature Pinscher, spayed girl, about 4 years of age, housetrained, good with cats & dogs & older kids, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Roxy needed us when her previous owners divorced.

3 Border Collie mix puppies who need a hero.

Bell

Biv

Devoe
At the time of rescue these three sensitive baby boys were tied up on ropes on a farm/ranch outside of Las Vegas.  The farm's owner said someone had dumped them on his property.

The brothers are very attractive Border Collie mixes, now 6 months of age, and neutered, and finally ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA.  But they need a hero (or heroes) because they were not socialized and all new people and places absolutely terrify them.  They are responding to our staff and volunteers, but progress so far is slow.

We named them Bell, Biv, and Devoe.  

We believe they will adjust best with another dog in the home, ideally a mature dog with a calming, maternal or paternal nature.

Madame Butterfly, a Violet Point Siamese for adoption.


Madame Butterfly is a very gentle older girl who just wants to be loved. 

She looks up at us in gratitude, seemingly full of hope that her future will be brighter than her past. 

Madame Butterfly is a Violet Point Siamese, spayed, about 10 years of age, previously declawed, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Madame Butterfly had been abandoned in a foreclosed home and found in a very poor, neglected condition.  We had her severe matts shaved away and expect her coat to grow back beautifully now that she's eating premium food.

Quinlan, a Chinchilla for adoption.


Super cute Quinlan is a shy, gorgeous Chinchilla debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA in the Lovebugs Room.

Quinlan became homeless when his previous owners divorced.

He is about 5 years of age, gentle, and favors an occasional raisin for a special treat.

Because he is so timid, an experienced and knowledgeable home about Chinchillas is strongly preferred.

Xoloitzcuintli x puppies, brothers Alfonzo and Guido.

Alfonzo

Guido
Alfonzo & Guido are baby brothers with gentle spirits and they will melt your heart when you hold them or look into their pleading eyes.

The boys have enormous, lifelong unconditional love to share with you.

Alfonzo & Guido are Mexican Hairless Dog (Xoloitzcuintli) & Chihuahua mixes, now 3 months of age, neutered, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Their hair loss does not affect their general health.  Precautions need to be taken to prevent sunburns.  (We had a veterinary skin specialist confirm that their hair loss is congenital and natural.)

The boys are so wonderful together that we strongly prefer adopting them as a pair for lifelong companionship.  We don't generally require this with puppies and kittens, but these puppies have an especially strong bond.

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

Thursday, March 8, 2012

Dr. Jamie, a cream tabby kitten now ready for adoption.



Dr. Jamie is lovingly named after the veterinarian who saved her life. 

At the time of rescue, this little angel had severe leg fractures (to her hind right leg) and she was very ill.  The fractures were consistent with her falling a very long drop, such as from a roof or tree. 

Dr. Jamie's leg could not be saved, and it had to be amputated.  But she made a full recovery from the illness, and with loving care she is making an admirable adjustment to life on three legs.

She is a cream tabby kitten, now 4-5 months of age, spayed, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Dr. Jamie loves gentle petting and holding, and purrs loudly in your arms. 

Please ask for her by name when you visit Nevada SPCA.

Will you promise to keep us forever and never give up on us?

Colonel Cuddles

Sargeant Snuggles
These adorable, playful baby boys are loving and good-natured.

Colonel Cuddles and Sargeant Snuggles were found abandoned at just a few weeks of age.  We have been nursing and socializing them, and they responded beautifully.  The brothers are now 3 months of age, neutered, and debuting for adoption. 

They are Heinz 57s with stunning red coloring.  We expect them to grow only to small or medium size.

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

The boys can be adopted separately, but please consider adopting them together for lifelong companionship.

Jonelle would like to bless you with her sweet spirit.



If you prefer a calm and gentle older dog, will you please give consideration to Jonelle

Jonelle is a very sweet spirit, humble, and full of unconditional devotion she is very ready to share with you. 

Jonelle is a Boxer mix, medium size, spayed, about 8 years of age, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

We rescued Jonelle from another shelter.  She had a small eye growth at the time of rescue, which we had removed, and she has healed well.

Sandy, a sunny Basset Hound and Collie mix for adoption.



Festive and radiant, Sandy is blessed with a beautifully unique appearance and cheery personality.

She is a Basset Hound & Collie mix, just 2 years of age, spayed, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Sandy loves kids and adults.  She is good with dogs and reportedly compatible with cats too. 

She needs your kind guidance to complete housetraining.  (Her previous owner admitted to making her exclusively outdoors, which is unacceptable.)  She needs to live predominantly indoors as a cherished member of the family.

Joan's triumphant survival and recovery!


We celebrated Joan's triumphant survival and full recovery with this beautiful portrait, courtesy of Pet'ographique.

Joan is a wiggly, enthusiastic Shih-Tzu, spayed girl, 2 years young, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

At the time of rescue Joan had severe head wounds above her eyes, which her veterinarian believed were caused by a coyote or dog attack.  We thought she had lost both eyes because of the way her torn skin appeared at the time.

An exceptionally generous donor heroically paid for Joan's advanced medical care at a veterinary specialty clinic.  Joan has full function in both eyes and the permanent scarring looks like distinguished eyebrows.

Joan is a treasure and now she is ready to bless someone special with her unconditional love.

Blackjack, a previously declawed shorthair seeking a loving, forever home.


Blackjack is a devoted sweetheart who needed us when his previous owner passed away and he had nowhere to go.

Blackjack is a large, sleek shorthair, neutered, about 7 years of age, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

We believe cats should live indoors only for their safety and protection, and this is especially critical with Blackjack, who was previously declawed.

Blackjack is best as the only cat in the home.

Please ask for him specifically by name when you visit.

Please never let anyone throw me away again.


Crystal relishes being held and comforted. 

She is a docile girl who just wants to know she belongs in this world and that she is loved. 

Crystal is a sandy brown tabby, about 5 years of age, spayed, and now ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA (www.nevadaspca.org). 

Crystal's left eye has natural, beautiful speckles that do not impair her vision. 

We found her in an abandoned crate.

Please cuddle with me.


Gabbie is a terrific snuggler! 

You will be amazed at how much unconditional love this young boy has to share with you. 

Gabbie is an exceptionally sweet Aussie & Bully mix, neutered boy, 2 years of age, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.  He gets along very well with other dogs. 

We rescued Gabbie from another shelter just in the nick of time, with only hours to spare.

What does being loved feel like?


Guy is very timid and sensitive.  He shows signs of never being loved, as he has no self-esteem and worries that every new person he meets will start screaming at him. 

His previous owner said the reason he surrendered him was: "Can't stand him".  Guy was made to live outdoors, apparently without toys.

But this handsome young Chocolate Labrador Retriever is about to have a grand awakening!  Gentle care and patience will help him reach his full loving potential.  

Guy is 18 months young, neutered, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

The look of love in a rescued dog's eyes.


Harley gives us this heart-melting look and we just want to give him all of the love and security he deserves.  His eyes plead for love. 

Harley is an attractive Dachshund mix debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

He is 3 years young, neutered, housetrained, good with dogs, and enjoys playing ball. 

Harley needed us when his previous owners moved away without him.
