Lance is eager to be adopted into a loving, forever home and he was a good sport to don a sailor cap and pose for this very fun new portrait at Pet'ographique.

Lance is a zippy, sweet Yorkshire Terrier mix, neutered boy, 3 years young, ready for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

He is great with other dogs and needs regular brushing and grooming.

Lance has been with us for many weeks now, but it is a mistake to overlook this adorable boy.

Is the world ready for me?



The face of mischief!  Rainbow earned her name with her colorful personality and unabashed zest for life.

Please adopt Rainbow for a lifetime of entertainment and she promises you not a single dull day.

Am I worthy of being loved?

Please adopt Dorito and make sure he knows every day that he is adored and loved.

My wounds have healed and I am ready to share my love with you.

Gulliver, an adorable Chinchilla for adoption.


Gulliver steals hearts and we are defenseless to the charms of this exceptionally friendly, warm-hearted Chinchilla who is so wonderfully socialized. 

Gulliver adores humans and likes to be held close to you gently.

He is a noble orange tabby, medium-hair, neutered boy, about 10 years of age, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

But Bullet has healed well and can walk and function normally. 

Please always keep him indoors, loved and safe.

I desperately need a new mommy.


Bubblegum is just 3 weeks of age, fragile and sweet, and he needs a surrogate mom (a foster parent).

She is a senior Labrador Retriever, about 10 years of age, spayed, good with other dogs, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

We deeply appreciate and depend your support!

But this sweet, dainty boy is making a steady recovery and his progress will need to continue in a gentle home.

Muggs is about 2 years of age, neutered, housetrained, and crate-trained, and his rowdy charm is irresistible. 

He loves those he favors with all of his heart, but he can be stubborn and protective toward strangers, so an experienced, adult-only home is needed for him. 

Muggs may be best as the only pet in the home.  An ideal owner for him will have English Bulldog (or Bully) knowledge.

He needed us when his previous owner moved out of town.

The park ranger saved us from certain death in Red Rock.

Ward, father

The Beaver, son

Wally, son
A park ranger rescued these three attractive Teddy Bear Hamsters who had been abandoned in a cage on a trail in Red Rock Canyon. 

All three are very friendly and gentle and are stunningly cute.  Ward, is the father, and his two sons, The Beaver and Wally, are about 4 months of age.

The boys get along wonderfully.  Despite being known by some for preferring to be solitary, we would like to see them adopted as a trio, or the babies adopted as a pair, for lifelong companionship.

Please ask for them by name in Nevada SPCA's Lovebugs Room.

I guess I was wrong to have believed in them. They left me behind.


Teal is full of personality and playfulness. 

Named for the blending of her two eye colors -- blue & green -- which is rare in cats and then usually only occurs when they are all-white in color -- Teal is beautiful on the inside too and wonderfully sweet.

Urgent -- 36 newborn kittens need loving foster parents!



Amanda is just 3 weeks of age. She and her 5 siblings were abandoned in a box behind a grocery store.

I was starving and in danger from coyotes.


We have no idea how this beautiful young girl survived in a desert area just south of Las Vegas which is heavily populated with coyotes. 

Residents in the community there saw her from time to time on a small mountain for more than a month.  She was starving and just skin and bones, but they could not catch her.  They feared the worst hearing the howls of the coyotes at night, knowing that she was ever weaker and less able to defend herself or outrun them.

A woman who is a friend of the organization and actively involved in animal rescue brought this situation to our attention.  We assured her that if the dog could be caught that we would be sure to make room for her at Nevada SPCA and give her all of the rehabilitation she needs.

Finally, a volunteer heroically caught the dog and brought her to Nevada SPCA and we named her Megan

Megan is a Vizsla & Rhodesian Ridgeback mix -- she has a ridge pattern on her back just like the latter breed -- with captivating gold eyes.  She is now spayed, 2 years of age, gaining weight steadily, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Megan needs a gentle, experienced home where her physical and emotional recovery from her abandonment can continue.  Please ask for her by name when you visit.

She needed us when her previous owner became severely ill and could no longer care for her.

I do not want to live in a garage ever again.


Wilson is a friendly, playful, dignified fellow.

He is a handsome Chihuahua, neutered, about 4 years of age, and he gets along wonderfully with other good-natured dogs.  He also reportedly is compatible with cats and mature kids.

Wilson's previous owner admitted to forcing him to live in the garage, which is unacceptable for so many reasons.  Please be patient with him and provide kind guidance so that he can live primarily indoors with you as a cherished member of the family.

Wilson debuts for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Gold Star, a Collie & Golden Retriever mix debuting for adoption.
