I am a lover, not a fighter.


Ocean is a macho young boy with a tough-guy appearance, but on the inside he is candy-sweet and he loves people. 

He is an attractive Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix, 2 years of age, now neutered and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

At the time of rescue he was losing a lot of blood from a head wound, consistent with a severe attack by another dog.  But Ocean is now healed and only wants to be a loverboy from now on. 

Please ask for Ocean by name when you visit.

I feel reborn!


Maverick was near starvation at the time of rescue, weak and emaciated.  Look at what a tremendous recovery he has made! 

Triumphantly, Maverick debuts for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.  He is a brown tabby kitten, 4 months of age, neutered, and good with other cats. 

Maverick adores people and purrs to his heart's content when you hold and cuddle him. 

He is so ready to share his unconditional love with someone who will make a lifetime commitment to him.

Please kitten-proof your home for his safety.

I'm a home run!

At the time of rescue she had been abandoned on the streets.

They say I am cuter than a cartoon.


Mickey is a sweet little 5-pound pack of dynamite with a heart of gold and a unique, wispy, Dr. Seuss-like appearance. 

He is a Chihuahua & Poodle mix, 1 year young, neutered boy, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Mickey was at another shelter, but too thin, and we were asked to rescue him.

Please ask for Mickey by name when you visit.

Let me be your lifelong treasure.


Godfrey is an angelic baby boy and he debuts for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

He is a blend of many breeds -- a cute Heinz 57, perhaps with Spaniel & Toy & Terrier, expected to remain small or grow to medium size.  Godfrey is about 3 months of age, neutered, and good with other dogs.

Another shelter asked us to rescue Godfrey from them because he had an ear infection.  We had him treated and he is now well and ready to join a loving, forever home.

Please puppy-proof your home and yard for his safety.

I was born this way and I count my blessings for all I have.


Lazer was born with a front right leg that is not functional for walking.  But we love his can-do spirit and valiant attitude, and he walks fine on three legs. 

Lazer is a loving young Chihuahua, about 1 year of age, now neutered and debuting for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

At the time of rescue Lazer was on the mean streets with no sign of responsible ownership. 

Lazer adores dogs and people and he offers so much unconditional love.

I was starving for kindness and understanding.


At the time of rescue, this beautiful girl we later named Eraser, was terribly frightened and fending for herself in a park.  She wanted nothing to do with humans. 

But as weeks went by at the shelter, her fears and animosity were erased. 

Now, Eraser can't wait to greet people, chat with them, and engage them for petting and attention. 

Eraser is a beautiful grey & white shorthair, about 5 years of age, spayed, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for this sweet portrait to help her find a loving, forever, indoor-only home.

Is love at very long last finally coming my way?


Lennon is a tiny sweetheart we rescued from a backyard breeder.  He was being used to "stud" the females for puppies to sell. 

But now he finally has the chance to find out what it feels like to be really loved (for his own sake, not his commercial value) and we don't want to let him down. 

Lennon is a friendly, handsome Chihuahua, about 5 years of age, great with other dogs, now neutered and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Hold me softly.


Dori feels loving peace in your arms, enveloped in kindness. 

She is a gorgeous Ragdoll, 4 years of age, spayed, previously declawed, and ready for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Dori craves affection and attention, so please be sure to have plenty of time to devote to her daily.   

She lost her previous home due to not getting along with the family's cat, but here we have seen her co-exist well with the other cats in the playrooms.

I worry you may never come home for me.


Dobie is an adorable Shih-Tzu pup debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

He is about 10 months of age, now neutered, and good with other dogs. 

Please plan and budget for regular professional grooming, as well as carefully puppy-proofing your home and yard for his safety. 

Dobie reportedly lost his previous home because he "dug holes in walls".  Crate-training may be a part of the solution if he was acting out of separation anxiety when left at home alone.  Experienced home needed please.

Does no one want to meet me?


Lavender's brand new portrait, courtesy of Pet'ographique, captures so much emotion and grace, and we just can't stop marveling at her.

Lavender has been waiting for a few months for someone to adopt her, but surprisingly, we cannot recall a single person ever even asking to meet her.

Lavender is petite, gentle, and great with other dogs.  She is a Chihuahua with an underbite so cute it gives her character, and she is spayed, about 8 years of age, and eagerly awaiting adoption at Nevada SPCA.

Please help us find Lavender a loving, forever home.

I am too old for who?


Malachi's eyes suggest great wisdom and serenity. 

So how it must break his heart to be dumped for being "too old".  But we are telling Malachi to keep his spirits up and that a loving, committed, forever home is on the way. 

Malachi is a 36-pound blend of many breeds.  He has the face of a Schnauzer, the body of a Retriever, the tail of a Husky, and human eyes.

He loves playing hide-and-seek with you and exploring new rooms.

Luxor is very shy with new people, but your relationship with him will grow and evolve daily with trust and affection.

This puppy is indeed a Miracle.


Miracle is a tiny, super cute firecracker triumphantly debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

His mother, a Miniature Pinscher, had been in labor for 3 days prior to rescue.  We rushed her into emergency care and her 3 babies were dead, but the veterinarians were able to revive one of them, this little boy. 

His momma rejected him, so a foster mom (one of our staff named Lara) bottle-fed him every few hours to keep him alive (through numerous moments when she thought he was declining). 

Now, Miracle is 4 months of age, neutered, socialized beautifully with cats & dogs & rabbits, and ready to join a loving, forever home.
