I did not know how I was going to feed my babies.

Penny Lane is a tender-hearted junior kitten -- 10 months of age -- debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Penny Lane is just a baby herself, but still old enough to have kittens of her own.  She was discovered in a box in an abandoned apartment, along with her five babies. 

Penny Lane is a Flame Point Siamese mix and now spayed and ready for a loving, forever home.  Her babies will be available for adoption too once they are old enough to be spayed/neutered. 

Please be sure to ask for Penny Lane by name when you visit.

Oso, a rescued Akita debuting for adoption.

No longer in pain, it has been wonderful to watch Oso's playful and friendly spirit emerge. 

He loves to stand or sit leaning into you for reassurance and bonding. 

Oso is a handsome Akita, about 5 years of age, neutered boy, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

At the time of rescue his right eye was severely bulging and in danger of bursting, causing him great distress. 

Akita knowledge is strongly preferred for his adoption. 

Please help us find a hero for Oso.

Candi, a young rescued Golden Doodle yearning for kindness.

If self-esteem hinged on beauty, then gorgeous Candi would have a world of confidence.

But Candi's previous owners reportedly abandoned their foreclosed home, left her in the backyard, in a state of neglect.  She holds her head low feeling worthless.

Neighbors stepped forward to save her.

We had Candi professional groomed, as well as spayed and micro-chipped.  She is a Golden Doodle (Golden Retriever & Standard Poodle mix), spayed girl, 3 years young, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

The neighbors who helped Candi said she is housetrained and good with mature kids.

She is very shy, but she will bloom in a stable, loving home environment where she knows she is cherished and valued as a member of the family.

I idolize my mommy.

Jill (left) thinks the world of her mother, named Mystic, and feels most secure when right behind her or at her side. 

They want and need to stay together forever because life has more meaning and joy when they face the world as a team. 

The girls are Dwarf mixes.  Jill is just 4-5 months of age, a "kit" (baby rabbit), and already slightly larger than her blue-eyed mom who is 18 months of age.  They are now spayed and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for capturing the beautiful spirits of mom and daughter in this portrait.

I feel revitailzed!

It is so gratifying to see Heather's fantastic recovery and she happily debuts for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

She is an outgoing, personable Shar Pei mix with blue-grey & white coloring, 2 years young and spayed. 

At the time of rescue Heather was emaciated from starvation and her lower eyelids folded inward painfully scratching her eyes (a condition called entropion). 

But now, after many weeks of recovery, she has gained weight and a zest for life.  Her entropion surgery was a success and the scarring under her eyes is minimal. 

Heather is ready for a loving, forever home full of laughs and smiles and attention, hopefully never knowing dangerous hunger again.

I was suddenly dodging cars at a gas station.

Girlfriend is a lovable baby girl trying to figure the world out and we want her to know love, stability, and peace-of-mind. 

At the time of rescue she was a very young pup scurrying around a gas station in distress. 

We placed her in a loving foster home for care and socialization. 

Girlfriend is still reserved with strangers, but she is affectionate and playful with those she knows and trusts.  Girlfriend is a beautiful Heinz 57 with sandy brindle coloring and gold eyes, expected to grow to medium size, about 4 months of age, now spayed and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

They say I have heavenly grace.

Do you remember Dusty, who was surrendered to us in December just a day or two before giving birth?  We appealed for help in finding her a foster home so she could have her babies in the peace and comfort of a home environment. 

Dusty was a good momma and despite being extremely traumatized by all the upheaval, she cared for her pups beautifully. 

Dusty is now spayed and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.  She is a very shy, gentle girl with majestic poise, about 18 months of age, a golden medium-size Shepherd mix.  Dusty is reportedly housetrained, crate-trained, and fine with very mature kids. 

Her puppies remain in foster care until they are old enough to be spayed/neutered.

You can see confusion and pain in my eyes.

The sensitivity and hardship revealed in Vinny's eyes can break your heart. 

But Vinny's story is one of triumph and progress.  Thanks to gentle volunteers and staff, he is flinching less when we touch his head and leaning against us to bond and feel reassurance. 

It's time for Vinny's progress to continue in a stable, loving, forever home with someone experienced and calm.  He is a medium-size Shepherd mix, 2 years young, now neutered and debuting for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

Please share Vinny's post to help find him a hero who will show him only the best of human nature.

You believed in me and you saved me.

When pooped out from chasing laser lights and climbing cat tree furniture, Fable likes to gently sit by his foster mom and watch TV with her. 

Fable is an adorable orange tabby kitten with white boots, about 5 months of age, neutered boy, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

At the time of rescue he was outdoors on his own, motherless, but terrified of people.  His foster mom has helped him bloom, and though still shy, he now enjoys human companionship and he is on the path to reaching his full loving potential. 

Fable needs an indoor-only home with someone experienced and patient.

My spirit is soaring!

Nina looks magnificent with her new haircut, unrecognizable from the matted, filthy mess of an appearance she had at the time of rescue. 

Emotionally, she is recovering well from neglect too, with a light-hearted spirit emerging. 

Nina is an adorable Toy Poodle mix, 2 years young, spayed, reportedly housetrained, and now ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

She enjoys other sweet dogs and needs regular professional grooming. 

Please ask for Nina by name when you visit.

I did not know how to survive on my own.

Anne is an incredibly cute, gentle baby bunny now ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

She is a beautiful English Spot mix rabbit, about 6 months of age, and spayed. 

Anne was rescued after being abandoned outdoors in a neighborhood.  Strangely, she had a collar embedded into her neck, which is wrong on so many levels. 

Please help us find Anne an intelligent, responsible owner who will keep her always safely indoors and cherish her as a valued member of the family. 

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for this very sweet portrait to help Anne.

I thank you even more for saving my babies.

Princess is an affectionate, grateful little beauty debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

She is a Chihuahua & Terrier mix with butterscotch & white coloring, about 5 years of age, spayed girl, good with other friendly dogs. 

At the time of rescue Princess had been surrendered to another shelter, along with her four month-old babies. 

We placed Princess and her puppies in loving foster care.  Princess is now ready for a forever home (and her babies will be ready in the weeks to come once they are old enough to be spayed/neutered).

Please help me forget what they did to me.

At the time of rescue this affectionate baby boy had been abandoned at a dump and his front left leg was so badly maimed that his leg could not be saved. 

But not only is Newt adjusting well to life on three legs, he is blooming and curious about everything.  Though discarded like trash, he is a wonderful treasure. 

Newt is a cute Bully mix puppy, 4 months young, now neutered and triumphantly debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.  It is important to puppy-proof your home and yard for his safety.

Please help us find Newt someone kind and stable and loving who will shield him from any further cruelty or rejection.

Do you have any kindness for me?

Tanka is an easy-going older boy who loves to gently chat with you and express his love for his wet food. 

He is a noble Lynx Point Siamese, about 12 years of age, neutered, good with other cats, and ready for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Tanka is blind in his left eye (birth defect) and at the time of rescue he was found unexpectedly in someone's garage, looking for warmth and shelter. 

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for this handsome portrait to help Tanka find a loving, forever home.

Do they feel any guilt when they think of me?

Lilly is so incredibly adorable and she almost looks like a cartoon or a toy. 

She is very innocent and kind, she worships people, and she gets along well with other sweet cats. 

Lilly is a petite orange tabby, about 8 years of age, spayed girl, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Lilly needed us when her previous owner abandoned her in an apartment.

Everything can change in an instant.

We rescued Priscilla from another shelter.  She was taken there after being in a semi truck accident south of Las Vegas.  Her previous owner was reportedly seriously injured (and is undergoing rehabilitation).  Priscilla had bruising and road rash, but no severe injuries. 

Please help us find her a wonderful home.

Kindness for me and my babies has meant everything to me.

Beautiful Bay is a petite, gorgeous young girl who loves to sleep on the bed right beside you. 

She is a blue & cream & white shorthair, 2 years of age, now spayed and debuting for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

At the time of rescue Beautiful Bay and her four newborn babies were on the streets trying to survive. 

A loving foster mom provided all of them with a comfortable home environment (and she is still caring for her babies until they are old enough to be spayed/neutered and prepared for adoption). 

The sweetest Chunky Monkey!

Chunky Monkey is a big scoop of love and volunteers and staff adore his sugary-sweet personality. 

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for this very cute portrait to help him find a forever home. 

Chunky Monkey is a blue, tan, & white Chihuahua & Jack Russell Terrier mix, about 3 years of age, neutered boy, available for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

He is great with other dogs and reportedly mostly housetrained.

They say I have a luminous spirit.

Kronos has brilliant radiance and cheerfulness.  This sweet boy brighten every room he walks into. 

He is a Siberian Husky, about 6 years of age, neutered, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Kronos is reportedly housetrained and fine with mature kids. 

We rescued him from another shelter and treated his ear infections.  His ears no longer stand up erect, likely due to repeated past ear infections. 

Please ask for Kronos by name when you visit.

I want you to really look at me, please.

Volunteers and staff repeatedly remark on how human-like Ricky's face is.  He looks at you deeply, trying to understand you, trying to make a connection with you. 

At the time of rescue this sweet boy was limping and we worried that he had been struck by a vehicle, but he had no broken bones and he's walking well on all four legs. 

Ricky is a light-chocolate & white Bully mix with golden eyes, 3 years young, neutered boy, now ready for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Ricky is good with other dogs and he would love to dazzle you with his fun personality.

I sat alone in the dark listening to the voices inside the house.

Why was this baby angel banished to living in the garage, day and night?  His name is Tiny and he is starving for attention and love. 

Tiny is a peppy Chihuahua mix puppy, 6 months of age, now neutered and debuting for adoption at Nevada SPCA.  Please puppy-proof your home and yard for his safety.

He enjoys other dogs and reportedly likes to play with mature kids too. 

Please let Tiny live predominantly indoors as a cherished, valued member of your family.

I meant less than the furniture, the clothes, the books, and the TV?

Zeka is a demure young beauty who is drawn to tender, kind, soft-spoken people.  She takes pleasure in the simple aspects of life, including finding cozy catnap spots in quiet places. 

Zeka is about 3 years of age, spayed girl, with multi-color eyes (heterochromia), and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Zeka needed us when her previous owners moved out of town and decided to leave her behind. 

Please help us find someone gentle and responsible so that she is never failed again.

Will someone love me if they can't make money by using me?

Carl is a soulful young boy who still looks forlorn even though his spirits have been improving dramatically since his rescue. 

No longer used as a breeding machine by a backyard breeder, his personality is starting to bloom and he often greets us with his morning dance (standing on his hind legs and making swimming motions with his front legs). 

Carl is a chocolate & white Chihuahua, 1 year of age, good with other dogs, and now neutered and available for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

Please adopt Carl and shower him with love and attention.

Do I dare believe that I am about to finally find love and adoration?

Fluffy was found running scared near one of the busiest intersections in Las Vegas.
It was clear he had been neglected for years and his teeth were rotten. 

Fluffy is now shaved and his teeth have been pulled.  Some sparks of hope are coming into his eyes and he is gaining weight steadily with soft food and treats. 

Fluffy is a very gentle Toy Poodle, about 10 years of age, neutered boy, debuting triumphantly for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

He is on daily medication for a heart murmur and needs a calm lifestyle routine.  Please help him find a hero.

Will you restore my faith in humans?


Botticelli is a calm-natured boy with a gentle spirit. 

He is a Shih-Tzu, about 10 years of age, neutered, and now available for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

Botticelli is humble and just asks for kindness and he gets along well with other sweet dogs. 

One of our volunteers found him abandoned in an industrial area of Las Vegas.  He is blind in his right eye and at the time of rescue he was very poor condition. 

Botticelli is bouncing back and he is so grateful to be out of the cold and to have a full belly and blankets to rest on. 

Please help us find him a hero for his twilight years.

Monday, February 18, 2013

I no longer feel so invisible.

Will you be my hero?


Nico is an incredibly cute little boy who loves to cuddle and be pampered. 

He is a Shih-Tzu, 4 years of age, neutered, housetrained, good with other sweet dogs, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Please help find Nico a hero who will cherish him as a treasured gem.

The boys are Scottish Terrier mixes, 2 years of age, neutered, housetrained, crate-trained, and compatible with dogs and mature kids.

Can you please make sure I never land on the streets again?

Lucy triumphantly debuts for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

At the time of rescue she had just been hit by a car, with the marks from a tire visible across her left back side. 

Lucy was in shock from the trauma, but the veterinary hospital confirmed that somehow she had escaped this close call with tragedy without any broken bones or severe injuries. 

Lucy craves attention and she is good with other dogs.  She is a Bully mix, about 3 years of age, spayed, and dreaming of a responsible, loving, forever home.

He is a noble, distinguished medium-hair orange tabby with golden eyes, 12 years of age, neutered boy, and ready for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

I could only relax once I knew I was safe.

Bambi is a tender-hearted, petite girl who is so confused about the roller coaster she has been on the past few days.  But she is safe now and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Bambi is an adorable Pekingese, 1 year young, spayed, and good with other dogs.  She was surrendered to another shelter, apparently for chewing.  (However, chewing is natural and necessary for dogs, especially those younger than 18 months.) 

The shelter she was at asked Nevada SPCA to rescue her because she was so terrified and shy. 

Volunteers and staff are working their magic and Bambi is gaining self-esteem and confidence. 

Please help us find a loving, forever home for Bambi.

I know that kindness is the secret to finding happiness.

Why did we become "unwanted" when we did nothing wrong?

Gabrielle & Xena are young, beautiful, sweet guinea pig sisters who are getting better each day about letting us handle them. 

Both are very gentle, crested guinea pigs, about 18 months of age, with stunning color patterns and expressive eyes. 

Guinea pigs are social animals and these girls are so strongly bonded that they need to remain together forever. 

Please visit Nevada SPCA's Lovebugs Room and ask for Gabrielle & Xena by name.

I will bless you with the world's greatest gift, unconditional love.

Many of the volunteers and staff are enamored with Glacier, a young and very kind girl who is awaiting adoption at Nevada SPCA.

She is a snow-white Bully mix with hazel eyes, 1 year of age, and now spayed. 

Glacier wants you to be pleased with her, so she responds well to basic training. 

Rescued from severe neglect, we were worried that Glacier would be wary to trust people again.  But she yearns to make a connection with people and we are proud of her for believing in people and giving humans a second chance.

I am beautiful on the inside too.

Minxy is a gorgeous, quiet-natured girl who would love to join your loving, forever home.

Where do I belong? Where am I going?

Beau's owner passed away and you can see that his heart is broken. He doesn't know life without his mom, nor how he is supposed to fit in. 

But we have Beau in the courtyard right now playing with two other dogs (Derby & Dazzler) and everyone is working on keeping his spirits up. 

Beau is a handsome Australian Shepherd & Collie mix, about 9 years of age, neutered boy, gentle and humble, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Beau's background is mostly unknown, but we know he led a relaxed, calm lifestyle with an older woman who adored him. 

 Please help us find Beau a wonderful new home.

I lost my ears to trick a buyer?

Bebe is a contented, beautiful girl and she is well-behaved, gentle, and playful. 

She is a blue, tan & white Staffordshire Terrier, 1 year young, spayed, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Bebe needed us when her previous owner passed away. 

She loves other dogs and she is reportedly compatible too with cats and children, as well as housetrained and crate-trained. 

We hate that someone cut her ears off, reportedly to sell her as a "Blue Razor Pitbull".  Personality certainly trumps breed designations, so it's a shame she was modified/maimed. 

Please help Bebe find a wonderful, loving, forever home.

Vinci, a young Yorkshire Terrier mix awakening to new hope.

Another shelter asked us to rescue Vinci because he was exceptionally shy and scared. 

Within a few days our volunteers and staff helped him realize he is safe and his personality is now blooming.
