I am 6 pounds of gigantic, unconditional love!


Trinket is a tiny, 6-pound kissing bandit! 

He loves people and wants to make sure you know how grateful he is for kindness. 

 Trinket's past appears to have been a rough one. He was at another shelter with minor ear and head wounds after having been plucked off the streets. 

Trinket is now healed (though a small chunk of his right ear is missing) and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

He is a blond Chihuahua, about 4 years of age and neutered, and great with other dogs.

I was suddenly homeless and alone with nowhere to go.

Sassy is a 14-year-old angel who needed us when her previous owner passed away and she had nowhere to go. 

She is an elegant, mellow senior, a medium-hair tortoiseshell, spayed girl, who loves to snuggle. 

Sassy is very enthusiastic for her wet food (canned cat food) and jumps in your lap to be brushed and spoken to gently. 

She gets along well with other cats too. 

Please help us find a hero for Sassy.  She debuts for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Can you make sure the people who adopt us are kind?

Dandy
Honey Bee
Honey Bee and her brother Dandy are incredibly adorable puppies debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA (www.nevadaspca.org). 

The only thing we know about their past is that a police officer confiscated them from someone's home or yard for unknown reasons to save them. 

Both have loving natures and get along well with other dogs.  They are Bully mixes, expected to grow to medium size, now 3 months of age, spayed/neutered, and ready for wonderful, forever homes where they will be cherished as valued members of a family.

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

Foster homes urgently needed today for 8 very young rescued puppies.

We urgently need loving foster homes today for 8 very young rescued puppies. 

Please visit Nevada SPCA in person before 4pm and ask for Lara if you can help. 

Sherry, pictured here, is one of four Chihuahua puppies about 1 month of age rescued from a person who was getting rid of them in front of a grocery store.  The puppies were panting in the sun and getting dehydrated. 

In addition, we have three rescued Border Collie mix puppies and a Bully mix puppy who also need foster homes. 

Please help us reach people today so we can find heroes for these babies.

Please hold me and tell me I am going to be fine.

Poochie feels secure in your arms, grateful for the comfort, and he's likely to sneak you with a doggie kiss every now and then. 

He is a cuddly young Terrier mix, 1 year of age, neutered boy, now ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

Poochie is good with other dogs and he is drawn to gentle people. 

Another shelter asked for our help because he was very shy, but Poochie is now building and confidence and self-esteem, thanks to volunteers working with him, and he's making good progress daily. 

I'm a baby too. Why didn't they want me?

Aragon is a very sweet prince, a king in the making, still a kitten at about 10 months of age. 

He is an orange cream tabby, now neutered and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.  Please kitten-proof your home for his safety. 

Aragon likes giving you kitty kisses on your chin.  He gets along well with other cats and finds the strings toys the most fun during his play sessions. 

Aragon's previous family surrendered him due to no fault of his own and cited their newborn baby as the reason for giving him up.

I am reaching deep to find the strength to take on a new day.

Greta's story is heartbreaking, but she is well on her way now to a happily forever after, as she debuts for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

She is a beautiful, young Terrier mix with expressive, golden eyes, 1 year of age, and now spayed. 

At the time of rescue Greta was at another shelter.  She had just given birth, but she reportedly had been found in the streets, alone, with her babies nowhere in sight. 

The shelter asked for our help because she was so depressed she did not want to eat.  We rescued Greta and volunteers immediately set to work reviving her spirits and will to live by comforting her and reassuring her that better days were soon ahead. 

Greta is now eating full meals and lifting her head a bit higher each day. 

Please help Greta find a hero who will shower her with adoration.  We look forward to the day when Greta returns for a visit to show off a magnificent smile and sparkling eyes!

I could hear them laughing inside, but they wouldn't let me in the house.

Trixie Rose is an exceptionally affectionate, captivating little lady debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

She is a cream & white Chihuahua, spayed, about 5 years of age, good with dogs and mature kids. 

Trixie Rose is very social and enjoys being close to you.  Unconscionably, her previous owners admitted to making her live outdoors only, day and night, which is completely unacceptable. 

Please patiently help her adjust to living mainly indoors, knowing she is a cherished and valued member of your family.

Promise to tickle my tummy every day!

Mary's foster mom says she sleeps on her back like a human infant and delights in getting slow tummy tickles. 

Mary is an adorable baby girl debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.  She is a chocolate & white Bully mix puppy with hazel eyes, 3 months of age and now spayed. 

According to her foster mom, Mary loves kids and dogs and adults, but she can't be around cats. 

At the time of rescue earlier this year Mary was a newborn without a mother and we placed her in a foster home until now for nurturing care and socialization. 

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

Do you like the new me? Will you consider adopting me, please?

We find Rocco to be a remarkably endearing boy.  He is thoughtful and humble, and just so relieved to be cared for and treated respectfully. 

He was so severely neglected that another shelter asked for our help.  We rescued Rocco, and underneath all of the tangled and dirty hair, once cleaned up and shaved, was the super sweetie you see now. 

Rocco debuts for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.  He is a Toy & Terrier mix, under 2 years young, neutered boy, and he is great with other dogs. 

We want to find him a terrific, stable home where he is showered with adoration.

Is there good in the world for me and my babies?

Joy is a tender-hearted, kind young momma who hopes for better days ahead for herself and her babies. 

In February, Joy and her three newborns were dumped by a man, along with two other adult dogs, because he said he "can't deal with them". 

We placed Joy and her puppies in a loving foster so she could raise them in a comfortable, peaceful home environment. 

Joy's puppies are now weaned (and will be ready for adoption later this spring) and Joy is now spayed and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

She is a small Longhair Dachshund & Spaniel mix, 3 years of age, and good with other dogs. 

Please help us find Joy a forever home with someone responsible, stable, and gentle.

Promise to be patient with me.


Shelley is a sweetheart puppy who gives you puppy kisses and she debuts for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

She is one of the "Wrinkle In Time Puppies" who you may remember from a previous post -- rescued Shar Pei mix babies placed in loving foster homes for care and socialization. 

Shelley is now 3 months of age and spayed, expected to grow to medium size. 

(Some of her siblings have already been adopted and two of her brothers will be neutered and ready for adoption in the days to come.) 

Please make a lifetime commitment to her and give her kind guidance and patience.

What does it feel like to be adored?

Elvis dances on his hind legs when he is especially happy and greeting you. 

He is a soulful Bichon Frise & Poodle mix, about 5 years of age, neutered boy, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA, and he is great with other sweet dogs. 

We rescued Elvis from another shelter. He was a matted mess and one of his teeth was painfully broken, but he is now cleaned up, well with dental care, and ready to start a new life with lots of love and promise.

Please ask for Elvis by name when you visit.

Hold me, look in my blue eyes, and tell me I'm yours forever.

Dolly is a gorgeous, affectionate young Seal Point Siamese now ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

She is 1 year of age, a spayed girl, and she melts in your arms. 

Dolly reportedly lost her previous home because she is not fond of other cats. 

Please specifically ask for Dolly by name when you visit Nevada SPCA's free-roaming Cat Condo playrooms.

Please speak to me by voice, not by fist or hitting.

Buddy Blue is a pensive young sweetheart who likes to play with tennis balls. 

It breaks our hearts that he is scared of flashlights or objects that resemble them, so worried he will get struck. 

Buddy Blue is a medium-size Labrador Retriever mix, 2 years of age, neutered boy, ready for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

He seems to be housetrained and fine with other friendly dogs. 

Please help us find Buddy Blue someone who can provide him with a very kind, stable, loving home.

I was already lost and alone, and then I got attacked.

At the time of rescue this angelic, 9-pound girl had been on the streets and taken to another shelter.  She had one large head wound and a few smaller wounds consistent with an attack from a large dog. 

We rescued her, provided her medical care, and named her Cutie.  She is now healed and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Cutie is a delightful Toy Poodle mix, about 4 years of age, spayed, and great with other sweet dogs. 

Please plan and budget extra for regular professional grooming to keep her feeling and looking her best.

My sister makes me happy and helps me feel safe. We're a team.

Sweet Pea & Freesia are gorgeous young sisters debuting for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

They are strongly bonded, plump guinea pigs who need to remain together forever.  (Guinea pigs are very social animals.) 

The girls are friendly and sweet and love their daily salad greens. 

Sweet Pea & Freesia were brought to us by a woman who said that her daughter had moved away without them. 

Please come meet and adopt the girls in our Lovebugs Room.

I am celebrating the new me and I want to join a loving home.

Movado feels so much better now that the knots and tangles have been shaved away.  He is eager to begin his new life in a loving, forever home where he never has to worry about neglect again. 

Movado is a small (18 pounds), friendly, cream & white Cocker Spaniel, 5 years of age, neutered boy, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Movado enjoys other dogs and needs regular professional grooming. 

We rescued this sweetheart from another shelter.

Bessie, an adorable, polydactyl kitten debuting for adoption.

Bessie's extra toes help her give even sweeter hugs. 

She is an adorable baby girl rescued from a warehouse, found there all alone with no sign of her mom or siblings, when just a few weeks of age. 

We placed Bessie in a wonderful foster home for tender loving care and socialization. 

Bessie is now 3 months of age, spayed, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.  She is polydactyl (extra toes) on all four paws. 

Please ask for Bessie by name when you visit.

Please talk to me gently. I am trying to understand.

Zappa is a zany, unbelievably adorable baby boy debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

He is most likely a blend of Poodle and a few other Toy breeds and we expect him to remain small.  Zappa is now 4 months of age and neutered. 

He loves snuggling with you and he gets along well with other dogs. 

Please plan and budget for regular professional grooming.

Zappa was rescued from an abusive home. 

We want to find him a forever home full of love where people do not communicate through screaming, yelling, and hitting.

Why do some people hate gentle beings like me?

Alexander The Great is a friendly, confident young rabbit now ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA in our Lovebugs Room. 

He is a handsome Lionhead mix, 18 months of age and now neutered. 

Alexander The Great needed us because his previous owner said her grand-daughter's boyfriend was threatening to kill him. 

Very sadly, this is not uncommon -- many of our rabbit rescues are from people with family members threatening to eat them, turn them loose, and otherwise harm them. 

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for this very attractive portrait to help Alexander The Great find a stable, responsible, kind, loving, indoor-only, forever home.

I think you'll really like me.

Baldric would love to share his colorful personality with you.  We can't say enough good about this intelligent, engaging boy and he debuts for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Baldric is medium size, an Australian Shepherd mix, 2 years young, neutered, and fine with most dogs.  Please plan on regular brushing. 

We rescued him from another shelter to treat his injured foot. 

Baldric is now well and ready to join a loving, forever home.

I am trying to forgive them for rejecting me when I needed them most.

Grandma is 17 years of age and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

She is a graceful, humble cream tabby with gold eyes, spayed, and best suited for a calm home environment. 

After so many years of loving companionship, someone failed Grandma and she is homeless due to no fault of her own. 

We plead for your help in finding Grandma a hero so she can be placed in a loving home environment as soon as possible. 

She is good with other cats and doing well on daily thyroid medication. 

Our biggest concern with cats of this age is the potential for them to become deeply depressed at the shelter when losing their previous homes and stability in their twilight years. 

Thank you in advance for sharing her picture and helping Grandma

Can I give you my unconditional love and expect safety and kindness in exchange?

Nana is a quiet-natured young sweetheart with a gentle spirit and she debuts for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

She is a beautiful Terrier & Toy mix, spayed girl, 3 years of age, good with other dogs and reportedly housetrained. 

Nana was at another shelter and needed our help because she has only two toes on her front left paw (a birth defect).  She uses this leg to help her walk, but she likes to only walk short distances. 

A relaxed lifestyle without a large stairway is ideal for Nana

Please help us find this angel a hero.

I just want to belong to someone who will cherish me.

Princess Trina is a dainty young girl with a beautiful spirit and she is fascinated most by watching "cat TV" (gazing out windows from the safety of the indoors). 

She is a lovely blue-grey medium-hair, about 3 years of age, spayed, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Princess Trina has regal good looks and deep golden eyes, but she is down-to-earth and friendly to everyone, including other cats. 

At the time of rescue a tenant had abandoned her outdoors without food or water and the landlord found her 10 days later. 

Please help Princess Trina find someone to ensure she is always indoors and loved, never hungry or rejected again.

We are proud, content, triumphant survivors.

Penny and Cash are gorgeous, playful sisters triumphantly ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

They love to sleep on the bed with you and play hide-and-seek with big cardboard boxes. 

They are sleek black shorthairs, 2 years young, spayed, and very affectionate. 

We had them treated for very severe eye infections and placed them with a wonderful foster mom who heroically helped both to good health.  Penny is mostly blind in her left eye and Cash's right eye could not be saved. 

Both are adjusting well, living in the moment, and happy to be alive and feeling better. 

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for this perfect portrait celebrating their recoveries and progress.

I'm alive, at peace, and now safe, and that's what truly matters.

Georgia is an angel, a very gentle soul with heavenly kindness. 

She is an apricot Shih-Tzu, spayed girl, about 7 years of age, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Georgia was at another shelter with her left eye injured beyond repair.  Her previous owner was reportedly found, but Georgia was never reclaimed.

My bruises healed, but my heart still aches.

Patrick's soul is wounded from abuse. 

He flinches if you reach near his head.  He has learned, so cruelly, that hands can hit. 

But Patrick is also learning from volunteers and staff that hands can soothe and comfort.  Patrick is now ready for a loving, forever home where his progress can continue, and he will keep emerging from his shell as he builds self-esteem and trust. 

Patrick is a handsome, tuxedo Bully mix, 5 years of age, neutered boy, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.  We rescued this sweetheart from another shelter. 

Please help find Patrick a hero.

Perhaps I stayed in the street so they would come back and find me.

What was this big girl doing in the middle of the street without any sign of responsible ownership (no ID tag, no microchip ID)? 

A man barely missed running over her.  Fortunately, he stopped the car, helped her in, and brought her to safety. 

We named her Wonder and she happily debuts for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.  Wonder is a lovely Labrador Retriever, about 7 years of age, spayed, and blessed with a cheery personality. 

Wonder is currently 124 pounds.  She needs to stay on a safe, slow weight reduction plan in a new, forever home.

Please don't throw me away again.

This gentle baby girl showed up one morning in someone's backyard, apparently tossed over the wall. 

We named her Bindi and she is now 10 months of age, spayed, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Bindi has pleading eyes and she just wants to feel safe and secure.  She is terrific with other dogs and enjoys playing ball. 

We believe Bindi is a Chihuahua & Terrier mix and she will remain very small.

Is it bad to be fun and playful?

Tweety is a precious baby girl who craves adoration and she debuts for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

She is a petite, butterscotch & white Chihuahua mix, 5 months of age, spayed, and great with other sweet dogs.  Please puppy-proof your home and yard for her safety.

Tweety reportedly lost her previous home due to being too energetic or playful with the family's other dogs.  

Please help us find Tweety a knowledgeable, stable, and lifelong home where her playful spirit will be cherished, not rejected nor deemed a nuisance.

George & Gracie. "It's you & me against the world."

How could little 4-pound George have survived on the streets for any length of time without his guardian angel, Gracie, who is a bit younger and larger? 

Gracie mothers and dotes on George and he feels safe at her side. 

We rescued these tiny Yorkshire Terriers from another shelter to keep them together.  They are soul-mates.  George is a neutered boy, at least 10 years of age.  Gracie is a spayed girl, about 6 years of age. 

Please help George & Gracie find a hero so they are never homeless, scared, hungry, or in danger ever again.  They debut for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Do they even wonder how much they hurt me or worry that I might have died?

Donahue looks forlorn, understandably confused by all that has happened to him even though he did nothing wrong. 

He was left behind in an abandoned home and then taken to another shelter, which then asked for our help in placing him. 

Donahue is a sweet, sporty youngster, a 22-pound Terrier mix with a fun mohawk, 2 years of age, neutered boy, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

I had almost given up hope.

It is a joy to see Daisy May awakening to the joys of loving care and attention. 

The victim of years of physical and emotional neglect, Daisy May's spirit had understandably dulled.  She was a matted mess at the time of rescue, unrecognizable from how she looks today. 

Daisy May has a new sparkle in her eye and she is triumphantly debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

She is a Malti-Poo (Maltese & Poodle mix), 8 years of age, spayed girl, good with other dogs. 

Please adopt Daisy May and shower her with adoration.

I want to stay with my mommy.


Candy & Susanna are daughter and mother, precious and petite Chihuahuas debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Candy is about 10 months of age, Susanna is about 3 years of age, and both are now spayed. 

The girls are quiet-natured and shy with strangers, but affectionate with people they know. 

Candy adores her momma and feels safest at her side.  Adopting pairs can be difficult, so please help these two find someone willing and able to welcome them both into the same loving, forever home.

She whispered in my ear: "The world is a better place with you in it."


Lilly, on the adoption patio with Lara
We wish these pictures could do Lilly justice.  She has hypnotic eyes and the most interesting blue merle & white coloring. 

But more important than her appearance is how agreeable and fun-loving she is, so happy to accompany us and play ball and share her bright spirit. 

Lilly is an American Bulldog & Bully mix, 3 years young, spayed girl, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

We rescued Lilly from another shelter to treat her ear infection (she is now healed).  Special thanks to a group of animal rescuers who offered to pay her rescue fee. 

Please help us find Lilly the best of homes so she is never homeless, hungry, or lonely again.

I snuggle other cats and envelope them in kindness.

Tortease is very nurturing and she likes to mother and comfort other cats of all ages. 

She is a stunningly beautiful tortoiseshell medium-hair feline, about 5 years of age, now spayed and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

At the time of rescue she and her three babies were on the streets.  We placed Tortease and her kittens in a loving foster home for care and socialization. 

Her babies have since been spayed/neutered and adopted, so it's now it's mom's turn to find a loving, forever home. 

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for this elegant portrait of Tortease.

How am I supposed to fit into this scary world?

Cody is a very sensitive young boy who yearns for peace-of-mind.  Once he trusts you he melts in your arms for reassurance. 

Cody is a small Heinz 57, perhaps with Spaniel, and a unique cream-colored cotton-ball appearance, about 1 year of age, neutered, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Cody is good with other dogs and he responds well to gentle people. 

We rescued him from another to treat his ear infection.  Cody is now healed and ready for a loving, forever home.

Does anyone want my unconditional love?

Superstars need angels and heroes too.

Superstar is a tiny little buttercup who likes to rest in your hands and give you doggie kisses. 

She is a blond Chihuahua, spayed girl, about 5 years of age, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Superstar gets along beautifully with cats, dogs, and mature kids.  She is very gentle and just wants peace and love.

Despite a birth defect that bows her back legs, she can walk short distances. 

Please help us find this angel a hero.

Gretchen, a Boxer puppy for adoption who loves to listen to you.

Gretchen is a beautiful pup, smart and engaging and kind, debuting for adoption triumphantly today at Nevada SPCA.  She is a Boxer, about 10 months of age and spayed.

Boxer knowledge is preferred for her adoption.
