Constantine asks for your consideration so he can finally join a forever home and bless someone with his unconditional devotion. 

He is a well-behaved boy who has waited for months for the special day to arrive.  Constantine plays fetch and gets along well with other dogs. 

He is housetrained & crate-trained, a large and noble Retriever & Bully mix, 5 years of age and neutered, ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA.

Can I win love without being exploited?

Athena seems to have perfect clarity that she has been rescued. She hasn't stopped kissing staff and volunteers since arriving!

We stopped counting her face and neck scars at 100. There are hundreds more, and "home-cut" ears, from her years of fighting and being bred for puppies.

Athena loves people and needs to know what it feels like to be valued for her personality and loving presence, rather than as a machine for fighting and breeding. Please help find her a hero will always keep her safe and never fail her.

Athena is a Bully mix, 3 years of age and spayed, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. She cannot be around any other animals. 

We rescued Athena from another shelter.

[Thank you to Animal Help Alliance and others for aiding in her rescue and recovery.]

Peace-of-mind is happiness.

Neo needs someone to love.

He is a Hound mix, 10 years of age but young at heart, a neutered boy, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Neo is friendly and craves attention, especially from women, and doesn't think of himself as too big to lay in your lap.  Neo is housetrained and crate-trained.

He needs a very gentle home.  He reportedly witnessed and experienced at least one horrible incidence of domestic violence.  Neo is protective of women and wants to ensure all is at peace in the home.

Please help us find a hero for Neo.

Aidan and Sonya



Enormous thanks to everyone making year-end, lifesaving donations to Nevada SPCA!

Animals in most dire need -- including Aidan and Sonya, who triumphantly debut for adoption today -- are alive and thriving because of y...our generosity.

Aidan and Sonya are breathtakingly cute babies, brother and sister, Jack Russell Terrier mix puppies, now 3 months of age and spayed/neutered. 

They were dangerously ill with parvo at the time of rescue. We rushed them and their five siblings into emergency care at a veterinary hospital. Six of the babies survived, thanks to extensive medical treatment. (The remaining four puppies will be ready for adoption too in the days to come.)

Thank you for saving me.

Cheryl is a junior puppy ready to bring more love and joy into the world.  She can do so now that she has triumphed over a deadly disease (parvo). 

Cheryl is a honey & gold Chi-Weenie (Chihuahua & Dachshund), 9 months of age and spayed, great with other dogs, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.  Please puppy-proof your home and yard for her safety.

At the time of rescue Cheryl was dangerously ill.  Thanks to extensive medical care, made possible by generous donors, Cheryl made a beautiful recovery. 

Please visit and ask for her by name.


Lila is a sensitive young girl yearning to find her place in this chaotic, sometimes cruel world. 

She is a beautiful German Shepherd, 3 years of age and spayed, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Lila was at another shelter and needed our help due to timidity. 

She has been hit and worries that strangers want to harm her. 

We believe Lila is ready to give her heart to someone who will keep her safe and show her a lifetime of kindness. 

German Shepherd knowledge and a secure home/yard is needed for her adoption. 

Please share Lila's picture to help find her a hero.

Bastille, at 8 years, proves that youthfulness is an attitude, not an age. 

He has the enthusiasm and heart of a puppy, overflowing with joy when you tell him it's time for a walk or adventure.  Bastille loved going to Pet'ographique for these brand new portraits!

He is a Labrador Retriever mix, neutered boy, fine with some dogs, and he's eagerly awaiting adoption at Nevada SPCA.

We rescued Bastille from another shelter.

Elektra is a charming, exuberant Dutch mix bunny awaiting adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

She is 2 years young and spayed, and very enthusiastic for her daily veggies & salad bowl of greens! 

Elektra needed us when her previous owner passed away. 

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for these lovely portraits to help Elektra find a responsible, indoor-only, loving forever home.

Tiny angels and survivors.



This is a story of seven tiny angels surviving parvo and three of the siblings are debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

A man brought in a large blue plastic container in mid-November.  We opened the lid and seven pairs of frightened eyes were peering up at us, pleading for help.  Their mother had perished from parvo disease and all of the puppies were perilously ill.

We rushed them to a veterinary clinic for advanced emergency care, made possible thanks to the exceptional generosity of donors to our advanced care fund.  After extensive treatment, all seven puppies made beautiful recoveries.

Today, Bobby, Dianne, and Macaroon are spayed/neutered and ready for adoption.  They are Chihuahua puppies, approximately 3 months of age, and all sport very playful and lovable personalities.

Their four siblings will be ready for adoption too in the days to come (once they have, and recover from, their spay/neuter surgeries).

Luna cannot see us, but she beams because she knows she is adored, thanks to tender touch, premium meals, and words spoken in reassuring tones.  

Luna is the most gentle soul, a Miniature Poodle, 10 years of age, blind, spayed, housetrained, good with dogs & kids, and patiently awaiting adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for these new portraits to help find Luna a hero.


You can see so much hope and kindness in Annie's eyes.  This beautiful girl is blooming and now ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA.

We rescued Annie from another shelter.  She was terrified and wanted nothing to do with people. 

But thanks to exceptional foster care, Annie is now housetrained & crate-trained, good with dogs of all sizes, playing fetch and enjoying belly rubs, and realizing that people are capable of incredible kindness. 

Annie is a medium-size Heinz 57, likely with Bully or Rottweiler, 3 years young and spayed. 

Please help find her a wonderful home where she continues to improve and reach her full loving potential.

The emergence of Nicole.

Nicole emerging from her blanket reminds us of how she has been blooming at the shelter.  Wary at first, then daring to peek and becoming comfortable with those around her. 

Nicole is a bashful, gorgeous medium-hair, 3 years of age and spayed, ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

She loves to snuggle in your lap and hear your words of reassurance. 

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for this series of portraits for Nicole.

Dixie was at another shelter that asked for our help.  She was curled up in a ball, tense, terrified of everyone and everything. 

Dixie does not yet fully understand that she is safe, but she is lifting her head, trusting us and accepting kindness, and making friends with other dogs. 

We are so happy to see her bloom and believe she is ready to join a quiet, loving forever home. 

Dixie is a petite, pretty Chihuahua mix, 2 years of age and spayed, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Flower Girl

Flower Girl is offering to be your lifelong assistant and cherished family member. 

She is a delightful young Chihuahua mix, 1 year of age, good with dogs, now spayed and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Flower Girl was pregnant and running loose on the streets at the time of rescue. 

We placed her in a nurturing foster home and she gave birth to 5 babies just two days later and then raised her puppies in a peaceful, comfortable environment.  (Her babies are doing well and remaining in foster care until they are spayed/neutered.) 

Please visit and ask for Flower Girl by name.

Cary invites you to a Nevada SPCA holiday party!

Cary would like to invite you to Nevada SPCA on Saturday, 10am-5pm, for a holiday party dedicated to rescued senior animals, longest residents, and animals with special needs. 

This is our annual Christmas Eve Dedication, but instead of being just one day, the Dedication to rescued animals with challenges continues through year's end.  Free admission, light refreshments, tons of goodwill -- please join us and show your support for animal rescue!

Cary is all about cuddling, belly rubs, and doggie kisses!  He is 3 years of age, a Bully mix, neutered boy, awaiting adoption at Nevada SPCA.

You may remember Cary from last year, when we rescued him with severe wounds from a dog-fighting ring.  Cary was adopted, but needed us again (due to no fault of his own). 

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for these remarkable portraits to help Cary find a stable, loving forever home.

Salem asking for a hero.

Salem, 12 years of age and blind, understood that his portrait day at Pet'ographique was to showcase him, and his personality gleamed. 

He is a thoughtful and kind senior asking for a hero, a Cairn Terrier mix, a neutered boy, good with other dogs, awaiting adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

Please share Salem's portraits and help find him a wonderful home this holiday season.

We rescued Salem from another shelter.

Hedda Hopper

Hedda Hopper is a young girl, full of character, hoping to join a stable, loving family for life. 

She is a beautiful Lop mix bunny, 2 years of age and spayed, ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

Hedda Hopper enjoys being the center of attention and likes to redecorate her condo habitat to her particular liking.

She needed us because she was "unwanted" by her previous owner.

Thanks to you and other caring people, animals seemingly without any hope left at all, like Godiva, can make triumphant and beautiful recoveries, and learn that humans are capable of nurturing and kindness.

Godiva is a friendly Rex bunny with a warm spirit, 3 years of age, now spayed and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

At the time of rescue she was found abandoned in an apartment complex, chemically burned across much of her back and body with open wounds. 

(We decided not to show her "before" picture, for many reasons, including the children who visit our pages, but will share it with potential adopters who wish to see it to get a better sense of what she endured.) 

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for capturing Godiva's progress and sweet soul in these portraits.

Vicki must surely be an angel on Earth, wanting to hug everyone and share her joy and kindness. 

She is a vibrant Australian Shepherd & Border Collie mix, 6 years of age and spayed, good with other dogs, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Vicki was at another shelter and needed our help.  Her left eye was malformed (by birth defect or injury) beyond repair. 

Vicki has healed well from her eye removal and she is very ready to begin her new life.

Will you let us love you?

Amy Lee



These four precious babies -- Amy Lee, Jack, Lesley, and Matt -- are debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

They are now 3 months of age and spayed/neutered.  Amy Lee is a girl and the others are boys. 

Please consider adopting a pair for lifelong companionship.

Amy Lee is a social butterfly and delights in being held.

Jack relishes belly rubs and cuddling.

Matt is sporty and eager to play ball.
