Kindness is helping me heal and bloom.




We are so proud of Ranger's physical and emotional healing from abuse, as well as deeply grateful to the volunteers helping him understand that humans can be kind. 

Ranger's right front leg was injured beyond repair at the time of rescue due to extreme trauma.  He has been adjusting well to life on three legs and he is ready to join a loving, stable, forever home. 

Ranger is a super sweet Chihuahua mix, 2 years of age, good with other dogs, neutered, and available for adoption at Nevada SPCA.

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for these cute portraits to help Ranger.

Alexander The Great

Alexander The Great triumphantly debuts for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

In June, he had been hit by a vehicle and taken to an emergency veterinary hospital, which called and asked if Nevada SPCA could take him and help him recover from a broken pelvis. 

We placed Alexander The Great in a gentle foster home for extended rest and he recovered beautifully!

He is a small and affectionate Terrier mix, 2 years of age, now neutered, and compatible with cats and small dogs.  Alexander The Great enjoys playing ball and sleeping on the bed at your side.

Naomi
Abel and his sisters, Ashley and Naomi, are precious babies who have wonderfully socialized in a foster home since their rescue.

All three love people and cats.  Abel is the most athletic and playful, while Ashley is the most adventurous and Naomi is the super cuddler. 

Please come meet these three and the many other rescued cats and kittens eagerly awaiting forever homes.

Can I please ask for your kindness?

Desmond pleads for security and peace-of-mind.

He was found near a very busy Vegas street with no sign of responsible ownership (no ID tag, no microchip ID, not neutered).

His right eye was diagnosed as severely injured from an old trauma, but Desmond has long ago adjusted to living with one functional eye.

Desmond is a tiny Miniature Pinscher & Chihuahua mix, about 7 years of age, and good with other sweet dogs.  He is now neutered and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Wonderful update on beloved Andre!

Andre, photographed by Pet'ographique (www.petographique.com) in the spring of 2014


We are overjoyed to share this update and good news with you. 

Andre, our longest canine resident, has been adopted into a loving forever home! 

His great new mom, Bobbie, loves him dearly and shared these pictures of him swimming and enjoying his new life. 

Andre is a Bully mix, 4 years of age and neutered.  Andre had been working for many months with very dedicated volunteers who succeeded in improving his manners, reducing his rowdiness, all with kindness, to maintain his very bright and enthusiastic spirit. 

Thank you to Bobbie, his new mom, and to all of the volunteers and others who always believed in him and cultivated his tremendous progress!

I am overjoyed to understand that my future may be free of violence.

Yukon was at another shelter and needed us because of an open wound on her front leg. 

She had been confiscated from her previous home by an officer, but we have no further details on how she was injured. 

We rescued Yukon and she is now healed and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. She is a glowing, hopeful Border Collie mix, about 7 years of age and spayed, and fine with some dogs (but picky about which ones she likes). 

Please help find her a forever home where she will be treasured and never the victim of violence again.

Thank you for being kind and patient with us.

Nash

Nico

Nolan
Nash, Nico, and Nolan are three bashful baby brothers, junior puppies, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

The boys were at another shelter that needed our help due to their timidity. 

All three are responding wonderfully to kindness and have already begun blooming. 

The boys are Terrier & Toy mixes, 9 months of age, and neutered.

In experienced homes, they can continue building confidence and reaching their full loving potential.

Sir Pumba


Sir Pumba is a big, 22-pound loverboy for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

He was found wandering the streets, severely and painfully matted from years of neglect.  Sir Pumba knew the staff was helping relieve his pain, so he gently laid down and let them shave his coat off for a fresh start.

He seems to act more like a dog than a cat, including following you from room-to-room and begging for people food with sad eyes.  So we gave him a dog bed for his naps and he loves it. 

Sir Pumba is also good with cats, so we'd love to find a very social home for him.  He is about 8 years of age and neutered. 

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

June 7

July 19
This tiny, 4-pound angel was rescued last month after being found in deplorable condition on the streets, the victim of years of extreme neglect.

We put Esperanza on a premium, probiotic diet, had her groomed, spayed, and had dental care provided for her.

Esperanza is a Shih-Tzu, about 12 years of age and she is drawn to gentle people and dogs.

Please help us find her a responsible home where she will finally understand what being cherished and adored feels like.

Let me give you all of my love.


Nike is a benevolent older boy who loves building very strong bonds. 

Not only is he terrific with people and dogs, he also adores cats and gets deeply attached to them. 

Nike is a tuxedo Retriever & Shepherd mix, about 9 years of age, neutered and housetrained, and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA.

I need to feel wanted.


Braxton is bashful and unsure of himself, but within minutes of receiving kindness he begins shining. 

He was found on the Vegas streets with no sign of responsible ownership. 

Braxton is a medium-size Heinz 57 (blend of many breeds) with Boxer & Shepherd, 1 year young, neutered and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

He likes other dogs and may do best in a home with a big sister or brother dog to help him adjust.

Please never give up on us.

Charmander

Onyx
Charmander and Onyx are brother and sister, wonderfully lovable junior puppies debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Both are reportedly terrific with mature kids, as well as good with other dogs and partially housetrained. 

Their previous owners, who surrendered them due to financial hardship, said that they are Border Collie mixes.  We expect them to grow just to medium size. 

They are now 6 months of age and spayed/neutered.  Please puppy-proof your home and yard for their safety.

Penelope


Penelope is a thoughtful girl, tiny at 8 pounds, but full of enormous unconditional love. 

She was at another shelter that needed our help because of a birth defect with her hind left leg.  Penelope cannot walk on the leg, but she uses it on occasion for sitting or leaning.  Since it does not cause her any pain, her veterinarian decided against amputation. 

Penelope adores people and she is great with other dogs. 

She is a Longhair Chihuahua, about 7 years of age, spayed, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Three blind angels need a hero.

Bella and son, Bear, and daughter, Tres

Bear

Bella

Tres

Tres, Bella, Bear
Bella, and her son, Bear, and daughter, Tres, are a vibrant trio with shining spirits.

They get around remarkably well, each relying on the other, and we often find them sitting in a clover-shape with their hind ends touching.

They even play ball, if tossed around a baby pool so they can hear the splashes.

All three are attractive Australian Cattle Dogs and spayed/neutered.  Bella is about 7 years of age, while Bear and Tres are 5 years of age.

Their bond is magical, so despite the difficulty of a triple adoption, we believe that adopting them together is very important.

Please share their pictures and help find someone wonderful for them for life.

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for the top portrait, taken on September 2, to help them find a loving, forever home.

Nobody wants me?


Zeus is well-behaved, compatible with kids and dogs, housetrained and crate-trained.

He has a fun, pleasant personality and enjoys playing ball.

Over the months Zeus has watched thousands of other rescued dogs get adopted, but he still awaits someone wonderful to want him for a devoted, lifelong companion and family member.

Zeus is  Boxer & Bully mix, 7 years of age and neutered, with handsome tiger/brindle coloring.  Please visit Nevada SPCA and ask for Zeus by name.

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for this new portrait to help win Zeus new consideration.

Trixie


Trixie is a beautiful young girl with enormous loving potential. 

She was at another shelter that asked for our help because she was very frightened.  Trixie is worried that strangers will hurt her again -- it's clear she has been the victim of cruelty -- but once she trusts you she glows and shines! 

Trixie is medium-size, just 38 pounds, 1 year young, spayed, good with other dogs, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Her wavy coat, stature, and body shape more resemble a small Golden Retriever than a Chocolate Labrador.

Please be patient and kind with me.


Maggie is a snuggly, bashful Italian Greyhound mix puppy (we believe she is 75% Italian Greyhound) debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

She yearns to be with gentle people and she gets along well with other sweet dogs. 

Maggie is long and slender, and quite speedy when she runs, though a calm home environment is likely most suitable for her. 

Her background is mostly unknown except that she was in an inadequate home and failed to receive basic training or proper care. 

Maggie is 6 months of age and now spayed.  Please puppy-proof your home and yard for Maggie's safety.

The Acrobatic Kittens are debuting for adoption!

Gida, baby girl

Nimbus, baby boy

Nurya, baby girl

Remarkable athletes, they are wonderfully entertaining and graceful. 

Please provide them with cat trees or other indoor furniture they can climb and leap on. 

Nimbus is a boy and Gida and Nurya are girls.  Please kitten-proof your home for their safety.

The kittens have been lovingly raised and socialized in foster care since their rescue.

Maggie & Star



Maggie & Star are incredibly charming sisters with a magical bond and they debut for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

The girls are beautiful and exceptionally friendly German Shepherds, about 7 years of age and spayed. 

They were at another shelter that asked for our help so they could remain together forever. 

Their previous owner was a gentleman in his 80's who was losing his vision and could no longer care for them. 

Please share their pictures and help us find Maggie & Star are a wonderful, loving home.

Sweetheart kittens ready for adoption!





These five sweetheart kittens -- Britain, Candace, Delilah, Jerry, and Scott -- were found as motherless newborns in distress. 

Since their rescue they have been bottle-fed, raised, and socialized with cats and dogs in loving foster care. 

The babies are now 4 months of age, spayed/neutered, and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

All five love to investigate new rooms and toys, as well as sit in laps and purr heartily with contentment. 

Candace and Delilah are girls.  Britain, Jerry, and Scott are boys. 

Please be sure to kitten-proof your home for their safety and protection.
