Beretta

Beretta is a panda bear-cute youngster who wants to believe in people. 

But he is afraid of being hit and fast hand movements near his head or neck terrify him. 

Beretta has enormous loving potential and his progress can continue in a loving, stable, forever home.  He is Heinz 57 (blend of breeds) including Bully & Retriever, about 2 years of age, now neutered and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Beretta was found abandoned on the streets.  The man who captured him said he is housetrained and compatible with other dogs. 

Please help find Beretta a hero.

Alexandria




Alexandria now understands there is kindness in the world, and thanks to months of loving attention from volunteers, her spirits are soaring with hope! 

She is a medium-size Heinz 57 (unique blend of many breeds), 2 years young, spayed, and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

An abuse survivor, found abandoned on the streets, she is still shy with strangers, but she quickly warms to people and shines. 

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

Manchester Terrier mix puppies debuting for adoption.

Gloria

Grace

Wallace

Wendell
Gloria, Grace, Wallace, and Wendell are four innocent, bashful babies with enormous loving potential and they debut for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

They are attractive Manchester Terrier mix puppies, about 6 months of age, spayed/neutered, and expected to grow to 15-20 pounds.  Gloria and Grace are girls, and Wallace and Wendell are boys. 

They were at another shelter that asked for our help because they were cowering in their kennel. 

All four are improving and responding well to kindness from volunteers and staff, though Wallace remains particularly timid. 

A big sister or brother dog for each of them may be ideal to help them adjust and continue building self-esteem.  Please also puppy-proof your home and yard for their safety.

Please find me a hero.


Sterling's eyes cannot see, but they remain expressive of his emotions and reveal his impassioned plea for kindness and reassurance. 

We rescued this angel from another shelter and his background is otherwise unknown. 

Sterling is friendly and dearly comes to trust the people he bonds with, relying on them to keep his environment safe. 

He has a singular appearance, a medium-size Heinz 57 with short legs, perhaps a blend of Basset Hound & Rottweiler, among other breeds.  Sterling is 5 years of age, neutered, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Please help us find Sterling a hero.

I want someone to love.


Chico, an abuse survivor, is wary of new people. 

But once he knows you are kind, and trustworthy, he deeply bonds with you and stares at you adoringly. 

Chico wants to give his whole heart to someone who will never fail him and always keep him safe and at peace. 

He is a Longhair Chihuahua, 7-8 years of age, good with other dogs, neutered, and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for these terrific portraits to help him find a loving, forever home.

Tommy



Tommy is remarkably thoughtful and kind. 

He was at a special event last night (Party With Your Pooch) and met thousands of people and dogs, and he loved everyone! 

Tommy is a gold-cream & white Chihuahua, about 5 years of age, neutered, and good with other dogs. 

We rescued him from another shelter. 

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for these fun new portraits to help him find a forever home.

Let me love you?


Mocha would love to become your devoted little angel. 

She likes to cuddle and a calm home environment is ideal. 

She is a beautiful Chihuahua mix, about 4 years of age and spayed, good with most dogs and housetrained, and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for these fantastic portraits to help Mocha find a loving, forever home.

Georgie



Georgie melts hearts with her fun-loving spirit, huggable rotund body, and pig-like tail.  Volunteers refer to her as "our cute little piggy". 

Georgie is a junior puppy, a French Bulldog mix, perhaps with Staffordshire Terrier, about 7 months of age, spayed, and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

Georgie is good with many dogs, but her previous owner said she bit their small dog and that was the reason for surrendering her.  (A language barrier kept us from learning more, including the specific situation when the scuffle took place.)

Puppies need experienced homes, kind guidance, and stable lifestyle routines. 

Clara



Clara's new Pet'ographique portraits capture her remarkable radiance! 

She is 10 years of age, but young at heart like a puppy, eager and grateful for each new day. 

Clara is a Miniature Pinscher, spayed, good with other dogs, and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA.

One of her favorite things is to burrow under blankets for her naps. 

Please visit and ask for Clara by name.

Dawn and Dean

Dawn and Dean, sister and brother

Dawn, baby girl

Dean, baby boy
Dawn and Dean are adorable puppies found roaming near a busy Vegas parkway with no sign of responsible ownership. 

They are sister and brother, about 6 months of age, a blend of many breeds (with long bodies, low to the ground), now spayed/neutered and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

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

We expect them to grow to just medium size.  They can be adopted separately, but please consider adopting them together for lifelong companionship.

Lotus



Lotus is a baby girl who loves taking shoulder rides, occasionally kissing you on the cheek. 

She is a beautiful London tabby (with "bullseye" patterning), 6 months of age, now spayed and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA.  Please kitten-proof your home for her safety.

Lotus loves playing with other cats too. 

Please visit and ask for Lotus by name.

Coconut



Coconut is a vibrant junior puppy debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

She is a stunning blend of Smooth Collie and Siberian Husky, about 10 months of age and now spayed. 

Coconut was found roaming in a parking lot with no sign of responsible ownership (no ID tag, no microchip ID, not spayed). 

The person who captured her said she is compatible with cats, dogs, and kids, and mostly housetrained too.

Tyler



Tyler is young at heart, a snuggly senior with a colorful personality who asks for your consideration.  He needs a loving home. 

Tyler is exceptional with other dogs.  He is a tuxedo Dachshund mix, about 10 years of age and neutered, ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for these incredibly sweet new portraits to help spotlight Tyler.

He needed us due to his previous owners' financial hardship.

Cosette

Cosette was at another shelter that asked for our help.  She was in medical distress with suspected seizures. 

We rescued Cosette and hospitalized her at a veterinary clinic that determined she was likely poisoned or otherwise ingested toxins. 

She has recovered very well, and during the past two weeks she has been monitored with no signs of seizures or neurological problems. 

But Cosette's emotional healing from abuse will take longer.  She is building self-esteem and realizing that she is safe from violence. 

Cosette has enormous loving potential.  She is a beautiful Terrier mix, 1 year young, spayed, and ready for a hero to adopt her at Nevada SPCA.

Mel, Washington, and Zoe

Mel, baby boy.

Washington, baby boy.

Zoe, baby girl.
Mel, Washington, and Zoe were rescued from a person handing out kittens to strangers in a large department store parking lot. 

We placed them in a wonderful foster home for nurturing care and socialization. 

The babies are now 3 months of age, spayed/neutered, and debuting for adoption at Nevada SPCA.

Mel purrs loudly in your arms and enjoys snuggling. He plays a bit rough, which is ideal with his brother (Washington), but maybe too much for a young child.

Washington is a bashful kitten with captivating eyes (ocean-blue with gold speckles). He is still building confidence and feels most at ease around his brother (Mel).

Zoe likes to try and "catch" the sunbeams coming through the windows. She is quite social and wants to know where are you in the house. If she can't find you, she might cry for your reassurance. A calm home environment is ideal for her.

Midnight, Noche, and Pumpkin

Midnight, baby boy.

Noche, baby girl.

Pumpkin, baby boy.
Midnight, Noche, and Pumpkin have been very lovingly raised and socialized in a foster home since their rescue. 

The babies are now 3 months of age, spayed/neutered, and debuting for adoption at Nevada SPCA.

Midnight adores other cats and needs a calm home environment with adults. Children and strangers frighten him. He has extra toes (polydactyl), which help him bat at his toys during playtime.

Noche's favored activities include chasing toy balls with jingle bells inside or sitting in your lap for petting. She loves exploring new rooms and enjoys other cats.

Pumpkin is very social and may follow you around the house to be in your presence. He is a remarkable athlete and can jump to places you'd never consider, so carefully kitten-proofing your home is of special importance.

Betsy and Bernice

Betsy and Bernice are darling baby sisters rescued from abandonment in a dumpster. 

They are wonderful treasures, playful and engaging kittens who give kisses when you hold them. 

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

Betsy has flame point coloring and Bernice has tortie point coloring (charcoal, cream, white) and extra toes (polydactyl). 

Both are exceptional with other cats and eager to begin their new lives with people who will treasure and protect them.

Harriet



Harriet is a humble girl who asks for so little. 

In return for your kindness though, and lifetime commitment, she will devotedly bless you with years of unconditional love and adoration. 

Harriet is a Basset Hound & Beagle mix, 5 years of age, spayed, good with other dogs, and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for capturing Harriet's goodness in these new portraits.

Ocean

Ocean is an earnest, bright-eyed gentleman who craves attention. 

He was found abandoned outdoors, with no sign of responsible ownership, declawed (front paws), and in poor condition. 

Ocean is bouncing back to good health well, eating premium food and enjoying being showered with loving reassurance by volunteers.  He is 4 years of age and now neutered and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

Ocean will greet you at the door when you return home.  We believe he will do best in a home as the only cat so that he doesn't have to share you with others.

Paul -- Before & After

Paul, October 7, the day of his rescue.

Paul, October 16, his debut for adoption.
Paul wants to know what being loved feels like. 

He is a gentle Lhasa-Poo, 1 year of age, good with other dogs, and now neutered and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Paul was found near an apartment complex where he reportedly roamed and scrapped for food from anyone kind enough to help him. 

Finally, a man captured him and brought him to safety with us. 

Rather than being afraid, Paul eagerly accepted our help and volunteers began cleaning and feeding him immediately. 

Please help Paul find a responsible home where he will be cherished and adored as a valuable member of the family.
