These four lovebug kittens seem to melt in your hands as they roll around while you pet them, soaking up affection.

Please consider adopting a pair for lifelong companionship.

Miracle


On October 14, Miracle was skeletal from starvation, perilously weighing only 25.6 pounds.  Today, this triumphant young boy weighs 46.8 pounds and he debuts for adoption at Nevada SPCA.

Miracle shines and glows, and he's come to deeply adore the staff and volunteers helping him recover. 

He is 1 year of age and neutered, a medium-size Heinz 57 with Bully, sporting white mitts and golden eyes. 

We believe Miracle may be compatible with some dogs too. 

Please help find him a responsible and stable home where he will never know desperate hunger again.

Jackie



Jackie is blessed with the most gentle spirit.  She is an angel on this Earth and she needs a loving home. 

Jackie is a Doberman Pinscher, 3 years of age and spayed, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. She is terrific with other dogs too. 

Jackie was at another shelter and needed our help.  As you can see, she has birth defects that affected the location of her teeth, eyes, and ears, but we see her as uniquely perfect & perfectly unique, the sweetest bundle of love.

Binky




Binky is a charming and comical older boy with a youthful spirit and he awaits adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

He is a large Bully mix, 10 years of age and neutered, housetrained and crate-trained, and compatible with some dogs. 

Binky loves playing fetch and he wants to be around people as much as possible. 

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for these new portraits that capture many facets of his personality.

Oh Honey

Honey, at 3 pounds, is the size of a guinea pig, but she has a big personality and she melts the hearts of everyone she meets.  This pixie-like baby girl triumphantly debuts for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

At the time of rescue Honey was just 3 days old and in peril from fluid in her lungs.  We had critical care provided for her (thanks to Nevada SPCA's advanced veterinary care fund) and her heroic foster mom bottle-fed her every few hours to keep her alive. 

Honey has been raised with cats and dogs of all ages and she is pee-pad trained.  She adores her elephant toy (which we will send home with her). 

Honey is a Chihuahua mix, now 7 months of age and spayed. 

Please ask for her by name when you visit.

Before & After: Weston, a rescued Shih-Tzu debuting for adoption today.

Weston, on the day of his rescue

Weston, on the morning of November 22
Earlier this month Weston was at another shelter and needed our help.  The victim of long-term neglect, he could barely see through his unkempt coat and was grumpy about anyone touching him.

But when we shaved it all away we discovered the sweetest little soul and most magical blue eyes.

Weston is a Shih-Tzu, about 5 years of age and neutered, and good with other dogs.

Please help us find Weston a gentle, stable home where he will be treasured.

Heather




Heather has been going with volunteers to fun "boot camp" training classes.  Of particular interest from her reports is that she seems motivated most by cuddling rewards, not treats or toys, and that she loves racing through play-tunnels with glee! 

We adopted Heather to a family earlier this year, but she was returned for not getting along well with their other dog.  She likes some dogs though and certainly adores people wholeheartedly. 

Heather is a pretty Bully mix, 1 year of age and spayed and crate-trained, awaiting adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for these new portraits capturing her sweet spirit.

Is the world ready for me?

Josie is an outgoing junior puppy with a beautiful prance in her step. 

We love seeing her head held high, her recovery complete, and she debuts for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Josie is a steel-grey & white Bully mix, 7 months of age, crate-trained and compatible with mature kids.  An active lifestyle routine is ideal for this playful girl. 

At the time of rescue she was perilously ill with parvo, but thanks to donors to Nevada SPCA's advanced veterinary care fund we were able to provide her with extensive treatment that saved her life. 

Please visit and ask for Josie by name. 

Vivian's Babies

Coco

Gypsy

Mya

Nutmeg

Rose

Sage

Vivian, mother of the puppies
You may recall the August rescue of Vivian, an abandoned, pregnant young Bully mix. She gave birth to six beautiful babies just hours after being placed in a nurturing foster home.

After raising her puppies, Vivian has since been spayed and adopted.  Her babies are now 3 months of age, spayed/neutered, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Coco and Sage are boys.  Gypsy, Mya, Nutmeg, and Rose are girls.  All six are zany-fun and completely adorable!

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

They can be adopted separately, but please consider adopting a pair for lifelong companionship.


Brody

Brody is overflowing with joy, triumphant in recovery, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

He is a handsome Boxer, 2 years of age and neutered. 

At the time of rescue he was severely starved in the backyard of a loveless home, denied toys or attention. 

In the weeks since then Brody has been regaining weight and energy with a very caring family, and he is now even housetrained too. 

We don't yet know if Brody can be around other dogs, but he is thriving beautifully with attention and deserves to know what being a cherished member of a family feels like.

Maybe I had given up hope that I would ever really be loved.

It's not too late for 9-year-old Connor to finally realize what a stable, loving home feels like. 

Emotionally, he is recovering from abuse.  Physically, he is challenged with arthritis and diminished vision and hearing. 

The only thing known about his background is that an officer confiscated Connor from his previous home and took him to a government-funded shelter, which in turn asked for our help. 

Connor likes other friendly dogs and he still believes in the goodness of people, though he warms slowly to strangers. 

He is an Australian Shepherd mix, 9 years of age and neutered, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

There can be rich emotional rewards with adopting seniors and other animals with special challenges. 

Will you please help us find Connor a hero?

Bucky, Bugsy and La Ruff

Bucky, 2 years of age, neutered boy.

Bugsy, 1 year of age, neutered boy.

La Ruff, 2 years of age, neutered boy.
We learned about these three young boys at another shelter.  They were reportedly taken there by their previous owner for somehow getting into a chicken coop. 

Bucky is a tiny, 5-pound Chihuahua.  Bugsy is a cute and bashful Chihuahua mix.  And La Ruff is a medium-size, Benji-like breed of many Terriers and Sporting Dog breeds. 

They don't need to be adopted as a trio -- what was important was getting them safe so they could join responsible homes -- but please consider adopting a pair or pairing them with another dog for lifelong companionship.

Sweet Charity

Like her namesake, Sweet Charity yearns to be loved. 

She is a junior puppy, about 9 months of age.  Sweet Charity was at another shelter and needed us because she was shivering in fear in her kennel, refusing eye contact. 

She is very gentle and ready to bloom.  Sweet Charity is a beautiful, medium-size blend of many breeds, including multiple Bully breeds, though smaller and lower to the ground than most Bully breeds. 

Please help find her a responsible and calm home environment where she will shine and reach her full loving potential.

Cassandra, Jimmy, and Timmy.

Cassandra

Jimmy

Timmy
Cassandra and her brothers, Jimmy and Timmy, are precious silver tabby kittens ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

The babies are 4 months of age and spayed/neutered.  They have been raised and socialized in a loving foster home since their rescue. 

They have been described as follows: Cassandra, the lap kitty, Jimmy, the intelligent and quiet observer, and Timmy, most curious and playful.  Please visit and ask for them by name.

Please kitten-proof your home for their safety.

They can be adopted separately, but please consider adopting a pair, or the trio, for lifelong companionship.

Urgent foster home needed for Cupcake and her babies!


Urgent need for a foster hero for Cupcake and her 6 babies!  Please help us find an experienced temporary caretaker for this emaciated, malnourished mother and her month-old young pups.

Volunteers rescued them this morning, along with another adult dog, from a suspected backyard breeder.  Cupcake is a well-behaved and affectionate girl, about 6 years of age.  A peaceful, comfortable home environment is ideal for her recovery and for raising her babies.  The foster commitment will be for approximately 3 months.

If you can help, please visit Nevada SPCA in person before 4pm and ask for DJ.  Thank you.

Is there a hero for me?

Millie, a 15-year angel, is forlorn and at risk of crashing into a major depression, so we bonded her with another dog to share a kennel and volunteers and staff are giving her as much attention and reassurance as possible. 

Please help us find Millie a hero!

She is a thoughtful, humble Beagle mix, spayed, and good with cats and dogs. 

The circumstances of her homelessness are quite vague, with her previous owner saying that someone gave Millie to him but he was not allowed to have dogs in his apartment. 

If you help outreach and share this post, we know a loving person will step forward and provide a stable home for Millie.

I want to be loved.

Texas cannot see you, so your kind touch and words mean the world to him. 

He is a sweetheart baby boy and when he knows he is adored and treasured, he will cover your cheeks with puppy kisses. 

Texas is 4 months of age and blind, a Chihuahua & Miniature Pinscher mix, neutered, great with other dogs, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.  Please very carefully puppy-proof your home and yard for his safety, especially around pools, stairs, and other potential dangers. 

We rescued him from another shelter. 

Please help find a hero for Texas.

Herbert

Herbert is ready to bring you millions of smiles.  His sunny disposition and unique appearance add to his incredible charm. 

A massive trauma (perhaps being run over by a vehicle) to the right side of his head long ago has altered the position of his mouth, nose, and ears, but all of his functioning has adjusted. 

Herbert loves people and other dogs and wants to share his good cheer with everyone he meets! 

He is a small Terrier mix, about 6 years of age, neutered, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

At the time of rescue he was found in a desert-border community known for a large coyote population.

Tommy



Tommy needs a loving home and asks for your consideration. 

He is an earnest youngster, becoming more jovial each day as he blooms. 

Tommy is a handsome Bully mix wearing a steel-grey tuxedo, 1 year of age and neutered, and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

His background is mostly unknown, but at the time of rescue he had large amounts of candle wax deeply embedded in his coat across his back. 

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for capturing his sweet soul in these brand new portraits.

Don't I deserve someone who will never fail me?

In mid-August, Vivian was pregnant and abandoned.  A volunteer found her tied to a tree without food, water, or a blanket. 

We put out an immediate plea on social media for a foster hero, and thanks to you sharing her post, it succeeded.  Vivian was in labor as the foster parent arrived and over the following hours gave birth to 6 babies. 

Since then Vivian has raised her puppies in a loving home environment.  She is now spayed and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA (www.nevadaspca.org).  (Her puppies will be ready in the days/weeks to come.) 

Vivian is an endearing, friendly small Bully mix, 2 years of age.  Please help her find a responsible home so that she never has to experience rejection and abandonment again.
