Rico & Cici, soul-mates.

Rico & Cici, a tiny pair of soul-mates, stayed strong for each other through a divorce and very hard times of financial woes. 

Now homeless and having lost everything, at least they are safe and still have each other, forever. 

Please help us find a hero for Rico & Cici.  They are very gentle, 9 -10 years of age, housetrained & crate-trained, compatible with cats and dogs. 

Rico, a neutered boy, Longhair Chihuahua, is more outgoing.  Cici, a spayed girl, Yorkshire Terrier, has lost her teeth and she likes for Rico to lead the way for her.

Iris

Iris, a baby girl now beaming with hope and joy, offers a lifetime of puppy kisses and unconditional love in exchange for a stable forever home. 

She is a delightful Toy Fox Terrier & Chihuahua mix puppy, 3 months of age, now spayed and debuting for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

Iris has made great progress in the short time she's been with us.  At the time of rescue she was "unwanted" and timid and being passed around from friend-to-friend. 

We placed Iris in a kennel with a big sister dog for comfort and guidance, which worked beautifully in helping her feel welcome and safe. 

Please visit and ask for Iris by name.

Ranger

Ranger ensures no one around her experiences any loneliness. 

She answers to her name, listens to you carefully, and meows in with her thoughts and feelings throughout your conversations.  Ranger wants to hear from you and expects you to listen and engage her in return. 

Rub her ears and she is in heaven. 

Ranger is a brown tabby with white, 7 years of age and spayed, ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

She needed us when her previous owners moved away and abandoned her.  Fortunately, neighbors stepped forward to get Ranger off of the streets and into safety.

Cinderella

Cinderella is a young girl with a beautiful soul, triumphantly ready for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

At the time of rescue she had been hit by a car.  Her hind right leg had a large open wound, but incredibly her leg bones had not broken. 

Cinderella is now healed and ready to join a peaceful, loving, indoor-only forever home. 

She loves to be cradled like a baby in your arms.  She is a Siamese mix, 2 years of age and spayed, fine with other cats.

Lancelot

Lancelot is a big boy with a gentle presence. 

Though mostly blind, he can see large shapes, so he has no trouble jumping onto chairs or finding his food bowl and litter box. 

We rescued Lancelot from another shelter.  Since then he has lived in an office at Nevada SPCA (www.nevadaspca.org), waiting at the door to greet us every time we return. 

Lancelot is a 19-pound medium-hair, 3 years of age and neutered, compatible with other cats who respect his personal space needs, and he's now ready for adoption. 

Please help us find Lancelot a lifelong hero.

Juliet

Juliet is ready to bless someone gentle with her unconditional devotion for life. 

She is a petite Maltese mix, 8 years of age and spayed, good with other dogs, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Juliet's future must be infinitely better than her past.  She was at another shelter that asked for our help due to her very poor condition.  Besides neglect, she had sustained massive trauma (cause unknown). 

Now that she's feeling better, Juliet's bubbly temperament is emerging more every day!

Princess

Princess is a thoughtful little girl ready to bless someone with her unconditional devotion. 

She is a Malt-Tzu (Maltese & Shih-Tzu mix), 12 years of age and spayed, good with other gentle dogs, and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

Princess survived severe neglect, and likely worse.  At the time of rescue she was at another shelter that asked for our help due to her broken elbow and severe dental problems. 

Princess is now healed and we had dental care provided for her (cleaning and 9 teeth extractions). 

Please come meet Princess and let her steal your heart. 

Sabrina

Sabrina is a young Pekingese with a beautiful spirit and she loves to cuddle. 

She is 2 years of age, spayed, good with other dogs, and triumphantly debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Sabrina has been waiting for this special day for many weeks.  At the time of rescue she was at another shelter that asked for our help.  Sabrina had sustained severe trauma to her back (from unknown cause) and had a perilous twisted hernia. 

Her back has improved and her hernia has been repaired. 

Sabrina is now ready to share her unconditional love with someone who will make a lifetime commitment to her.

Wolfy


You'll be smiling the second you meet this jovial, engaging youngster! 

Wolfy has unique cuteness -- a volunteer mentioned he is like a little polar bear with a curly-Q tail -- perhaps a mix of Tibetan Terrier & Miniature Schnauzer.  Wolfy is 1 year of age, neutered, good with other dogs, housetrained, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

He was at another shelter that asked for our help. 

Wolfy apparently became homeless due to chewing a stairway rail.  (But chewing is natural and necessary, especially at this age, so the key is directing his chewing onto appropriate toys.)

Catherine




We are so happy to see Catherine with lots of energy, fascinated by her environments, and restored to a healthy weight. 

This baby girl was emaciated from starvation at the time of rescue, listless from lack of nourishment. 

Catherine is a Lop mix bunny, now 7 months of age, spayed, and triumphantly ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA in our Lovebugs Room. 

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for celebrating her recovery with these incredibly cute portraits.

Serena



Serena, a sensitive and gorgeous young girl, has improved so much that she can now debut for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

She is a Great Dane with harlequin color patterning, 1 year of age and spayed, and reportedly housetrained. 

When we rescued Serena three months ago, this past autumn from another shelter, she was emotionally distraught and irritable.  At first she refused the kindness offered by staff and volunteers, but she gradually settled into her routine and realized she was safe. 

Serena's remarkable emotional improvement has been accelerating and this progress can continue in an experienced, adult-only home with Great Dane knowledge.  Serena may be fine with large dogs, but reportedly cannot be around small dogs or any other small animals. 

Please help find her a wonderful home where she will continue to reach her full loving potential.

Molly

Molly is bouncing back from heartbreak and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

She is an intelligent, outgoing, and friendly youngster, a medium-size Heinz 57 with Australian Cattle dog, 2 years of age and now spayed. 

At the time of rescue Molly was in battered condition and in peril from complications with her pregnancy -- she was in labor but unable to birth her babies. 

We rushed Molly to a veterinary hospital for emergency surgery.  The veterinarians were able to save her life, but her babies had deceased. 

We want to find Molly a peaceful, stable home where she can live care-free, showered with love daily.

Stella & Sampson




Stella & Sampson, a well-behaved pair, enjoy cuddling, playing, and napping in the sun. 

They are 9-year-old soul-mates, housetrained & crate-trained, good with other dogs, and awaiting adoption at Nevada SPCA.  Stella is a spayed girl, Chihuahua, and Sampson is a neutered boy, Miniature Pinscher. 

They became homeless because a member of their previous family was allergic to them. 

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for these extraordinary portraits which capture their spirits.

Mermaid's new portraits.




Mermaid is a junior puppy with tremendous loving potential and we want to share these beautiful new portraits of her, courtesy of Pet'ographique

You may remember we rescued Mermaid last autumn from another shelter when she was in distress from a crushed hind leg.  She has adjusted well to life on three legs. 

We could have adopted Mermaid long ago, but she does not like other dogs and needs a one-dog household. 

She is reserved and tentative with new people, but warms as she understands she can trust you. 

Mermaid is a very small Bully mix (half the size of most), 10 months of age, spayed, and awaiting adoption at Nevada SPCA.

Duchess


Duchess is a young German Shepherd with majestic beauty. 

But she has no self-esteem because it is clear she has been abused.  Duchess wants to bond with people, but she's worried she's going to get hit. 

Staff and volunteers are very patient with her and she relaxes and her fears subside. 

She is 1 year of age and spayed, reportedly housetrained and crate-trained, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

She was at another shelter that asked for our help due to her timidity. 

Please help find Duchess a hero.

John, baby boy

Carlie, baby girl

Janice, baby girl

Lindell, baby boy

Billy, baby boy

Cupcake & her newborns, near the time of rescue
Cupcake's Puppies debut for adoption today at Nevada SPCA!

You may remember their rescue last autumn during our plea for a foster hero.  Since then Cupcake raised and socialized her babies in comfortable, loving home environment.  Her babies are now 3 months of age, spayed/neutered, and ready for lifelong home.  The three girls are Carlie, Grace (already adopted), Janice, and Sydney.  The boys are Billy, Lindell, and JohnCupcake is a small Bully mix and we have mixed information on whether dad is a Boxer or King Shepherd.

[Note: Cupcake is still in foster care, doing well, and she will soon be ready for adoption too.]

Briggs




Briggs adores people and some of his favored activities include playing under blankets, accompanying you on walks, and going for car rides. 

He is a slender Bully mix, 3 years of age and neutered, housetrained & crate-trained, awaiting adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

Briggs would have been adopted long ago, but he gets nervous around children and needs to be the only dog in the home. 

His potential is enormous and we hope you will help find him a terrific, lifelong home. 

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for these four new portraits for Briggs.

Boo



Boo is a youngster full of personality and he's ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA.  He is a Florida White rabbit, 2 years of age, and now neutered. 

Boo is personable and likes stretching out so you can pet him.  He is so eager for his daily salad greens that he tries to "air-catch" them as we place them in his bunny condo. 

Boo was found abandoned at a construction site. 

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

Cheri

Cheri does not yet understand that she is safe.  We could hardly photograph her this morning because our team kept taking turns hugging and kissing her with reassurance. 

Cheri is so devastated from abuse that she won't walk on a leash, so we carry her everywhere she goes. 

She is a small Labrador Retriever mix, 4 years of age, now spayed and debuting for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

Cheri's past is mostly unknown.  We rescued her from another shelter and it appears her previous owner repeatedly bred her for puppies. 

Please help find Cheri a hero.

Selene

Selene is so comfortable in your arms that she will rub her cheeks against yours to show her gratitude for your kindness. 

She is a young girl with magical eyes (traces of copper & gold), a shorthair polydactyl (extra toes), 1 year of age, spayed, ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

At the time of rescue Selene had been hit by a car and her hind right leg was crushed beyond repair (requiring amputation). 

Selene has now healed well and continues to adjust to life on three legs.  Please help us find someone who will cherish her, shower her with love, and always keep her safely indoors.

Tom Tom


Tom Tom is almost 14 years of age, but cheerfully tell him that he'll soon be in a loving home and his spirits soar and he gets a youthful look on his face. 

He is a gentle Chihuahua, terrific with other dogs, a neutered boy, ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

Tom Tom is mostly blind in his right eye (due to old injury or birth defect). 

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

Carl




Carl is a big, 140-pound teddy bear who bonds very closely with people he trusts. 

He is a Rottweiler, 4 years of age and neutered, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Carl is very wary of strangers, especially men, so an experienced home is a must.  We rescued him from another shelter and his only background information is that an officer had to confiscate him from his previous home (for reasons unknown). 

Metallic, gun-like objects, including large cameras, scare him. 

Carl has enormous loving potential and needs a hero.

Athena

Athena is an exceptionally affectionate junior kitten who loves to snuggle and she melts in your arms when you hold her. 

She also adores other cats, especially cats with maternal personalities who like to cuddle and groom her. 

Athena is 10 months of age, now spayed and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA.  Please kitten-proof your home for her safety. 

She is mostly blind, due to underdeveloped eye sockets, and daily eye-drops help keep her eyes properly moistened.
