Gazelle


Gazelle, now recovered from starvation, beautifully debuts for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

She is a Jack Russell Terrier & Italian Greyhound mix with unique coloration, 2 years young and spayed, and good with other sweet dogs. 

At the time of rescue she was at another shelter and emaciated with a bulging spine and ribs.

Sonny

Sonny is comfortable being cradled in kind arms. 

He is an adorable, playful baby boy debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Sonny is a Chihuahua mix (expected to remain small in size), 3 months of age and neutered, and great with other dogs. 

He was at another shelter that asked for our help due to his birth defect, a permanently dislocated knee in one of his hind legs. 

Sonny walks and plays without interruption and surgery is not needed at this time (and may never be needed, but please have your veterinarian monitor his development through the years).

Amazon





Amazon is delighted to sit with you on the couch or hang out with you in the backyard.

Toys don't interest her much, but having fun with people she cares about gives her incredible joy.

Amazon is a Mastiff & Bully mix with tiger/brindle coloring, 3 years young and spayed, awaiting adoption at Nevada SPCA.

Thank you to Pet'ographique for capturing her personality so beautifully in these new portraits.

Brook -- Before & After



Brook likes to be held gently, sneaking kisses on your cheeks.  She is so grateful for kindness and care. 

Brook is a Poodle, 5 years of age and spayed, good with other sweet dogs, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

At the time of rescue Brook was on the Vegas streets with no sign of responsible ownership, terribly neglected, and severely injured (a dislocated leg, consistent with being struck by a vehicle). 

Thanks to the generosity of donors, we had hip surgery provided for her (which has been successful) and Hair of the Dog spa beautifully cleaned and groomed her for a fresh start. 

Please help find someone wonderful to adopt Brook so she will always be cherished and safe.

Zoey




Zoey is now a bright burst of sunshine!

Adopt her today at Nevada SPCA for a lifetime of smiles and unconditional devotion.

At the time of rescue Zoey was at another shelter with hundreds of bite wounds, mainly on the sides of her body, some deep, and veterinarians speculated she had been attacked by a pack of dogs or coyotes.

Under veterinary guidance, staff and volunteers have been treating and cleaning her wounds for the past 5 weeks and Zoey has healed beautifully. She triumphantly debuts for adoption today.

Zoey is a small, slender Bully mix with golden eyes, 1 year young and spayed, terrific with people, but she cannot be around other animals.

Please help us find her a responsible home where she will be showered with love and protected from violence.

Zoey is featured in this video with Zak Bagans, who reassures her that she will heal and find love.

Breeze

Breeze, now triumphantly recovered from severe burns, is ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

She was at another shelter and needed our help.  Breeze had reportedly been stuck in a man's car engine.  Unable to remove her, he drove the car to the shelter, resulting in her serious injuries on her back and hips. 

Breeze has thrived with months of loving care from staff and volunteers.  She purrs in your arms when you hold her and follows you around to remain in your presence. 

Breeze is a lovely tabby, 4 years of age and spayed.  Please visit and ask for Breeze by name.

Hold Trisha gently and let her melt your heart.  She relaxes in your arms and glows with kindness.

Special thanks to Hair of the Dog spa for her stunning grooming transformation.

Butterfly



Butterfly's care-free innocence has been perfectly captured by the amazing Pet'ographique in these new portraits.  Please share them and help this young girl find a loving, forever home.

Many of you will recall that Butterfly was pregnant when we rescued her before Christmas, then gave birth just one hour later! She was an exceptional mother and her well-raised puppies have since been spayed/neutered and adopted. 

Butterfly is a small Bully mix, 2 years of age and spayed, awaiting adoption at Nevada SPCA.  She adores people, but cannot be around other dogs.

Hunter & Cooper

Hunter & Cooper, reunited soul-mates, debut for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Yesterday, during a rescue trip to another shelter, Hunter, a Cocker Spaniel, was lethargic and refused to go into a crate in the SUV. 

He watched our staff member load the other rescued dogs in, then suddenly leaped over the seat euphorically when he spotted Cooper, a Norwich Terrier mix.  (The boys had been together in their previous home.) 

Hunter sat faithfully by Cooper's crate and wagged his tail for the whole trip to Nevada SPCA. 

Both boys are 7-9 years of age, neutered, housetrained, and good with other dogs.  An adult-only home is needed due to Hunter's growling -- it's the way he talks, but never bites -- nevertheless, to err on the safe side, an experienced owner is required.

Colby -- Before & After

Colby, March 20

Colby, March 19

Colby, March 19
Colby is brightening and understanding that loveless days are over and that his future may be full of adoration.

He is a super cute Miniature Poodle, 10 years of age and neutered, good with other dogs, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Colby was at another shelter that asked for our help due to his severe neglect.

 Special thanks to Hair of the Dog spa for cleaning and grooming him so handsomely to help give Colby a fresh start.

Buffy -- Before & After



Buffy, the gentlest angel, is in the twilight of her life and needs a hero.  She is not suffering and still brings kindness and love. 

Buffy is a Cocker Spaniel, a teenager, spayed girl, good with dogs, ready for adoption (or forever foster) at Nevada SPCA. 

Buffy is deaf and mostly blind, but she likes being in the sunshine and in bright rooms where she can partially see her surroundings. 

She is so docile that she won't eat out of your hand, but instead waits for you to place the food or treats down so she doesn't accidentally bite you. 

Buffy deserves a hero.  She was surrendered to us in severely neglected condition by her previous owner. 

Special thank you to Hair of the Dog spa for cleaning and grooming her to give her a fresh start.

Rock, young at heart at 13 years


Rock is so elated to be here, acting like a puppy at 13 years of age. 

This 110-pound boy is especially keen on thanking the woman on our staff who rescued him from another shelter and transported him to safety, and he jumps up on her (though she weighs less than he does) to shower her with kisses of gratitude. 

Rock is a Mastiff mix, neutered, housetrained, and exceptionally friendly, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Rock loves taking baths and gets along fine with most submissive dogs of all sizes.

Uno needs a hero.

Uno enjoys sitting upright like a meerkat. 

When you tell him it's time for treats he throws his front arms above his head in an enthusiastic hallelujah! and his whole body wiggles with joy. 

Uno is a young Chihuahua, 1 year of age and neutered, good with other dogs, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Uno was at another shelter that asked for our help.  He had sustained massive trauma (from unknown source), resulting in partial blindness and neurological damage. 

Uno cannot walk in a straight line, but instead shuffles and walks in a crawling manner to get where he wants to go. 

He is not suffering and he has many years of unconditional love to share with the person who becomes his lifelong hero.

Lady -- Before & After



At the time we rescued Lady from another shelter, her previous owner had neglected her so severely she could not see through the tangles and filth in front of her eyes. 

Hair of the Dog spa groomed her and revealed her expressive eyes.  Lady's "after" picture is so powerful because you can see her full of hope. 

Lady is a Poodle & Shih-Tzu mix, 9 years of age, good with other dogs, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Fitzgerald, Hemingway, Salinger, and Twain

Fitzgerald, social and chatty baby boy.

Hemingway, easy-going and affectionate baby boy.

Salinger, adventurous and athletic baby boy.

Twain, spunky baby boy, full of personality.
Fitzgerald, Hemingway, Salinger, and Twain are adorable baby brothers debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Since their rescue the boys have been lovingly raised and socialized in a foster home.  Their foster mom says they are very insightful and resourceful, able to turn anything into a toy. 

All four are initially shy, but snuggle once they get to know and trust you. 

The boys are now 3 months of age and neutered, and they may thrive best in homes with other cats or kittens for companionship.  Please kitten-proof your home for their safety.

Jasper

We wish we could envelop Jasper in a bubble of kindness to be absolutely certain he never knows violence again. 

At the time of rescue Jasper was at another shelter that asked for our help due to severe trauma, that included bruising across his body and wheezing breath. 

We don't know what Jasper endured, but he still believes in human kindness and he is drawn to gentle people and dogs. 

Jasper is a Corgi & Chihuahua mix, 5 years of age and neutered, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Dakota -- Before & After



Dakota dances to win your attention and approval. 

She is a precious Toy Poodle, 1 year young, now spayed and debuting for adoption at Nevada SPCA. Dakota enjoys other dogs. 

At the time of rescue she startled a woman by walking into her office building in a commercial district, in deplorable condition, with no sign of responsible ownership. 

Thank you very much to Hair of the Dog spa, which so beautifully cleaned and groomed her. 

Please help us find a home where she will be treasured, never to know neglect again.

Lana -- Before & After




Lana, a Silky Terrier getting a fresh start at 12 years of age, debuts for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Included here are her two pictures taken this morning, along with her Before & After pictures taken at Hair of the Dog spa, which generously cleaned her up and gave her a sweet new look. 

Lana loves being held and reassured.  She is gentle and humble, and good with other dogs too. 

Lana had been at another shelter and needed our help. 

Please help find someone wonderful for her!
