Matisse -- Before & After



Matisse is a precious, 6-pound Yorkie-Poo who needs your patience as he adjusts to a loving home and your expectations. 

He is very kind and humble, 8 years of age, neutered, good with dogs, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

He has diminished vision in his left eye, so please take extra safety precautions around pools, stairs, and other potential dangers. 

Special thanks to Hair of the Dog Spa for his grooming.

Cora's Babies

Rose, gentle and bashful.

Romeo may cry when he wants you to pick him up.

Valentino, very lovable and affectionate.
Rose and her baby brothers, Romeo and Valentino, are precious Chihuahua puppies debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

You may remember their mother, Cora (pictured below), who was adopted last month. 

At the time of rescue from a suspected backyard breeder, Cora's babies were just 10 days old.  We placed mom and puppies in a nurturing foster home and they were raised and socialized with kittens and bunnies. 

Cora's puppies are now 3 months of age and spayed/neutered.  Please carefully puppy-proof your home and yard for their safety.

All three have temperaments best suited for a gentle home environment.

Cora, their mother, was adopted last month.

Arabella


During pictures this morning Arabella was waving her front paw at the women she wanted to meet.

She is a large (71 pounds) young Dutch Shepherd mix, 1 year of age, spayed girl, housetrained, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Some men, seemingly those wearing glasses, frighten her, and Arabella is also afraid of other dogs.

She was at another shelter that asked for our help.  Her previous family reportedly surrendered her for being "too playful" and they were refusing to let her on the furniture.

Arabella has tremendous potential in an experienced, gentle home where she can continue blooming.

Gregory -- Before & After




Gregory is a solemn, 13-year-old Maltese mix recovering from deplorable neglect. 

At the time of rescue he was at another shelter that asked for our help due to his eye infections and foxtail infestation. 

Gregory is steadily recovering weight and energy, but a very gentle home is what he needs.  He likes other dogs and may do best in a home with a calm sister or brother dog for companionship. 

Special thanks to Hair of the Dog Spa for his grooming transformation.

Roman -- Before & After



Roman is a tender-hearted Bichon Frise & Poodle mix debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

He is 4 years of age, neutered, good with dogs, and very friendly but also very shy. 

Roman was at another shelter that asked for our help due to being wounded (on his neck, cause unknown). 

He is now healed, and groomed (thanks to Hair of the Dog Spa), and ready to join a stable, loving forever home.

Love us dearly, forever.

Pompeii, baby boy, very fond of bonding with cats & dogs.

Bombay, baby boy, enjoys sitting in your lap for attention.

Cabaret, baby girl, delights in snuggling and cuddling.

Parquet, baby boy, likes to talk and answer your questions.
Cabaret and her brothers -- Bombay, Parquet, and Bombay -- have been lovingly raised and socialized in a nurturing foster home since their rescue. 

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

Please kitten-proof your home carefully for their safety.

Uno awaits a hero.




Uno hopes you will let him melt your heart, as his physical disabilities in no way reduce his capacity to love. 

He is a young Chi-Weenie (Chihuahua & Dachshund mix), 1 year of age and neutered, good with other dogs, and awaiting adoption at Nevada SPCA.

We rescued Uno from another shelter.  He had sustained massive trauma (from an unknown source) resulting in partial blindness in his right eye and neurological damage.  Uno walks in a shuffling, crawling manner. 

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

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for this wonderfully cute new portraits to help find a hero.

Calliope

Calliope is a graceful and polite little lady ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

She is 5 years of age, spayed, fine with other cats, and best suited for a calm home environment. 

At the time of rescue earlier this spring, Calliope and her two babies were found abandoned in a box outside of a veterinary clinic.  (Her babies are doing well and remaining in foster care until they are old enough to be spayed/neutered.)

Innocent, angelic souls rescued from a dumpster.

Sandra with her babies, Jared and Sally
Horrific tragedy has been prevented for Sandra and her babies and now they need a loving foster home.  Please share this post to help.

Earlier this morning, a man and his friends heard kittens crying and determined their sounds were coming from a dumpster outside of a fast food restaurant.  He looked in and saw the babies at their mother's side.  He reached in carefully to see if mom would let him help the kittens out, and she began purring. 

(Though mom could jump out, we suspect she could not get her babies out, so she remained at their side.)

We named mom Sandra and her babies, Jared and Sally.  The kittens are approximately 5-6 weeks of age.  The foster commitment will be for approximately 4 weeks.

If you can help Sandra and her babies, or any other rescued fragile animals in urgent need, please visit Nevada SPCA today before 5pm and ask for Katelyn.  Thank you.

More ways to help.

Raphael -- Before & After



Sweet little Raphael is ready to know what a loving home feels like. 

He is a Toy Poodle, 5 years of age, good with other dogs, now neutered and debuting for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

Raphael was found abandoned on the streets in deplorable condition.

Paladin, a baby who likes to help other babies.


Paladin, on the right, holding and cleaning a motherless newborn underneath him.
Paladin is an extraordinary 3-month-old Siamese kitten, a neutered boy, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

When just weeks old, he was rescued from an abandoned cardboard box in a department store parking lot.

Paladin has since been raised in a loving foster home with cats and dogs. In recent weeks Paladin began helping his foster mom, a Nevada SPCA staff member, care for the rescued motherless newborn kittens she was also fostering, holding and cleaning them after she bottle-fed them.

Please help find a foster hero for Natalie and Olivia.

Natalie (pictured here) and her sister, Olivia, rescued this morning, need a nurturing foster home with bottle-feeding every few hours.  Please share this post to help find a hero.  If you can foster them, please visit Nevada SPCA in person before 4pm and ask for Lani.

Natalie and Olivia are about 2 weeks of age.  They were found crawling out from underneath a family's home this morning, appearing very weak, and the homeowner believed they were trying to find their mother.  Both girls are eating well and now stable.  Their foster commitment will be for approximately 3 months.

More details and ways to help.

Patrick



Patrick is a sporty junior puppy, almost fully grown at 9 months of age and only 20 pounds, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

He is reportedly a Beagle mix, blended with many other breeds, neutered, and good with other playful dogs. 

Patrick is all about having fun and finding joy everywhere he can.  Please puppy-proof your home and yard for his safety.

We rescued him from another shelter that asked for our help.  He had been in quarantine due to nipping or biting the person who captured him roaming the streets.  But Patrick is very kind and he has excelled in all behavior exams since. 

Please visit and ask for Patrick by name.

Zsa Zsa

Zsa Zsa will greet you right at the door and then roll over asking for a belly rub.

She is an incredibly gorgeous and pleasant girl, a Snowshoe mix, 10 years of age and spayed, polydactyl (extra toes), and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA.

Zsa Zsa was found on the streets by a young boy (and she had no sign of responsible ownership). 

When his parents refused her, the boy begged his neighbors to give her care and they agreed to give her a temporary home.  They discovered she is very polite, compatible with dogs, and likes being brushed.

Please share Zsa Zsa's picture to help her find a responsible, indoor-only, forever home.

Their previous owner said they bought them at a pet store, but they got 'too big'.
