Brenda & Jason


When we rescued Brenda from another shelter and lifted her into the SUV, she was ecstatic to see her brother, Jason, already sitting on the seat and smiling at her.  Brenda leaped on him and smothered his face with licks, overjoyed to be reunited!

Brenda & Jason are now together forever and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.  They are 1 year of age, spayed/neutered, great with other dogs, and approximately 40-50 pounds.  One of their parents was reportedly a Border Collie, but we see blends of many different breeds, making each perfectly unique.

Carmine

Carmine is all smiles this morning following 8 weeks of successful healing and he is now ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

He is a Lhasa Apso, 6 years of age and neutered, and good with other dogs. 

At the time of rescue Carmine was at another shelter, in peril with infected burns on his back.  We don't know what caused the burns, but malice is the most likely culprit because Carmine exhibits many other signs of being abused, including severe head-shyness. 

Carmine is ready for a fresh start and he wants to believe in people.  Experienced, adult-only home required for his continued progress. 

Please help find a hero for Carmine.

Foster heroes for moms and their newborns.

Samantha with Darren and David
Samantha asks for a comfortable, peaceful foster home where she can nurture and raise her 5 newborns for approximately 3 months until they are old enough to be spayed/neutered and prepare for adoption. 

If you can help, please visit Nevada SPCA in person and ask for Cindy.

Samantha is pictured her with two of her sons, Darren and David.  All five babies need to remain with her. 

Samantha is a terrific mom.  She keeps kissing her babies (and our staff holding them).  At the time of rescue Samantha and another young & small Bully mix named Zoie were found tied up and abandoned at a gas station, both in late stages of pregnancy. 

(Zoie and her 8 newborns also need a loving foster home.)

Enormous need for foster heroes for fragile lives!

Randy and 41 more fragile, rescued animals await nurturing foster homes! Please share this post to help find heroes!

We deeply appreciate everyone's help during this most difficult year yet for motherless newborns and pregnant animals found in peril throughout the metro area. If you can foster, please visit Nevada SPCA in person and ask for Katelyn.

Randy is a Chihuahua puppy, about 8 weeks of age, found alone with his mother nowhere in sight.

30 more puppies, including newborns, and 11 motherless kittens, need the tender care and comfort of a home environment for their physical and emotional well-being until they are old enough to be spayed/neutered.

Boo Boo

Boo Boo, a 4-year-old Pekingese, is so outgoing that it's easy to forget he is blind. 

He is exceptionally loving and trusting too, confident that he can walk at your side knowing you will certainly protect him from harm. 

At the time of rescue Boo Boo had already lost his vision due to severe and painful glaucoma in both eyes.  He has recovered well (from enucleation surgery) and he's eager to become a valued member of a loving family. 

Boo Boo is good with dogs, neutered, and triumphantly debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.  Please very carefully take thorough safety precautions for him throughout your home and yard.

Bunny asks for a hero.




Bunny chirps and begins purring when you call her name.  She is a social baby girl and adores the companionship of people and cats who like to cuddle with her. 

Bunny is an angelic kitten with blue & cream & white coloring (dilute calico), 4 months of age and spayed, and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

Bunny needs a hero.  Due to a birth defect (spina bifida) she has incomplete development of her spinal cord.  She walks by hopping and can even jump small distances with the same motions. 

Please take extra thorough precautions for her safety throughout your home.

They were rescued from a home where they were 'unwanted'. 

All four are a bit shy and need more socialization. 

(They have two more siblings who will be ready for adoption too in the days to come.)

Ronny -- Before & After



To see Ronny is to want to hug and reassure him. 

He is gentle, yet very playful, and he adores people and dogs. 

Ronny is a junior puppy, 6 months of age, a Terry-Poo (Terrier & Poodle mix), now neutered and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.  Please puppy-proof your home and yard for his safety.

Special thanks to Hair of the Dog spa for grooming him and helping him recover from a neglectful previous home.

Clark, Hal, and Olivia

Clark

Hal

Olivia
Clark, Hal, and Olivia are precious babies now ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA.  They are 3 months of age and spayed/neutered. 

Clark is the talker and loves belly rubs.  Hal is polite and gives nose kisses.  Olivia purrs constantly and melts eyes with her pleading looks. 

At the time of rescue the babies were being handed away to strangers in a store parking lot.  Since then they have been lovingly raised and socialized in a foster home.

Please kitten-proof your home for their safety and protection.

Bravery




Bravery coos like a baby at times and he's great with cats and dogs. 

Now no longer in pain -- he was found neglected on the streets with bulging, painful eyes blinded by severe glaucoma -- Bravery is thriving and ready to debut for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

He healed from his enucleation surgery (removal of his eyes) in a wonderful foster home.  Bravery's foster parents said he is terrific with cats and dogs and can learn his way around the house and backyard within just a few days.  He loves being around people and animals and he is afraid of being alone.  They said Bravery is housetrained too and will bark if he gets lost in the backyard and needs you to pick him up.

Bravery is a tiny Chihuahua, 12 years of age, and neutered.  Please help find him a hero.

Maria asking for a hero.



Maria, sweet 16, gently taps your arm for your attention and reassurance.  Once you make eye contact with her, she begins purring and rubbing her head in your hands.

We need your help please finding a hero for Maria.  She is a silver & white shorthair with jewel-green eyes, previously declawed (all four paws), spayed, and awaiting adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

Maria is on a special diet (W/D). 

Thank you to Pet'ographique for capturing her spirit in these beautiful portraits.

Foster heroes needed please!

Angelo

Monica
8 rescued motherless kittens so far today need loving foster homes.  Please visit Nevada SPCA in person and ask for Katelyn if you can help.

Angelo, a Lynx point Siamese kitten, was almost run over in the street.  The woman pulled the car over and he walked right up to her for help.  His foster commitment is for approximately 3-4 weeks.

Monica, a medium-hair Lynx point Siamese mix kitten, was found in peril from heatstroke and required emergency hospitalization to save her life.  Her foster commitment is for approximately 2-3 weeks.

Noah


Noah is a solemn boy and his spirit is beginning to reawaken with kindness. 

Noah was at another shelter that asked for our help.  He had numerous wounds, including a possible chemical burn. 

Noah is an Australian Cattle Dog mix, 1 year young, neutered, good with other dogs, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Noah is so afraid of strangers that he flattens himself on the ground and only shuffle-walks.  But once he trusts you he will lift his head and begin to relax. 

Please help us find a home where Noah will know only peace and stability from now on.

They are tiny, lovable babies, Chihuahua puppies, now 3 months of age and spayed/neutered, and they enjoy other dogs.

Ruby Rose needs a foster home.

Ruby Rose, a baby girl who survived being run over by a car, needs a foster home for several more weeks while she continues to heal.  If you can help, please visit Nevada SPCA in person and ask for Lani.

When Ruby Rose's owner died, the landlord reportedly put all of her belongings, plus an adult cat named Heather, and Heather's four kittens (including Ruby Rose), in the front yard.  Neighbors witnessed Ruby Rose getting run over, crushing her pelvis, and rushed her and her mom and siblings to us. 

[Heather has been adopted already and Ruby Rose's siblings will be ready for adoption soon.]

We rescued these six Chihuahuas yesterday from another shelter.

This is the most difficult time of year for animals (fireworks, extreme heat, motherless newborns, pregnant animals, vacations, more), so the shelters and rescue organizations are in overdrive helping each other. 

Jericho, Penn, Porgy, Sylvia, Toby, and Ty have widely varying personalities, but all have loving natures and long for the stability of a responsible forever home.

All six debut for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Jericho, neutered boy, 2 years young, sporty & fun-loving, good with other dogs.

Penn, neutered boy, 1 year young, 6-pound cutie, good with other dogs.

Porgy, neutered boy, 3 years young, cheery & radiant, good with other dogs.

Steven
Amethyst, Garnet, and Pearl, and their brother Steven, debut for adoption on Independence Day at 10am at Nevada SPCA. 

Since their rescue from a parking lot, the babies have been lovingly raised and socialized in a foster home. 

Their foster mom, Mel, took these terrific pictures and described them as follows: Amethyst is the wise one who lets the others get into adventures or trouble first, Garnet purrs day & night when playing or sleeping, Pearl is so loving she does 'happy feet' for hours at a time, and Steven is the athlete who chases and catches all of the toys. 

The kittens are now 3 months of age and spayed/neutered. 

Please consider adopting a pair for lifetime love and companionship.

Bridgette -- Before & After



Bridgette is now beaming and jovial, eager to get started with her new life!
