Mustang Sally

Mustang Sally is a tiny, 5-pound cutie with a fearless, giant-sized personality. 
 
She loves being held in your arms, but when it's time to be put back down she mistakenly believes she can just leap out of your hands high above the ground.

Everyone here is falling for her quirky charm. Tell her it's time to do something really fun and Mustang Sally will begin zipping around the room in anticipation and then bite her blanket and shake it. 
 
Also, Mustang Sally eats her meals and treats, but only if you are watching. If you even look away, even for a second, she'll stop eating.

Mustang Sally is a Chihuahua, 8 years of age and spayed, compatible with other dogs, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 
 
We rescued her from another shelter that asked for our help with her dental needs. 
 
Please visit and ask for her by name.

Andre

Andre doesn't yet know he's safe. He's terrified of people and tries to hide in his igloo. 
He needs a gentle hero who can help him gain confidence and reach his full loving potential.

Andre is a 5-pound California Giant guinea pig (sometimes known as "Cuy", a type of guinea pig reportedly bred for human consumption in Peru), about 2 years of age. 

We rescued him from another shelter that asked for our help due to his timidity and enormous size.

Lollipop enjoys other friendly cats. 

She was captured by a kind person who witnessed her nearly get run over by a car. We traced Lollipop's microchip, but her previous owner failed to respond and reclaim her. 

She deserves a responsible home where she will always be safely indoors and treasured as a valued member of the family.

Bessy, Henrietta, Jenny, Pearl, and Polly

Bessy

Henrietta

Jenny

Pearl

Polly
These 5 darling girls -- Bessy, Henrietta, Jenny, Pearl, and Polly -- are friendly guinea pigs ready for adoption in the Lovebugs Room at Nevada SPCA. 

They range in age from 8 months to 2 years. Almost nothing is known about their past except that they were abandoned in a 'night drop' at another shelter, which in turn asked for our help. 

The girls squeal in delight for their daily fresh salads and Timothy hay. 

 Guinea pigs are very social animals and they need to be adopted in pairs, a trio, or altogether (so that each goes home with at least one lifelong companion/sister). 

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for their portraits.

Both are friendly young boys. Balto is an Irish Wolfhound (115 pounds), 1 year of age and neutered. Danny is an Aussie Cattle Dog & German Shepherd mix, 2 years of age and neutered. The boys debut for adoption today at Nevada SPCA and, needless to say, they need to remain together forever.
