Mishka

Mishka's cutest behaviors include chasing after golf balls and curling up against your shoulder for naps. 

She is a lovely young girl with a calm demeanor and she is ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

Mishka is 2 years of age and spayed. She needed us because the cats in her previous home were attacking her. 

We believe a gentle home environment is ideal for Mishka.

"The Boston Puppies" need a foster hero.


"The Boston Puppies" -- Tracy and her brothers DeCarlo,Gary, and Tom -- need a foster parent please for approximately 5 weeks. 
 
If you can help, please visit Nevada SPCA in person and ask for DJ.

The babies have been in two loving foster homes already since their rescue. They are affectionate and playful, and enjoy playing with cats. They are about 7 weeks of age. Their mother, Barbie, also rescued, is a Boston Terrier & Chihuahua mix. Their teeth are hurting her and she no longer wants to be around them. (Barbie will be spayed soon and ready for adoption.)

We are hoping for a foster home where all four can remain together for continuing socialization, or at least fostered in pairs of two so that each has a sibling companion at all times. Thank you.

Winston

Winston is tiny (6 pounds), but he has firm and strong resolve to never let anyone hurt him ever again. He may put up a gruff and grumpy demeanor to hide his fear, but it's a pleading demand to spare him further pain.

Winston accepts kindness from people he trusts. He wants to love and be accepted. He has enormous potential and will continue improving in a very experienced, adult-only home.

Winston is a Chihuahua, 8 years of age, good with other dogs, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.  He may adjust best in a home with a sister or brother dog.
 
We rescued him from another shelter.

 He is wonderfully friendly and outgoing, a Labrador Retriever, 5 years of age and neutered, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Vader is housetrained and good with dogs and kids. 

He became homeless due to no fault of his own (his previous owners' housing situation).

Cindy & Chevy

Cindy & Chevy, 12-year-old sweethearts, debut for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 
 
They needed us when their previous owner moved away without them.

Please help find Erika a quiet and loving home.

They are inseparable and like to always be at each others' side.

Now, many weeks later and 7.6 pounds, Jules lifts his head up, kisses people, and he's ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA.

Treats make him so happy that spreading them throughout the day in small portions will always give him something delicious to look forward to. 

Chandler is a super cute and young Terrier & Toy mix (18 pounds), 3 years of age and neutered, good with other dogs, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

He is terrific with cats, dogs, and kids, plus housetrained too.

Please come meet this charismatic boy!

Edward



Edward is a handsome, bright-eyed young boy about to discover what a loving home feels like. Please help him find a hero.

Edward and several more dogs were confiscated from a home where they were severely neglected. Their previous owner was convicted. The shelter housing them asked for a transfer to Nevada SPCA for socialization and special needs adoptions. All of the dogs were transferred to Nevada SPCA this week and Edward is the first of the group ready to be adopted.

Most of Edward's life has been spent in a kennel while his previous owner awaited trial. He has never experienced a loving home, so he needs your kind guidance and patience. Edward is eager to please, and quite intelligent, so we believe he will continue to pick up more good behaviors quickly in an experienced home.

Edward is a Dutch Shepherd mix, perhaps with Belgian Malinois, 1 year of age, now neutered and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Paladin is a friendly Labrador Retriever mix, 2 years young, a neutered boy, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 
 
He needs a one-dog household (because even seeing another dog can agitate him and make him fearful).

She is a small Chow Chow (believed to be at least 3/4 Chow Chow), 2 years of age and spayed, and good with other dogs.

Please visit and ask for Gertie by name.

Perry

Perry and her brother were just found in distress behind a grocery store, less than a day old, with their mother nowhere in sight. Here she is just minutes ago accepting care and nourishment from Lani, a staff member who is now her surrogate mother.

We cannot say thank you enough to foster parents who are heroes for newborns like Perry (pictured here) and other fragile animals, and to all of you who support Nevada SPCA with donations of funds or animal rescue supplies.
