Angel needs a hero.

Angel, 10, asks for a very patient and understanding hero.

She is partially blind, reportedly doing better in the daylight and able to go for nice walks, but nearly fully blind at night without bright light. Her hearing is also impaired to some degree.

Angel is a petite Yorkshire Terrier, a spayed girl, fine with other dogs and older kids, and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. We adopted her earlier this year. She was returned for barking when she got disoriented at night.

We believe there are many reasonable and helpful steps that can be taken to help Angel adjust and feel secure. Please share her picture with someone who will be very committed to helping her achieve peace-of-mind during those moments when her sight is mostly gone. Thank you.

Gallagher

Gallagher likes to share his joy. He is a radiant, chocolate & white Corgi mix, 4 years of age, neutered boy, good with other dogs, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Gallagher was at another shelter that asked for our help. He has very thin hair, particularly on his neck and back, believed to be the result of malnutrition and food allergies. 
 
Gallagher has already begun some improvement on a premium, probiotic special diet, though there are patches on his body that may not fully re-grow his coat.

Please share his picture and help find him someone wonderful and to ensure he never knows hunger, neglect, or malnutrition again.

Mickey, Pluto, and Minnie need a foster home please.

7 more motherless kittens just rescued and need loving foster homes too!

Pictured here are Mickey, Pluto, and Minnie, who are about 5 weeks of age, found outdoors without a mother.

If you can help the trio, or any of the other motherless kittens, please visit Nevada SPCA in person before 4pm and ask for Janean.

Please also consider sharing this post to help. Thank you!

Louden

33 of the 35 Blond Angels were rescued in April. Two avoided capture and officers feared they would be preyed upon by coyotes on the vacated property and they kept attempting to save them at every opportunity.

On May 3 the officers captured McCaine (posted last week) and on May 5 they finally captured Louden (pictured here).

Louden is the only non-blond of the 35 Blond Angels. He has mostly charcoal coloration and gold eyes, and he's 3 years of age, now neutered and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA.

Louden is still exceptionally timid, but lets his caretakers handle him without fear of being nipped. This morning he jumped on one of his caretakers' laps for hugs.

Everything is new for Louden and the others. They have never known a loving home before and need your tremendous patience as they develop emotionally and adjust to your lifestyle. (Many of the Blond Angels have already been adopted and their new owners report their eagerness to please and be accepted.)

Please help find a hero for Louden and the remaining Blond Angels for adoption.


Foxy

Foxy, 13, is an intelligent, well-behaved girl asking for a peaceful home where she will have someone appreciative to love.

Foxy is a lovely blend of Aussie Cattle Dog & Shiba Inu. She is housetrained, spayed, and good with cats, dogs, and kids, and ready for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Foxy is terrified of bikes and skateboards, perhaps due to a past trauma, and needs a home where these pieces of equipment are not operated in her presence.

She needed us due to her previous owner's financial hardship.

Trooper

Trooper, 12, a gentle soul, enjoys bonding with adults, kids, cats, and dogs. 

He is a super cute Longhair Chihuahua, housetrained, neutered, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Trooper is blind in his right eye (old injury). 

He needed us when his previous owner began a nomadic lifestyle.

Abby, Teddy, Tina, and Tommy

Abby

Teddy

Tina

Tommy
Abby, Teddy, Tina, and Tommy love to chase the laser pointer. 

They have been well-socialized with cats, dogs, and people in a wonderful foster home since their rescue. 

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

Please kitten-proof your home for their safety.

Dylan needs a foster home please.

Dylan is one of many rescued motherless kittens needing a foster home today please.

Madeline overflows with ecstatic joy when you tell her it's time to have fun. Her tail wiggles her whole body. 

Madeline is a wonderfully happy young girl, 2 years of age, Bully and Bull Terrier mix, spayed, and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

An active lifestyle routine is ideal for this sporty girl.

Estelle

Thanks to weeks of loving care in a foster home, Estelle's spirit is soaring and her jovial personality is emerging.

Mathieu

Mathieu, an endearing and bashful junior puppy, yearns for your approval. Kind words of encouragement are very important to him.

Mathieu is a handsome, medium-size Heinz 57 with Retriever & Ridgeback (including golden eyes, long body and curly-Q tail), 8 months of age, neutered boy, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 
 
He is housetrained and compatible with cats, dogs, and older kids. 
 
Mathieu needed us due to his previous owner's relocation. 
 
Please puppy-proof your home and yard for his safety.

Donovan

Donovan, a junior puppy who survived a dreadful and loveless home, now looks at everything new in the world with awe and wonder. His loving potential is enormous!

Donovan is a Corgi mix, 9 months of age, neutered boy, good with other dogs, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 
 
An experienced owner can help him build confidence. Donovan was denied socialization and attention, so he is very worried about strangers and their intentions. 
 
He has bonded well with the dogs here and may do best in a home with a big sister or brother dog.

Luciano

Luciano, with a whimsical appearance reminiscent of a Dr. Seuss character, likes giving doggie kisses to people who talk sweet to him.

He is an incredibly sweet Toy mix, 1 year young, good with other dogs, now neutered and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 
 
Luciano was found in the streets with no sign of responsible ownership (no microchip ID, no ID tag, not neutered).

Please visit and ask for Luciano by name.

Kodiak




Kodiak, 9, recovering from starvation, builds a bit more hope, energy, and muscle mass each day. 
 
Please keep him on premium, nutritious meals and treats to continue his progress (as he has much more body tissue to add in the weeks and months to come).

Kodiak is a regal Alaskan Malamute and he is housetrained, neutered, good with other dogs (of all sizes, reportedly) and cats (unconfirmed), fine with older kids, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 
 
We rescued him from another shelter.

Nova

Nova, 11, is a thoughtful little gentleman asking for a peaceful and stable home with someone to love.

He was at another shelter that asked for our help for his dental needs (which we provided for him, including 14 teeth extractions).

Nova likes playing fetch and at times acts like he's still a young pup.

Biondo



Biondo is beginning to shine! 
 
Despite severe abuse and neglect, he desperately wants to believe in people. 
 
He was afraid to get his pictures taken this morning, but burst into a bright smile after a few minutes of brushing and words of reassurance.

Biondo is a blond & cream American Eskimo Dog mix, 3 years of age, neutered boy, good with other dogs, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 
 
We rescued him from another shelter that asked for our help and provided Biondo with the hernia repair surgery he needed.

A very calm and stable home will help continue to improve and reach his full loving potential.

Pixie



Pixie loves to hug people she bonds with, sometimes standing on her hind legs and wrapping her arms around your waist. She walks with a graceful prance.

Pixie is 1 of 33 Whippet mixes rescued earlier this year after their previous owner was convicted of animal cruelty.

Pixie is 5 years of age, spayed, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Both are housetrained & crate-trained and good with other dogs. 
 
Spanky is a neutered boy and Tamara is a spayed girl. They are ready for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

They were surrendered in neglected condition earlier this spring. We had dental care provided for Spanky and had a small chest growth removed from Tamara. Both recovered well from their operations.

Ramon



Ramon, tiny and adorable, gentle like a baby deer, yearns for someone to love.

He is a Toy Xolo (Xoloitzcuintli, aka Mexican Hairless), 7 years of age, housetrained, good with dogs and older kids, neutered, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 
 
Ramon was surrendered by his previous owners who cited their busy schedules as the reason. 
 
He loves other gentle dogs and we strongly prefer adopting him to a home where he will have a sister or brother canine to bond with.

Casper


Casper, 12, treasures the peaceful and tender moments in your arms.

He is a Shih-Tzu, great with other sweet dogs, neutered, and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA.

He was at another shelter that asked for our help due to his extreme neglect. We had to have Casper shaved to remove all of the matted knotting. He he has few teeth left and requires very soft meals and treats.

After what was certainly years of disregard, please help us find Casper a hero who will pamper him lovingly.

Kailani



Kailani, radiant and fun-loving young girl, has an irresistible smile.

She is a beautiful Siberian Husky, 1 year of age, spayed, housetrained & crate-trained, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Kailani is good with very mature kids and she is compatible with some dogs near her size, provided they don't try to boss her or jump on her.

She needs kind guidance and basic training.

Kailani needed us due to her previous owner's undisclosed hardship.

Amber



Amber is now healed and very eager to love.

She is exceptionally friendly and we believe she has the temperament to be terrific with children.

Amber, 3, was rescued in January near a busy road with a very deep tissue cut to her left shoulder (cause unknown) and she was bleeding profusely. We rushed her to an animal hospital for emergency care. In the months since she has healed well. Even her scar (visible in picture 3) is now minimal in comparison.

Amber is a large Bully mix, spayed, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

20 rescued motherless kittens need foster heroes today!

Eliza & Hamilton

Taylor
If you can foster, please visit Nevada SPCA in person before 5pm and ask for Lauren.

Many are eating on their own, while others are just beginning to learn to eat on their own.

Taylor, a Maine Coon mix, 10 weeks of age, was found crying alone under a home. Eliza and Hamilton, lilac point shorthairs, 5 weeks of age, were found in a backyard and their mother had vanished.

Thank you very much to those of you who share these very important posts to find foster heroes!

Pippen

Pippin, a 7-pound and 8-month baby boy, has triumphantly recovered from severe injuries. 
 
He was at another shelter that asked for our help due to his broken bones and soft tissue injuries, the result of an unknown massive trauma (such as being hit by a car).

Now healed, Pippin enjoys running and jumping, meeting dogs to play with and people to bond with, and chewing on toys. 
 
He is a super cute Chihuahua, neutered and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.  Please puppy-proof your home and yard for his safety.
 

Madison

The calming power of a whisper led to this big, relaxed smile on Madison this morning.

Scarred by severe cruelty, Madison fears people want to hurt her. She freezes in place and hopes nobody notices her. But she lets us touch her and sit beside her. When we whispered reassurances that she's safe and never to be hurt again, Madison dropped her guard and her eyes sparkled.

Madison is 1 year young and full of tremendous loving potential. She is a beautiful blend of breeds, including Retriever, and now spayed and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 
 
Please help find her a wonderful, peaceful forever home where she can continue blooming.

Jax



If you laugh and tell Jax he's so much fun, he beams with the biggest grin!

He is a wonderfully friendly youngster debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 
 
Jax is a Xolo mix (Xoloitzcuintli, or Mexican hairless dog, and much of his body is hairless), 1 year of age and neutered, and good with other dogs.

We rescued Jax from another shelter that asked for our help because he occasionally favors his hind right leg. We had an x-ray done that revealed a previous fracture that appears to have healed on its own without proper treatment. (So rather than re-breaking the leg to try and fix it, considering he is not in pain, his veterinarian recommends we disclose the old injury and note that will sometimes favor the leg.)
