Winzig


Winzig, a tiny little "firecracker" with enormous loving potential, longs for a peaceful home with a stable lifestyle routine.

Winzig likes being around other dogs. But he is not at all sure he wants anything more to do with humans. We don't know what Winzig has endured, but all indications suggest a dreadful and traumatic previous home environment. He is intolerant of anyone reaching for him until he has decided he trusts them. 
 
Winzig needs a hero with extraordinary patience and understanding.

He is a Chihuahua, 3 years young, crate-trained, and now neutered and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA.

Inspiring update on Richard!

Inspiring update we want to share with you!

Richard's new dad, Jeremy, sent this picture and reports:

"Richard is settling in great and receiving more love than I think he knows what to do with. He's already found his favorite place to hang out in the backyard (under my tree) and in the house (my bed)."

Jeremy also says Richard is enjoying long walks and showing love and affection. Richard is still flinching when he hears loud noises, but Jeremy says they will work through this with positive encouragement and comfort.

Richard is one of the Majestic Brothers. More details on his rescue here.

Eloise

Eloise is an endearing young girl who likes curling up in baskets for her naps. Exploring is one of her favorite activities, so bringing new items and boxes home gives her hours of pleasure.

Eloise is a gorgeous Snowshoe & Siamese, 2 years of age, good with other cats, now spayed and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA.

At the time of rescue she and her babies were homeless. We placed them in a loving foster home where she raised them in peace and comfort. (Her babies are still in foster care, until old enough to be spayed/neutered too.)

Perry

Perry is a playful baby boy with pleading eyes. Your approval is very important to him. 
 
Perry is a blend of small breeds (including Chihuahua & Italian Greyhound & more), 6 months of age, good with other dogs, now neutered and debuting for adoption at Nevada SPCA.

Perry was found abandoned on a freeway exit ramp.

Special Halloween adoption hours today: 10am-2pm.

Theresa

Theresa, matted and neglected, was spotted by a person sitting on the side of a road and not moving. Many hours later, she was still there, sitting and not moving.

The heartbreaking likelihood, according to the veterinarians we consulted, is that she was waiting for the person who abandoned her on the street to come back for her. She didn't know what else to do.

The person safely caught her and brought her to Nevada SPCA for safety and care. We had her groomed, vaccinated, spayed, chipped, and placed her on a premium probiotic food plan.

Theresa is a Toy & Terrier mix, 1 year young, good with other sweet dogs, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Wyatt needs a foster home please.

Wyatt, just 8 weeks of age, needs a foster home please for approximately 4-6 weeks.

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

Wyatt was just surrendered because of his previous owner's family troubles.

He is a Maltese & Shih-Tzu mix, shy and gentle.

A calm, nurturing home environment is ideal for his socialization and continuing development.

Lori

Lori, 9, loves cuddling and snuggling. 
 
Tell her she's your "lap dog" and she will lean her head against your chest.

Lori is a gentle soul, a Bully mix, good with other dogs, spayed, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 
 
She was found abandoned in a shopping center and her past is otherwise unknown.

Cream Puff



Cream Puff survived evil and triumphed physically and emotionally and spiritually. Despite what she endured, she still believes in human kindness.

A woman found her lying wounded on a sidewalk with massive injuries on her neck and legs. She scooped her up and brought her to us for emergency care. (Cream Puff had some old bite wounds, but most of her new and old wounds were not consistent with an animal attack nor a strike by a vehicle, and included injuries consistent with being cut.)

While Cream Puff healed, she kissed her caretakers and trusted them to tend to her wounds. Now, all these weeks later, after countless stitches & staples, she has mended to the point where she can now join a peaceful, stable, loving forever home.

Cream Puff is a beautiful soul, a Boxer, 6 years of age, now spayed and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Betty Boop

Betty Boop, 15, had perilous neck wounds at the time of rescue from being attacked by a large dog. We rushed her to an animal hospital for emergency surgery. A second surgery was required too in order to save her life. (Thank you to the donors who made her advanced veterinary care possible!)

Throughout, Betty Boop knew everyone was trying hard to save her. Even though she was in pain from the wounds, she patiently allowed all handling and politely trusted her caretakers.

This graceful sweetheart is now healed and ready to love someone dearly. She is a wonderfully kind Chihuahua, great with other dogs, spayed girl, triumphantly debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Puffie

Puffie has been the victim of heartbreaking malnutrition and neglect. Though only 8 years of age, he looks and moves like he is 18 years of age. 
 
We rescued Puffie from another shelter 5 weeks ago. He has improved since then with veterinary care, premium meals and nutritious treats, and socialization with staff and volunteers.

Puffie is an exceptionally gentle American Eskimo and he is grateful for all kindness. He is neutered, good with other dogs, and ready for a hero adoption at Nevada SPCA.

It is imperative that you keep Puffie on premium and nutritious food so his skin, coat, and body continues to heal, as well as resulting in more energy and muscle.

Niles


Niles, now healed, awaits a peaceful, violence-free home where he can devote himself to loving.

Niles loves children and playing in splash pools. He is a Bull Terrier, 4 years of age and neutered, housetrained & crate-trained, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

At the time of rescue Niles was severely injured from another dog. His open wounds, including the enormous shoulder gash on his right side, were at risk of infection from debris. Someone had crudely attempted to "super glue" his skin back together. Surgery was required and Niles has been healing well ever since. 
 
Because of what Niles has witnessed and endured, he requires a home without any other animals.

Thanks to advanced medical care, dental care, and a loving foster home, she has been mending beautifully ever since.

Emma's primary challenge now is her diet. Her foster mom homecooked for her because she refuses to eat dog food of any kind or flavor. She has few teeth left and her food must be nutritious, and easy to chew and swallow.

Please share Emma's picture and help find her a hero.

He is an exceptionally affectionate German Shepherd puppy, 5 months of age, good with other dogs, and awaiting a foster hero at Nevada SPCA.

Chief can stand on his back legs for short amounts of time, if you help him up, but at this time he is unable to maneuver to a standing position on his back legs without assistance.

Chief's veterinary specialist believes there is hope with a variety of possible solutions. Choosing which one will depend on how he manages in a foster home and if his walking improves or if needs a lifestyle affixed to wheels.

Please share Chief's pictures to help find someone wonderful for him. Thank you.
