Saving Baby Animals & Fragile Lives

Sister

Fallon

Sister (nicknamed "Sissy") earned her name because she likes grooming other rescued "kits" (baby bunnies). She was rescued Sunday by children who noticed that she was being chased by a dog. Sister is just a few weeks of age and thriving in a loving foster home.

We are in overdrive preparing for an estimated 5,000 motherless newborns and homeless pregnant animals this spring and summer, based on escalating trends from the past six years. So we are enormously grateful to the donors (Tina Walls, Leslie Hollmann, and anonymous donors) who are matching/doubling all online donations to Nevada SPCA through March 23!
Please help spread the word that every contribution matters. Gifts of $5 can buy kitten or puppy formula plus nursing kits.

Fallon, a newborn kitten just days old, is building strength every day. Found near Boulder Highway without the safety and care of a home, she was in imminent peril.

Thank you to all of you who share the rescued animals' posts and use Facebook for kindness!

Please click here if you can donate $5 to Nevada SPCA for lifesaving care.

Buford

Buford is a polite and handsome gentleman eager to love someone dearly. 

His favorite things include curling up in cat beds, chasing his toys, and bonding with people. 

Buford needs plenty of time to warm to other cats and develop trust. 

He is a shorthair tabby, 7 years of age, neutered, and awaiting adoption at Nevada SPCA.

Julio


Julio was bashful for his pictures this morning, but he is quite content in calm arms and cuddling up against people he knows and trusts. 

Gentle chin scratches are one of his favorite things and you can usually find him following you around the room. 

Julio is a blue-eyed white feline, 9 years of age and neutered, good with other cats, and awaiting adoption at Nevada SPCA.

He needed us due to his previous owners' financial hardship.

Baby Hamlet



Praise baby Hamlet and he pleads with his eyes to hear much more. 
 
He loves people and dogs, cuddling and playing, and wants everyone around him to be happy too.

Hamlet is a Snoopy-like Heinz 57 with Bully, expected to grow to at least medium size, 4 months of age, now neutered and debuting for adoption at Nevada SPCA
 
He was found abandoned on the streets with no sign of responsible ownership (no ID tag, no microchip ID, not neutered).

Olive

Olive, 9, is brokenhearted and confused about becoming homeless (due to the financial hardship of her previous owners). She yearns for peace-of-mind and a sense of belonging.

Olive is a Bichon Frise & Miniature Poodle mix, housetrained & crate-trained, good with dogs, now spayed and debuting for adoption at Nevada SPCA
 
An experienced, adult-only home is needed for her continuing improvement. When fearful, she can be nippy and grouchy, so please provide a calm home environment and your patient reassurance every day.

Maxine



Maxine is a luminous, vibrant young girl with an easy smile and tremendous enthusiasm for adventure. 
 
She is a German Shepherd & Siberian Husky mix with sky-blue eyes, 1 year of age, good with large dogs, now spayed and debuting for adoption at Nevada SPCA.

Maxine was found and captured in the parking lot of a large department store. She had no sign whatsoever of responsible ownership (no ID tag, no microchip ID, not spayed). 
 
Maxine deserves a stable, responsible, experienced home where she will always be safe and where her play-biting will be corrected.

Finley & Connor


Finley & Connor, son and father, were reportedly abandoned at a gas station and trying to eke out an existence there. Connor would beg strangers for morsels of food, then take it to his bashful son, Finley, instead of eating it himself.

A volunteer captured the hungry pair and brought them to the safety of Nevada SPCA.

Now neutered, Finley & Connor are debuting for adoption today. They are Chihuahua & Beagle mixes, 2 and 4 years of age, and good with other dogs. A very experienced home is needed for their continued emotional healing and socialization. 
 
They are bonded for life, together forever. Please share their pictures to help find them a hero.

Please share Dustin's post to help find him a hero.

Update on Sephora!


Wonderful update on Sephora!

We want to share this with you, courtesy of her new mom, Gracie:

"Just want to let you know how much we love her. Oh and the boys changed her name to Jyn Erso (they are star wars fans). Thank you for making this family happy."

Antonio


Antonio's previous owner died (his human mom) and he suddenly became intolerant of men. We do not know the circumstances of what occurred, but we have observed his fear of men. 

Antonio is a Beagle with enormous loving potential in a stable, gentle home. He is 8 years of age, neutered, housetrained, good with other dogs, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA

Gene and Paul, adorable baby brothers, are ready for adoption in the Lovebugs Room today at Nevada SPCA

The boys are American guinea pigs, just 2 months of age, and learning to trust and bond with people. 

They were rescued from a suspected breeder and need more socialization in an experienced home.

Walt



"Grumpy Walt" is proof you cannot judge a sentient being by his or her appearance. This happy and cheerful young boy always wears a frown -- or a sly smile -- due to his underbite and the shape of his mouth.

Walt was found abandoned at a busy DMV location with no sign of responsible ownership. 
 
He is a red-gold tuxedo Chihuahua mix with bronze eyes, 2 years of age, good with other dogs, now neutered and debuting for adoption at Nevada SPCA.

Kansas

Kansas, 11, worries that nobody will want his love. We reassure him that he's a wonderful treasure and he relaxes and joins us for walks and petting.

He needs to continue building self-esteem and confidence.

Kansas is 1 of 33 animals Nevada SPCA has rescued so far from a collapsed animal organization in northern Arizona. His background is otherwise unknown.

Tia is 2 years of age and spayed. Her ears were crudely maimed and cut off unevenly.

She is healing emotionally too. At the time of rescue she hid from people in the back of her kennel. Now, she greets her caretakers with wagging tail and barks at them if they forget to tell her how sweet she is when they walk by.

He is a good-looking orange tabby kitten, 5 months of age and neutered, good with other cats, and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA

Rex was surrendered because a previous family member was believed to be allergic to him.

She is a Miniature Schnauzer with enormous love and gratitude to share.  Pearl is great with other dogs, housetrained & crate-trained, fine with older kids, spayed, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA

She needed us when her previous owners moved away without her. 

Pearl was in very poor condition at the time of rescue. Since then we put her on a premium probiotic food plan, groomed her, and had her back wound repaired (and growth removed). 

Please give this sweetheart senior your consideration.

Sandy

Sandy, a beautiful young adult who still acts like a kitten, enjoys playing hockey with whatever toys and small objects she finds lying on the floor. 

Shoelaces also captivate her, so be ready for some pouncing on your feet.

At the time of rescue she was found abandoned outdoors with no sign of responsible ownership.

But Samurai remembers abuse and still sometimes winces when hands get near his head.

He was at another shelter that asked for our help due to his past cruelty. 
 
Please share his picture to help find him a hero for life.

Cliff

Cliff, 12, is a brokenhearted Jack Russell Terrier asking for a hero. He was surrendered due to having an accident indoors. But needing more frequent opportunities to go outdoors is normal and natural for a senior.

Cliff is a friendly Jack Russell Terrier who deserves someone who will never fail him again. 
 
He is neutered, crate-trained, and ready for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.
 
Cliff needs a household where he is the only animal.

Zinnia finds catnip so irresistible she goes into a purring trance when she detects it on her toys and scratching posts. 

She is great with other cats and likes to climb cat towers.

He is a Yellow Labrador Retriever, 8 months of age, housetrained, good with other dogs, now neutered and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Chinook was surrendered by his previous owners who said they were unprepared for his high energy level and social needs. 
 
He is still play-biting, so an experienced home is needed to kindly correct this behavior.

Her favorite things include close cuddling and playing ball. Diamond is a cream & white Bully mix with adorable freckles, 5 months of age, now spayed and debuting for adoption at Nevada SPCA.
