Gisselle, a young Terry-Poo (Terrier & Miniature Poodle mix), was found abandoned and injured near a Vegas freeway. 

Her hind leg was severely wounded and infected, but not from being hit by a car, but from neglect so extreme that the knots in her coat had grown inside her leg. 

Now, after two months of treatment and successful recovery, Gisselle is now spayed and ready to find out what a loving home feels like. 

She is understandably pensive and reserved, unsure if she can really rely on people, but yet she wants to trust and believe in kindness. 

Gisselle is 3 years of age and picky about other dogs. 

Please help find her someone who will patiently help her reach her full loving potential and never fail her.

Iridessa, Rani, and Rosetta



Iridessa, Rani, and Rosetta are maternal baby girls who like to groom and comfort cats and dogs. 

The sisters are now 3 months of age, spayed, and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA.  Please be sure to carefully kitten-proof your home.

The girls and their mother, Norma, needed us when their previous owner died.  Since then they have been lovingly raised and socialized in a foster home. 

Like their mom, two (Iridessa and Rosetta) have extra toes (polydactyl). 

[Norma was spayed and adopted earlier this month.]


Holly is an adorable English Bulldog debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

She is 7 years of age, spayed, housetrained & crate-trained, good with older kids, and compatible with some dogs (though picky about which dogs she likes). 

Holly doesn't instantly warm to people, but steadily builds strong bonds with time and familiarity. 

At the time of rescue she was surrendered by her previous owner and in peril from pyometra (uterine infection).  Thanks to generous donors to our advanced care fund, we had emergency surgery provided to save her life (removing her uterus and ovaries), and she healed very well.

Blake is a robust junior puppy with a colorful personality and he is ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

Blake is a Pekingese mix, 10 months of age, now neutered, and compatible with kids and dogs. 

He was surrendered by his previous owner who blamed Blake's neglected condition on the family's children. 

(Note: We believe that animal care-taking is an adult responsibility.  With oversight and guidance, kids can assist. It can be incredibly devastating for the kids, and perilous for the animals, when people remove animals from their families as a means to punish children.)

Bambi and Dear Mom


Dear Mom
Bambi and her mother, Dear Mom, debut for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

The girls are part of a large group rescued from another shelter that ceased operations.  Bambi is 5 months of age and Dear Mom is 1 year of age, and both are now spayed.

As much as we would love them to be adopted together, this is not required because their emotional needs at this time are so different.

Bambi is demure and wonderfully affectionate and craves cuddling.

Dear Mom tries to avoid human contact, but she is also gentle and did agree to sit on a lap today for her picture.  Dear Mom is a medium-size Australian Cattle Dog & Dutch Shepherd mix and she needs your patience to gradually improve socialization based on trust and respect.

Luther yearns for peace-of-mind and he has tremendous loving potential. 

He is a 95-pound Rottweiler, 4 years of age and neutered, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Luther was at another shelter that asked for our help due to his cruel past. 

He wants to believe in people and will sit close to you for companionship, but watches carefully to ensure no one attempts to hurt him again. 

Please help find Luther a very experienced, stable, adult-only home where he can continue to improve and see only the best of human nature.

Mozart asks for a hero.

Mozart, realizing that people can be kind and nurturing, is overcoming a violent past and daring to hope for a peaceful future. 

He is an exceptionally attractive Dachshund, 5 years of age, a neutered boy, housetrained, good with other dogs, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Mozart is especially fearful of strangers and children.  We don't know what he has endured.  Mozart was at another shelter that asked for our help. 

A very experienced, adult-only home can help him continue reaching his full loving potential.
