On October 14, Miracle was skeletal from starvation, perilously weighing only 25.6 pounds.  Today, this triumphant young boy weighs 46.8 pounds and he debuts for adoption at Nevada SPCA.

Miracle shines and glows, and he's come to deeply adore the staff and volunteers helping him recover. 

He is 1 year of age and neutered, a medium-size Heinz 57 with Bully, sporting white mitts and golden eyes. 

We believe Miracle may be compatible with some dogs too. 

Please help find him a responsible and stable home where he will never know desperate hunger again.


Jackie is blessed with the most gentle spirit.  She is an angel on this Earth and she needs a loving home. 

Jackie is a Doberman Pinscher, 3 years of age and spayed, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. She is terrific with other dogs too. 

Jackie was at another shelter and needed our help.  As you can see, she has birth defects that affected the location of her teeth, eyes, and ears, but we see her as uniquely perfect & perfectly unique, the sweetest bundle of love.

Binky is a charming and comical older boy with a youthful spirit and he awaits adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

He is a large Bully mix, 10 years of age and neutered, housetrained and crate-trained, and compatible with some dogs. 

Binky loves playing fetch and he wants to be around people as much as possible. 

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for these new portraits that capture many facets of his personality.

Oh Honey

Honey, at 3 pounds, is the size of a guinea pig, but she has a big personality and she melts the hearts of everyone she meets.  This pixie-like baby girl triumphantly debuts for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

At the time of rescue Honey was just 3 days old and in peril from fluid in her lungs.  We had critical care provided for her (thanks to Nevada SPCA's advanced veterinary care fund) and her heroic foster mom bottle-fed her every few hours to keep her alive. 

Honey has been raised with cats and dogs of all ages and she is pee-pad trained.  She adores her elephant toy (which we will send home with her). 

Honey is a Chihuahua mix, now 7 months of age and spayed. 

Please ask for her by name when you visit.

Before & After: Weston, a rescued Shih-Tzu debuting for adoption today.

Weston, on the day of his rescue

Weston, on the morning of November 22
Earlier this month Weston was at another shelter and needed our help.  The victim of long-term neglect, he could barely see through his unkempt coat and was grumpy about anyone touching him.

But when we shaved it all away we discovered the sweetest little soul and most magical blue eyes.

Weston is a Shih-Tzu, about 5 years of age and neutered, and good with other dogs.

Please help us find Weston a gentle, stable home where he will be treasured.

Heather has been going with volunteers to fun "boot camp" training classes.  Of particular interest from her reports is that she seems motivated most by cuddling rewards, not treats or toys, and that she loves racing through play-tunnels with glee! 

We adopted Heather to a family earlier this year, but she was returned for not getting along well with their other dog.  She likes some dogs though and certainly adores people wholeheartedly. 

Heather is a pretty Bully mix, 1 year of age and spayed and crate-trained, awaiting adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for these new portraits capturing her sweet spirit.

Is the world ready for me?

Josie is an outgoing junior puppy with a beautiful prance in her step. 

We love seeing her head held high, her recovery complete, and she debuts for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Josie is a steel-grey & white Bully mix, 7 months of age, crate-trained and compatible with mature kids.  An active lifestyle routine is ideal for this playful girl. 

At the time of rescue she was perilously ill with parvo, but thanks to donors to Nevada SPCA's advanced veterinary care fund we were able to provide her with extensive treatment that saved her life. 

Please visit and ask for Josie by name.
