Countdown: 7 Important Reasons Why You Should Participate In Nevada's Big Give
You can make a powerful impact on or before April 25 in Nevada's Big Give, an online day of crowd-funding for outstanding charities.  Here are 7 important reasons to consider participating with a donation of $10 (or more, your choice):

7) Celebrate & Learn About Nevada's Charities.

Show support for your favorite organizations and projects, while also taking moments to learn about new ones.

6) Improve Nevada.

A kinder world begins with bettering our state and communities.  Charities and churches work on the forefront to constantly improve this great state and make it a safer place for everyone.

5) Donating Is Fun and Easy. . . And Feels Good!

You will feel pride and satisfaction in knowing that you are stepping up to help those in need.  Participating in Nevada's Big Give (through Razoo) is simple to do and you can even choose to contribute anonymously, if you wish.
4) Inspire Others.

Upon completing your donation, you can choose to simply share or announce your contribution on social media in order to encourage others to participate and help.

3) You Have The Power.

$10 makes a difference!  Many of the charities making an enormous impact, like Nevada SPCA, do not receive government funding or funding from national organizations.  Caring, generous people like you completely empower their efforts.
 2) Take A Stand.

Donating to Nevada SPCA makes a strong statement in support of a no-kill community and animal rescue, rehabilitation & adoptions.

1) Save A Life!

Animals in danger need you.  Your contribution can save a motherless newborn, rehabilitate an animal with advanced special needs (from abuse, birth defects, disease, injury, neglect, or starvation), and rescue an animal from another shelter.
We would be honored if you would consider supporting Nevada SPCA's lifesaving, no-kill work for animals during Nevada's Big Give before midnight Friday, April 25.

Spanky & Tamrin reunited!

Spanky & Tamrin are now reunited soul-mates, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

We rescued Spanky, a gentle 10-year-old Dachshund, from another shelter.

Three days later the shelter called and said that young Tamrin, a 4-year-old Dachshund, had been crying for him for 3 straight days and stopped eating.

We were shocked to learn that Spanky even had a partner and immediately agreed to rescue Tamrin so they could be reunited.

We later learned that the pair had been confiscated from a home, suggesting they endured a terrible past and forged an especially strong bond by relying on each other for emotional support.

Spanky & Tamrin are together forever and we ask for your help in finding them a wonderful, stable, loving forever home.

Can you help my heart heal?

Richard's feelings of worthlessness won't go away instantly. 

But he is improving every day from very severe neglect. 

Richard is a sensitive, adorable Cockapoo, 1 year young, neutered boy, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

He is good with other dogs and may benefit greatly from a big brother or sister dog to help him adjust. 

Richard was in deplorable condition at another shelter that asked for our help because of his timidity. 

We want to find Richard a stable, peaceful home where he can continue blooming.

I'm so ready for a new life!

Hewey is a vibrant youngster who loves to shower your face with doggie kisses! 

He's progressed very well since his rescue when was in acute pain from a severely broken right front leg that could not be saved (an injury consistent with extreme trauma, such as being hit by a vehicle or falling from a roof). 

Hewey bounces around joyfully on three legs, happy to no longer be suffering. 

He is a chocolate & cream Chihuahua, 1 year of age, neutered, good with dogs, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Do I fit into this world?

Crixus has moments where he looks so sad and lost, but each day he is getting more secure and playful. 

We don't know what this baby boy endured.  He was found abandoned near a busy Vegas intersection with no sign of responsible ownership. 

We believe Crixus is a blend of many breeds, likely including Bully and Mastiff, growing to large size. 

His nose and jaw tilt slightly left, which we thinks gives extra character to his facial expressions. 

Crixus is 3-4 months of age, now neutered and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.  Please puppy-proof your home and yard for his safety.

We are desperate for love.

Hercules and Bentley, baby brothers


Hercules and Bentley are super cute baby boys debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Both are playful and eager for acceptance. 

The boys are most likely Bully & Labrador Retriever mixes, perhaps with another Sporting Dog breed, and they are expected to grow to at least medium size (and most likely large size).  They are 4 months of age and neutered. 

Please puppy-proof your home and yard for their safety.

They can be adopted separately, but please consider adopting them together for lifelong companionship.

Their background is mostly unknown except that police had to confiscate them from their previous home. 

We want them to know a lifetime of love in a stable, responsible forever home.

Surrogate parents are heroes saving fragile lives desperate for kindness.

Tender loving care from nurturing foster parents is the only hope for motherless newborns and others with a fragile hold on life. 

We feel blessed to have so many volunteers and staff willing to care for these babies, even waking up in the middle of the night to ensure they are fed every three hours. 

More people are needed to help as motherless newborns continue to be rescued throughout the spring and summer, so please visit Nevada SPCA and ask for Lonnie if you would like to learn more about becoming a foster parent.

Hercules, pictured here, is 3 weeks of age, being bottle-fed by Joellyn.
