Yoda was found abandoned last month near a Vegas freeway with severe facial swelling from dog bites. 

Now, five weeks later, he is unrecognizable because of major improvements, thriving on premium food, and neutered and micro-chipped. 

Once Yoda trusts you, he blooms and joyfully wants to be in your presence. 

He is a small Bully mix, 2 years young, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Yoda needs an experienced home where he will be the only animal, seeing just the best of human nature, and letting violent memories and fears fade away.

My belief in the goodness of people survived too.

Dodge dearly loves people and he is eager to become a treasured member of a forever home. 

You may remember him from earlier this year, rescued after being viciously and repeatedly stabbed in the neck and left to die on a street. 

Dodge's wounds healed well and we adopted him to a nice family.  But the children in the home made him anxious and he was returned. 

Dodge is a super sweet Bully mix, 2 years young and neutered, and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for capturing his robust spirit in these new portraits.

Luna and her sons are ready for loving, indoor-only forever homes.

David, baby boy

Devon, baby boy

Luna, mother
Baby brothers David and Devon, and their mother, Luna, are now spayed/neutered and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

Luna, a graceful 3-year-old, was pregnant at the time of rescue.  She gave birth to three kittens and raised them in a loving foster home.  One of her babies was adopted by the foster parents. 

David and Devon are 3 months of age.  Please kitten-proof your home for their safety.

David likes to play under blankets and play "ambush" when you walk by. 

Devon enjoys jumping at hand-held cat toys and watching "Animal Planet" with you. 

Luna gets along beautifully with other cats of all ages and she delights in exploring new rooms and toys.

Cherish me and all of my love is yours.

Daisy is at peace in your arms. 

She is a mellow girl, so grateful to be off of the streets, and she offers many years of tenderness and devotion. 

Daisy is 5 years of age and spayed and good with other cats. 

She was found abandoned outdoors, declawed (front paws) and unable to protect herself, with no sign of responsible ownership. 

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for these beautiful portraits to help Daisy find a responsible, indoor-only forever home.

Donatello finally has a twinkle in his eyes and hope for his future. 

He is a remarkably attractive boy, most likely a Havanese and Wheaten Terrier mix, about 5 years of age, neutered, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Donatello was terrified and shaking at another shelter that asked for our help.  He was in poor, neglected condition, and showed signs of being abused. 

We have been working with Donatello for a few months and he has made great progress. 

A gentle, experienced, adult-only home is ideal for his continuing emotional healing and improvement.

I want you to love me.

Stanley is a most lovable baby boy and he is debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

He is a Bully mix, likely with Mastiff too (and growing to large size), 4 months of age and neutered.

Stanley was found on the streets with a broken hind leg when just a few weeks old.

We placed him in a wonderful foster home for recovery and he has been socialized with cats, dogs, and kids.

Stanley's leg has healed fine and he is regaining muscle strength every day.

Please visit and ask for Stanley by name.

Will you please share some of your kindness with me?

Calvin & Hobbes

Lady Isabella

Foster heroes are urgently needed today! 

This most challenging year ever for motherless young kittens continues with another 8 babies in desperate need of surrogate mothering rescued in the past 24 hours.  Foster homes are also needed for numerous special needs and senior cats.  Please visit Nevada SPCA in person before 4pm if you can help and ask for Katelyn.

Pictured here:

A) Calvin & Hobbes, baby brothers just 5 weeks of age, found motherless in a yard and in distress. 

B) Lady Isabelle, a blind & declawed adult rescued this morning from a discarded plastic box (without food or water). 

C) Adele, a gentle 16-year-old tabby whose previous owner took her to a veterinary hospital for euthanasia because she missed the litter box (and the hospital refused to kill her).

Thank you in advance for helping spread the word for these newborns, seniors, and special needs felines who need heroes!
