Dixie was at another shelter that asked for our help.  She was curled up in a ball, tense, terrified of everyone and everything. 

Dixie does not yet fully understand that she is safe, but she is lifting her head, trusting us and accepting kindness, and making friends with other dogs. 

We are so happy to see her bloom and believe she is ready to join a quiet, loving forever home. 

Dixie is a petite, pretty Chihuahua mix, 2 years of age and spayed, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.

Flower Girl

Flower Girl is offering to be your lifelong assistant and cherished family member. 

She is a delightful young Chihuahua mix, 1 year of age, good with dogs, now spayed and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Flower Girl was pregnant and running loose on the streets at the time of rescue. 

We placed her in a nurturing foster home and she gave birth to 5 babies just two days later and then raised her puppies in a peaceful, comfortable environment.  (Her babies are doing well and remaining in foster care until they are spayed/neutered.) 

Please visit and ask for Flower Girl by name.

Cary invites you to a Nevada SPCA holiday party!

Cary would like to invite you to Nevada SPCA on Saturday, 10am-5pm, for a holiday party dedicated to rescued senior animals, longest residents, and animals with special needs. 

This is our annual Christmas Eve Dedication, but instead of being just one day, the Dedication to rescued animals with challenges continues through year's end.  Free admission, light refreshments, tons of goodwill -- please join us and show your support for animal rescue!

Cary is all about cuddling, belly rubs, and doggie kisses!  He is 3 years of age, a Bully mix, neutered boy, awaiting adoption at Nevada SPCA.

You may remember Cary from last year, when we rescued him with severe wounds from a dog-fighting ring.  Cary was adopted, but needed us again (due to no fault of his own). 

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for these remarkable portraits to help Cary find a stable, loving forever home.

Salem asking for a hero.

Salem, 12 years of age and blind, understood that his portrait day at Pet'ographique was to showcase him, and his personality gleamed. 

He is a thoughtful and kind senior asking for a hero, a Cairn Terrier mix, a neutered boy, good with other dogs, awaiting adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

Please share Salem's portraits and help find him a wonderful home this holiday season.

We rescued Salem from another shelter.

Hedda Hopper

Hedda Hopper is a young girl, full of character, hoping to join a stable, loving family for life. 

She is a beautiful Lop mix bunny, 2 years of age and spayed, ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

Hedda Hopper enjoys being the center of attention and likes to redecorate her condo habitat to her particular liking.

She needed us because she was "unwanted" by her previous owner. 

These portraits are courtesy of the wonderful Pet'ographique.

Thanks to you and other caring people, animals seemingly without any hope left at all, like Godiva, can make triumphant and beautiful recoveries, and learn that humans are capable of nurturing and kindness.

Godiva is a friendly Rex bunny with a warm spirit, 3 years of age, now spayed and ready for adoption at Nevada SPCA. 

At the time of rescue she was found abandoned in an apartment complex, chemically burned across much of her back and body with open wounds. 

(We decided not to show her "before" picture, for many reasons, including the children who visit our pages, but will share it with potential adopters who wish to see it to get a better sense of what she endured.) 

Special thanks to Pet'ographique for capturing Godiva's progress and sweet soul in these portraits.

Vicki must surely be an angel on Earth, wanting to hug everyone and share her joy and kindness. 

She is a vibrant Australian Shepherd & Border Collie mix, 6 years of age and spayed, good with other dogs, debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA. 

Vicki was at another shelter and needed our help.  Her left eye was malformed (by birth defect or injury) beyond repair. 

Vicki has healed well from her eye removal and she is very ready to begin her new life.
