Washoe County mostly, but also some services to other counties in Northern Nevada
Nevada Humane Society is a nonprofit, charitable organization founded in 1932. We are a no-kill shelter whose mission is to find homes and provide care for homeless animals and to bring people and animals together to make Washoe County a no-kill community.
Come Meet our Pets:
We are open seven days a week from 11am to 6:30pm, opening at 10am on Saturdays. We are located at 2825 Longley Ln, Reno, Nevada.
Our Adoption Process:
We have an interview process for adoptions and each is handled on a case-by-case basis. Our regular adoption fees for cats and dogs is $50 but we often have special promotional fees.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat
adoption saves lives. Adopt
a dog or adopt a cat and you'll
have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting
a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats
for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?
When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs
and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of
dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed
is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten
breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.
So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat
or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt
a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane
society or pet rescue group.
