Pets at Our Shelter:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Washoe County and Carson City are the priority for lifesaving efforts, but as resources allow NHS occasionally assists other northern Nevada areas. Adopters are welcome from anywhere.

About Our Shelter:

Nevada Humane Society is a non-profit organization whose lifesaving work is made possible through donations. In 2007, NHS became a no-kill shelter and launched a bold effort to help Washoe County become a no-kill community. In 2014, NHS expanded lifesaving efforts to include Carson City. Today, more than 70,000 animals have been placed into loving homes since 2007 and NHS continues to grow, maintaining its status as one of the top communities in the country for saving homeless pets.

NHS is open seven days a week, from 11am to 6:30pm Sunday through Friday, and an hour earlier on Saturday, from 10am to 6:30pm. There are also many other offsite adoption locations throughout northern Nevada, as well as cats at various PetSmart and Petco locations. Please call for details.

Our Adoption Process:

Each adoption consists of an interview along with and application and contract, and each is handled on a case-by-case basis. Standard adoption fees are $50, however there are often special adoption promotions that reduce fees. In addition, there are special programs for seniors, pets with medical needs and more. All animals are spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.

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.
