Our Adoption Process:

For Dogs or Cats:
To adopt one of our dogs or cats, you must be present at the shelter, fill out a short application and information form, and pay the appropriate adoption fees stated below:

For Dogs:
$10 Adoption fee.
$20 Spay/Neuter deposit.

For Cats:
$5 Adoption fee.
$20 Spay/Neuter deposit.

To redeem the spay/neuter deposit you must provide the animal shelters proper receipt and a form from the vet that states the animal has been spayed/neutered.
You take this paperwork to the Nevada Police Department, and when the city cuts a check like twice a month, they will send you that $20 back in the mail.

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.
