Facts about Leo

  • Breed: Manx
  • Color: Orange Or Red
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 23090023
  • Hair: Unknown
Leo is a sweet boy who's had a tough life. He first came to the SPCA in 2014 with no claws and a shy, reserved attitude. His cute face and easy-going temperament has attracted lots of people to him over the years, but Leo has a problem with new environments. When he's frightened and unsure of where he is he can get very upset and act out. Once he's had time to calm down, though, he always returns to the gentle, playful boy that you see here today. Unfortunately most of the people who have adopted Leo did not have the patience to work with him through the rough patch, and almost all of Leo's adoptions have lasted less than a week. He needs someone who is truly committed and won't give up on him at the first sign of trouble, someone who sees the well behaved cat he really is and is willing to work through a few days of tantrums to get to him. Because he has such a hard time adjusting we ask that his new home have no dogs or young children, and we recommend no other cats if possible. If Leo has caught your eye than please see the front staff for more information about him. A guy like him deserves better!

About SPCA of Northern Nevada

About Our Shelter...

The mission of the SPCANN is to be an innovative regional leader in responsible treatment of homeless cats and dogs, primarily through their rescue and placement in forever loving homes, and by promoting spaying and neutering to control pet overpopulation. We accomplish our mission with dedication to our core values and a lifetime commitment to our animals.

We are Reno's first no-kill animal shelter, founded in 1998. Each year our shelter develops more progressive programs such as our Rural Rescue Program where we aggressively rescue animals from rural animal control agencies and support their joint efforts to move animals out of their facilities and into ours to avoid euthanasia. We also have expanded our reach into schools with our Humane Initiative Program where we teach and show compassion to animals. We have more programs and many projects on the horizon - visit our website to see more!!!

Come Meet Our Pets...

We have events througout the year to highlight our adoptable animals. One favorite event each year is our local public swimming pool closes to the public in the fall and the very last day the pool is open only to dogs in the community. Shelter dogs play, splash and mingle with public dogs in two pools and cool off for the final hot days of the summer.

We post our events on our website and Facebook and through other various media outlets.

Our Adoption Process...

The SPCA of Northern Nevada has an adoption process that involves a fee, adoption application, Meet and Greets with prospective humans and other companion dogs in the same household and children. We do have specific requirements for an adoption. We strive to really ensure a great match!
