  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 33629307
  • Hair: Unknown
Orion lived his whole life in one home. Unfortunately for him, his caregiver could no longer take care of him because she had to go into a nursing home and since then his life has been in a virtual tailspin. He welcomes attention but he will never ask for it. Right now, he is grieving for the life he has lost and he tends to hide in areas because it stresses him with this newfound change. He needs a very quiet home with minimal to no noise. This means homes that are very active with dogs or kids will send him under the bed. And he shouldn't have to live under a bed for the rest of his life. He needs some patience and some sweet words to get him over this stressful change in his life.

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!
