My name is Cocoa and I am an active lab-pit mix seeking my forever home. I would likely be a good candidate for sturdy kids and I get along best with a calm and submissive female dog. I am curious about cats, so it is unknown whether I'd get along with them in a home environment. I am a happy-go-lucky type who just wants to be loved, and at the end of an active day, I make a great cuddling partner. I am a strong puller and need training, but I am a great dog, so if I seem interesting, please come and meet me today!

Exercise: Active, playful, energetic
Large dogs: I get along with most other dogs, but I play in a very dominant way.
Small dogs: I may be too rowdy to live peacefully with a small dog.
Children: Meet and greet required, I am very strong.
Cats/other small animals: Unknown

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!
