Nevada Humane Society: Carson City Animal shelter in Carson City, NV

Nevada Humane Society is a non-profit organization whose lifesaving work is made possible through donations.

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.

Shelter FAQs

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.

Additional adoption info

Each adoption consists of an interview, application, counseling session, and adoption contract. All adoptions are handled on a case-by-case basis, but most adoptions are first-come, first-served, and holds cannot be placed in advance for someone to meet with an animal. All animals are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped.

Please see http://www.nevadahumanesociety.org/ for more information including all currently available animals, adoption prices, resources, and events.
