We save and improve the lives of people and pets.

How Adoption Works


SPCA of Northern Nevada believes in an open, conversation-based adoption process that carefully matches the lifestyle and expectations of adopters with the personalities and needs of our homeless pets. This approach gives adopted pets and their adopters the greatest chance for a successful, loving life together!
