We save and improve the lives of pets and people.

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!

Spay & Neuter (SNYPS)

Our affordable spay/neuter clinic for dogs and cats is available to northern Nevada residents with a total household income of $60,000 or less.

There are many reasons why you should spay/neuter your pet:

  • To help mitigate the high national rate of companion animal euthanasia
  • To prevent unwanted pregnancies and litters
  • To help your pet live a longer, healthier life
