Mission

Nevada Humane Society (NHS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit founded in 1932. Our mission is to care for pets, find them homes and save lives. NHS is the only open-admission, no-kill shelter in Nevada helping 16,000 animals in our community per year. We are thankful for the opportunity to provide for our community by offering programs and services including: pet food assistance, low-cost spay/neuter and vaccination clinics, accepting animal transports from other shelters in our region who are without the resources to care for them, Community Cats (formerly TNR), an Animal Help Desk, Foster Volunteers and more. Our non-profit is dependent upon donations and does not receive funds from government grants, including Washoe County, or national animal welfare organizations.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Nevada Humane Society (NHS) has established this strategic plan to position the organization for future ongoing success, building upon many years of successful promotion of animal welfare in Northern Nevada while also building towards its goal of creating a no-kill community.

As the largest and only open admission, no-kill shelter in the state of Nevada, the Nevada Humane Society focuses on animal rescue and care. With two shelters operating in Washoe County and Carson City, the organization provides care for thousands of displaced animals every year.
