Mission

Nevada Humane Society is a no-kill, open-admission shelter whose life-saving work is made possible through donations. More than 70,000 animals in Washoe County and Carson City have been placed into loving homes since 2007 when we launched a bold effort to turn the area into no-kill community. Our mission is to care for and find homes for homeless animals, which we accomplish through quality animal care, innovative adoption programs, accessible low-cost spay/neuter services, low-income medical assistance and a free Animal Help Desk. Nevada Humane Society offers a suite of innovative, substantiated programs that forge a robust safety net to arrest the plague of pet abuse, neglect and abandonment and keep animals in their loving homes and out of the sheltering system.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Homeless animal rescue and care; pet adoptions; low-cost spay/neuter services; low-income medical assistance; Animal Help Desk

Homeless animal rescue and care: We take in all animals surrendered from Washoe County residents and those who are not reclaimed at Animal Services, providing them needed care until they can be placed into a new home.
 
Pet adoptions: We adopt out all animals in our care unless they are too badly injured or ill to recover to a reasonable quality of life or are aggressive and pose a risk to public safety. Older pets, underage kittens and puppies, animals with special needs and those who are sick and injured who can be successfully treated are all saved and adopted out.

Low-cost spay/neuter services: We provide a variety of low-cost or free spay/neuter services to assist people who cannot afford to get their pets fixed, both through voucher programs in conjunction with local veterinarians and through our own clinic. Our clinic has a sliding-scale fee schedule to ensure that people receive the assistance they need for their pets.
 
Animal Help Desk: This free public resource responds to over 20,000 requests per year. Trained staff addresses situations such as pet behavior problems, lifestyle challenges (moving, new baby, allergies, etc.), animal heath questions, financial problems, feral cats, and injured wildlife. Each request receives personal attention from trained staff members or volunteers.

Charting impact

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

Our goal is to provide an adoption guarantee – a good life in a good home – for every homeless dog and cat in our community who can be saved, making Washoe County a no-kill community.

We're already well on our way, saving more animals than ever before. With the help and support, we will achieve our no-kill goal – not just for the animals on our shelter, but for every homeless animal in the community.
