Adoption FAQs

There are a variety of reasons for pets to be accepted into our shelter. In some cases their family can no longer care for them due to lifestyle changes, or their previous owner has passed away. In other cases, animals are transferred to us from another shelter that needed our help.

As part of the adoption process, you will have an opportunity to sit down with an adoption counselor and discover more about that animal’s history as well as information about their health and personality as we have come to know it at the shelter.

Nevada SPCA is currently open by appointment Monday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m. (Closed on Sundays). You can schedule an appointment by selecting the appointment button located at the top of the adoptable animals pages.

You will be able to meet with the pet that you are interested in and speak with our staff to learn more about them. An adoption counselor can share information with you about that pet as we have come to know them in the shelter. They will also learn about your household, lifestyle, and expectations in order to ensure the best fit and successful match for you and your family. Please allow adequate time to have relevant conversations with our adoption counselor who can also answer any questions you may have about bringing your new pet home.

When you adopt from Nevada SPCA, you are adopting a pet that has been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and has received any necessary medical care. Services which can cost a new pet owner well over $400 per pet. When you choose to adopt, you are helping us to save lives. Our shelter is funded entirely by your generosity and support.

An older dog has usually already gone through the chewing, house soiling, and overactive baby stages. Adult cats don’t need you to “kitten-proof” the house and an older pet can usually adjust to your routine more quickly. Take it from us, they are especially grateful for their new life and to be part of a loving family. Keep an open mind when meeting a shelter pet

For a cat: a litter box, cat litter, litter scooper, cat toys, a sturdy scratching post with sisal, wood or cardboard for your cat to scratch and exercise, a cat bed and a pet brush, cat food. 

For a dog: a collar or harness and leash, poop-bags for clean-up on walks, toys, a dog bed, a pet brush, and an ID tag, dog food.

For a rabbit or small animal: We can share more information when you visit the shelter about what you will need for the animal you select. Rabbits can be litter box trained and make great house pets. All animals enjoy toys, and you will need to purchase the appropriate housing, bedding and food.

We may have some supplies to share with you when you adopt, but availability varies.

Yes. However, if you discover a health issue related to the time the animal spent in the shelter within 2 weeks of adoption, please reach out to us to see if we can help. We try our best to look after health care needs while animals are in our care. We will provide vet care records and disclose any health issues that we are aware of, but we cannot guarantee the health or temperament of any animal.
