There are so many adorable pets just awaiting your adoption! Here is a sampling of just a few of them. For more choices, please visit their website.
MIKA: (pictured) – “Mousy and very distinguished with black spots near her pink nose, Mika enchants you every time you look her way. She is a loving kitten, a parti-colored shorthair, spayed female, approximately 8 months of age. Mika enjoys other sweet cats. You can meet her today in the free-roaming Cat Condo playrooms at Nevada SPCA. She needed us because her previous owner abandoned her outdoors. She belongs indoors only, as a true member of the family, cherished daily”
MASQUERADE: “Confident and exceptionally affectionate, Masquerade’s foster mom described him as having the personality of a dog who enjoys being with you as much as possible. He is a good-looking Siamese with crisp blue eyes, neutered male, approximately 5 or 6 years of age. We rescued Masquerade after he had been abandoned in an industrial area. Though highly social with people, he is best as the only cat in the home so he can have you all to himself.
Siamese knowledge and/or experience is preferred for his adoption”.
FOXY: “Foxy is a very friendly young girl who was in the dangerous position of having to fend for herself outside. Fortunately, those days are over. We rescued this petite beauty and we are pursuing an indoor-only lifestyle for her in a forever home (as we do with all rescued felines). Foxy is a brown tabby with lovely golden accents. She is now spayed and about 2 years of age. She has a medium-hair coat, so please plan on at least weekly brushing and good hygiene.”
RENOIR: “Renoir’s survival story illustrates yet another reason why cats are in danger outdoors.
Renoir fell off a roof. The person who witnessed this found him unconscious in the bushes below. He came to us in a coma, with a severe hernia, and his consciousness emerged hours later upon receiving emergency care. He shows no sign of brain damage, so he is incredibly fortunate. He is a very curious and adventurous neutered male, approximately two years young. So it’s indoor-only living for Renoir from now on. He is ready for adoption today and ready to share a lifetime of amusement with a committed and caring new owner/guardian.”
And there are always too many more!
My next few articles will feature several more new friends to be made at this shelter and others, as well as other upcoming special events to benefit pets just waiting for YOU.
