Dickson Realty Spotlight on Nevada Humane Society with Kimberly Wade from Dickson Realty on Vimeo.

The Nevada Humane Society has saved more than 90,000 lives, caring for animals until they are placed in a loving home. As the largest no-kill and open admission shelter in the state, the organization fulfills their mission to not turn away any animal based on age, breed, health, or behavior. A decade ago, the Nevada Humane Society became a no-kill shelter and has continued to expand their reach. The Carson City branch opened in 2014 and has also saved thousands of animals in northern Nevada.

No matter the age, breed, appearance, or previous medical conditions of an animal, the Nevada Humane Society works to make sure animals receive the care they need. The shelter offers many services and remains successful with the help of community volunteers. For individuals who are unable to adopt, the option to foster animals is a short-term way to help save lives. Each summer, thousands of newborn puppies and kittens enter the shelter and require individualized care before they grow strong enough for adoption.

Beyond the many volunteering opportunities, the Nevada Humane Society throws an annual event for community members to support the cause. On Nov. 11, 2017, the Nevada Humane Society is hosting Wags & Whiskers Gala: A Night in Havana at the Peppermill Resort Spa Casino from 6 to 10 p.m. All funds raised will go directly to benefiting homeless pets in the Reno-Sparks and Carson City areas. Join the Nevada Humane Society in its efforts to save the lives of animals in the community. For more information visit their website at NevadaHumaneSociety.org.
