Nevada Humane Society: Bringing Animals and People Together Since 1932
A Last Resort

If you need to find a new home for your pet the very best thing you can do is to seek a new home with friends, family members, or co-workers through the newspaper or with the assistance of a rescue group.

If you need further assistance, please call us at 775-856-2000, ext 200. Be sure to leave your full phone number including the area code. One of our trained staff members will call you back to offer assistance.

As a last resort, Nevada Humane Society accepts pets from residents of Washoe County who can no longer keep them.

You will be asked to fill out a surrender form and sign a legal release of ownership. The surrender fees are as follows:
Spayed/neutered adult dog/cat: $25
Intact adult dog or cat: $50
Kitten/puppy (each animal): $20
Rabbit or other small animal: $20

Please call and make an appointment before bringing your pet to us. We may be able to assist you with other placement options, offer solutions to behavior problems, or help to get your pet spayed or neutered so that you will be able to keep him or her.

You may also want to visit our Obedience & Behavior section for information to help you address any problems you may be experiencing.
