Amidst the global pandemic, Nevada SPCA has urgently worked to find placement for many shelter animals.

Since Gov. Steve Sisolak’s announcement on March 17; Nevada SPCA has placed close to 80 dogs and cats into foster homes, including one chinchilla and one rabbit.

These animals have proven to be a tremendous source of joy for foster families, in addition to freeing up valuable kennel space for other animals in need.

Around 18 dogs and cats that were placed into fostering, have found permanent placement either with their foster families or through the wonderful networking efforts of their foster.

If you are interested in fostering an animal in need; you can apply online at nevadaspca.org and complete the online foster application.

If there is an animal that is a good fit for your home and lifestyle, Nevada SPCA will contact you.

Nevada SPCA is closed to the public.

For additional information call (702) 872-7722.

Virtual adoptions are available and are facilitated curbside by appointment.
