Looking to add to your family and make a positive impact on the world at the same time? Adopt a pet from a local shelter or organization! During the COVID-19 pandemic, many pets are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to place pets with families.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages and sizes without a home across Nevada — and many of them are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a lovable new friend is at Spca Of Northern Nevada, where Spud the dog is waiting patiently, or another local facility. If you aren’t sure if you have time to take care of a pet year round, many shelters also offer opportunities to foster pets until they are placed in appropriate homes.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, meet Nike/Pickle/Zip, a Catahoula Leopard Dog mix up for adoption. If cats are more your thing, there are several great cats available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
