Donate Supplies or a Vehicle


NHS is a charitable, 501(c)3, non-profit organization and the Federal Tax ID is 88-0072720. Our lifesaving success is dependent about individual, business, and foundation donations. Thanks for your support on behalf of the animals!


Your kind gifts to the Nevada Humane Society allow us to spend our funds on other, more immediate needs. We deeply appreciate your generosity! Generally, most new or gently used pet items are accepted, including things like toys, pet beds, carriers and kennels. Opened pet food or treats are accepted if they are not expired and we prefer them in the original packaging. Towels, blankets and sheets are other items we can use. Donations may be made during our regular adoption hours, which are Sunday through Friday, 11am to 6:30pm, and on Saturday, from 10am to 6:30pm at either our Reno or Carson City location.


For non-pet related donation items, such as furniture, household goods and other human necessities, please know they are generally not accepted. Appliances and large electronics, including televisions, computers and more, are also not generally not accepted (though some modern technologies may be with prior arrangement). For specific questions, please contact 775-856-2000 ext. 332.
