Memorial and Honor Gifts
Making a memorial or honor gift to Nevada Humane Society is an excellent way to pay tribute to the special animals, people and events in your life. The added bonus is that your gift will help make the world a brighter place for homeless pets!
As we know how difficult it is to lose a loved one, memorial gifts allow you to donate in memory of a person or pet. If you wish to make a memorial gift, please specify the name of the person or pet that has passed, as well as a contact and address for the family. This allows us to send an acknowledgement to the family to let them know that you made a donation in memory of their beloved one and that gift will provide care and help us find homes for homeless pets in Northern Nevada. Memorial gifts may be made online, in person, by check or over the phone as long as all above information is specified at the time of the donation.
Honor gifts help you celebrate the special people and pets in your life. Many people do this for a holiday or birthday gift for fellow animal lovers. If you wish to make an honor gift, please specify the name of the person or pet that you are honoring, as well as an address for them. This allows us to send an acknowledgement to them to let them know that you made a donation in their honor (or their pet’s honor). Your gift will provide care and help us find homes for homeless pets in Northern Nevada. Honor gifts may be made online, in person, by check or over the phone as long as all above information is specified at the time of the donation.

Where the Money Goes
Our standard adoption fee is $50 while our average cost to care for an animal at our shelter is $240 which includes spay/neuter surgery, microchipping, vaccinations, any other needed veterinary treatment, and daily care until adoption. In order to save lives and meet the needs of potential adopters, we frequently run promotions that discount our adoption fees. The lower fees are necessary to ensure that our homeless animals find loving, new homes, but obviously don’t begin to cover our costs.
Our lifesaving success is dependent about individual, business, and foundation donations. Thanks for your support on behalf of the animals!
