There are lots of fun, creative ways you can help support Nevada Humane Society shelter pets in need. In addition to much needed monetary donations, you can help by; sending a warm, healthy meal to a shelter pet in need, donating an item from our wishlists to help care for the animals in our shelter, or sharing a little joy with a shelter pet by sending them a toy or treat. Below you’ll find details on the many ways you can help support Nevada Humane Society pets while they wait to be adopted.
Provide a Healthy Meal to a Shelter Pet
This New Year our team of dedicated animal caregivers and volunteers hope to cook and serve healthy, pet-friendly dinners for our shelter pets to enjoy. Your donations make it possible for us to serve our shelter dogs a warm, vet-approved meal of; green beans, boneless, skinless chicken breasts, rice and sweet potatoes to bring them a little joy while they wait to be adopted. With your support, we can purchase these items to make sure our shelter pets get treated to special meals.
Share your Happy Tails
We love getting updates from our adopters and fosters on how our shelter pets are doing. These updates are not only special to our team, but often encourage potential adopters and fosters to commit to caring for a shelter pet -when they see how much joy these pets bring to people’s lives they just can’t resist!
Our Happy Tails pages shares tips & ideas on how to you can share Happy Tails of you and your Nevada Humane Society shelter pet and it features some of our favorite, recent Happy Tail photos, videos and stories. This page is intended to be a space where the community can share Happy Tails of how their Furry Soulmates are doing and the adventures they are having together and we are excited to share it with and for you to start sharing your Happy Tails!
We love ALL Happy Tails but if you need ideas, we would love to see you and your Furry Soulmate:
- Out and about at local businesses as they begin to re-open
- On outdoor adventures
- Snuggling at home together
- Just plain having fun!

Send Much Needed Cat & Kitten Food
In addition to the animals in our shelters, we also provide care for many, many homeless pets being cared for by our foster volunteers. Our greatest need right now is for food for our kittens in need of foster care before they are old enough to be adopted into loving homes. If you would like to help the Nevada Humane Society homeless kittens, please consider purchasing cat and kitten food from our Wish Lists. Our greatest needs right now are for wet kitten food and dry cat food -for mamas and babies.
