Jonny and Polly

CAPS cannot believe the response it has gotten from this Petfinder page. We have made some great friendships and found some wonderful forever homes for our animals. Currently we have 11 dogs, 4 older puppies (6-9 months), 11 cats, and 3 kittens.


Who We Are

The Churchill Animal Protection Society (CAPS) is an incorporated, nonprofit, no-kill, tax-exempt organization formed in May 1986. The shelter relies on donations from the community to keep the animals in good health and fed. CAPS' major goal is to find homes for the countless dogs and cats who have been abandoned, are born strays, or are no longer wanted by their families for a variety of reasons. All the animals will be here with us until a permanent home can be found for them.

The dogs love their inside/outside kennels and the wonderful play yards, where they can hang out with their buddies. We also have added a great meet-and-greet area at the shelter. This is a place where volunteers can sit with, brush, or play ball with the animals. Also, possible adopters can visit with our animals or introduce our dogs to their current pets. The cats are doing great in their cat room. The community has been wonderful in helping us furnish this room with new cat trees and scratchers, as well as beds, tents, toys, etc.


Also, we educate the community on the importance of spaying or neutering their current pets. If you are on Medicaid, Medicare, Food Stamps, or have a child on the Nevada Check-Up program, bring in your ID and your card, and we can get you set up with a voucher through Maddie's fund. You do not need an appointment at the shelter, but vouchers are only done Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday 10am to 1:30pm, and Saturday 8am to 11:30am. The cost is $10.00 for cats and $20.00 for dogs, payable to the vet's office at the time of surgery. CAPS does not have any other spay/neuter programs available at this time, but there are some low cost options available in the area. For more information on these programs, call the shelter at (775)423-7500

Volunteering and Donations

We are always in need of caring animal lovers to help us in our quest to give the best loving care to our special cats and dogs. If you live in the area and would like to volunteer, please come out to the shelter during business hours.



DOGS - Come out and spend some time with our dogs. The dogs need time to socialize with people in order to remain adoptable. Walk the dogs around the property, play ball with them in the play yard, brush their beautiful coats, or just sit and visit with them.


CATS - Cats need socialization, too. Spend some time in our cat room brushing, playing, or just cuddling with a variety of cats and kittens. Also, spend some time with the four office cats who have the run of the place.


Volunteers are welcome anytime during shelter hours!!

The animals thank you!!!
