Lyon County Animal Shelter

Our Pet List

Who We Are

We are "Lyon County Animal Services". We handle the animal control responsibilities for the unincorporated areas of Lyon County Nevada. Lyon is a rural county with a growing population. We are open six days a week. Our office hours are 7am to 3:00pm Monday-Friday. Our Kennel/Adoption hours are 10:00 am to 3:00 pm Monday-Friday. Saturday is ADOPTION DAY KENNEL IS OPEN FROM 8-12 CLOSED EVERY SUNDAY On Saturday our Volunteers are here from 8:00 am until 12:00 pm. Many times they do not answer the phone because they are out in the kennel with the dogs. Please stop in and a Volunteer will be happy to show you our adoptable dogs.

Adopting a Friend

We normally have many dogs available for adoption. Our adoption fee depends on if the animal has already been spay or neutered or if it still needs to be. All adoptions include a free one year license for County residents. We do not have a Vet on staff so the animals are not given a well animal check. Animals are sometimes exposed to illness before and after their stay at the shelter therefore they are an "as is" adoption.

Come Visit Us!

We are on Hwy 50 West, 28 miles east of Carson City and 3 1/2 miles west of Silver Springs (the junction of Hwys 50 and 95A). We are just west of Lahontan Medical Center and just east of the Ramsey Weeks Cutoff.
