The Nevada Humane Society’s Mission is to promote animal welfare and
provide for the relief and prevention of all animal suffering in Northern
Our adoption policies are designed to ensure permanent, loving
and safe homes for the animals entrusted to our care. The lifelong
well-being of each and every animal is our primary concern.

on the policies page.
Please note that landlord approval is required for all renters and home checks will be conducted for select dogs.
These requirements are designed to ensure that our animals have the best chance of success in their new homes.
