Las Vegas Valley Humane Society


OUR MISSION
 

The Las Vegas Valley Humane Society (LVVHS) is a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation established according to Nevada laws for public benefit. It is dedicated to improving the welfare of animals. Its articles of incorporation detail the primary purposed of the organization as follows:

  • The prevention of cruelty to animals.
  • The relief of suffering among animals.
  • Reducing the over-breeding of domestic animals - primarily cats and dogs - through public education and sterilization programs. Clark County Animal Statistics.
  • Improving the tragic plight of animals used in biomedical research and testing.
  • Protecting endangered wildlife.

The LVVHS’s primary emphasis is on stray and abandoned animals. As a part of its efforts to deal with cruelty and the relief of suffering, it provides advocacy for animals in terms of legislation at both the local and state level. Recent examples include speaking at legislative hearings for anti-tethering efforts, dog fighting and puppy mill statutes, spay/neuter ordinances and, responding to complaints at local facilities such as the efforts which substantially reduced the sales of animals at the open air Broad Acre Swap Meet and required those vendors who continued to sell to meet temperature and other requirements.

In addition to its advocacy on behalf of animals, the LVVHS rescues and rehabilitates stray and abandoned animals, especially those that are injured.

In order to reduce the over-breeding of domestic animals, it provides low cost spay and neuter clinics (SNIP Clinics) for cats (dates and locations) and referrals for dogs. The LVVHS targets single family housing areas to provide spays/neuters for both dogs and cats in order to stop the population growth in those areas. It provides a trap-vaccinate-neuter and return to custodian program for feral cats as well.

We are constantly in need of funds as we are ENTIRELY supported by tax-deductible voluntary contributions from the public. We receive NO state, local, or federal government funding; NO funding from The Humane Soceity of the United States. ALL funds received are used SOLELY for the animals. All animals rescued receive veterinary care, disease testing, shots, and are spayed or neutered. Donations may be sent to our address below, or link to our website to use PayPal.

 

Volunteers Graciously Accepted

We need volunters to rescue animals and work at the adoption centers. All volunteers are trained for whatever job they care to do. WE HAVE SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE! Please help!
 

Become a Foster Parent

We rely on foster homes until our pets find permanent homes as we have no "shelter". Instead, we have a network of volunteers kind enough to share their homes and lives with our animals in transition. If you are interested in fostering, please contact us or fill out an on-line application . Thank you.
