About NHS: Nevada Humane Society (NHS) is a charitable, non-profit organization founded in 1932. In 2007, NHS became a no-kill shelter and launched a bold effort to help Washoe County become a no-kill community. In 2014, NHS expanded lifesaving efforts to include Carson City. Today, more than 70,000 animals have been placed into loving homes since 2007 and NHS continues to grow, maintaining its status as one of the top communities in the country for saving homeless pets. Working in partnership with Washoe County Regional Animal Services and a network of rescue organizations, NHS has put Washoe County in the very top tier of communities nationwide for saving homeless pets.
NHS provides shelter and care to homeless pets, low-cost spay/neuter and vaccines, pet adoption and other services for the community. NHS is not affiliated with, nor do we receive funds from, any other agency, including Washoe County Regional Animal Services and the Humane Society of the US.
*City of Reno park regulations do not allow dogs at special events. The only pets allowed will be adoptable pets from NHS and service dogs.
