We Love Our Pets, You Can Too

May 20

Nevada Humane Society (NHS) is asking for the public’s help to increase adoptions as the shelter is nearing capacity to take in more animals. NHS is celebrating National Rescue Dog Day (May 20, 2023) by putting on an event: “We Love Our Animals. You Can Too.” This promotional event is to help adoptable pets get into loving homes as well as extend a welcoming invitation to our amazing, supportive community into the NHS Reno shelter for tours and information. Please help us spread the word to the community about our event.

Nationwide, animal shelters have been reaching capacity and unable to take in animals in need. Housing shortages and cost of living increases (including pet related care) have affected adoption rates across the country. NHS has seen this trend on a local level, as potential adopters often cite the need for pet-friendly housing and affordable pet food as barriers. Regardless, the organization needs more fosters, volunteers, and animal enrichment resources for the animals at the shelter. This event is designed to bring community awareness on these issues.

Attendees can expect:

– 👣 Tours of the NHS Reno shelter (2825 Longley Ln B, Reno, NV 89502) will be given every 20 minutes from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm, then again from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm. Tours have limited spots available. Interested persons can use this link to sign up for a tour: https://httpsnevadahumanesociety.org/tour_signup

– 🍔🍦 Food trucks and vendors will be in the NHS parking lot throughout the business day from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm. There will be sweets, treats, and food available for purchase to anyone who attends.

– 🐾🐕 If anyone is interested in adopting any available animals following the tours, NHS will be open for adoptions. All interested adopters can find more details about animal adoptions online at https://nevadahumanesociety.org/adoptions/
