'Empty the Shelter Adoption Event' at Nevada Humane Society

Posted: Updated:

Help Empty the Shelter at Nevada Humane Society this weekend. The adoption center will be open for extended hours from 8:00am until 8:00pm on Saturday, October 13.

Adopt an adult cat or dog for the price you choose, and kittens are just $40. Empty the Shelter is part of a three-month national pet adoption competition—the 2012 ASPCA $100K Challenge.  Nevada Humane Society is one of 50 shelters nationwide competing for a grand prize of $100,000.

The Empty the Shelter adoption event will also feature:

  • A Dog Wash—for a minimum $10 donation, local pet owners can treat their canine pals to a bath and towel dry courtesy of Nevada Humane Society volunteers. The Dog Wash is from 12 Noon – 4:00pm
  • Breezy's Hawaiian Shaved Ice—purchase a tasty snow cone!
  • Raffle Contest—purchase raffle tickets for the chance to win a pair of tickets to the Oakland Raiders/Tampa Bay Buccaneers game on November 4
  • Music by The Boogie Man
  • Refreshments courtesy of Sam's Club

When you adopt during the Empty the Shelter adoption event, you're helping Nevada Humane Society meet a goal of adopting 2,600 pets before October 31 for a chance to win $100,000 for homeless pets.                                                           

Nevada Humane Society is open for pet adoptions seven days a week and the public is invited to come by to meet the many adorable pets available for adoption. The shelter is located at 2825 Longley Lane in Reno and is open for normal adoption hours Sunday through Friday from 11:00 am until 6:30 pm and on Saturday from 10:00 am until 6:30 pm. For more information on adopting a pet, please call 775-856-2000, ext. 302 or visit online at nevadahumanesociety.org.
