The SPCA of Northern Nevada reached a milestone on Thursday. It reached its 20,000th adoption since the inception of the local SPCA in 1998.
Larry Remus of Reno adopted a six-month-old black Maltese dog named Bobby. As a thank you, the SPCA gave Remus several gift cards and prizes.
The SPCA's adoption goal for 2014 is 1,864 adoptions to coincide with Nevada's Sesquicentennial, the 150th anniversary of Nevada's admission to the Union.
You can adopt an animal by going to the SPCA located at 4950 Spectrum Blvd. in Reno. All available animals can be found online at www.spcanevada.org
