Big Hearts, Little Animals Brings People and Pets Together
From the Nevada Humane Society:
Nevada Humane Society is introducing another unique, local campaign. Big Hearts, Little Animals was created to raise awareness for people and pets in need. From April 24 through April 29, when you visit Nevada Humane Society and bring 4 cans of human food to benefit the Food Bank of Northern Nevada, you will receive half off the standard pet adoption fee for adult cats and dogs (standard fees are $50, excluding specially priced pets, puppies and kittens). Big Hearts, Little Animals encourages people, even if they are not able to adopt a pet right now, to drop off a food donation and spend time with the animals, simply offering companionship. The shelter is open daily, from 11am until 6:30pm except for Saturdays in which it opens an hour earlier at 10am.
“Recently, the enhanced branding of the Biggest Little City encouraged us to get even more involved in the community,” said Kimberly Wade, Senior Manager for Communications and Events for Nevada Humane Society. “Through Big Hearts, Little Animals, we are hoping to encourage people to look at multiple causes—not just to adopt a pet, but also to let people know we are here, especially for those who haven’t considered adoption before. In addition, we want help the Food Bank of Northern Nevada, because we’re here for not just pets but people too.”
A donation bin from the Food Bank of Northern Nevada has been placed in Nevada Humane Society’s shelter and people are encouraged to drop off food donations any time during regular pet adoption hours. The bin will be out through April 29. Nevada Humane Society is also working in conjunction with the BiggestLittleCity.org to promote sharing the positive features of Reno, showcasing the variety of good that is continually spread across the community.
