Senator Dean Heller visited Noah's Animal House (NAH) in Reno on Friday.

NAH is a full-service pet shelter to assist animals from homes experiencing domestic violence.

NAH also provides veterinary services and kennels. 

The shelter opened in February and can house up to 36 pets at a time including cats and dogs.

"In both Reno and Las Vegas, Noah’s Animal House is doing incredible work by allowing victims to bring their pets with them to a shelter," Senator Heller said.

NAH's founder, Staci Alonso, was also present for the tour.

“Noah’s Animal House is fortunate to have Senator Dean Heller in our corner, fighting not only for our shelter, but also to help us carry out our mission of supporting domestic violence survivors,” Alonso said.
