Together we can save 4 million adoptable pets from euthanasia each year simply because they are homeless. Spreading the word helps change how people think and can make homeless pets a thing of the past.


Adopting saves lives

For every pet adopted, we can make room for another. Flip the pages of our virtual adoption book and find the pet that touches your heart.


Spaying/neutering is the key


Spaying/neutering curtails overpopulation and homelessness by preventing the birth of unwanted pets. Every spayed/neutered pet keeps approximately 55 unwanted puppies from entering a shelter.

Northern Nevada Regional Animal Center

Our mission is to create a facility large enough to accommodate animals not just of Lyon County but the surrounding counties as well. We will make every attempt to never turn away any animal. We also wish to incorporate this facility with organizations such as CASA, targeted to assisting abandoned or abused children, providing, not only a type of therapy facility for dogs and cats, but also a place where children are helped to recover some of their ability to bond and improve their self esteem.

Northern Nevada Regional Animal Center (NNRAC)'s goal is to create a shelter that helps animals and owners become a good match. We want this center to be for people and pets of the community. Our future expectations include an educational center for pet owners that will help them understand their pets and help eliminate old habits and prevent new ones from forming. Our goal is to have an animal behavior specialist available to make sure that bad behaviors are not repeated with new family members. We want to create forever homes for our animals and reduce the amount of frustration and the number of returned pets to the shelter. We believe this center will have a positive affect on the community as well as all individuals involved.
