Pet Adoption In The Reno Area: New Dogs, Cats Added This Week

Looking to add a new member to your family and give back to the Reno community at the same time? Consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many animal shelters in the Reno area are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home throughout Nevada — many of whom are located in your area. In the search for an adorable new friend, consider starting at a local animal shelter like Spca Of Northern Nevada, where Berlioz the cat is waiting patiently. If you aren’t sure if you have time to take care of a pet year round, many shelters also offer opportunities to foster pets until they are placed in permanent homes.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we put together a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, you might like Sam, an Australian Cattle Dog / Blue Heeler up for adoption. Or if cats are more your thing, there are several great cats available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
