Frequently asked questions:


Q: Where is your shelter located?

A: We currently do not have a shelter. We are an adoption partner with PetSmart in Carson City where we house many of our current cats that are up for adoption but we primarily rely on foster homes.

Q: I have a cat/dog that I need to find a home for. Can I bring them to you?

A:  The majority of our animals are abandoned or taken from surrounding shelters.  We take owner surrendered pets when space is available.  We have a surrender fee of $25.00 to help off set medical costs.
