Nevada Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Nevada SPCA) was founded in 1982, as Las Vegas’ original no-kill shelter. Their shelter does not receive funding from any large national SPCA, ASPCA, or any government agency; they are an independent non-profit that serves Southern Nevada. Nevada SPCA takes in over 2,000 dogs, cats, rabbits, and other small pets annually; treating each and every animal in their care as an individual with a name, identity, and unique personality. Their ultimate goal is to place them into loving homes where they can thrive, provide companionship, and maintain rewarding relationships with their human family.
In this episode, Wendy speaks with Lori Heeran, Executive Director at Nevada SPCA, about the organization history and mission. Also discussed was the inaugural 2021 Nevada SPCA SHelter Pet Calendar contest that launched on October 12.
