Carson City Nevada Humane Society offering free pet adoptions

If you’ve never experienced the love of a senior pet, you’re missing out! That’s why Nevada Humane Society created an exciting adoption promotion centered on the Golden Years, waiving adoption fees for senior pets who are aged to perfection. Yes, that means if a cat or a dog is over the age of six and matured like a fine wine they can join your family today for free!

The advantages of adopting an oldie but a goodie are immense. They have mellowed and are much easier to handle. Dogs tend to be house-trained, generally know basic commands, are content to lie by your side (more or less), and don’t seem to require as much exercise as a teenage dog. Cats understand the value of a cozy bed and some serious R&R compared to their younger counterparts who enjoy climbing the curtains, knocking things off your shelves, and getting into everything. All seniors, no matter what age, have every bit as much (maybe even more) unconditional love to give.

Nevada Humane Society’s senior pet adoption promotion runs Nov. 5-16. All dogs and cats are spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped, services valued at $250. Adoption fees are waived on all dogs and cats over the age of six, at both the Reno and Carson City shelter. Standard adoption policies apply.

Nevada Humane Society is open for pet adoptions seven days a week at two locations from 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and an hour earlier at 10 a.m. on Saturday. For pet adoptions in Reno, go to 2825 Longley Lane. Pet adoptions in Carson City are at 3770 Butti Way.
