All are welcome to visit the Carson Shelter on 549 Airport Road from 11 a.m.-6:30 p.m., except from 2-3 p.m. when the shelter closes for naptime. “It’s a big day for us. Our organization has been in the community for a long time,” said Clay Johnson, Carson City shelter manager. “We’ve come such a long way from essentially a high-kill shelter to a no-kill shelter with some of the highest save rates in the country.”

The NHS opened in 1932 to address the suffering of stray animals. In 2007, the organization changed to one of lifesaving, promoting animal welfare while finding homes and providing care for homeless pets in Northern Nevada. In 2014, NHS expanded to include Carson City.
