The Nevada Humane Society is a no-kill shelter, creating a no-kill community. Its mission is to promote animal welfare and to provide relief from and prevention of all animal suffering in Northern Nevada.

Nevada Humane Society (NHS) is a charitable, non-profit organization founded in 1932. In 2007, NHS became a no-kill shelter and launched a bold effort to help Washoe County become a no-kill community. In 2014, NHS expanded lifesaving efforts to Carson City. Their mission, to find homes and provide care for homeless pets while sustaining a no-kill community, is accomplished through quality animal care, comprehensive adoption programs, accessible low-cost spay/neuter services, and a free Animal Help Desk. Today, more than 80,000 animals have been placed into loving homes since 2007 and NHS continues to grow, maintaining its status as one of the top communities in the country for saving homeless pets. NHS relies on generous donations to perform their lifesaving work and is open seven days a week for pet adoptions.
