Numbers of Homeless Pets Reaching All Time High, Adoptions Needed Urgently Recently, 26 cats were rescued from a Virginia City home after their person passed away. These cats became celebrated of sorts in Virginia City.

Over the past couple of weeks 10 cats found loving homes through the temporary Virginia City Adoption Center hosted by the Silverland Inn and Suites. The remaining 16 were brought back to Reno this week and are now available for adoption at Nevada Humane Society.

“We are in great need of cat adoptions presently, both for these cats from the Great Virginia City Cat House Rescue and the many other wonderful adult cats waiting for homes here at Nevada Humane Society,” said Kimberly Chandler, of Nevada Humane Society. “Saving these Virginia City cats was the right thing to do, but it has put a strain on our resources and we are asking everyone out there, if you have ever considered adding a cat to your family, this would be an ideal time to adopt one with so many cats in need of loving homes.”

As the economy continues to cause turmoil for many Nevada residents, some people are being forced to move and pets are often left behind. To ease the cost of adding a new pet to your home adoption fees are waived for adult cats and discounted for dogs and kittens to help give homeless pets the chance they deserve for a new home.

If you can open your heart and home to a homeless pet, Nevada Humane Society is open for adoptions seven days a week, from 11 am to 6:30 pm and an hour earlier at 10:00 am on Saturdays, at 2825 Longley Lane, Reno. For more information, visit www.nevadahumanesociety.org or call 775-856-2000.
