CARSON CITY, NV - A new agreement has been reached to have the Nevada Humane Society lead Carson City’s Animal Services. The agreement will include adoptions, shelter, and regulation
services.

Carson City's city manager says this public/private relationship will enable Carson City to provide its citizens expanded levels of service and further expand northern Nevada’s leadership position in animal
stewardship. The city itself had been running the department.

The partnership makes Carson City the second community in Nevada to become no-kill, which is defined as a shelter that does not euthanize animals for time or space. A no-kill shelter is designed to save more than 90% of the animals that arrive, only euthanizing animals that have no quality of life or that are considered dangerous.
