Lost Pets - Reclaim or Adoption

Washoe County Regional Animal Services Critical Capacity Notice:

Animal Services does not provide pet adoption services. WCRAS and Nevada Humane Society (NHS) are partnering agencies that provide separate services to the community.  Through the partnership, NHS facilitates the adoption process for most of the unclaimed animals that come into our facility.  In addition, WCRAS works with N. Nevada SPCA as well as a multitude of rescue groups to place the remaining adoptable animals.


For more information on adopting a pet through the Nevada Humane Society, please visit the Nevada Humane Society website.


Additional animal adoptions websites: SPCAPet Network, Res-Que, Boxers and Buddies
