SPCA of Northern Nevada: Disaster Grant Report

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

To support two fire evacuations with shelter partners and subsequent pet care during the summer and fall of 2021.

It helped cover the expenses for two fire-rescue transports, staff overtime, and expenses to house the animals in our shelter until they were adopted out. The average cost for us to rescue each animal is more than $500 by the time they are adopted.

Leo (first photo) is a 5-year-old hound mix who was brought in to our shelter during a fire rescue. Leo came to us with an infection on his nose, which we treated over the course of a few weeks. Once Leo was healed and cleared, he was adopted to a loving family!
