Celebrate Ancient Egypt: When Dogs and Cats Were Gods and Goddesses

August 1, 2011

During the month of August, Nevada Humane Society is Celebrating Ancient Egypt, where dogs and cats were considered to be gods and goddesses. From August 1 through 31, you can adopt your own special companion at the price you choose! This special fee applies to pets four months and older and excludes specially priced dogs. Each cat, dog, and kitten available for adoption has been spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped, normally a $200 value.

Visit the shelter on August 6th from Noon to 4pm for a special kick-off event featuring Middle Eastern food sampling and free photos with NHS mascots Hope the cat and Lucky the dog. Visit with wonderful pets who are available for adoption and take home your very own “Cleo-cat-ra” or “Bark Antony.”

“If you have ever considered adopting a pet or adding an additional pet to your family, now is the time,” said Denise Stevens, Operations Director for the Society. “We are at the height of kitten season and our shelter population is at an all-time high. Adoptions are desperately needed so that we can continue to take in homeless animals from Washoe County Regional Animal Services. To continue our lifesaving work, please help us spread the word to others about the importance of adopting right now.”

Nevada Humane Society is open for adoptions 7 days a week, from 11:00 am to 6:30 pm and an hour earlier at 10:00 am on Saturdays, at 2825 Longley Lane, Reno. For more information, call 775-856-2000.
