Angel Tree at SPCA of Northern Nevada

December 4, 2013

The SPCA of Northern Nevada’s Angel Tree promotion is available through December 25, 2013. The Angel Tree is an opportunity for the community to sponsor the care of an animal at the shelter through the kennel and cat colony sponsorship program. The average cost to care for an animal during their stay at the SPCA is $350. By sponsoring an animal, people can provide them with medical attention, microchipping, food, lodging, grooming, loving attention, and help them find their forever home.

Sponsors will receive an engraved heart on either the dog kennels or cat colonies at the SPCA for one year with their name or the name of someone they wish to honor. They will receive a handmade ornament with a picture of their sponsored animal for themselves or as a gift for someone special. They will be notified when their sponsored animal is adopted. As an option, they can be included on our sponsored animal board at the shelter and online, and in our general and donor newsletters in January.

To sponsor an animal, just fill out the sponsorship application available online, at the Stanley James Walker Pet Adoption Center, 4950 Spectrum Blvd., or the SPCA Thrift Stores at 4th and Vine and 1270 E. Plumb Lane. Information on animals available for sponsorship can be found at the above locations or online. Groups and organizations are encouraged to sponsor together as a group. Consider sponsoring an animal as a gift for another animal lover in your life or in memory of a beloved pet.

The SPCA, founded in 1998, is Reno’s original no-kill animal shelter. Our mission is to be an innovative regional leader in responsible treatment of homeless cats and dogs, primarily through their rescue and placement in forever loving homes and by promoting spaying and neutering to control pet overpopulation. We accomplish our mission with dedication to our core values and a lifetime commitment to our animals.
