Nevada Humane Society (NHS) cares for over 16,000 pets in need each year at its Reno and Carson City adoption centers, providing training, rehabilitation, and medical care until each pet is matched with their forever home. The organization also helps reduce the number of animals surrendered by providing low-cost spay and neuter programs and pet food assistance to low-income families.
Through the month of May, NHS will host Paws for a Cause, their first-ever online fundraising event. The educational campaign will take its virtual audience on the four week journey of a pet’s transition from intake at the shelter to finding their forever home. NHS hopes to raise $100,000 to help them get closer to their ultimate goal to make Washoe County & Carson City no-kill communities.
1-800-PetMeds® is sponsoring the Paws for a Cause for Adoption Week, the first week of the month-long virtual event during which NHS will highlight the story of a long-term pet’s journey to her forever family. Funds raised during Adoption Week will help the organization provide life-saving care and find new homes for pets at Reno and Carson City shelters.
“The first-ever Paws for a Cause will give an inside look at how the NHS supports pets and their new families from intake to adoption and beyond,” says Larissa Schenck, Director of Marketing at 1-800-PetMeds®. “In Carson City alone they’ve increased the life-saving success rate from 55% to 95%. We’re honored to sponsor adoption week to help make even more success stories possible.”
