Hop to Adopt at Nevada Humane Society - The community is invited to share in some Easter Egg-citement by joining us for an Easter Egg Hunt at Nevada Humane Society. For Peeps sake, hop on over, this is going to be an eggstra-special time for your children and our adoptable pets. From 11 a.m. until 2 p.m., enjoy a bounce house and refreshments while you visit homeless pets. Admission is free, although donations will be accepted. All proceeds directly benefit the homeless pets at Nevada Humane Society. All adopters will also receive Easter baskets filled to the brim with Egg-citing goodies for kids and pets. In addition to dogs and cats, there are several small animals available for adoption, including rabbits, hamsters, rats, and chinchillas. All dogs and cats are spayed and neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped before being adopted. Rabbits are also spayed or neutered. These services would normally cost over $250.
