Twenty cats and kittens were recently found abandoned, secured inside milk crates and left outside a veterinary clinic. They are now at Nevada Humane Society and will soon be available for adoption.

“The veterinarian who found these kitties said the milk crates were stacked one atop the other and left outside behind their clinic. The person went to great lengths to secure them in the crates and dropped them off at a time when no one would have seen it happen,” said Denise Stevens, Operations Director for Nevada Humane Society.

The cats will all be fully examined by Nevada Humane Society’s veterinary team, spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped before they become available for adoption. All the cats are sweet and friendly, with the only immediately apparent medical issue being mild upper respiratory infections (colds).

“We are happy that these cats are now safe, but the added number of animals increases our need for pet adoptions this weekend. This is normally a time of year when the homeless pet population begins to decrease, but we are seeing the opposite,” said Bonney Brown, Executive Director for Nevada Humane Society. “In addition, pet adoptions are down slightly so far this fall. Hence, we are asking animal lovers to please consider coming into the shelter this weekend to adopt a pet. ”


In addition to the many cats in need of homes, Nevada Humane Society also has nearly 190 dogs awaiting adoption.

This weekend, people can adopt an adult cat or dog for the price they choose and kittens are just $40. All pets are spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.

Nevada Humane Society is located at 2825 Longley Lane in Reno. The shelter is open Sunday through Friday from 11:00 am until 6:30 pm and on Saturday from 10:00 am until 6:30 pm. For more information on adopting a pet, please call 775-856-2000, ext. 302.
