Nevada SPCA Moves Into A New Shelter

For nearly four decades, Nevada SPCA has sheltered thousands of animals. Thanks to their work, around two thousand dogs, cats, rabbits, and other pets find homes each year.  

But it hasn’t always been smooth sailing for this nonprofit.

In 2019, the organization was shrouded in scandal following stolen funds from Nevada SPCA President Cathy Jung. Monetary donations that were supposed to be used for getting the nonprofit into a new building were spent at places like the PGA store, Pier One, Michael's and more.

Now, after a change in leadership and more than fifteen years at its former location. The organization has a new home off Hacienda and Procyon.

Lori Heeren, Executive Director, Nevada SPCA
