The downloadable Preliminary Adoption Application for Henderson Animal Care and Control Facility can be filled out and brought with you, or filled out at the shelter. If you are renting your place of residence, your landlord's information will be on this form for us to verify you are allowed to have this type of pet at your residence.

We will still reserve the right to conduct yard checks, and also reserve the right to deny any adoption if we feel it is not in the best interest of the pet, but now you are able to apply to adopt any type and size of pet regardless of where you live, as long as your landlord approves.

The Henderson Animal Care and Control Facility attends the annual Bark in the Park sponsored by The City of Henderson Parks and Recreation Department. Held the first Saturday of March at Cornerstone Park (1600 Wigwam Parkway).  2017 Bark in the Park will be held March 4th. It runs from 10:00am until 2:00pm. Attendance is free.

We also participate in "A No Kill Nation For Just One Day" on June 11th every year.

Pups at Petsmart is a program where our volunteers take select dogs on Saturdays to our off-site adoption location at Petsmart, located at 286 W. Lake Mead, Henderson, NV; and various other off-site events (locations and dates to be announced). It is a great program that not only gets the dogs out of their kennels for the day, and given a car ride, but also they are viewed by several other people who may not visit the shelter.  It has proven to be a successful program in getting these dogs more exposure and many are adopted because of their Saturday outing.

We have two off-site Petsmart locations where we have cats for adoption daily. Come check them out! 286 W. Lake Mead and 531 N. Stephanie. At these two locations, we also participate in Petsmart's National Adoption Weekends.  The dates this year are February 17th thru the 19th, May 5th thru the 7th, September 15th thru the 17th, and November 10th thru the 12th. The Lake Mead location will also have dogs available on the following dates, February 17th and 18th, May 5th and 6th, September 15th and 16th, and November 11th.
