Nevada Humane Society
cordially invites you to
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 2017
6 IN THE EVENING
Peppermill Resort Spa Casino
Presented by Renown and Hometown Health, this annual fundraiser has been revamped and reenergized to transport guests all the way to Cuba for a night of entertainment and giving back that won't soon be forgotten. Exciting, Cuban-themed entertainment includes dinner, online bidding (silent auction) and a live auction, and much more! Salsa dancers and congo drums will make you move to the music, aerialists will offer sky-high entertainment and you’ll get a kick out of a Ricky Ricardo lookalike and celebrity impersonator. Savor unlimited Mutt-jitos and Meow-jitos or pick up a Cuban cigar (for enjoyment after and outside of the event) hand rolled right there in front of you. You’ll also meet some of the special furry friends that will have their best paw forward to thank you personally for helping them get the second chance they deserve.
Looking for something fun to wear that fits in with the theme? Big thanks to the Pacifiers and Louis Blog for this article that will have you shopping in no time!
All proceeds directly benefit homeless pets at Nevada Humane Society.
Nevada Humane Society (NHS) is a charitable, non-profit organization and the only open-admission, no-kill shelter in the state of Nevada. We have been bringing people and animals together since 1932. In 2007, our Board of Directors changed the mission of the organization to one of lifesaving, promoting animal welfare while finding homes and providing care for homeless pets in Northern Nevada. Today, in 2017, we have saved over 90,000 animals thanks to a wonderful community and can proudly say that we have created a true safety net for the animals.
Our mission is to care for pets, find them homes and save lives. Our vision is that all pets should have a healthy, happy life. Our guiding principles are to promote humane treatment, relieve suffering, operate our no-kill shelters and educate and engage the community. Thanks to the amazing support of the community and the hard work of our Board of Directors, dedicated staff, volunteers and partners, we have achieved dramatic results. In 2012, Washoe County was highlighted by Maddie’s Fund, honored with the Community Lifesaving Award and named one of the safest communities in the country for homeless pets, with a 95% lifesaving rate.
NHS is proud to be engaged at the cutting edge of animal welfare. We are recognized as a leader in animal sheltering and stewardship and are considered a national model, educating shelters everywhere on lifesaving practices. NHS is a charitable, 501(c)3, non-profit organization and the Federal Tax ID is 88-0072720.
