The City of Yerington’s local animal shelter has many dogs that are looking for their fur-ever home, so please take the time to make sure this pet is right for you, your family and any other pets you may have at home.

All adoptions are final. 

Dax is a tall, unique Great Dane-Pit mix two-year-old. He would love to have an active home to enjoy and help him fulfill his potential. Dax has had some training with pulling a cart in a harness and he likes all people. He can be unpredictable with other dogs, however. He’s a handsome, high energy, lovable character!

Remi is a pretty, black and white pit mix, about two years old. Remi is quiet, sweet, friendly with people, but sometimes shy and can be won over with treats and scratches. Unfortunately, he is not good with other dogs. Remi would make a great service or companion dog for a person or household with no other pets.

Meet Artie. He is a friendly two year old male pit bull mix. He is quiet and sweet with people, but not with other dogs. Artie would be a good couch potato, service type dog for someone wanting an only-dog companion.

Budah is a lovely, sweet male pit mix and is under one year old. Budah would make a wonderful family dog and is not rough or overly energetic. However, he should not be around small dogs or other small critters.

Pumpkin is a friendly 2-year-old who came to the shelter as a stray. She is probably a mix of bird dog, boxer and lab. She loves people and has lots of good energy. She gets along with most dogs, and would love to go to a home with active people.

Lost or Surrendered Animals

Impounded animals are held for five days to allow the owner to reclaim their pet. If an adoptable animal is not reclaimed during that time, the animal is put up for adoption to the public.

The shelter does not adopt out aggressive, sick, injured, or nuisance animals.
