Carol and Ray Fuller have been long time volunteers for the animal shelter.

Ray kindly put the roof on the night kennels to protect the dogs from the elements. A friend of his put in the block walls in the dog runs to protect the dogs from each other. Carol took great care of the dogs and walked them frequently.

A cottonwood tree had died at the animal shelter and both Carol and Ray brought a tree from their own property to replace the tree. It is now flourishing and providing much needed shade to the night kennels.

A plaque has been placed at that very tree as a thank you and show of appreciation to Carol and Ray Fuller for their dedicated service to the Yerington Animal Shelter.


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.

Bruce is a wonderful, energetic, loving boy, but he needs an owner who will teach him not to jump on people. He is around 80 pounds of solid German Shepherd and black lab and walks well on a leash. However he is so excited to see you that he might knock you over if you are not careful. Bruce gets along well with everyone including other dogs, but he must be fed separately as he is food dominant. He is nearly 2 years old now and is looking for a fun, savvy home that will give him love and attention.

All adoptions are final. 

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.
