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.

All adoptions are final. 

Dax is a tall, unique Great Dane-Pit mix two-year-old. He has been calming down more and more as he matures. He walks nicely on the leash, has a sweet temperament, loves people and lies calmly at your feet once the initial greeting play is over. He seems better with other dogs, too, in that he doesn’t act aggressively. We are still being cautious with other dogs, however, and will be sure of prior introductions before adoptions to a family with other animals. Ideally, he should go to a family that likes to go for walks and doesn’t have other dogs. Or to a family that has fenced acreage that he can patrol/protect yet still be a loving part of the family.

This is Lady. She is under one year old and very friendly and energetic. She is a Queensland healer McNabb cattle dog mix. She was surrendered to the shelter because she was becoming food dominant with the other dog in the family. Lady is not well trained, so she needs a home that will give her lots of attention and activity. She loves to chase her ball and play tug-of-war and she is learning to walk on a leash. She would be a very fun companion for an outdoor type person. Come see Lady at Yerington animal shelter any day from nine till noon. 775-463-6578.

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.
