Reno SPCA Report
October 11, 2022

SPCA of Northern Nevada (SPCA-NN) is very grateful for this grant, which allowed us to get the necessary dental equipment and full staff training so we can provide in-house dentals for our shelter pets!

Your organization has provided hundreds of pets with vital pain relief and improved oral health—thank you! Oral health neglect is one of the most common health problems our rescued animals present with. Our dream is to one day have adequate vet med staffing that we can provide the dentals, and extractions, for high-grade dental disease animals in our care, plus dental cleanings prior to adoption. This is only a possibility because of the grant we received through you!

We are currently planning a modest expansion of part of our Adoption Center (specifically our multi-purpose room) to accommodate our growing programs and we are including a small dental suite in that room expansion plan. As long as we can hire the additional support staff, then this will allow us to perform far more dentals with our current equipment while our existing surgical suite and vet med team continue their focus on HQHV spay/neuter surgeries every day.

Thank you so much!!!
