Neon Dog Walk registration fees allow Nevada SPCA to continue to be a safety net for our most vulnerable animals, homeless pets, in Southern Nevada.

Nevada Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Nevada SPCA) was founded in 1982, as Southern Nevada’s original no-kill shelter.
 
We are a 501 (c)(3) charitable non-profit organization that relies entirely on the generous donations of animal lovers like YOU to make our lifesaving work possible! Our shelter does not receive funding from any large national SPCA, ASPCA, or any government agency; we are an independent non-profit that serves Southern Nevada.
 
Nevada SPCA takes in over 3,000 dogs, cats, rabbits, and other small pets annually: treating each and every animal in our care as an individual with a name, identity, and unique personality. Our ultimate goal is to place them into loving homes where they can thrive, provide companionship, and maintain rewarding relationships with their human family.
 
Due to IRS restrictions, Neon Dog Walk registration fees are not tax deductible. However, any amount donated to Nevada SPCA above the cost of registration is tax deductible (such as any funds you raise for our event.)
Check out registration fees for adults in our registration section. 
"Fur" sure! Neon Dog Walk teams consist of at least 5 people and a maximum of 10 people who are working together toward a fundraising goal. The more people on your team, the more you can help Nevada SPCA!
Each registration fee is per person, but your paid registration supports Nevada SPCA. 
No, your dog is included in your registration! We only ask that all dogs participating in the walk are up to date on vaccinations, well-mannered, and remain leashed at all times!
Unfortunately, no. However, you can walk in honor of your other pets!
