Tails of Nye County
Tails of Nye County is a registered nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to helping to improve the lives of the dogs and cats of Nye County through its spay and neuter programs.
We offer dog and cat owners a low cost spay/neuter program based on their ability to pay. Along with this service, we educate pet owners on the positive aspects of spaying and neutering.
Additionally, we are dedicated to helping the community with its growing feral cat population. Feral cats are the “wild” offspring of domestic cats and are primarily the result of pet owners’ abandonment or failure to spay and neuter their animals, which allows them to breed uncontrolled. An unaltered female, her mate, and their off-spring can result in over 10,000 cats in just a few years! Tails of Nye County provides this community the Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) program which is the only humane, effective approach to care for our feral cat population. Cats are trapped, spayed or neutered, vaccinated, ear tipped and then returned to their outdoor home. They are returned to the place they are trapped because cats live in family groups and are bonded to their environments and colonies. An ear tip identifies a cat that is neutered and vaccinated and is a painless procedure that is done while the cat is under anesthesia. Without human intervention, there is no end to the cycle of reproduction and misery of homeless cats. Tails of Nye County is dedicated to ending this suffering through their TNR program which traps and sterilizes over 1000 stray cats annually.
To be able to continue our work, we fundraise throughout the year and depend on the support of the community and local businesses. If you have any questions regarding our organization, please feel free to call us at 702-306-3245.
