A home is not complete until you share it with a pet. At Pet Network Humane Society, we save the lives of innocent, abandoned dogs and cats, and bring joy to those who open their hearts and homes to adopt these animals.

For over twenty years, Pet Network has rescued animals from overcrowded public shelters where they face euthanasia. We provide medical care, sterilization, and safe shelter while our volunteers comfort and socialize our four-legged residents until each one finds its new family. No animal runs out of time at our shelter.

Our education programs teach children about responsible pet ownership as we work to reduce the overpopulation of unwanted pets.

To raise money for our rescue and adoption programs, we offer boarding, grooming and doggie day care services to the community. However, we could not continue our life-saving work without ongoing financial support from individuals throughout the Tahoe region who care about our mission.

Our website features our adoptable dogs and cats, and provides valuable information about pet ownership, volunteer opportunities, special events and more. Watch some of our shelter residents through the live critter cam links on our website. Or make an online donation if you can.

We welcome visitors to our shelter in Incline Village. You will see we have begun a much needed renovation to replace flooring, improve heating and ventilation, and increase the safety and comfort of our four-legged residents and the dedicated staff who care for them.

Mark your calendar to join us at these special fundraising events: “The Fur Ball” on June 11th at the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe; and “It’s in the Bag,” a silent auction party with new and slightly used designer handbags, on August 17th at the Chateau in Incline Village.
