The Duck Race provides Nevada Humane Society with essential funding that ensures we can continue our life-saving work to care and find homes for Northern Nevada pets in need. We thank you for your incredible support of this year's Duck Race!

About NHS: Nevada Humane Society is a non-profit organization that is entirely reliant on donations, community support and grant funding. NHS is proud to be the only open-admission, no-kill shelter in Nevada meaning we take in any animals regardless of age, illness, or past trauma. In 2007, NHS became a no-kill shelter and launched a bold effort to help Washoe County become a life-saving community. In 2014, NHS expanded life-saving efforts to include Carson City, by opening a shelter there. Today, more than 130,000 animals have been placed into loving homes since 2007 and NHS continues to grow, maintaining its status as one of the leading animal shelters in the country for saving homeless pets –having helped more than 16,000 animals in 2020 alone.
