Thank you for your support of the 2020 Duck Race

We sold more ducks this year than ever before and we will be able to help provide care, and find homes, for the thousands of animals that come into our shelters every year thanks to your generous support. Our shelter pets thank you and we thank you -form the paw-tom of our hearts!

This year the Duck Race was live-streamed from our Reno shelter. To determine the winners of this year's Duck Race raffle prizes, our very own shelter pets competed in fun games to win YOU prizes! There were five games total, and each game identified a Duck Race prize winner. The games included; Kitten Races, the Pooch Plunge, Agility Course Challenges, an Obstacle Course Challenge for our shelter staff kiddos and a Pie Eating Contest.

You can watch this year’s live-streamed Duck Race event on any of the channels listed below. Simply click the clinks below to watch a recording of this year's Duck Race.

About NHS: Nevada Humane Society (NHS) is a charitable, non-profit organization founded in 1932. In 2007, NHS became a no-kill shelter and launched a bold effort to help Washoe County become a no-kill community. In 2014, NHS expanded lifesaving efforts to include Carson City. Today, more than 100,000 animals have been placed into loving homes since 2007 and NHS continues to grow, maintaining its status as one of the top communities in the country for saving homeless pets. Working in partnership with Washoe County Regional Animal Services and a network of rescue organizations, NHS has put Washoe County in the very top tier of communities nationwide for saving homeless pets.

NHS provides shelter and care to homeless pets, low-cost spay/neuter and vaccines, pet adoption and other services for the community. NHS is not affiliated with, nor do we receive animal welfare funds from, any other agency, including Washoe County Regional Animal Services and the Humane Society of the US.
