Pet Adoptions - Hike for Hounds



Raise money for pet rescue
& have fun!

Our community involvement is imperative to our mission - from hosting Hike for Hounds which has raised over $30,000 for pet rescue to hosting adoptions every May at our Mutts in May that has found homes for over 100 dogs & cats.  We also donate a portion of our food to local pet rescue as well as provide pet food for Mt Rose Ski Dogs to ensure they have ample energy to save lives on the mountain.


Come by & fall in love with your new family member. We will host several adoption groups each Saturday from 10 am to 1pm.  Whether you want small or large OR fuzzy or smooth, we will have every breed for your liking.  Come by and add to your family this May!

Natural Paws is hosting a Holiday Hound Donation Drive this holiday season benefiting several local pet rescue organizations! Natural Paws is doggedly committed to pet rescue and organized the drive due to the lack of fund-raising events this year.  Natural Paws owner, Lori Burks, explains “We usually host a sizable holiday party each year benefiting a local pet rescue but are unable to do so this year. We thought of the holiday hound donation drive to help raise some money and collect much needed supplies without hosting a large crowd.”


Natural Paws will be collecting dog and cat supplies including beds, blankets, cleaning supplies, cat litter, collar & leashes and dog & cat dry & canned food.  Monetary contributions are also desperately needed and appreciated.  Donations will be collected outside of the store next to Raley’s from 10am to 5pm on Saturday, December 19th.


Collect your goods and empty your piggy banks and help Natural Paws save some dogs and cats.  Dogs that contribute will receive a little treat and their people will get a sweet treat too!

Wag it Forward, originating from the widespread Pay it Forward, was designed to spread the wagging happiness of our beloved pooches and aid the community.  The first agenda within the Wag it Forward program involves helping a local Reno family who is struggling to keep their pet(s) due to recent financial difficulties.  Wag it Forward will feed up to seven families pets who are in need due to a recent job loss or illness in the family, or other family crisis.  Natural Paws is currently feeding six families in cooperation with Nutrisource, Lotus, FROMM, and Natures Variety pet foods.  Natural Paws owners, Lori & Rob Burks, state "The Reno community has been so supportive of our store and we want to pay it forward and give back to the community that has given us so much.  We love Reno and are so fortunate we are able to raise our daughter Sophie and grow our business within such a wonderful community.  Now it's our turn to help others."
