Nevada SPCA hold 80's fundraising brunch

We all have a soft spot for any and all of the pet rescues in Southern Nevada, because many of us have adopted from them, and/or donated to them. Here’s a chance to do that, and have a gnarly time doing it!

The Nevada SPCA wants you to dust off the leg warmers and get ready to celebrate 40 years of saving the lives of homeless animals in Southern Nevada. Founded in 1982, Nevada SPCA will celebrate with a totally tubular ’80s-themed brunch party inside Veil Pavilion at the Silverton Hotel & Casino on Saturday, August 20th, 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. 

Nevada SPCA’s Brunch Bash: ‘80s Edition will be a blast from the past where guests can boogie down to a live band playing 80’s hits,  and play some vintage arcade games. Guests can bid on various silent auction items ranging from show tickets to high-end jewelry, and much more! The brunch will feature a bottomless “Meow”mosa Mimosa and “Hair of the Dog” Bloody Mary bar, along with host of delectable dishes with vegan options also available. Guests are encouraged to wear their best ‘80’s attire!

“We can’t wait for this party! It will be a fun way to capture the spirit of the eighties and commemorate the start of Nevada SPCA. We hope it will be a memorable event for our guests as it helps us raise additional funds needed to support even more animals. Our shelter is growing very rapidly and we continue to rely on the support and generosity of our wonderful community,” said Lori Heeren, Nevada SPCA Executive Director.

Individual tickets are available for $100 and can be purchased online by visting: or if you’d like to purchase a full table for ten guests please email:

All proceeds from this event will support the care of homeless pets at Nevada SPCA.

It’s going to be mega radical!

And here’s where you and your pet can dine together in Las Vegas

9 Dog-Friendly Restaurants In Las Vegas

Las Vegas is full of expensive break-the-bank restaurants, mom and pop shops and small local eateries. Being a pet owner, the question that always comes up is, “Can I bring my dog?” Finding a restaurant that not only seats people but our furry companions can be troublesome. Vegas, Henderson and the other surrounding cities are very pet friendly with dog oriented parks and pet businesses catered just for dog owners.

As cliche as it sounds, “Dog is man’s best friend” first said by Frederick, King of Prussia, is actually true. Pets can’t speak human but they know what we are saying when we communicate to them. They are an essential part of the family as if they were a brother, sister, cousin or uncle. For a lot of us, our pets are the first thing we see in the morning and the first ones to welcome us home from a long day of work.

We take care of our dogs as if they were a baby. We feed them, wash them, take them for a “w-a-l-k”, cuddle them and make sure they are up to date on all of their shots. It’s our responsibility as a dog owner to provide the best life that we can give to our pets. After all, pets give us something that is so valuable it’s priceless. What is it you ask? Their unconditional love.

We scoured the internet looking for dog friendly restaurants and cafes that welcome our furry four-legged friends with open arms. We can report back knowing that we have found nine locations with great staff and great plate options. The best part is that most to all of them have outdoor seating or an open patio. Bring your doggo’s water bowl as many of the restaurants will fill it with water. We hope you and your dog enjoy the best lunch ever.
