TAKE ME HOME: Shelters, rescue groups seek forever homes for animals, Sept. 25

Nevada SPCA
You cannot find a more devoted companion than me. I will greet you at the front door every day and then remain by your side to keep you company. My name is Katie, and I am a friendly, beautiful young gray shorthair feline, spayed, about 18 months of age. I enjoy other cats and love toys with strings on them. Please adopt me and let me give you all of my adoration.
The Nevada SPCA is a no-kill animal sanctuary at 4800 W. Dewey Drive, Las Vegas. For more information, visit nevadaspca.org or call 873-7722.


The Animal Foundation
Hello, there! My name is Mozart (ID No. A668027), and I have been at the shelter since Sept. 2. I’m 1 year and 1 month old and have already been neutered so you can take me home today. I am a very caring dog and love to play around. I love other animals and people. I may not look like your average poodle, but I make up for it with my fantastic disposition. Please come and see me soon.
Adoption hours are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily at 655 N. Mojave Road, Las Vegas. For more information, visit animalfoundation.com or email adoptions@

Las Vegas Valley Humane Society
Hi, I’m Trixie, a healthy 10-year-old lilac point Siamese mix. I’m looking for a new home because my previous owner became too ill to care for me. I’m very sweet and would make a great companion for someone who is looking for a cat to keep them company. I was raised with my two brothers, so I get along with other cats. I’m spayed, vaccinated, feline leukemia-tested and microchipped.
The Las Vegas Valley Humane Society rescues and rehabilitates homeless animals. For more information, call 434-2009 or visit lvvhumane.org.

Happy Home Animal Sanctuary
Hi, my name is Clarabelle, and as you can see, I am a gorgeous tortoiseshell girl. I am super sweet, and I get along with kids and dogs. Did I mention I love to be brushed?
For more information, call 203-4134 or 768-4078 or visit happyhomeanimalsanctuary.org.

Movie posters might soon be based on your clicks

You may have thought you left Blockbuster behind, but the basic way we browse movies hasn’t changed all that much. We peruse poster after poster, kind of like walking the aisles of a ‘90s-era video store. That one poster image, meant to appeal to as many people as possible, is often all we see before […]
