Pet Network is a grass roots organization that was formed to eliminate the suffering of unwanted animals on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe. It began with the efforts of volunteers who brought cats and dogs from the Tahoe Vista Shelter into their homes and cleaned, groomed, and fed them until they were restored to health and ready for adoption. The founders and other volunteers posted flyers of the adoptable animals and eventually printed a newsletter called the Pet Connection. Operating with a few donations, they continued fostering animals, always with the goal of having their own adoption building. In 1991, Pet Network became a corporation. We are supported entirely by donations and/or services to operate as a Nevada non-profit organization recognized by the IRS as tax exempt under section 501(c)3.
