Nevada Humane Society is hosting a Home 4 the Holidays Cupcake Day on Dec. 5. Hundreds of cupcakes in different styles and flavors will be provided by local bakeries and volunteer bakers.

Cupcakes will be available from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the NHS shelter, 2825 Longley Lane in Reno. Visitors can sample and or take some home to share with family and friends for a small donation, which benefits the care of homeless pets.

Santa Paws will be available for photos, too. Whether it’s a dog, cat or other small creature, pets are welcome to sit on Santa’s lap for a photo. Susan Koppel, owner and photographer at Susan Koppel Photography, will be offering digitally retouched images for a $5 donation to NHS.

Nevada Humane Society is open for pet adoptions from 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Sunday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Saturday. For pet adoptions in Reno, visit 2825 Longley Lane. For pet adoptions in Carson City, visit 3770 Butti Way.
