We Are WendRover

Located in the rural community of West Wendover, Nevada, and founded in 2018, Wendrover Pet Connection is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, caring for and transporting dogs and cats who have found their way into West Wendover Animal Control, and have no other option at a second chance of life. The focus is to provide adoption services, critical transportation efforts, educational resources, and medical assistance for homeless pets as well as owned pets.

The human population of West Wendover, Nevada is estimated at 4,500, with a poverty rate at 24% (U.S. Census Report). The area is very transient, with 55% of the population renting, which does lead to pets being left behind.

WendRover Pet Connection currently pulls dogs and cats from West Wendover Animal Control, and before being founded, most brought in would wait their stray holding period and then were euthanized due to lack of space and/or other options.

 WendRover Pet Connection relies entirely on donations to cover expenses. We are not funded by any agency or government entity. An alarming fact is that no other pet-related services are available within a 120-mile radius of West Wendover, Nevada, and, because of this, WendRover strives to provide medical assistance to pet owners. Most residents simply have to work, have no reliable transportation, and can’t spend an entire day on the road for necessary vaccinations and other needed medical treatment for their pets.

WendRover Pet Connection is not a physical shelter and relies heavily on transporting dogs and cats out of the area, and this is why there is a critical need for immediate funding for the purchase of a vehicle for this purpose.
