Media Advisory

NHP Troopers, Nevada Air National Guardsmen, and Media Personalities to Volunteer Time at annual “Tips for Pets” benefit for the Nevada Humane Society

The annual “Tips for Pets” fundraiser benefiting the Nevada Humane Society will be taking place tonight at the Claim Jumper restaurant in Reno. This event will be hosted by the Nevada Highway Patrol and will include volunteers from the Nevada Air National Guard and members of our local media outlets.

Each volunteer will be paired up with a staff member that evening and act as their assistant when patrons in their respective sections are served during the four-hour event. As each table is greeted, the volunteer-server will provide a brief explanation about the event and will leave an envelope on the table. The tips collected for the cause are in addition to the normal server’s entitled gratuity. The money collected will stay right here in Reno and will be used to cover spay, neuter, medical and food costs for the animals arriving and residing at the shelter on a daily basis.

In addition to all of the action taking place inside, we will be collecting pet food in the restaurant parking lot. Two of the Nevada Highway Patrol’s K-9s and their handlers are planning on helping out with a meet and greet near the pet food collection point outside.
