Heaven Can Wait Takes Part In Community Outreach Event

HCWS volunteers let trick-or-treaters know the importance of spaying and neutering their pets at the Harvest Festival.

By Khristi Suarez
Heaven Can Wait volunteers joined several other community organizations in conjunction with the Sierra Sunrise Coalition and Las Vegas Metro Police on October 30 for the Sierra Sunrise Harvest Festival held in the Albertsons parking lot at Lake Mead Parkway and Hollywood Blvd. The festival is a continuation of a community effort to revitalize the North East Las Vegas Valley.

Volunteers from the HCWS Spay & Neuter Clinic were on hand to provide fun treats for human and animal Trick or Treaters, alike, and to distribute literature and special promotional offers for the clinic. It was encouraging to see the excitement of the children when they shared stories about their pets and the joy in having special treats to take home with them.  Volunteers were able to reach out to many families who desire to have their pet spayed/neutered, but either did not know where to go, or were concerned with the cost. They were truly grateful for the information and the opportunity to meet the knowledgeable staff on hand to answer questions and provide information about the procedures.

The Festival was a great success as was confirmed by the wonderful turn out and overwhelming visitor response at our booth. Thanks to our Clinic Coordinator Judy, who organized the booth and decorations, and to all of the volunteers who came out to take part in this wonderful community event to help make it such a success.

HCWS would like to remind everyone that  it is not only the law in Las Vegas to have your pet spayed/neutered, but it is also the single most crucial step in reducing the staggering number of needless deaths of innocent, unwanted animals who, by no fault of their own, end up in shelters each month. Thousands of homeless animals are killed each month here in Nevada due to pet overpopulation; 3-4 million nationwide each year.  The only way to reduce these numbers is to reduce the births. We encourage you to join us in our efforts to end animal suffering, by helping to educate and inform family and friends about the benefits and importance of responsible pet ownership and how this one simple effort now can save the lives of so many later.
