At 8-years-old, Jayleigh Swift is already hard at work helping homeless animals.   The third grade student handmade 50 blankets to keep the cats that come to the Heaven Can Wait clinic feel cozy and comfortable while they recover from spay and neuter surgeries.

Jayleigh’s proud grandmother, Karyl, explained that her granddaughter earned money to buy the fleece for the blankets from her allowance and she used reward money for getting a straight A report card to buy dog food.  “We need to take it to them, they need it,” Jayleigh told her grandmother.

In addition, Jayleigh gave a speech to her classmates at Explore Knowledge Academy about homeless pets.  Later the school decided to hold a dance that raised funds for Heaven Can Wait Animal Society.

Jayleigh and her family recently had the opportunity to tour the spay/ neuter clinic.  They got a firsthand look at how the blankets are being put to use.  Harold Vosko, Heaven Can Wait’s president, thanked Jayleigh for her generosity and congratulated her on a job well done.  We hope Jayleigh never stops helping homeless animals and that one day her dream to become a veterinarian comes true.

Heaven Can Wait Animal Society needs your help TODAY to save homeless cats and dogs.  Through our aggressive and targeted spay and neuter programs, we believe there will soon be Zero homeless pets euthanized in Southern Nevada.
