Special Mystery Guest to Attend Holiday Luncheon

Come meet a very special “mystery guest” at the 2nd Annual Holiday Luncheon to benefit Heaven Can Wait Animal Society.  There is still time to get your ticket for the event on Sunday, December 12 at the M Resort.

All year long HCWS saves the lives of cats and dogs that have been abused, neglected and abandoned.  We care for their wounded bodies and try our best to rehabilitate them so they can be adopted into new “forever” homes. 

We bring their stories to you through our blog and newsletters, but guests at the Holiday Luncheon will have the opportunity to meet one of these exceptional animals.  She has been through a heartbreaking experience that nearly cost her life, but this remarkable dog miraculously overcame the tragedy that happened to her.

We look forward to seeing you at the Holiday Luncheon!

Tickets can be purchased online or call 714.812.5803

Tickets:  Individual tickets $85 – Tables of 10 $700

Proceeds benefit the cats and dogs rescued and helped by HCWS.

Bo & DeeMo Inaugural Event

Bo & DeeMo, designers of dog fashion for Bully Breeds, recently held their inaugural event – K9’s walking the catwalk for fashion and charity.   The company has adopted Heaven Can Wait Animal Society  as their charity.   

The red carpet event, held at Bio Tuscan Grille at Town Square, included 17 Bullies-Ambassadors and Lords & Ladies of the Court to King Mugsy and Queen Moxie modeling the Winter, Holiday and Spring fashion line from Bo & DeeMo.  The designs will soon be available in Nevada and California boutiques and online at BoandDeemo.com

Dee Mounts and Brandi Estes both have a love of Bully Breed dogs.  Together they started the clothing line to meet the needs of the strong build and stature of these dogs that make it challenging to find apparel that fits.  The couture line features luxury fabrics.

Dee and Brandi also kept in mind the many homeless pets in the Las Vegas valley and adopted HCWS as their animal rescue group.  Their goal is to donate 10 percent of their net sales.

VIP guests at the fashion show included KSNV Channel 3 Entertainment Reporter, Alicia Jacobs, the X Burlesque girls, the Men of X, and members of the HCWS Board of Directors.  The event was MC’d  by Jacobs and her beloved K9 Sparkles.  Mr. Tyson, the world famous skateboarding dog, Lulu the Frenchie and Lola Belle “Canine Correspondent” were among the K9 VIPs.

Bully Breed dogs include: English-French-American-Boston Bulldogs, Pugs, Boxers, Mastiffs, Bull Terriers and Pitbull Terriers.

Gimme Shelter was a Huge Success!

Jumpin' Jack Flash rocked Lake Las Vegas

Jumpin' Jack Flash rocked Lake Las Vegas

On May 2, 2009, Heaven Can Wait Animal Society partnered with Lake Las Vegas and Monte Lago Village to host our inaugural benefit concert featuring Jumpin’ Jack Flash, a Rolling Stones tribute band that rocked the lake for nearly two hours. The energy of the evening was amazing and we couldn’t have asked for better weather. Hundreds of animal and music lovers partied the night away with a little help from our margarita stations, beer gardens and a variety of vendors who donated a plethora of prizes

All of the proceeds from Gimme Shelter went directly to our low cost, high volume spay and neuter clinic slated to open this summer. The Heaven Can Wait Spay and Neuter Clinic is the first of it’s kind in Las Vegas and will be crucial in bringing down the number of animals euthanized in shelters citywide.

Check out our upcoming events page to see what events are coming up.
