Each year, more than five million pets enter animal shelters in need of loving homes. Heaven Can Wait Animal Society is proud to partner with PetSmart Charities® to bring adoptable pets to North Las Vegas’s Fifth Street PetSmart location in support of National Adoption Week, taking place July 11–17, 2022.
National Adoption Week coincides with kitten season. It’s a time following peak breeding activity for cats, and many shelters are flooded with scores of kittens in need of loving homes. Many shelters invite volunteers to come and bottle-feed kittens to learn about the joys of parenting cats.
During the in-store event, Heaven Can Wait Animal Society invites potential pet parents to meet adoptable pets in their area. Opportunities will be given to spend time with animals in need of loving homes in a spacious area. Staff and volunteers will help potential adopters learn about caring for a pet and the types of tools, products and services they may need.
“Our partnership with PetSmart Charities has been very beneficial to our mission,” said Kelly Sheehan, Heaven Can Wait’s Community Engagement Manager. “Their gifts and opportunities have helped us provide low-cost spay, neuter, and vaccination services to the families that need it the most, and they have also been there for us in our efforts in finding loving homes for our very deserving Pups on Parole.”
Heaven Can Wait’s Pups on Parole Program currently has several dogs in a local women’s correctional facility being trained by their inmate companions, not just learning how to behave, but learning to trust. To view all available pets for adoption, please visit Heaven Can Wait’s Adoptable Dogs page at heavencanwaitlv.org/adoptable-dogs. You can also apply to adopt on the site by filling out an application for the Pup on Parole you are interested in adding to your family.
“National Adoption Week is an ideal opportunity to give a pet what they need most – people to love,” said Heidi Fulcher, Adoptions Grant Manager at PetSmart Charities. “Over the years, together with local partners such as Heaven Can Wait Animal Society we’ve matched more than 10 million pets with loving homes. Globally, people say their pets are important family members that enhance their lives, too. That’s a win-win!”
Cinnamon, one of Heaven Can Wait’s Pups on Parole, is still looking for her forever home. When she came to Heaven Can Wait Animal Society, she was fearful and anxious; after spending time in our Pups on Parole program, her personality has begun to shine! She gets along well with other dogs and is looking for a family that will provide the love and trust she deserves.
