HEARTS ALIVE VILLAGE ANIMAL RESCUE UPDATE
Helping our community help our pets during this difficult and ever-changing time
As we approach April tomorrow and the continuation of the coronavirus pandemic and its effects on our pets and shelter pets, we at Hearts Alive Village wanted to share an update for those looking to be heroes during this time.
We remain staffed for business at our pet supply store. However, to further protect our employees, our volunteers, and customers, we will be conducting curbside sales. For interest in an animal, please firstname.lastname@example.org prior to stopping by Hearts Alive Village (1750 South Rainbow Blvd., Suite #4). We can set an appointment and coordinate a meet.
There are many dogs and cats in foster homes who are still available for adoption. We work to keep our website updated with available pets. www.heartsalivevillage.org. We have a reduced number of animals at our adoption center in careful consideration for any emergencies that may arise. Our adoption center is still home for more than a dozen cats and a few dogs still needing to be placed with adopters or fosters, the need remains even though it may be changing with the fluidity of the times and the situation.
We are, like all those around us, endorsing self- isolation for everyone who can do this, it is the safest way to try and get through these troubling times. However, our most vulnerable (pets, elderly, veterans) still need help to get on the other side and we hope that will be sooner than later. The need is greater now than ever for pet food to help those struggling households. We are still engaging volunteers who can deliver food and supplies to those who have pets and cannot get out to get the supplies and food they need or are finding themselves unable to afford such necessary items. If you are finding yourselves with some extra time during this period, please volunteer with us or any other cause that may be close to your heart. There are so many heroes among us, some seen and some doing their work more quietly – we owe a debt of gratitude to all of them and to those who will step up in the coming days.
About Hearts Alive Village
Hearts Alive Village is a non-profit 501(c)(3) located in the heart of Las Vegas, Nevada, founded in 2013 out of an intense need to help save dogs and cats that were losing their lives in an overcrowded shelter system. We provide medical treatment, a safe and comfortable place to heal, and adoption services with a passion for senior pet placement at two centrally located facilities. Our mission is to secure loving and stable homes for dogs and cats at risk of being lost in the shelter system.
Our main objective is to keep animals out of the shelter in the first place by supporting struggling, low-income pet owners. We maintain a pet food bank, offer low cost spay/neuter and other medical services, and help to responsibly re-home, as well as provide educational and training resources. For more information, to make a donation, adopt a pet, or volunteer, please call 702-595-0644, visit HeartsAliveVillage.org or follow on Instagram @heartsaliveanimalrescue.
