HEARTS ALIVE VILLAGE ANIMAL RESCUE UPDATE

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 info@heartsalivevillage.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.

Bruno Mars Pledges $1 Million to MGM Resorts Foundation

BRUNO MARS PLEDGES $1 MILLION TO THE MGM RESORTS FOUNDATION FOR MGM EMPLOYEE EMERGENCY GRANT FUND & CHILDREN’S MEDICAL SUPPORT FUND

 

GRAMMY Award-winning entertainer Bruno Mars, who has been a performer at the Park MGM theater, announced today that he has donated $1 million to the MGM Resorts Foundation to support MGM employees impacted economically by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

 

Mars has performed a series of limited dates at The Park Theater at Park MGM in Las Vegas since 2016.

 

A representative for Mars says, “The people at MGM have given Bruno Mars the rare opportunity to be able to continuously gig while he’s in the creative process of working on his next album. With the closures across Las Vegas, Bruno wanted to show his appreciation to the amazing employees who help make these shows possible in hopes that we’ll all be out of this situation and having fun together again very soon.”

 

The money will go toward The MGM Resorts Foundation’s Employee Emergency Grant Fund & Children’s Medical Support Fund, which is designed to help MGM employees and their immediate families with short-term assistance during unexpected hardships and emergencies. The Grant Fund may also provide disaster relief assistance to furloughed or laid-off employees whose compensation is suspended or employment terminated as a result of an extraordinary event (or events) that severely impacts a community in which MGM Resorts conducts business, such as the COVID-19 public health crisis. 

 

“We consider Bruno Mars as part of the MGM family and appreciate what he is doing to help our employees and their families during these uncertain times,” said Bill Hornbuckle, Acting CEO and President of MGM Resorts International. “We recently expanded the eligibility requirements for the fund to help as many employees as we can who are impacted by the crisis, and this donation will help us expand our reach even further.”

UNLV MEN’S BASKETBALL NEWS: Hamilton Earns NABC All-District Honors

BRYCE HAMILTON EARNS NABC ALL-DISTRICT HONORS


UNLV men’s basketball sophomore guard named to District 17’s second team

UNLV sophomore guard Bryce Hamilton has earned 2019-20 National Association of Basketball Coaches’ (NABC) All-District 17 second team honors, the organization announced Monday.

 

Hamilton, who led the Runnin’ Rebels to a second-place finish in the Mountain West this season as the team tallied 12 conference victories for the first time in 12 seasons, was one of 10 players in his district to earn recognition. The all-district teams were selected and voted on by member coaches of the NABC in NCAA Division I.

 

District 17’s first team included UNR’s Jalen Harris, San Diego State’s Malachi Flynn, Utah State’s Sam Merrill, San Diego State’s Yanni Wetzel and Colorado State’s Nico Carvacho, while the second team was made up of Hamilton, Boise State’s Justinian Jessup and Derrick Alson Jr., San Diego State’s Matt Mitchell and Utah State’s Neemias Queta. San Diego State’s Brian Dutcher earned the District 17 Coach of the Year award.

 

Hamilton was UNLV’s first first-team All-Mountain West honoree since 2013 and averaged a team-high 16.0 points per game for UNLV during the 2019-20 season, playing in all 32 games and starting 14. He shot 45.3 percent from the field and averaged 5.5 rebounds and 1.4 assists per contest. In conference action, he was second in the league in scoring with 20.9 ppg and was second on the team in rebounding at 6.7 rpg, starting 11 of UNLV’s 18 league contests. He became the first Runnin’ Rebel to average at least 20 ppg in conference play in nine years.

 

Hamilton scored in double figures in 24 games overall, including each of his last 19 contests, scored a career-high 35 points vs. New Mexico on Jan. 18 and tallied at least 20 points in 10 games (eight of his last 13 contests). He was named the league’s Player of the Week on two occasions.

 

Hamilton was also named to the U.S. Basketball Writers Association’s All-District VIII team earlier this month.
