Vaccination Clinics

Heaven Can Wait Animal Society offers residents of Clark County, NV FREE traveling vaccination clinics. We work closely with animal control officers, who help us to identify the various areas from which our shelter animals originate. We then target these areas, by providing free vaccinations, wellness checks, and (if needed) free spay and neuter vouchers. These vaccination clinics are conducted in English and Spanish.
The operation of these clinics is costly and can run at a rate of $10K per clinic. Your support is needed more than ever to help save lives and to continue to offer this program. It’s just that important! 

Pups on Parole

Being sent to prison is usually not the ideal way to begin a wonderful new life. However, for the dogs rescued by Heaven Can Wait Animal Society, it is the start of an extraordinary experience. The Pups on Parole program is the beginning of a second chance for dogs to find a family to call their own.
Residents from the Florence McClure Women’s Correctional Facility provide rehabilitation and training to dogs which are rescued by Heaven Can Wait Animal Society volunteers. The program is designed to save “last day dogs” from the shelter and owner turn-ins. Pups On Parole has changed the lives of many homeless dogs.
Some of the dogs which enter the program have lost their trust in people. They have been traumatized and abused. At the prison, they are given time to heal and re-gain their confidence in humans. The dogs are assigned to a team of inmates and they live alongside these women the entire time they are at the prison. The residents socialize the dogs and get them ready to live with a family of their own. During their time at the facility, each dog learns to walk on a leash, is housebroken, and learns basic commands, all the while building a stronger faith in humans

Pawsitively Seniors

Pawsitively Seniors is a cat-companion program for cats and seniors on a fixed income. The program was created by two groups coming together — Heaven Can Wait Animal Society and Nevada HAND.
Unfortunately, there are cats who have been previously adopted but later are abandoned or returned to a shelter. These shelters contact us and ask if we have cats that we would like to place into this program. We often do have senior cats available and this program becomes a life-saver for the cat and often the seniors.
Pawsitively Seniors interviews and places a senior cat with a senior living in a Nevada HAND housing property. Many of these seniors have a strong desire for companionship, and many have owned pets in the past. Owning a pet on a fixed income makes taking care of the pet’s needs difficult, which makes this program a perfect fit.
The Heaven Can Wait Animal Society Cat Coordinator conducts interviews to help find the perfect match between a senior’s lifestyle and the personality of an older cat.  Once the cat is placed with the senior, the cat coordinator and a volunteer visit frequently to check on the health of the cat, and also to trim nails, and to bring food and litter. This is all free of cost to the seniors in the program.
