Heaven Can Wait Animal Society, a non-profit 501(c)3 animal humane organization, was formed in 2000 by a group of 5 concerned citizens with the idea of building a beautiful 20 acre sanctuary to house all of the unwanted animals in our community. At the time, though, animals were dying at rate of around 30,000 per year in our local shelters. As we took the time to research how other communities reduced their impound and euthanasia rates, we discovered a common denominator: spay/neuter. Therefore, we decided to refocus the majority of our resources away from rescue and toward promoting spay/neuter as the solution to the tragic pet-overpopulation problem here in Las Vegas. Through our targeted and aggressive spay/neuter programs we prevent thousands of unwanted litters each year.
On June 19, 2009 Heaven Can Wait took a giant leap forward by opening a high-volume/high-quality, low-cost/no-cost spay/neuter clinic near Eastern & 95. This clinic serves as a valuable resource for those who aren’t able to afford sterilization services at regular veterinary prices. Amazingly, over the past 10 years we have spay/neutered 119,000 cats and dogs, the majority of which would have never been sterilized without our help!
