-- Las Vegas, NV (February 9, 2015) –
Hearts Alive Village is excited to announce their booth at the USA Sevens Tournament, February 13th through 15th at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas.
Hearts Alive Village Las Vegas is a 501(c)3 organization whose mission is to secure loving and stable homes for dogs and cats at risk of being lost in the shelter system. Through a variety of programs such as Kendall's Kupboard, a pet food pantry, and Solutions over Surrenders which gives pet owners access to resources like training, financial assistance, and more, Hearts Alive aims to keep pets in their original homes whenever possible.
The HSBC Sevens World Series is an International Rugby Board sanctioned event which sees top professional rugby players from 16 nations compete for the World Series Title. There are nine tournaments held around the world, including Australia, Dubai, Japan, Scotland, and more. The USA Sevens Rugby tournament is Round 5 of the competition and involves 44 games over 3 days of action. The tournament has been growing in popularity since its first USA stop in Los Angeles, California in 2004, and attendance is expected to increase again in 2015.
Their second year at the games, Hearts Alive Village is honored to be the only animal related group invited to attend the tournament. "There is so much energy and excitement in the air," says founder Christy Stevens, "it's infectious."
The Hearts Alive Village booth will feature fun souvenirs for rugby and animal fans, with all proceeds going to further the rescues' mission. The best part, says Stevens, is the kissing booth. "People come from all over the world to watch these games, and most of them have to leave their pets at home. We offer them a little bit of puppy love. The people love it and the dogs love the attention!"
