Hearts Alive Village Pet Health and Wellness Fair
Hearts Alive Village Las Vegas is a multidimensional, 501(c)3 organization that goes way beyond its 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. They also provide Humane Education to youth groups throughout the valley, and transitional housing for a domestic abuse survivor."Over 20,000 animals are killed in the Las Vegas valley shelters each year," said Christy Stevens, founder of Hearts Alive Village, "For us, it has to be about more than the rescue."
The adoption center features adoptable cats living in the Cozy Cat Cottage. Adoptable dogs live in foster homes and then spend their days relaxing in their custom Canine Cabanas. The animals all receive affection and attention from volunteers as they wait for potential families to meet and fall in love with them. The discount pet supply store sells NutriSource dog and cat food, new and gently used pet supplies including toys, beds, collars, and treats, pet themed art from local artists, custom cat trees, and more. There are monthly community workshops, craft days for children, micro-chip and shot clinics, and more. All proceeds from the store help support the rescue's life saving programs, and purchases are free of sales tax. "This adoption center and store belongs to all of us," said Stevens. "It is a community space for education, and the celebration of animals and their people."
The Pet Health and Wellness Fair will feature free microchips from West Charleston Animal Clinic, free nail trims, pet photography, raffle prizes, pet safety education provided by a local Boy Scouts troop, information on how to have your dog screened to become a blood donor, and more. Companion animals should be leashed or in carriers.
