Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Heaven Can Wait is located in Akron, OH. We rescue only from the Summit County Animal Control Facility. We serve the greater Summit County area.

About Our Rescue Group:

Heaven Can Wait is a non-profit, 501(c)3, all volunteer, rescue group located in Akron, Ohio. We rescue dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens from the high-kill Summit County Animal Control Facility (also known as the pound), most on the day they are going to be euthanized. Heaven Can Wait is the ONLY rescue group that ONLY rescues from the Summit County Animal Control Facility. We devote our rescuing to the most destitute, who have no chance of living beyond the day they are going to be euthanized. While Heaven Can Wait cannot save all the animals from certain death at the pound, we try to make a difference, one animal at a time.

We do not "re-home" pets from private individuals ... we RESCUE animals from DEATH at the pound!

The rescued dogs are examined by a Veterinarian, heartworm tested, spayed or neutered, vaccinated for Rabies, vaccinated for canine distemper, canine hepatitis, parainfluenza, parvovirus and adenovirus type 2, started on heartworm prevention medication, worm treatment and flea treatment.

Rescued cats are examined by a Veterinarian, tested for Feline Leukimia/FIV, spayed or neutered, vaccinated for Leukemia, vaccinated for feline rhinotracheitis, calici virus, panleukopenia and chlamydia, worm treatment and flea treatment.

ALL rescued animals are quarantined for 14 days to monitor it's health. No animal will be available until after the quarantine period.

When a rescued animal is sick, Heaven Can Wait provides Veterinary care and any medicine or treatment necessary to bring it back to optimal health. Many times, this has required surgery and/or hospitalization.

Heaven Can Wait has all volunteers. Your tax-deductible donations make it possible for Heaven Can Wait to rescue animals from death at the pound and get them the necessary Veterinary care. Please consider donating today.

Each and every rescued pet is fostered in a loving environment until it is permanently placed in it's forever home.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
