Meow! My name is Steve-O
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Brown Tabby||Age:||Adult|
I am already neutered, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, not good with dogs, and good with cats.
Hello! My name is Steve-O and I was rescued from a travel trailer with 70 cats inside. I love other cats! In fact, I need other cats around in order to feel ok. I am a special needs boy, and special in most regards. I am blind in one eye, I walk kind of funny, and I am terrified of the vaccuum cleaner. I am very shy around people to start (I hadn't really interacted with humans until we were taken out of the trailer). I am much more at ease around my long time friend Bubbers (who I look just like, and who in fact may be my mom or my sister) and I would love to stay with her. Is anything more rewarding than working with a special boy like me though? Plus, I would be a wonderful friend to your cat or cats. I am looking for a patient home that can really take the time to get to know me and my needs.
If you would like to meet me, please visit the PETsMART Adoption Center at 7050 Arroyo Crossing Parkway (Rainbow & I215) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you do not think I would be a good fit for your home, please consider sponsoring me as I may be a long term foster due to my special needs and my shyness.
Rescue Group Info...
Eliminate the senseless killing of over 30,000 cats and dogs annually in the Las Vegas area shelters.
• Initiate aggressive spay/neuter programs to prevent unwanted litters of cats and dogs in targeted neighborhoods.
• Lead a local coalition effort resulting in effective humane animal laws with strict penalties for non-compliance.
• Educate our community on principles of responsible pet ownership.
• Rescue, rehabilitate and place homeless animals.
Heaven Can Wait Sanctuary does not yet have a facility. Because of this, we can only take in as many dogs and cats as we have space for in foster homes. We are in need of expanding our foster network so we can save more animals' lives. If you are able to be a temporary parent to these homeless babies, please call HCWS today at 227-5555
Over 1000 cats and dogs are adopted to new families annually through HCWS' partnership with area PETsMART stores.
Heaven Can Wait Sanctuary adoption center for CATS is located at the Rainbow & I-215 PETsMART store. Stay tuned! You never know when we may be at a PETsMART near you!
HCWS holds DOG adoptions every Saturday at PETsMART on S. Rainbow and the 215 from 10:00am to 5:00pm
HCWS's Feral Cat Clinic is now a monthly event with huge success! We have spayed and neutered over 4700 cats to date, who were then released back to their outdoor homes. This successful event to help reduce the overpopulation of feral cats in the Las Vegas valley was only possible due to the cooperation of many of Las Vegas' animal welfare groups and individuals who care for feral cat colonies in our valley. Heaven Can Wait would like to send out special thanks to the veterinarians who donate their time and professional skills, as well as PETsMART Charities who granted us $10,000 for the program. This is a massive effort to help reduce the overpopulation of feral cats in our city. Please check back to find out about future updates. To volunteer for future dates, please call HCWS at 702-227-5555.

Las Vegas will soon be home to one of newest concepts in Animal Sanctuaries: Heaven Can Wait. HCWS is a non-profit organization that will house over 200 dogs and 100 cats who are adoptable, but did not find homes at area shelters. It will be a state of the art facility set in a lush fifteen acre park. There will be no time limit on how long a pet can stay with us, and everything we do during their stay will focus solely on preparing the animals for a life with a human family of their own. The sanctuary will contain condominiums resembling real houses for the pets to stay in, complete with furniture, doors, windows, and a backyard for playing. We will also house a park/school for the dogs, where they will be able to exercise freely, and will also be trained to exhibit proper manners for their new owner. To ensure the health of the pets, our facility will also contain a veterinary clinic that will be open to the public. Here the pets will be able to keep up with their shots, and will be properly bathed and groomed. Our main building will have a special center for adoptions with easy access computers, and a training center for people who want to learn about animal care and obedience. Heaven Can Wait will be a sanctuary for everyone in Las Vegas!
