Heaven Can Wait Animal Society was founded in 2000 with one goal: to end euthanasia, and ensure every animal had the chance to live their life in a loving home. By focusing on the critical need for accessible, high-quality spay & neuter surgeries, as well as lifesaving vaccinations, adoptions, foster, and educational programming, Heaven Can Wait has served over 160,000 animals and have kept over half a million dogs and cats off streets and out of shelters. The heavily subsidized, essential veterinary care Heaven Can Wait provides to Las Vegas’s most vulnerable animals keeps pets & community cats healthier and happier. It also drastically reduces the burden on our local shelters and rescues through controlling our pet population, resulting in a sharp decline in the need for euthanasia. As a nonprofit organization, Heaven Can Wait is generously supported by individuals and community partners who are passionate about our lifesaving clinic and programs.
