Las Vegas NV is a transient city so the problem of too many homeless animals has always been an issue. But, now with 10% unemployment and one of the highest home foreclosures rates in the nation, the suffering of abandoned pets has reached a crisis level

Thanks Cher:

The clinic is currently being built in a local shopping center and the group plans to open in June 2009. Supporters have been very generous by donating building supplies and their time for architectural designs, electrical services, painting and more.

Now to cover the final costs to complete the clinic and pay for medical equipment, a public concert has been planned. On Saturday, May 2nd, HCWS will host a benefit concert called Gimme Shelter. The fun-filled evening will feature the tribute band “Jumpin Jack Flash”, a 450 ft. movie screen, street vendors and will be held around beautiful Lake Las Vegas.

If you live in Las Vegas, or plan to visit please support homeless animals and help HCWS stop pet overpopulation once and for all. Sometimes even in the toughest of times, organizations have to make the difficult decision to move forward, especially when the lives of animals are at stake.
