If you're ready to adopt a cat or dog, or thinking of surprising someone for Christmas, check your list to make sure all is in place to welcome a new family member. You, or the person you're giving a pet to, must be in it for the long haul - food, shelter, finances should be thought about before adopting.
Happy Home Animal Sanctuary has many cats and dogs now available for adoptions. Volunteers recently found three beautiful orange kittens abandoned in a box behind a UPS store here in Vegas. People who "dump" their pets obviously have no heart, but thanks to Amber and her volunteers at Happy Home, the good they do outweighs the bad.
Every day, animals all over Southern Nevada are rescued by this group, who save and show compassion to animals who are abandoned, neglected, or abused. Volunteers foster cats or dogs that need special attention, and others are vaccinated, spayed or neutered and given a place of shelter with food and water until adopted out to a forever home.
Adoptions are every Saturday & Sunday from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. at PetSmart, 9869 S. Eastern Ave, in the Target shopping center at Silverado Ranch. 702-951-0045
