How you helpAs with most non-profits, we rely on the help and generosity of volunteers to maintain our operations and achieve our goals. We need those willing to help with many tasks including, but not limited to client education along with check-ins and outs in reception; help with animal recovery, and clinic sterilization at the spay and neuter clinic; and attending some wonderful events with the goal of educating the public and making friends. Your support is needed more than ever as our goal is to serve and help save 1,000 dogs and cats a month!
About usHeaven Can Wait Animal Society, an animal welfare organization, was formed in 2000 by a group of animal lovers with the idea of building a beautiful 20-acre sanctuary to home all of the unwanted animals in our community. After doing their research on how best to support animal welfare, HCW found that animals were being euthanized at an alarmingly high rate in local shelters. It was then that efforts to save animals were refocused away from rescue and toward promoting spay/neuter as the solution to the tragic pet overpopulation problem. HCW is now a leader in the city for high-volume, high-quality, low-cost spay and neuter services for companion animals and community cats. They are a much-needed resource for those who aren't able to afford sterilization services at regular veterinary prices, and for cats without homes to receive medical care that never would have happened without trap-neuter-vaccinate-return programs.
