We thank everyone for helping us save lives. Please show your support. Thank you.

I am from Las Vegas and I am representing a small group of philanthropists who are trying to make a difference by paying it forward. Like the rest of the country, the economical situation has hit the residents particular hard here. There is no room in any of the local homeless shelters and many people are being forced out of their homes everyday.

We have spoken to many of these broken hearted lost souls who not only have to deal with the enormity of their situations, it is compounded by the sad truth that a very large percent of them had to give up their long time companions and bestfriends, their pets.

What an absolute tragedy to see and hear the pain in these peoples voices and in their hearts, particularly when mentioning the loss of their beloved pet and the horrible thought of what fate they might have suffered due to there owners failed attempts at keeping financially afloat.

We researched the statistics with our local Animal Shelter and learned that the average euthanization here in Las Vegas is at a staggering 300+ lost cats and dogs everyday.

We are trying to raise enough funding to open a new "rescue" of sorts for not only the homeless but there loyal friends and companions, because for most of these people, their pets were the only thing giving their owners the strength to continue to fight to try to get back on their feet.

Las Vegas as a city has tried to hide and sweep the homeless out of the view of all the tourists. They have gone as far as passing a law making it illegal to assist any homeless by providing food and drinks, violating this law will result in a $1000 fine.
