Affordable Veterinary Care in Las Vegas
According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, there are an estimated 91,250 dogs and 76,000 cats that reside in Las Vegas, Nevada. Most pet owners want to do the right thing, providing necessary medical care to their beloved family members. Unfortunately, the costs for veterinary services have risen 10% between 2015 and 2018 (according to the Nationwide/Purdue University Price Index), and many pet owners now lack the ability to care for their animals.
Now consider the following facts:
- Las Vegas has a poverty rate of approximately 12.9 and is the seventh-highest rate of homelessness in the country. Many people live on fixed incomes.
- Our local shelter, The Animal Foundation, is the largest open-admission shelter in the country with the highest intake in the nation (18,140 dogs and 8,160 cats in 2018). A significant proportion of these pets are due to the family’s inability to access affordable veterinary care.
No pet should ever suffer because of their owner’s inability to afford treatment, and no pet owner should ever have to say goodbye to their beloved family member for financial reasons.
Helping the Great People and Pets of Clark County
Hearts Alive Village is seeking community support for our full-service veterinary clinic to provide lifesaving services to the families and pets who need it the most. These families love their pets and want nothing more than to take care of them - if only they could afford the needed care. Hearts Alive Village will help them with your support.
While our prices will be affordable for most, there will still be families that are unable to pay anything at all. They will not be turned away.
We have created a Village Fund, supported 100% by community donations, to cover these expenses. Furthermore, your donation of equipment and treatment supplies on this site will greatly help us offset the costs of helping these struggling families.
