The heat is rising around the Las Vegas Valley, making the pavement and roads dangerous to both humans and animals. Understanding this unique need, Las Vegas Rescue Mission (LVRM), a nonprofit that provides aid to the homeless and hurting members of the southern Nevada community, is teaming up with Urban Underdogs Corp., a non-profit organization created to help animals in underserved communities in the Las Vegas Valley, to hold a socks and dog paw booties drive for homeless residents and their pets. The drive will run from May 27 until June 14.
Join the drive and and help out by generously donating dog paw booties, or socks for their human companion.
For drop of locations and additional information please visit the “Las Vegas HEALS” website
To hear more about the drive, listen to Heather & Cynthia on a recent “TALKING Solutions” interview.

Have I told you about my best friend?
Every day we meet wonderful people who love their furry family members, and inevitably we all share stories about them. Now, I don’t often share the story about my best friend, but I thought I would take a moment to introduce myself and tell you a little about him.
How to keep your pet safe during the summer:
- Never, ever leave your furry friend in the car.
- Make sure your fur baby has unlimited access to fresh water.
- Make sure your best friend has access to shade when outside.
- Take walks during the cooler hours of the day.
- When walking, try to stay off of hot surfaces (like asphalt) because it can burn your furry pals paws.
