Las Vegas – To support young students as they learn to read, as well as animals in our community in need of forever homes, G.C. Garcia, Inc. is partnering with Spread the Word Nevada and Heaven Can Wait Animal Society to host a virtual “Reading to Rescued Dogs” books and pet supplies donation drive. The charitable effort is tied to a virtual reading event G.C. Garcia will hold with local elementary schools during Nevada Reading Week in March.
The drive, which will be held from Feb. 15 to March 15, will collect Pre-K thru 5th grade books for Spread the Word Nevada and much needed pet supplies for Heaven Can Wait Sanctuary. The public can make a virtual donation to either nonprofit or drop off supplies at designated sites. There is also an option to donate funds that will go directly to the charities of choice. Information on supporting elementary students with books or shelter animals with pet supplies can be found online at G.C. Garcia’s website, www.gcgarciainc.com/donation-drive.
On March 4, during Nevada Reading Week, first graders from two local elementary schools will practice their reading skills via Google Classroom in front of a “panel” of “Pups on Parole” dogs from Heaven Can Wait. Reading to pets is a great, non-threatening way for children to feel comfortable and gain confidence in their reading capabilities. Foster parents and Heaven Can Wait staff will be on the panel with each dog.

About Heaven Can Wait Animal Society
Heaven Can Wait Animal Society was founded in 2000 with one goal: to end euthanasia, and ensure every animal had the chance to live their life in a loving home. By focusing on the critical need for accessible, high-quality spay & neuter surgeries, as well as lifesaving vaccinations, adoptions, foster, and educational programming, Heaven Can Wait has served over 150,000 animals and saved many more from the risk of euthanasia.
The heavily subsidized, essential veterinary care Heaven Can Wait provides to Las Vegas’s most vulnerable animals keeps pets & community cats healthier and happier. It also drastically reduces the burden on our local shelters and rescues through controlling our pet population, resulting in a sharp decline in the need for euthanasia. As a nonprofit organization, Heaven Can Wait is generously supported by individuals and community partners who are passionate about our lifesaving clinic and programs.
