MAKING LAS VEGAS A BETTER PLACE TO LIVE
Charlie's Angels finds homes for more than one hundred pets
Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Hundreds of dogs and cats are Home for the Holidays. They were just adopted by MGM employees. And it didn't cost them a penny. The President and COO of MGM Grand and some of his executive buddies are footing the bill. They are making Las Vegas a better place to live for a whole lot of animals.
Hundreds of MGM employees showed up at this Charlie's Angels event looking for a four-legged family member. President and COO of the MGM Scott Sibella found his dog Charlie from the animal shelter a few years ago. Scott says, "What he's done to our family is incredible. He brought us togeher. He goes everywhere with me. I wanted to bring this back to other people."
So Scott, who calls this event Charlie's angels after his dog, Charlie, hosts the event at the MGM Grand. The animals are brought in. Employees are invited to meet them. And Scott foots the adoption bills making it easier for people and pets to unite.
Scott says, "They send me pics every year and kind notes of the gratitutde of bringing this dog into their home. It's overwhelming."
It's overwhelming to the animal foundation's staff and volunteers too. They know the need better than any of us.
Christine Robinson with the Animal Foundation
says, "The anmial foundation recieves 50-thousand animals a year. So to be able to take 150 dogs and 50 cats and get them adopted in a single day is almost unheard of. It's difficult to express what a big deal this really is."
