To assist teenagers as they leave the Continuum of Care, Boys Town Nevada offers a Transition to Adulthood program that places young men and women in an independent living setting and offers financial relief for the time that they search for employment. Each month, $450 helps transitioning teens afford expenses, including utility bills, food, bus passes, a sheriff's help card, and their apartment complex's safety deposit.
The smile on a once-forlorn animal's face when it's united with new owners can't be matched, as the staff of The Animal Foundation knows well. What was once a tiny spay and neuter clinic when it opened in 1978 has grown into an 8-acre campus that shelters and cares for animals without a home. After a careful vetting process, families seeking four-legged companionship can find it here, relieving Dad from his duties of crawling around the house all day. The clinic still offers low-cost spay and neutering services, as well as vaccinations to prevent rabies and other diseases. Click here to see a list of pets, updated every hour, with new dogs, cats, and critters available for adoption. Potential adopters can narrow down the search by gender, age, and size.
Marc Savard, cofounder of the International Institute of Hypnosis, mystifies audiences of his stage show through a unique blend of comedy and hypnotism. Savard begins his 75-minute interactive performance by bringing volunteer audience members to the stage and using his combined powers of hypnosis, suggestion, and sad puppy-dog faces to seduce subjects into following his comedic whims. Funny bones and laugh ligaments get a full workout as Savard leads his subjects through a series of gags; past bits have included making audience members think their belts are live snakes, having them pose for an "adult" photo shoot, and even having them slow-dance with a mop. For those not brought on stage, the V Theater irrigates thirsty attendees with a full bar and cocktail service, as well as an obliging team of Super Soaker–armed ushers.
