Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animal-Related, Animals

Mission: ARP's mission is to stop the senseless euthanization of homeless pets. We strive to provide for animals from uncertainty, by rescuing them from "kill" shelters, abandonment, economic turmoil, or simply - from people who "don't want them anymore." By providing love, medical care, sterilization and adoption of "recycled" pets we impact the pet over population by decreasing the deaths of unwanted pets by spaying & neutering all dogs before adoption, even foster if health permits.

Results: Since our inception as a group of private citizens trying to change the animal shelter "timed out" practice, through our weekly weekend adoption events, we have rehabilitated 15,000 animals into new homes. We have grown to be one of southern Nevadas largest animal rescue organizations with a housing facility and a no kill sanctuary ranch for retiring or "impressionable" dogs. Annually we now average 1,000 adoptions. We are one of the largest second chance options for dogs hitting death row in neighboring California's "high desert region" and locally owner relinquishment.

Target demographics: Dogs facing uncertainty is who we help.

Direct beneficiaries per year: annually we strive to assist over 1,000 homeless pets. Since inception we have helped over 15,000 animals!

Geographic areas served: Animal Welfare for dogs & animals in need of Rescue

Programs: Adopt A Rescue Pet is passionate about animal welfare, all dogs, all ages, all breeds are welcome in our programs. We provide medical care, sterilization, safe housing, nutrition and the opportunity for a new home to be found - with no expiration on how long it takes. We have an active boarding facility and a private no kill sanctuary ranch setting.

This group goes above and beyond the ordinary call of duty to find loving, forever homes for rescue dogs, to provide each dog with love, and safe harbor while they wait for their perfect home, and stays committed to each dog's well-being even after adoption.

This dog rescue group is the best! We have adopted 4 dogs over the past 15 years and also foster dogs for the group. They have saved thousands of doggie lives and work hard to ensure every dog finds the right home. Their volunteers give lots of time and effort everyday to make a difference in the lives of these helpless dogs.

I've worked with Adopt a Rescue Pet for four years. Their programs are so dedicated to the animals they save. Many volunteers have been with them for years--some more than 10 years. They really care about the dogs they rescue--and the fosters are fantastic!! All are dedicated!!

About two years ago, I saw a dog on facebook that was about to be killed. His eyes just spoke to me...I put out a call to rescues to help me get him out alive, and Adopt a Rescue Pet not only contacted me immediately, but helped me to do the things I needed to do to help him stay alive. And then, one of their wonderful volunteers arranged for him to be rescued by Adopt a Rescue Pet. The little boy, who I named "Mr. Muggs"(AKA Henry) was transported from Orange County CA to Las Vegas where he found his forever home. This rescue is wonderful to work with, and cares deeply about each and every animal they rescue. I just love it that they take dogs of all kinds, all sizes, and mostly...they step up and take ones who are in immediate danger of being euthanized.

I adopted my dog from ARP. Everyone was really great. I had communicated to ARP that I would be coming to look at a specific dog. When I arrived, everyone was great, and got the dog I was interested in so we could do a "meet and great" with my other dog. We ended up adopting her, and I love her to pieces. Because of how great this rescue is, I now volunteer with them whenever I can. Thanks ARP!

From the moment I stepped into Petsmart to purchase kitty litter and walked out adopting a puppy. I've been a fan and supporter and a volunteer of this great group for two years now and have seen the constant care for animals and the relentless work of volunteers working to find these homeless animals their Furever homes. I've been a foster for many of these babies and will continue to do so. It amazes me that Naomi, our faithful leader does this 24/7-365. She's genuine in her love and care for these animals. I'm proud to be a part of this group that makes a difference.

I love ADOPT A RESCUE PET. I have never met a more dedicated group of people. My family (more than one household) and I have adopted nearly 10 dogs from them over the years. ARP is a wonderful organization that truly has been a blessing in my life. When you adopt, foster, or volunteer you become a family member. I would like to say thank you for everything you do for our community.

As a law student with the William S. Boyd School of law at UNLV we are required to perform a certain number of community service hours. I am so fortunate to have found Adopt a Rescue Pet and perform many hours of community service for school with this wonderful organization. Through the years I have seen the blood, sweat, and tears that everyone in this organization puts into rescuing animals in our community and working hard to find them loving, forever homes. I have volunteered with several animal welfare organizations throughout my time in Las Vegas, and this one truly seems to only have the best interest of the animals at heart. The Las Vegas community is so fortunate to have Adopt a Rescue Pet in our backyard and I am so thankful for the opportunity to volunteer with this organization.
