Mission:

In ARP, as a non-profit public charity, our goals are to assist rescuers of animals with needed funds to cover medical, boarding, care, and needs of animals which would otherwise be euthanized for lack of service available to them. Additionally, the efforts of this fund raising campaign will support the expansion of our current events while allowing us the funds to lease a facility so that we can house and assist more needy animals 7 days a week, and offer adoptions beyond municipal shelter hours. A place where domestic pets receive care and training, while waiting for their "second chance" adoption into a loving permanent home.

I adopted millie aka girlfriend about 6 months ago. she had been with adopt a rescue pet a long time. it is so difficult to adopt an older dog she is 10 years old. she is a bull terrier like the dog in the target ad. she is so sweet and funny. she can not hear or see very well but she stays very close to me at all times. like so many of these dogs their lives have not been very good but with adopt a rescue pet they have a new lease on life.

We adopted a puppy through ARP two weeks ago. The adoption fee included up-to-date shots, neuter, a bag of dog food, some puppy toys, and discounts on a TON of stuff at PetSmart. Our new puppy, Whiskey, is adorable! He arrived healthy, clean, and full of energy! Adopt-a-Rescue Pet has an in-depth application process, asked a lot of questions about our lifestyle and home, and worked to make sure Whiskey would be a good fit for our family. We weren't able to take Whiskey home right away (we picked him up from the vet 3 days later after he was neutered). As you can imagine, there were tons of admirers on 'adoption day' at PetSmart but once we claimed him, ARP didn't allow anyone else to play with the puppies or get near the cage. I appreciated this more than anything; they protected our puppy and helped ensure his health and safety. I'm very impressed with this organization and will recommend ARP to others!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Better organize the adoption paperwork process at the PetSmart events. It took hours, was unnecessarily chaotic and the volunteers/staff seemed stressed out. I also recommend posting on your website that adoption fees must be paid in cash; we were not prepared and had to leave to go to an ATM and then wait in line again.

ARP is amazing! I needed help with my dog and they were beyond helpful. They found him a loving home that he is doing amazing at! They make sure they aren't just adopting to anyone.. They make sure these dogs get great homes! I have also helped volunteer when I can and the staff takes great pride in these dogs. They show the dogs endless amount of love and belly rubs! I believe this organization is truly amazing and put so much love into getting these dogs new homes!!

Adopt a Rescue Pet is a safe haven for displaced animals across the valley. Their relentless efforts help save the life's of hundreds of homeless dogs each year. I've had the pleasure of volunteering with this wonderful organization and they are a great group of kind hearted people!

I am an adviser of our Animal Club at Cadwallader Middle School. My AC students have enjoyed collecting donations for Adopt A Rescue Pet. We have been able to partner with Marleen and help with animal baskets for raffles and other fundraising opportunities. Marleen has visited our club to speak to our students and we have been able to donate money and dog supplies to ARP through Marleen partnering with our club. Thank you for giving us this opportunity ARP!!

I went on line and found the dog that was perfect. She's approximately 4 years old, a deer Chihuahua and how anyone could have left her is incomprehensible. The staff from Adopt A Rescue Pet at the PetSmart that day were so friendly and kind. It all went perfectly, they gave her a bath and a free medical check up. I will always thank them for finding "Maggie" and thus bringing her into our lives. Please donate when you can, it's Christmas! Happy Holidays. Cathie

I have been a volunteer with Adopt A Rescue Pet for 13 years now, if my family and I didn't believe in them we would have left along time ago. Adopt A Rescue pet goes far beyond a lot of other rescues, they help animals in need all the time, they help out seniors so they don't have to give up their dog and when it's time they help re-home the dog in that time of need. They go out of their way to make sure if someone doesn't have food for their dog they help them out so they don't go without for themselves. They are always working on something and the volunteers are great, starting at age 16 all the way up to 90. It has been a blessing for so many people that have had to re-home there dogs due to loosing their homes and having to down size, helping with that meant that they didn't end up in the local kill shelter ready to be put down. One day they will have the Rescue Ranch that we have been dreaming of, they have the land just need to funds to build, but that will happen someday, but for now we will continue setting up and tearing down each Saturday and Sunday at 2 local PetSmarts until there are none...... Adopt Don't Shop....

Ive been involved with these guys for a few years now and they are the best group of people you can ask for. They dont just throw a dog in your home, they match you with a dog so nothing goes wrong and you dont have to bring him back. Hands down you couldnt ask for a better group.

By far one of the best rescue organizations out there. I started out volunteering and got to meet alot of the amazing people behind this organization. Elizabeth, andy, naoma, and marleen are hands down some of the most dedicated people to the cause that you will ever meet. And all the great pups they have will melt your heart when you see them. Before going to anyone else you definetely need to check these guys out. Donate, volunteer, or anything you can do to help all these wonderful animals before its too late.

Adopt a Rescue Pet is one of the most dedicated dog rescues I have ever seen. The amount of time all of them put into saving dogs is amazing. They take in any breed, any age and dogs with medical conditions knowing they will take care of them until they find their forever home. They are truly a blessing.
