Location: 3850 E. Flamingo Pmb 146 Las Vegas NV 89121 USA

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.

This is by far the best rescue organization I've ever been involved in. I volunteer for them as a foster and I've also adopted 2 of my dogs from them. They take in dogs that would definitely be put to sleep because of behavioral problems or because they're just not little "cute" puppies or very cute dogs either. The volunteers who work the adoptions work tirelessly to find these dogs good homes. They're out there in all kinds of weather and always with a smile on their face. I cannot say enough of good things about them. Whenever I have spare money, it goes to them because I'm convinced all of my contributions are put to good use.

Adopt a Rescue pet is one of the premier non-kill shelters in Las Vegas. They cater to all dogs, not just the ones likely to be adopted. Time has shown that if the dog is not a good fit for the home, it likely wont be a forever home. Adopt a Rescue pet makes every effort to fully understand the situation the dog is going into before adoption papers are ever brought out. Because of this, it ensures the right home, not just a right now home.

I have volunteered and adopted from various animal rescue groups. ARP goes the extra mile. They do not just take in the easily adoptable dogs (which is what many rescues do), they are willing to look "outside the box" at an animal and give it every chance to find its forever home. Every dollar goes to where it should. A fantastic organization.

"A group of individuals rescuing 'purebred' dogs from the Clark County, NV area animal shelters that have "timed out" (scheduled for euthanasia)." A great organization leading the way to a no-kill county. Great effort all around!

Adopt a Rescue Pet is an excellent organization. Ms. Davis and her staff and volunteers take in dogs that would otherwise be euthanized or abandoned and provide them with food, shelter, medical care if necessary and much needed love. They then spay and neuter them and place them in loving homes which are carefully checked prior to placement. They work very well not only with shelters but with other rescue groups.

We have a pet sitting service in Las Vegas. We collect donations from our clients frequently and deliver them to their PetSmart location on weekends. Some of the items include blankets, food, toys, etc. We have also adopted three wonderful dogs through them in the past 9 years.

In 2005 I realized that my American Eskimo son (the great, late Handsome Bear Kelly) needed a sibling. I went online and found Adopt A Rescue Pet and made contact. I set up an appt to go see the Eskie dogs for adoption. One of them was an 8-10 yr old female with vision challenges named Gypsy. I knew instantly that she was his new sister! I was so impressed with Heidi Pieper and the love she gave to these dogs blessed enough to be fostered by her and her husband Jay! I also met ARP's founder Elizabeth Davis and helped to raise money for them because I know that this organization is run well. Often times, we donate to a charity never really knowing if the monies are being used properly. I proudly attest to knowing that ARP is a model charity for helping abused and abandonded dogs. If you only have $1 to give, please give it to ARP!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Adopting a wonderful American Eskimo dog; befriending the couple who fostered her, and helping them as a volunteer.

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

NONE! They are consistently efficient, professional, and do right by the dogs.

How did you find this group?

Straightforward, honest, kind, caring, giving everything they could.

What, if any, change in your life has this group encouraged?

Awareness of how much we can all do to help dogs; even if it's not through a permanent adoption. I.E. Fostering, donating money and/or items that can be sold to raise funds, explaining to others how to not create situations that add to the dogs that are abandoned and/or abused by being responsible pet owners, etc...

we recently adopted a dog from ARP. the people there were very helpful and actually cared that the dog got a good home. I would refer anyone here that's looking for a pet, they have a variety of pets, not just cats and dogs.
