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 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.

My teenage daughter and I volunteer with Adopt-a-Rescue-Pet. We walk dogs and help as much as we can. Although we are fairly inexperienced with dogs, the other volunteers have been very welcoming to us. We have been having a wonderful time since joining the organization in the summer of 2014. My daughter and I are so happy when we see that one of the dogs we've walked and played with finds a forever home.

This is a great group of volunteers that work day in and day out to save hundreds of dogs in need. I have personally adopted 4 dogs from them and volunteer and foster often.

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.

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

Add paid staff and equipment to help them rescue more dogs. I would love for all their dogs to be fed donated, high quality food so that other expenses can be more easily handled. Increase the rescue's ability to fund-raise with more advertising.

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.

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.

I was retired...with dogs as my passion I chose to spend my free time helping homeless ones find a home. I have adopted all of my dogs through AARP. I called them and they graciously invited me to volunteer with them. Now I feel I am helping a organization that truly has the dogs best interest at heart. I feel blessed to give my energy and time to AARP.

We have adopted both of our dogs from Adopt a Rescue Pet. I am thankful the dogs get a second chance at life with this rescue and am proud to be a volunteer.

Been involved with this rescue for almost 3 years. Witnessed over 2500 adoptions. Many dogs with illnesses, needing medical attention with no other options have been saved by this rescue. Including some of my own, which I got from this group. Hope they continue on their path to make Las Vegas no kill.
