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.

The head of this rescue and most of the people involved who foster pets are beyond committed to saving the lives of precious dogs that deserve the love and security of good homes. I've adopted 2 dogs from them in the last 8 years and am indescribably grateful for both blessings.

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.

I have never met a more dedicated team of volunteers in a local charity. No animal is ever turned away. This organization truly supports the homeless dogs of Nevada. They are concerned where their rescued dogs go and really do a back ground ground check on the future parent. They would rather keep taking care of animal verse putting said animal in a wrong home. I have seen them take a dog back years after it was adopted out. They also will provide an injured animal every possible medical need it would require before putting the animal down. For the reasons listed, I have no problem donating to this wonder animal rescue organization.
