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.

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.

Adopt A Rescue Pet is a wonderful organization that is committed to their cause. Their love, dedication and hard work is seen every day, from caring for the dogs to regular adoption events to fundraising. They have rescued thousands of dogs, who would have been euthanized or abandoned, and given them a second chance. Thank you, Adopt A Rescue Pet, for all you do to help the pets of Las Vegas!

It's a real shame that ARP is being blamed for some horse enthusiasts who lied to them, originally in a panic, about rescuing some horses from slaughter and begging ARP to sponsor a project that was, and is, a fraud.

Seems this organization is behind on filing tax reports, none filed since 2012.

Northeastern Nevada Equine Rescue claims that Adopt A Rescue Pet is their umbrella organization, but it appears they do not comply with the mission statement of Adopt a Rescue Pet since it was set up to address issues with dogs, not horses.

Northeastern Nevada Equine Rescue, of Wells, Nevada has fundraised THOUSANDS of dollars which they claim ran through Adopt A Rescue Pet organization as the umbrella organization. And when(NNER)was doing these fundraisers they have told the public they had a tax exempt status again by using Adopt A Rescue Pet's 501c3 status.

"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!
