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.

My name is Ray Jacoby. Along with Judy Guarino, we have adopted several dogs from A.R.P. and Elizabeth.
Never have there been any negative aspects or problems with her dogs. One adoption, which started out as a "foster" situation involving a 2 year old mistreated and abandoned pregnant siberian husky. Three days after we got "Lola", we had to rush her to the vet for an emergency C- section. Elizabeth and A.R.P. handled the entire process with aplomb and professionalism. A.R.P. and Elizabeth should be commended for the difficult service they perform.

I started out with rescue with ARP over 9 years ago. They have fully supported my fostering and caring for older senior dogs. They have all found loving homes. Thank you ARP for caring.

I have been a volunteer and a donor to adopt a rescue pet since 2008. I have never seen more people solely dedicated to the cause of helping find forever homes for homeless pets. I have been on the front lines with AARP and I have seen the work especially that Elizabeth and Naomi have done. I have countless stories of self sacrifice and dedication I could write about. Big shout out also to Cindy and Marshall who have for over 10 years volunteered at at adoptions almost every weekend they could have easily been doing something else. This organization deserves praise, respect and most importantly funding to keep going. AARP does the community an imprtant service by taking in the dogs that no one else would and finding them forever homes. I stand behind them 100% and always will

This rescue currently has 200-300 dogs kept in terrible conditions at two different locations that never get adopted or even offered. Las Vegas Metro PD and animal control have open cases from just last year after investigating one of their locations and finding animals in dire circumstances. They have been kicked out of Petsmart and not allowed to do adoption events and the Animal Foundation has found then unsuitable to allow them to pull dogs since 2009. The dogs they offer at adoptions, which they continue to do at Petco, are mostly brought in from California and they are dishonest about the history of the pet and have ridiculously inflated adoption fees. Adopting from them means a local dog doesn't have a home and you are helping them continue to take in thousands of dollars a month while they continue to let the other 300 dogs die unloved uncared for and in despicable conditions. This is the worst of what a rescue can be. http://www.ktnv.com/news/contact-13/insider-exposes-poor-conditions-at-dog-rescue-group

Adopt A Rescue Pet was wonderful to work with. They set us up with a wonderful start to adding Tuffy to our family. Cindy and Elizabeth have hearts of gold. This is a wonderful and professional organization that is looking to make the world so much better, one paw at a time.

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.

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.
