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.

Shelters are full of wonderful, but misunderstood dogs. They have been dumped because they didn't fit into the previous human's lifestyle. This group is one of many that take in those poor dogs that have been discarded and forgotten. This tireless group of volunteers do everything in their power to ensure this dog's next home will be the best match for both the humans and the dog involved. They are the voice for the animal that can not communitate what type of home envirnoment would make them most happy. I'm proud to volunteer for an organization that truly puts the animals' best interest at heart everyday!

I became involved in volunteering with Adopt A Rescue Pet (ARP) several months ago. They are an organization that is truly devoted to their cause. Everyone goes above and beyond in their dedication, hard work and their commitment. They are all a wonderful group of people that care deeply about what they do. I feel very fortunate to have become a part of ARP and I am so appreciative of everyday I am involved. They have had a great impact on my life because of the amazing people they are and because of the extraordinary efforts everyone puts forth to achieve their ultimate goal.. of finding a forever home for the countless number of homeless dogs that need their help.

This is the best organization I have donated to. The thing that I love the most about them is when I donate money they do not spend all my donation on sending me things in the mail (tshirts, car decals, magnates, blankets, ect...) All the money my family and I donate go strait to help the 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.
