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 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.

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

We absolutely love Adopt-A-Rescue Pet. They are by far one of the best nonprofit organizations we've ever had the honor of working with!

Adopt a Rescue Pet is one of the largest and most active rescues in Las Vegas and have been operating here for 15 years. They have rescued literally thousands of dogs, most of which would most likely have been put to death at a kill shelter. They go above and beyond to help animals. And THAT'S what it's all about (or should be).
