Adopting A Friend

Please email us at dogrescuelv@hotmail.com before the events to make sure the dog that you are interested in,  is scheduled to be there.

We have an application process at the time of adoption.  You will need proof of address and your drivers license.  You must be 21 yrs old to adopt.  If you live at home with relatives, we must have verification from the home owner that you are allowed to adopt.

Renters must show proof of pet restrictions whether it be weight, age or breed restrictions.  We will not adopt a dog that is outside of these restrictions. 

We limit our adoptions to a 3 hour drive radius of Las Vegas, NV.  Out of state adoptions are allowed as long as you are within the 3 hour radius. 

Adoption fees do apply.  They range from $100 to $395 based on the age, breed and special needs of the dog.  All dogs are spay or neutered before they can go home.  If they are not altered prior to the adoption event, they will be scheduled at our vet and you would pick the pet up after surgery. 


Who We Are

Adopt A Rescue Pet, formerly known as “Shelter Dog Rescue”, was created by a group of individuals who rescued “purebred” dogs scheduled for euthanasia at animal shelters in the Clark County, Nevada area.

By January of 1999, Shelter Dog Rescue had grown into an organization that included volunteers who rescued a variety of animals needing a second chance at finding a loving home. Such animals included cats, ferrets, rabbits, pond fish and all types of dogs.

Since obtaining non-profit approval in 2000, Adopt A Rescue Pet has grown to be one of Nevada's largest animal rescue groups providing a safe haven for dogs suffering from abuse, neglect or homelessness. In most of these cases, death would have resulted if the animal had entered a municipally funded shelter.

Currently, Adopt A Rescue Pet houses rescued dogs in foster homes, local boarding facilities, and our "under construction" rescue ranch & retirement facility.

Adopt A Rescue Pet receives no local or federal funding, it relies solely on the generosity of its contributors and tax deductible donations received from the public.

Please browse through our site and make suggestions on what type information you would like to see displayed.


May it be big, small, private, or making a donation gift in lieu party, please contact us and we will be certain to provide the necessary donor documents, and literature, for your disbursement.

Thank you for caring & sharing!

Until there are none . . . rescue one.
