Local Pet Rescue Group Faces Foreclosure | News
One of Nevada's largest animal rescue shelters might have to close if it cannot raise sufficient money to avoid foreclosure on its Amargosa Valley dog sanctuary.
Adopt A Rescue Pet (ARP) has less than 45 days to raise $70,000 to pay off the pending balloon payment for its five-acre dog sanctuary in Amargosa Valley. Private foundation grant funding was to have provided the money in January, but when the foundation suddenly went defunct, the non-profit pet rescue organization found itself in trouble.
"We are deeply concerned about the future of pets in the Las Vegas area if we are not able to secure the funding necessary to keep our doors open," ARP Founder Elizabeth Rubin said. "At the very least, 300 pets would immediately be without a home. There just isn't any place locally or statewide that could take our pets. Sadly, they would most likely have to be euthanized."
To secure the funding needed to keep the doors open at ARP, the animal rescue group announced the 700-Strong Club, a group of 700 people who commit financially to donate a minimum of $100 in the next 30 days.
Donations of any amount can be made via the ARP website, www.adoptarescuepet.org, or deposited directly into Adopt A Rescue Pet’s bank account at Nevada State Bank / Adopt A Rescue Pet Sanctuary Account #102013604. Donations can be mailed to: Adopt A Rescue Pet, Admin. Office. / Sanctuary Funds, 1500 E. Tropicana, Ste 105, Las Vegas, NV, 89119.
