What we're about

Our dream at Vegas Pet Rescue Project is to positively impact the Las Vegas homeless, abused and abandoned pets that overwhelm our shelter system by giving them a new lease on LIFE. Our primary focus will be to assist the local animal shelters (Animal Foundation and Henderson Shelter) with the pets who have been given limited time to be adopted before they are removed from the shelter system due to a multitude of reasons. We will accomplish this goal through our extensive network of foster families, donations, and sponsors. We would also like to help finance spay and neuter programs to help low income families be responsible pet owners and decrease the overpopulation issues we face in Vegas. We also feel it important to collect pet supplies and food for local rescues and the city’s Good Samaritans who foster rescue pets and take in strays. Eventually we would love to help create a volunteer based program to investigate and bring down illegal breeding. We have been helping the pet rescue effort in the city for 3 years now and feel like we are just getting started...
We are looking for volunteers and potential fosters to assist us with transporting of animals, scheduling of meet and greets/ house checks, animal handling at events, animal training, social media/marketing/adoption events, vetting out potential adopters, assisting with getting animals to vet appointments/ temp fostering while foster parents are traveling, etc. We are looking for people who are passionate about animal welfare and making a difference, whether you have only an hour a week to dedicate, or more, any effort and time is welcome. If this sounds like something you'd want to join in on, please let us know!
