Each week, hundreds of healthy and very adoptable dogs, cats, kittens, and pups are euthanized simply because their time in a shelter has run out. We focus our efforts on rescuing pets from facilities that are unable to house them indefinitely. In our first year of operation, S.A.F.E. saved over 500 animals, and to date, we have saved over 7,000 lives! Adopt A Rescue Pet, commonly known as ARP, is incorporated in Nevada for the charitable purposes of animal welfare and pet ownership services. As an IRS approved 501.c.3 tax-exempt charity, your donation to ARP may be tax deductible (NRS 82 & NRS 598). EIN 88-0487028Before this, enormous numbers of animals who went into shelters never came out. More than 40 years ago, an average of 20 million dogs and cats were euthanized annually. Humane organizations started a campaign to spay and neuter pets, especially those coming through shelters, and today —still terrible, but a vast improvement. In addition to pet sterilization, an effort also began to find accommodations for homeless animals outside the municipal and private shelter systems, which have limited room and often short deadlines for keeping animals before moving them to death row. The new organizations take potentially adoptable pets out of the shelters and foster them, usually in private homes, until the right owner comes along. They control the fate of an increasing number of animals. In New York City, for example, almost 45 percent of the dogs and cats that come into are passed to one of more than 150 private rescue groups.Each rescued pet that comes into Rescued Treasures has been saved from either a kill shelter or an owner who could no longer take care of him/her. Rescued Treasures takes the time to get each pet fully vetted to ensure that the pet is healthy. The pet is then placed in a loving and devoted foster home who cares for and trains him/her to become wonderful companions for his/her forever adoptive family.Rescued Treasures Pet Adoptions is a 501c3 non-profit pet rescue run solely by volunteers who have a passion to help society’s abandoned cats and dogs. Each year in the United States 3-4 million dogs and cats are euthanized in shelters. While Rescued Treasures Pet Adoptions cannot solve this problem, we have dedicated ourselves to saving as many as we can.You might think adopting a cat would be easier than getting a dog. After all, the solitary, self-sufficient feline is the perfect pet for the working person. But I heard from people who were turned down because of the curse of full-time employment—the cat may ignore you, but you should be home all day anyway. Others were told they need to accept a pair of cats or get nothing. And don’t even think about telling the rescue people your cat might go outside occasionally. Lisa wrote to say that she rescues strays that live in her house but are allowed outdoors. When she was looking for another cat and explained this to the person at the shelter, they turned her away.
