Donations allow Adopt a Rescue Pet animal sanctuary to remain open

After weeks of seeking donations to cover a $70,000 debt, Adopt a Rescue Pet, 1500 E. Tropicana Ave., Suite 105, will be able to keep adoptable animals at its 5-acre Amargosa Valley property.

The $70,000 sum was to cover a balloon payment on the mortgage that was to be paid by a private grant. When that funding was no longer available, the nonprofit animal rescue organization sought donations and conducted creative fundraising to cover the cost.

As of midnight May 1 — the deadline for the payment — the remaining donations were gathered, and the property was saved, said Elizabeth Davis Rubin, founder and president of the organization.

Rubin said that although the payment is covered, residents are welcome to donate funds or supplies to the organization.

For more information, email arpinfo@adoptarescuepet.org or call 798-8663 or 883-0035.

To adopt a pet, visit PetSmart at 2140 N. Rainbow Blvd. from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday.

Fruition Vineyards Encourages Young Entrepreneurs to "Buy, Flip, Dream"
Once a month, young adults gather at Fruition Vineyards on South Maryland Parkway near UNLV to dig through a stack of rare, vintage and designer clothing that's marked down well below it's resale value. Shop founder Valerie Julian began the vent, dubbed "Fruition Vineyards" in August after running her streetwear shop since 2005. The event gives young entrepreneurs the opportunity to "buy, flip, dream" according to Jean. Meaning that they're encouraged to buy the clothing for sale and find a way to resell it for a profit, then reinvest that into whatever dream they pursue: college, a hobby or their own resale business. Shoppers lined up starting an hour before noon on the last Saturday in April for the opportunity and spoke about what they hoped to do with their finds and profits.
