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.

For more information, email or call 798-8663 or 883-0035.
