Getting a new dog is extremely exciting.
Adopting a dog is a very exciting time. It is important to prepare yourself for the excitement of getting a new pet.
Remember that dogs are like children: they require care, attention, and guidance. They are also not able to communicate their needs in ways that we understand, so it’s up to you as an owner to provide them with what they need and want. It’s important not to get too excited about getting your new best friend because once you bring home your pup from Animal Foundation (or anywhere else), it will be your job as an owner to make sure that he or she has everything needed for a happy life!
Before getting a dog, take some time and think about what you want from this experience? What kind of lifestyle do I have right now? Am I ready for the responsibility of caring for another living creature who depends on me 100%? How much space do I have available at home?
We want to help you make the experience as easy as possible.
We want to make the process as easy as possible, so we offer a variety of ways to adopt. You can visit our website and see the list of dogs we have available for adoption. Another option is to visit our shelter in person where you’ll be able to interact with any potential adoptees. Finally, all animals coming from us are given a 30-day return policy should your new pet not work out for your family.
To help you choose the right dog for your family, we offer information about the dogs’ temperaments and behaviors.
When you adopt a dog from the Animal Foundation, we want to set you up with a four-legged friend who is right for you and your family. To help you choose the right dog for your family, we offer information about the dogs’ temperaments and behaviors.
Because dogs are individuals, our notes on each one’s behavior may be somewhat subjective. For example, two people might describe a particular dog’s personality in two very different ways. The notes may also be incomplete because many of our guests have only been with us for a short time before they are adopted. This sometimes prevents us from being able to assess their true personalities or behaviors. We try to work with them as quickly as possible to at least observe how they interact with other animals and people so we can share that information with you here.
The dogs listed here have been named by their owners or by staff members at the shelter, animal control officers throughout Clark County or good Samaritans who rescue strays and bring them to us for adoption into new homes. Some of them are given names; some aren’t described beyond perhaps age, size, appearance, color or breed – but all of them are looking forward to a new life with an adoptive owner who will love them unconditionally!
When you adopt from us, you are covered by our 30-day return policy.
The Animal Foundation has a 30-day return policy. If you adopt a dog and it turns out to not be the right fit, you can bring him/her back to the no-kill shelter within 30 days of the adoption date. The same goes if he/she gets sick or if you simply change your mind. You can exchange your dog for another one as long as you’ve had him/her for less than 30 days. After that, there are no refunds or exchanges.
If you already have a pet, please bring him or her to meet your prospective new family member.
The Animal Foundation wants to help you and your current pet(s) choose a new family member.
If you already have a dog, the shelter suggests bringing your dog with you when you visit the shelter to meet prospective new friends. The animal care technicians will walk your dog together with potential companions, so you can see how they get along. If the dogs seem to like each other, and you think it would be a good fit for your household, then consider adopting! If it doesn’t work out, no worries—there are many more dogs at the shelter that might want to be best friends with your furry friend.
Cats are trickier than dogs, but bringing them in for an introduction is still possible. Cats need to meet in a neutral space without one of them feeling too territorial. This is usually best done at an animal care technician’s desk or in an office. The length of time it takes for cats to warm up to one another depends on their individual personalities; some cats may become friends immediately while others might take weeks (or longer) before they feel comfortable around one another.
You can also ask for advice on blending your new family member into the existing household.
Once you pick up your new pet, let the animal get to know his surroundings before you try to introduce him to the resident dog or cat. After all, this is a new place to the pup and it’s going to take a while for him to get accustomed. Let him sniff things out on his own, and try not to hover over him too much.
Once he seems comfortable in his environment, you can let resident pets meet the newcomer. If possible, have someone else hold the resident dog on a leash while you scoop up the new one (so she doesn’t feel threatened). Don’t force things if either animal seems uncomfortable; just let them sniff each other out before trying again later.
Once they do seem comfortable with each other, keep an eye out for any potential dangers like jealousy or territorial behavior over toys or possessions. Your resident pooch may react negatively if she feels her position as alpha has been usurped by her canine brother—and this can be particularly dangerous in a pack of multiple dogs. Be sure that both pets have a dedicated space where they can go for alone time and rest without interruption from their siblings; in addition, make sure that both dogs have access to food dishes and water bowls so that nobody feels like they’re being slighted at mealtime (or worse—that somebody’s stealing their grub).
The Animal Foundation offers low-cost spay/neuter surgeries and vaccinations to the public.

Come visit us and find out how to add a new forever friend to your family!
One of the most important things about adopting a pet is making sure that you are taking a proper, loving home for your new family member. With this in mind, there are some steps to take before you visit our facility. Before you come to visit, please make sure that:
- You have a leash, collar or harness (depending on if your pet is canine or feline), and proper ID tags. As long as they pass their behavior assessment they will be permitted to go out into the community with their new family, so it’s important that they have all of the necessary items to keep them safe! In addition, proper identification can mean the difference between finding lost pets or not finding them in case they manage to escape from their new homes without supervision.
- You bring a pet carrier along with you if you plan on adopting cats or small animals such as rabbits and guinea pigs. Our staff will be able to help move your newly adopted pets into your car safely but it is important for you to provide appropriate transportation for them once home.
- You make sure that we accept whichever form of payment works best for you before arriving at our Las Vegas shelter. We accept cash, check and credit cards including Visa and MasterCard – but unfortunately we do not accept American Express at this time!
We can’t wait to meet with everyone who wants an animal companion!
Adopt don’t shop!
Adoption is not a temporary decision like buying a puppy, it’s a life-long commitment. The first thing you should do is think about your lifestyle. If you are an active person and enjoy going on long walks, hiking or running, then a high energy dog would be best for you. If you live in the city and already have several pets, a dog that likes to bark constantly would not be the right fit for you.
There are many reasons to adopt rather than buy a pet from an online seller or breeder:
- Adoption saves money – Buying from breeders can cost up to thousands of dollars depending on their breed. Instead of spending thousands of dollars at breeders or pet stores, your adoption fee goes toward saving more lives.
- You save a life – There are millions of dogs that need homes waiting in shelters around the country today. When people shop instead of adopt they support bad breeding practices and take away potential homes from animals who need them desperately!
- You are helping to reduce the homeless animal population – When people adopt rather than shop they help stop bad breeding practices which cause overpopulation
Hey all! My name is [Name], and I’m here to talk to you about the steps to adopting a dog from the Animal Foundation. As someone that has adopted two dogs from the foundation, I can wholeheartedly say that it was one of the best decisions I have ever made in life.
If you are interested in adopting a dog, then you should start by looking at the dogs up for adoption on their website. Make sure to look through them all, and keep in mind that new dogs are added often! Once you have found a dog or two that you are interested in, then the next step is to fill out an application on their website. This is where you will be asked what kind of dog(s) you are looking for, how big your yard is, if you have other pets and how big your house is. The application also asks if anyone in your household has any allergies. They want to make sure that every dog finds a forever home to live out their lives in comfort and happiness.
Once your application has been approved, then it’s just a matter of going down to the shelter and seeing if your personality clicks with the dog(s) you chose. If everything goes well during your visit, then congratulations! You’re now
Are you considering adopting a dog from the Animal Foundation? The foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping rescue and rehome animals throughout the world.
It’s important to be aware of the many responsibilities that come with adopting an animal. While it may be tempting to adopt an animal without first doing research, this isn’t always the best idea. It’s crucial to understand what you’re getting into before you make that commitment.
The Animal Foundation is one of several organizations that offer adoption services for animals. While some places will only allow you to adopt if you have a specific reason or need, others allow anyone who wants one of their dogs or cats. You should know what type of adoption service you’re looking at before making any decisions because each organization has different requirements for who they will consider adopting out their pets to.
Animals are not just cute and cuddly—they require love, attention, training, grooming, and care! Make sure that you’ve researched all these things before deciding on an adoption service so that when it comes time for your new pet to come home with you, he’ll feel welcome in his new home.
So, you’ve decided to adopt a dog! Great idea! There are so many dogs at the Animal Foundation just waiting for you to come and take them home.
Here’s how you can get started: First, go to their website https://www.animalfoundation.com/adopt/dogs and browse through some of the dogs that have been put up for adoption. If you find one that catches your interest, click on their name or picture to learn more about them.
After you’ve found a dog that you like, you can visit them at the Animal Foundation from 11am-6pm every day of the week except Wednesdays (the shelter is closed), or on Sundays from 11am-5pm.
If you want to make sure your new dog is going to be a good fit for your family, the Animal Foundation recommends bringing everybody in the family along with you when visiting your potential new dog. This will give everyone an opportunity to get acquainted with each other and make sure everyone is comfortable with this new addition to your family before actually adopting them.
You can also bring other pets in your household along when visiting your potential new pet so they can
The Animal Foundation is a local nonprofit animal shelter that has been operating in [city] for ten years now. It’s known for being a place where you can find an amazing dog and even volunteer in your free time.
The Foundation works with dogs of all shapes and sizes, breeds, and ages. They don’t discriminate against any type of dog. Chihuahuas, German Shepherds, Labradors, Pitbulls—you name it! Every animal deserves a home.
In addition to having dogs at the shelter, the Foundation also partners with local businesses to host adoption events. These events are a great way to meet some of the dogs up for adoption without having to travel across town. You can even bring your current furry friend along to see how they get along with their potential new family members!
If you’re looking for a new best friend or just want an excuse to pet some cute doggos, check out the Foundation’s website. You won’t regret it!
My family and I are animal lovers. We have always had furry friends running around our house. We decided to adopt a dog because we wanted to save a life.
At the Animal Foundation, there are a lot of animals to choose from and many different breeds. When we went in, we did not know what kind of dog we wanted to get. We were looking at all the dogs and then one came up to us. I knew right away that my family was going to take this one home with us.
The process was easy and smooth. The workers at the Animal Foundation are very helpful and they answer any questions you ask them. They are very friendly as well as the volunteers who walk you around the facility to see all the animals ready for adoption. They make sure that you leave with an animal that is suitable for your lifestyle and family situation.
We asked about the dog’s health condition, his/her personality traits and his/her background story so we could get an idea of how to care for him/her at home. The workers helped us put together everything we needed in order to adopt this dog like food, toys, etc.. All we had to do is pay a small fee of $100 which covers vaccinations, spaying or neutering and
Are you looking for a new furry friend? You’re in the right place.

The best first step is to take a look at all of the dogs up for adoption on [shelter’s website].
If one of them catches your eye, fill out an application and an adoption counselor will get in touch with you to set up an appointment time.

Right now, animals are dying in shelters.
That fact can be hard to face, especially when you’ve recently lost a beloved pet to old age or illness, or if you’re having trouble coping with the loss of a human family member.
The idea of adopting a pet and bringing it into your home can feel like an impossible dream. You may be afraid that the pain of losing another pet will be too hard to bear, or that you won’t be able to handle the responsibility of caring for another animal. Maybe you’ve just been too busy, or too stressed with work or other life situations to think about adding another living being into your life.
But here’s the thing:
You need that animal as much as they need you.
Adopting a pet is one of the most rewarding things you can do. It’s easy to think that shelter animals have somehow failed when they end up in shelters—that somehow they weren’t good enough to make it in their previous homes—but nothing could be farther from the truth. Most animals end up in shelters through no fault of their own: their owners moved away and couldn’t take them along; their owners passed away and had no one who could take them in; or their owners were unable to cope
