My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Mr. Arlo is looking for his forever home. He has stolen our hearts with his quirky personality and boundless energy. He is a 2-4 year old Jack Russell Terrier who needs an active home with daily walks. He will be your new best friend and give you endless laughs and cuddles! He is deaf however, we often forget as he listens as well as most dogs 😂 He is potty trained and well behaved in the home. He has had some run-ins with other dogs in the trauma of this past year and will need to be re-socialized. At this time it would be best for him to be in a home with no other dogs or small animals. He is available for adoption through @ahome4spot Please reach out with any questions or share this post with anyone who may be interested in meeting this sweet boy! If you would like to meet this FANTASTIC guy please send in an interest application.

More about this rescue

A Home 4 Spot is comprised of many volunteers throughout Las Vegas, Henderson, North Las Vegas and other outlining areas that take in abused, neglected, medical needs and at risk dogs in their homes to start the rehabilitation process to heal our dogs inside out. Our objective is simple in that we treat, socialize and re-home dogs to homes that we closely evaluate making sure that each dog continues to thrive in their new home.
We have open our very own thrift store so people can donate slightly used items so we can spruce them up a bit, recondition and then resale them to the public which in return gives us the ability to help more dogs. Because of the decline in our economy, these last few years have been extremely hard for charities like ourselves and we have really seen the affects. We hate to turn any dog away and would love to save them all so any amount whether it be $1.00 to $100.00, helps us maintain our goal to eventually help self sustain our costs and eventually grow our rescue to its biggest potential possible.
More times than not, we will help a family who simply cannot afford medical treatment on a dog. Our referral system and our contacts give us the ability to reasonably help a family take care of their dog's financial needs and in the event that they cannot, we have never turned a dog away in need.
We offer other services such as training, medical care and education to the public. Our training just doesn't involve the dogs, but the humans associated with the dogs. If we can help an owner find a solution to keep their pet and it is in the best interest for the pet to stay with the owner, than we work closely with these individuals and formulate plans to achieve this. Sometimes it is just as simple as the food they eat and sometimes it involves getting in trainers to work closely with the dogs to encourage socialization, acceptable behavior in public and the home.
Each volunteer that we accept into A Home 4 Spot is given an application to fill out on our website, www.ahome4spot.com and is required to receive periodic home checks as well as each volunteer must agree to transport the animal to the vet care facility as needed and attend at least two adoption events a month If for some reason this is not able to happen for reasons unseen, we have other volunteers that can help with transport and handle the dog during the events. The goal is to provide a safe, warm home with lots of love to reverse the dog’s outlook on life.
We host adoption events every Saturday at PetSmart, located at 1321 W Craig Rd. in North Las Vegas. We do provide food and the basic care items for our dogs so volunteers have the tools to successfully care for the placed dog in their home. Because we are a non-profit, we rely on fundraising and charity donations to help us with the biggest expense, our medical. Typically, our medical runs about $4,000.00 plus a month. We provide all the shots, microchip, and the spay or neuter plus any additional treatment needed. Our typical adoption fees range from $350.00 upward to $600.00. This really just depends on the dog's medical needs, the age of the dog, the training needed and of course the breed of the dog. When we reference breed of the dog, it is simply because we encourage people to understand that certain dogs are extremely high maintenance and require more than just routine care so an increase in the adoption cost gives us somewhat of a guideline that this family could afford the needs of the dog with less chance of a return or a "dump".
Every family considering adopting a dog goes through a complete thorough process. It begins with a search on our site Ahome4spot.com or maybe they have seen one of our dogs at an event or a blast on social media. They can inquire many ways. One would be via email, another by phone and lastly they can also attend our events to meet and greet the dog they are drawn too. We have a very thorough application process that includes a rather lengthy questionnaire, a thorough home check and sometimes several visits and/or play dates. We are in absolutely no hurry to ever place any of our dogs, in fact we believe that finding the right fit for all parties concerned might take more than just a meet and greet and home check. Because of this, our return rate is extremely lower than per say establishments such as kill shelters. Our volunteers area given the right tools to help them determine whether or not the home is the perfect match. Even though our efforts are valiant in this process, we still receive from time to time dogs back into the rescue and we are proud to say that we keep the commitment to the families we adopt out too as well as continue our relationship with them forever.
