LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) --
People interested in adopting one of the dogs rescued from a January arson fire will have a 48-hour window to purchase tickets online starting at 11 a.m. Sunday.
The Animal Foundation and a A Home 4 Spot are working together to find homes for 25 of the 27 puppies that were rescued Jan. 27 when two people allegedly set fire to the Prince & Princess Puppy Boutique on South Rainbow.
The drawing is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. Sunday and end at 11 a.m. Tuesday.

Those interested in adopting a dog rescued from the fire can purchase entry tickets for the pet(s) they are interested in adopting for $250 per ticket, the equivalent of each puppy’s adoption fee.
Winners will be chosen at random and notified on Wednesday.
The entry fee will serve as the adoption fee for the drawing winners. Spay/neuter, microchip, up-to-date vaccines, a starter bag of food, and a voucher good for a complimentary wellness exam at participating veterinary hospitals will all be included.
The proceeds from the tickets that are not selected will be used to subsidize future placements with the more than 70 rescue organizations partnering with The Animal Foundation.
In an effort to find homes for the hundreds of other incredible animals waiting for homes, The Animal Foundation has decided that it will waive the adoption fee for one (1) animal for any drawing participant who is not selected as a winning adopter for these puppies through Sept. 30.
“We felt it was so important to use this opportunity to try to find incredible homes for our other great pets, in addition to the dogs from the fire,” said Christine Robinson, executive director for The Animal Foundation. “We receive an average of 110 new animals every single day. They all need homes. They all need love. They all need families. We are incredibly excited to be offering this opportunity to the participants of the drawing who aren’t selected to take a pet store puppy home.”
