Three Words That Are Easy to Say

DeeDee loves I and Love and You dog food!

It takes a village, and we are so proud and humble to be supported by ours. I and Love and You is a Boulder based pet food company that uses wholesome ingredients to keep pets well fed. When they heard about our attempts to keep Denver Animal Shelter and other municipal shelters free of animals of all ages, they stepped up and donated more than a pallet of their food to help us send home with fosters. Here, you can see one of the Denver shelter rescues, DeeDee, is ready for her dinner (and that she loves being fed ILY).

In times of crisis, we look for the helpers. This great company is one of our helpers, and we would encourage you to check out their awesome line of pet food and treats, and by helping support them, you also help support us!

Thanks to everyone as we work together.

Life is Better Rescue is committed to helping the shelter pet population find forever families and new beginnings, and nothing about that has changed in these current times. For those who aren't aware, Denver Animal Shelter (among others) has had to shut its doors to adoptions.

This means dogs and cats who could be in a home can't be unless someone like us steps up to the plate. As of writing this message, Life is Better has removed approximately 50 canines and felines from the shelter environment in 72 hours.

How can you help?

We need foster homes. We need folks to make calls and process applications. We need adopters and donors and supporters that understand any gift, whether it is one of volunteering time or a donation of money and supplies, is what's going to help us continue to provide safe haven for animals in need.

Want to help make this world a little better? Email and in the subject line, indicate what it is you think you'd like to be doing. We will attempt to get back in touch as soon as we can.

As a community, pulling together is what will get us through. In the meantime, if you want to make an active positive difference, here is your opportunity.

Thanks for making these things possible.

Love For Life Postponed

Our largest fundraising event, Love for Life, had been booked for Saturday, 3/21. After discussions with team leadership and the hosting venue, we have decided to act within the best practices of social distance during these early stages of the COVID-19 outbreak, and as such will be rescheduling Love for Life. We want to act responsibly and with thought and care to our members and volunteers.

The new Love for Life date will be Friday, October 23rd and the venue will remain the Welshire Golf Course. If you have purchased a ticket and would like a refund, please email and we will work on getting tickets refunded within the next few days. If you are still wanting to support us and are flexible in your schedule, we are happy to roll your tickets to October. The dinner and auction items (plus wall of wine) will be as awesome as ever, and we pledge to make the night as absolutely fabulous as possible.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding!
