Meet Essie

Essie is a 13 year old Shih Tzu that was saved after her owner passed away. Tragically, it turns out Essie is in end stage renal failure, and is now a hospice dog. We are keeping her comfortable and happy for the time she has left. If you would like to donate to her care - please use the PayPal or Colorado Gives using the buttons below. While hospice dogs are emotionally hard, it's the biggest gift we can give a rescue - love while they transition over. Thank you for helping us help her.



Life is Better Rescue is partnering with BarkBox to bring you savings and your pups joy. Get $5 off any BarkBox subscription and support our rescue! For every coupon used on, our rescue will get a $15 donation from BarkBox. Be sure to use our special promo code: LifBBX1.

Boots for Boots


The 2014 LIBR spokeskitten is Boots. Boots was rescued from euthanasia at barely 2 weeks old when she was dropped of at a municipal shelter with both of her rear feet cut off.

Being saved from euthansia and being bottle fed until she was able to eat on her own was just the beginning of this little girl's long road to recovery. She has learned to walk with "house slippers" and will eventually need surgery to clean up the ends of her legs to help with the permanent fitting of prosthetics. Read more about Boots' story here.

Could you help us get Boots for Boots? Even just by sharing this campaign, you can make the difference for a single cat, and any number of other animals we may be called upon to help.

What’s $5 or more if you can make the dream of a pain-free existence for a cat like Boots a reality for the rest of her days?

Please consider giving today – to help give Boots a better tomorrow. You can donate easily through PayPal or Colorado Gives using the buttons below.

Thank you for your time and generosity!
