Mona Lou "Monsie" Cameron was a patron of Life is Better Rescue and the grandmother to President Georgia Cameron and mother to board member W. Bruce Cameron. She passed away peacefully on November 26, 2019. To honor her memory, friends and family have requested that donations be made to Life is Better. Accordingly, we've established this Colorado Gives link to facilitate your tax-deductible contributions.

Your gift can be made anonymously, in any amount. Or, if you would prefer, you may mail your charitable contribution to our organization. Please reference "Monsie" in the memo field. Our mailing address is Life is Better Rescue, PO Box 19159, Denver, CO 80219.

Thank you for your kindness and consideration in helping us to celebrate the long, loving, and wonderful life of Monsie Cameron.

Holiday Fundraiser

Pine Tree Fundraiser

As part of our holiday fundraising efforts, this year Life is Better Rescue is offering "grow your own pine tree" boxes. Although these seedlings won't be ready to act as your Christmas tree anytime soon, they are a great way to give a gift that will continue to be enjoyed in years to come, while also providing medical services to our animals awaiting forever homes. With your tax deductible donation of $25, we would love to help you give the gift of hope this holiday season.

Each kit contains a plantable peat pot, a soil disc, and a package of pine tree seeds with wooden marker. Seeds take 2-3 weeks to sprout.

Trees are currently for pickup only.
