Life is Better Rescue is a foster based organization. Although this means that we have very little overhead costs, it also means that we can only show our animals by appointment. It also makes it difficult to show multiple animals at a single location, other than a litter or as animals that are being fostered in the same area.

Our experience has taught us that animals adopted together are generally more difficult to train well and have a harder time bonding with the new family, so we do not adopt multiple littermates (either cat or dog) unless there are special circumstances. We don't mind setting up an adoption for another animal at a later date, but we will generally only send one animal home at a time.

We do not have the capability to ship our animals.

Please note the best way to contact us is via e-mail. If you are interested in adopting an animal from Life is Better Rescue, please submit a completed adoption application form. We are unable to evaluate your adoption request unless this form has been submitted to us. Completion of the application does not guarantee adoption of an animal from Life is Better Rescue.

Dottie Dottie Dottie

Dottie is a 2 year old purebred tiny chihuahua that was saved form the overcrowded municipal shelter. She is a little hamster of a pup that weighs only 6 pounds (and won't get any bigger). She is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and dewormed. She loves other dogs, would be fine with cats, and does well with kids that respect her smaller size. Dottie is crate and house-trained with monitoring in new situations. She is a fabulous little girl who can't wait to be a part of someone's family. Dottie is an excellent choice for someone in an apartment or a condo, as she is very low maintenance in terms of exercise needs. Dottie is $250 to adopt.

Monty Monty Monty

Monty is an 18 month old non-shedding pup that was rescued from the overcrowded municipal shelter. He was such a matted mess when he came in, they couldn't figure out what his breed was, and were even worried he couldn't see. Turns out that under all that Rastafarian dreadlocks was a dog that appears to be a bichon/poodle mix. He is around 12lbs and should not get any bigger, and he is really a happy and outgoing dude now that he can see. New owners should take note that non-shedding does not mean no-maintenance. Monty will definitely need trips to the salon as part of his ownership. He is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, has been flea and tick treated as well as dewormed. He seems to do fine with other dogs and does well with kids that respect his smaller size and space. Monty is crate trained and with monitoring seems mostly house trained. He doesn't need much exercise, and would make a great dog looking for a more laid back lap companion that they could take for walks. Monty is $250 to adopt.

Mona Mona Mona

Mona is an 8 year old purebred teacup chihuahua that was saved from the overcrowded municipal shelter. She is less than 4lbs, but doesn't act like anything but a normal dog. She just had a dental, in addition to being spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, flea and tick treated as well as dewormed. Mona is great with other dogs, would be fine around cats, and while she does well with children, based on her small size she should ideally go to a home with older kids or ones that know how to be soft and gentle (so they don't accidentally break her.) She is crate trained and appears housetrained. This little lady is everything you could ask for in a quiet, pocket sized companion. Mona is $200 to adopt.

Marvin Marvin Marvin

Marvin is an 8 year old purebred pug that was saved from the overcrowded municipal shelter. Marvin was born with only one eye, and the other one doesn't seem to see well (if at all.) This doesn't stop Marvin from being absolutely outgoing and as happy as can be. Marvin is good with other dogs, can't find cats (so would be fine living with them) and is great around kids. He is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, flea and tick treated, is dewormed, and had a dental on 6/15. He is so much love and personality, that while he wouldn't be a great dog to take to the dog park, he would be an excellent family companion just looking for a mellow dude with a smile on his face to make their lives complete. He is crate trained, and once he figures out the lay of the land, does pretty well with housetraining. Marvin is ready to go and is $200 to adopt.

Mitzi Mitzi Mitzi

Mitzi is a 10 month old chihuahua/dachshund mix that was saved from the overcrowded municipal shelter. She is a honey love of a puppy, and only weighs about 6lbs. We do not expect her to get very much bigger. Mitzi is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, flea and tick treated, and has been dewormed. She seems crate and house trained, and does great with kids, cats and other dogs. Mitzi would love to be part of a family home, and she doesn't need a whole lot by way of exercise (so would be an excellent choice for an apartment or townhome.) Mitzi is ready for her forever family to find her. Could it be you? she is $300 to adopt.

Maddox Maddox Maddox

Maddox is a 3 year old Jack Russel Terrier that was saved from the overcrowded municipal shelter. He is a super outgoing and spunky guy that loves to please and learn new things. He already knows some basic obedience (like sit and down), and he seems crate and housetrained when given a reminder in a new setting. He wants very much to please and is a wonderful dog that will make an excellent addition to a family that wants an interactive companion. Maddox is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, flea and tick treated, and has been dewormed. He seems to do well with other dogs and would do great with kids. All in all, he's a great ambassador for this breed, and while he might have a lot of energy, he has a willingness and a love that make him absolutely worth it. He's ready for his next life adventure! Maddox is $250 to adopt.

Bixby Bixby Bixby

Bixby is a 2 year old purebred Doberman. He is a looker of a dog, and at 80lbs still needs to put on a good 10-20 before he's finished filling out. He is such a soulful, wonderful dog around people, but he was clearly poorly socialized as a puppy, and doesn't know what to do when other dogs approach (other than to kind of act like an aggressive dummy.) He completely ignores them when they aren't in his space, so he makes an excellent walking partner (and would be phenomenal as a jogging buddy). His prey drive is way too high for cats or other small domesticated critters, but he is wonderful around children and just wants to bury his head in your lap. Bixby is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, flea and tick treated as well as dewormed. He is crate and house trained, knows some basic obedience (like sit), respects baby gates and LOVES to play fetch with a tennis ball. This gorgeous boy is looking for a family to love and be a part of. Could you make his forever better? He is $250 to adopt.

Miles Miles Miles

Miles is a 3 year old purebred shih tzu that was saved from the overcrowded municipal shelter. He has the most outgoing personality, and just wants to be with people as the life of the party. Miles is neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, microchipped, and with a non-shedding coat needs a family that will keep up with grooming. He seems to do well with crating, and we think with monitoring would be considered house trained. He does well with other dogs when properly introduced, and his reaction to rabbits leads us to believe he would get along fine with cats. He is happy and mellow enough he would do well in a family with children. He's just an easy guy looking for a family to love. Miles is $250 to adopt.

Wilbur Wilbur Wilbur

Wilbur is a 1 year old corgi/golden mix that is looking for a second chance at life. He has some odd dog/dog behavior (in that he can be really great with the dogs in the home, but outside of the home he is worried about protecting his people and doesn't like other dogs approaching.) This means he's not a good candidate for the dog park, but he's a great candidate for a family looking for a wonderful pet. Wilbur is crate and housetrained, neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, has been flea and tick treated, dewormed, and heartworm tested negative. He would do great in a home with kids. He is not a good dog for a home with livestock. He has so much love in his heart, and wants so much to give it to someone. Could it be you? He is $300 to adopt.

Ralphie Ralphie Ralphie

Ralphie is a 1 year old Welsh Terrier mix that was saved from an overcrowded municipal shelter. He does really well with other dogs, and would likely ignore cats. He is a bit nervous from his time in dog jail, so older kids would be better if he was going to a home with children. He wants very much to please, sometimes it just takes going a little slow to prove to him you aren't planning to strike. Ralphie is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, flea and tick treated, and has been dewormed. Ralphie appears both crate and house trained, and would be great for someone looking for a quiet companion who he could follow around and sometimes go on walks with.

Rocco Rocco Rocco

Rocco is a 2 year old pug/chihuahua mix that was rescued from an overcrowded municipal shelter. He acts like a social butterfly; he has never met a stranger. He seems to play and love like a dog much younger, and he's almost puppy like in his joy of life in general. Rocco does well with other dogs (especially those that want to play), but he seems rather inclined to chase cats. Age appropriate children would keep him entertained more than anything. Rocco would love going to the dog park, but he also enjoys sitting on your lap and cuddling under the covers. He is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, flea and tick treated as well as dewormed. He seems crate trained and with monitoring does well with not going in the house. He is $250 to adopt.

JD JD JD

JD is a 5 month lab mix puppy that was rescued with a broken leg that needed urgent medical attention. After 2 months of recovery with lots of love and care he is all cleared and ready to go to his forever home. While he still has a slight limp and his leg may always be a little turned out he doesn't let anything slow him down from romping around the backyard and getting into the typical puppy mischief. He would love a doggie friend or a family with children to play with. He is crate trained and is doing well with his house training. He is even learning to give cats their space (although he​ wants​ to be their friend more than anything). He's a fairly small goofball and shouldn't grow to be very big so would be a great companion in any home situation. JD is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, flea and tick treated as well as dewormed. JD is $300 to adopt.

Petunia Petunia Petunia

Parker Parker Parker

Parker is a 2 month old newfie mix puppy that was saved from a rural area where he had little chance of adoption. He's a happy dude that loves other people, loves other dogs, and probably would love a feline friend if they didn't claw his eyes out. He's a big lug of a puppy that still loves to chew and play, so while this breed is known for being laid back, don't expect mister mellow right from the start. Parker is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, flea and tick treated, and has been dewormed. He is working on crate and house training, and is currently in foster. Parker is $300 to adopt.

Echo Echo Echo

Echo is a 3 year old wolf hybrid/shepherd mix that was transferred from an unsafe situation from out of state. She gets along great with other dogs, and while she is currently cohabiting with felines, she likes to chase (and we want to make sure they stay safe, so a cat that knows better than try and stand off with a dog would be important.) She is working on crate and house training, knows some general obedience (like sit) and is one of the most beautiful animals we have ever rescued. She is currently about 58lbs, but is quite thin (and we expect her to put on another 10-15lbs as she fills out.) She is much more domesticated than not, and does not act wolfish (so if you were looking for a dog but enjoyed hybrids, this is your gal.) Echo is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, flea and tick treated, has been dewormed, and is heartworm tested negative. We all care deeply for this gorgeous animal, and are hoping she can find the most amazing next chapter in her life. The restrictions for owning a hybrid would be as part of your county, and if you have any HOA type issues. Please consider researching that before you submit an application. She is $250 to adopt.
