Adoptable Pets

Click here for adoption application and agreement.

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.

Brodie Photo of Brodie Photo of Brodie

Brodie is an eight year old yellow lab looking for a forever where he can live out his golden years. This handsome boy was transferred to rescue from a local veterinary clinic after the family who raised him from puppyhood surrendered him for reasons not worth explaining. Brodie is happy, friendly, eager to please and is doing very well in his foster home. He wants nothing more than to be with his people and epitomizes a lab personality. Brodie suffers from non-destructive separation anxiety that was reinforced and untreated for many years in his prior home. He is doing well on medication to help stabilize his mood, but does get anxious when he is unable to be with his people and when they prepare to leave home. This manifests as panting, crying and some barking. Due to this behavior, we're looking for a special, patient forever family that lives in a detached single family home (so as to avoid neighbor conflicts) and ideally one that doesn't leave Brodie alone daily for extended periods of time. Given his age, stairs aren't really his friends, but his exercise requirements are also low. Brodie is neutered, microchipped with registration, heartworm tested negative and fully vaccinated. His adoption fee is $200.

Javier Photo of Javier Photo of Javier

Javier is a 3 year old mostly non-shedding Schnauzer mix that was saved from a municipal shelter where he was very scared. Javier is a quiet gem still coming out of his shell. He trusts and bonds quickly with children and women but is slow to warm up to men. Men will need to give him extra love and patience to win his heart. Javier enjoys the company of other dogs but is not interested in dog play, and would do well with a low energy dog companion. He enjoys walks, is mostly house-trained, and loves to curl up on his people's beds. He has been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and has been dewormed. Javier would love to be part of a family that keep him occupied as part of daily routine. Javier is $250 to adopt.

Jett Photo of Jett Photo of Jett

Jett is a two year old Lab/Pyrenees Mix who was transferred to us from a shelter partner in Oklahoma, where he was found as a stray and never claimed. This big boy loves all people - men, women and children. Jet has had no issues with any of the dogs he has encountered during his time with us, but he has a herding/prey drive and cannot go to a home with cats, chickens, livestock or other small animals to which he might have any sort of access. We never advocate unattended outdoor access, but given his size, Jett can easily get around a fence when temptation is combined with opportunity. He is housebroken, crate trained and would make an excellent hiking companion for an active family. Jett is neutered, vaccinated, wormed, flea/tick treated, heartworm tested negative, on heartworm prevention and microchipped with registration. His adoption fee is $250.

Jose Photo of Jose Photo of Jose

Jose is a sweet, six year old Chihuahua from a local municipal shelter that was far too scary for such a little dude. He blossomed immediately after leaving the shelter and is getting more social each day. He is spunky and learning ropes from the fellow dog in his foster home. Jose would likely do well in many home situations, but we're not sure if he has been around children, so given his age and size we'd recommend he go to a home with kids over ten years old. He has been neutered, vaccinated, flea treated, given heartworm prevention, Jose is $250 to adopt.

Kipp Photo of Kipp Photo of Kipp

Kipp is a 4 year old Pomeranian mix that was saved from death row. Kipp is a nice dog who just needed a chance out of the shelter environment in order to flourish and be ready for adoption. He has been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and has been dewormed. Kipp is working on all the obedience items (house training, crate training, general commands, etc.) and would love to be part of a family that keep him occupied as part of daily routine. Kipp is $250 to adopt.

Keebler Photo of Keebler Photo of Keebler

Keebler is a four year old Chiweenie mix that found himself in a municipal shelter due to circumstances completely unrelated to him. As with many dogs, he did not do well in a crowded, loud shelter environment. He has developed into a much happier dog now that he is in a foster home. Keebler gets along tremendously with other dogs and cats, and would thrive in a home with another dog. Though he is still working on his confidence, we think he would be fine in a home with older children (ten and up) who understand the need to approach him appropriately and respect his boundaries. Keebler is neutered, microchipped with registration, has been given heartworm preventative, and is flea treated and wormed. His adoption fe is $250.

Calloway Photo of Calloway Photo of Calloway

Calloway is a twelve year old senior miniature schnauzer that was left in the night drop at a local municipal shelter. Though he is certainly closer to the end of his life than the beginning, he has spunk and personality and deserves to end it with dignity, surrounded by people who love and cherish him. Calloway is mostly indifferent to other dogs, but has no problem with their company. He loves to trot around the backyard, take walks and curl up on a warm bed, and is housebroken and comfortable in his kennel. Calloway has had a dental, is neutered, current on vaccinations, wormed and has received a flea preventative. His adoption fee is $200.

Clifford needs an active household that will keep him engaged and exercised and continue to work on training. He is a crowd favorite and is housebroken with monitoring after spending time in a shelter/boarding environment. Clifford is neutered, microchipped, current on vaccinations, wormed, heartworm tested negative and has received a flea preventative. His adoption fee is $250.

Mack Photo of Mack Photo of Mack

Mack is a six year old dachshund that was transferred from a municipal shelter facility after arriving with some infected puncture wounds, likely due to an animal attack. The shelter treated him for his injuries and transferred him to us as he was incredibly frightened in a shelter environment. Mack comes out of his shell beautifully and does well with other dogs and was indifferent about our resident office cat. We're not sure if he has been around children, so given his age and size we'd recommend he go to a home with kids over ten years old. He seems to be housebroken and kennel trained. Mack has been neutered, vaccinated, wormed, flea treated, given heartworm preventative, and is microchipped with registration. He has also had a full dental cleaning with extractions. Mack is $250 to adopt.
