Adoptable Pets

Adopting through Life Is Better

  • We are foster based and therefore do not have a public facility to visit our animals. Meetings with our animals are set up with an approved adoption application.
  • We accept one application per household and only one dog may be listed.
  • We do not hold applications. If you are interested in adopting an animal, you must submit a new application even if you have been approved in the past.
  • Our cats and other animals are available for adoption directly through the Arvada PetSmart #252. Please do not use our online application for animals other than dogs. (See below.)
  • Our experience has taught us that animals adopted together are generally more difficult to train well and have a harder time adjusting and bonding with the new family, so we do not adopt out multiple cats or dogs, littermates or otherwise, at the same time. 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.
  • If you are looking for an Emotional Support Animal and your housing situation doesn't allow animals, please get the proper paperwork taken care of so we can verify with your landlord/housing management that you may have the animal.
  • We need to verify vaccination records for any current pets in your household. Please provide us with the contact information where we can check the vaccination status.
  • We do not have the capability to ship our animals. Also, we only adopt to Colorado residents.

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.

Before applying to adopt, please read the appropriate adoption agreement.

When you're ready to apply, fill out ouronline application.

The availability of our animals is always subject to change. We encourage you to check back.

Addie is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped with registration, dewormed, heartworm tested negative and on a preventative, and has had topical monthly flea/tick medicine.

Arlo

Arlo is an 8 month old dalmatian/pointer mix puppy (about 30lbs) who is looking for a forever home with someone who wants a wiggle noodle for a dog. He is all loves and kisses, and takes treats very gently. He also knows sit and is working on crate, house and general obedience training. Arlo adores other dogs and would love a home with kids, but he is also sometimes a bit enthusiastic about his joy, and could prove to be a knock over danger. Outside of that, Arlo is perfect for just about anyone who can give him some structure and rules while also enjoying his hilarious personality. Arlo is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped with registration, heartworm tested negative and on preventative, has been dewormed and given a topical flea/tick prevention. Arlo will brighten your life every moment he gets to love you. He is $400 to adopt.

Albert is a 7 month old anatolian mix puppy who weighs about 35lbs. He loves people, dogs and does great with cats, and has been working on house and crate training (and his foster reports he is doing awesome).

Albert is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped with registration, heartworm tested negative and on preventative, has been dewormed and given a topical flea/tick prevention. Albert is a prince of a dog that would be a fantastic hiking or walking companion, but best of all, would be a wonderful life long friend. Albert is $400 to adopt.
