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.

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.

Crosby Photo of Crosby Photo of Crosby

Crosby is a six year old Chihuahua that found himself in a loud, local municipal shelter. He is beloved in his foster home, where he lives with other dogs, cats and teenagers. He is not the least bit stand-offish and wants whatever lap is closest to him. He's a tiny little guy, so we'd like to see him go to a home with older children who can appreciate his very tiny stature. Crosby has been neutered, microchipped, is current on vaccinations, wormed and has received a flea preventative. He had dental work done in his past life and is missing many of his teeth. His adoption fee is $250.

Fozzie Photo of Fozzie Photo of Fozzie

Fozzie is a one and a half year old Jack Russell Terrier mix that found himself at a local municipal shelter, where he was terrified. He was surrendered when his owner was overwhelmed by too many dogs. Fozzie hasn't had the benefit of much socialization out in the world, but is making great strides in his foster home and coming out of his shell quickly. He desperately wants to please and is housebroken with monitoring and use of a crate. We know with a little more time and patience he will blossom into a tremendous, even spunkier little guy. Fozzie has been neutered, microchipped, is current on vaccinations, wormed and has received a flea preventative. His adoption fee is $250.
