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.

Joplin Photo of Joplin Photo of Joplin

Joplin is a three year old deaf Great Dane looking for a very special home. She arrived to rescue nearly a year ago and was terrified of the entire world, with no idea what a warm, comfortable home was like. With patience, Joplin got the hang of the indoors and being with humans and she has embraced it with her whole being - she loves being part of a family! She is very smart, engaged and active. Joplin would love to have large dog companions to play with, but would also be fine as an only dog. She adores human attention. Joplin has plenty of energy to run in the yard, go on walks and chase a ball, but also loves to snuggle on the couch; she is also crate trained. She will need a little guidance with rules of the house but she learns quickly and wants to please her humans. Joplin's deafness has very little effect on her ability to learn routines or commands (she knows several signs already), but it will require a patient adoptive family. We'd love to find her an adopter that has experience with Great Danes and deafness (or other atypical needs). Joplin is spayed, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm tested negative, microchipped with registration and wormed. Her adoption fee is $250.

Percy Photo of Percy Photo of Percy

Percy is a 2.5 month old lab mix and was saved from a local municipal shelter. He is a classic lab puppy full of energy and loves to play with anyone or animal that will engage. He's going to be a big dog. He hasn't shown any aggression even when cats have had enough of him trying to get him to play and swipe at him. Percy absolutely loves kids, from baseball practices to walking the kids to and from school, he gets loved on everywhere we go. He is still a bit cautious about some adults, seems more with men or if someone is walking a fair distance behind us. This will most likely eventually pass as the first few days he would stop almost paralyzed in fear seeing any adult walking off in the distant. He has been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and has been dewormed. Percy 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. Percy is $300 to adopt.
