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.

Chinook Chinook Chinook

Chinook is a 1 year old spitz/shiba ing mix that was saved from a municipal shelter in Kansas where she was likely looking at euthanasia. She is very smart but doesn't like people coming at her face as it makes her nervous (pet her sides though and she will lean right in.) She is good with other dogs and seems mostly indifferent to cats. Chinook is about 40 pounds and has a beautiful dusky red double coat (meaning Colorado winters are her wonderland.) Chinook is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, flea and tick treated, dewormed, and has been heart worm tested negative. She is house trained and working on being more comfortable in her crate. She has been living in foster with a professional trainer (so it means she is totally working on obedience and some of those issues that make her a little nervous.) She would make an excellent dog to do back country hiking with as she will need an active home that can provide her with consistent exercise and stimulation. She is a beautiful girl looking for a second chance at life - could it be with you? Chinook is $300 to adopt.

Sugar Plum Sugar Plum Sugar Plum

Sugar Plum is a 2 year old that looks like a pit or pit mix to us; however Denver deemed her to be that of an allowed breed and we have a letter that states she is safe to live in the city and county of Denver (and can receive a letter of determination that is good for the rest of her life.) Sugar Plum is not good with cats, but is a sweet gal who gets along great with dogs of all sizes, does well with people of all ages, and would make a fantastic dog to add to any family. She is spayed, vaccinated, dewormed, and is microchipped with registration.

Reynolds Reynolds Reynolds

Reynolds is a 9 years young purebred long hair chihuahua that came from the municipal shelter. He had a dental, and now only has 5 teeth (however, he now has outstanding oral hygiene). He will likely need to be on a soft diet for the rest of his life. He likes other dogs and would be fine with cats (he is a tiny dude mostly made of fluff and weighs 7 pounds). He is crate trained and does pretty well when he is monitored with house training. Reynolds is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and dewormed. He really just wants to sit in your lap or cuddle with you under the covers. He would be a perfect companion for someone home a lot, or living in a condo or apartment as his exercise needs are minimal. He is a great little guy who deserves a family who will love him as much as he loves back. He is $200 to adopt.
