Adoptable Pets

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.

Zory Zory Zory

Zory is a 1 year old yorkie mix that was saved from the municipal shelter. The setting was just too scary for a small, smart dog like she is, and so getting her into foster has made a world of difference. She is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and has been dewormed. She is working on crate and house training, and is relatively non-shedding. She would do best in a home with no kids under 6. She gets along great with other dogs and would be a great apartment or condo dog. She is $300 to adopt.

Maggie Maggie Maggie

Maggie is a 2 year old purebred miniature poodle who was rescued from the local shelter after it was determined she was just a bit too tiny to feel confident and show well there. She is an absolute love bug who does great with other dogs, would be fine with kids, and who appears house and crate trained when monitored. She is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and has been dewormed as well as groomed. She is non-shedding, so will need a home that will keep up with her coat. She is a dreamboat dog looking for her better forever, could it be with you? Maggie is $250 to adopt.

Vivian Vivian Vivian

Vivian is a 9 year old purebred miniature poodle that was originally saved from a puppy mill, adopted, and then returned because her family didn't find her to be a good fit. It turns out she needs to be on special Urinary Food (there will be a prescription sent home with her) and she has really come around now that she is feeling better. She is crate trained but still sometimes goes in the house (with close monitoring she rarely has accidents.) She gets along with other animals, and would be fine with kids (she just can be a bit nervous so ones that would respect her space would be best.) She is hypoallergenic and non-shedding, so someone who will continue maintenance with her coat is a must. Vivian is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and has been fully checked with a blood panel to make sure she is healthy for being a senior. She is a wonderful dog that deserves a 2nd second chance (and hopefully this time with a family that will keep her forever.) She is $200 to adopt.

Tinkerbelle Tinkerbelle Tinkerbelle

Tinkerbelle is a 10 month old purebred great dane that is the product of TERRIBLE breeding practices. Someone was trying to get a white great dane, and while they did it, they also condemned her to a life of special needs. She is mostly deaf (we believe there might be some tones she can hear that our outside of the human spectrum.) She also only has one functioning eye and can mostly see shadows. Despite all of this, Tinkerbelle is your average great dane puppy. She is all playful pup, and would thrive in a home with a dog that would play with her. She is interested in the smell of cats, but poses no danger as she could never catch one. She thrives with consistency and structure (meaning if you leave furniture where she learns it is, and she figures out the stairs, she has very few impediments and can navigate things pretty well.) She is fully house and crate trained when she figures out the property layout. She would do best in a home with minimal stairs and probably no little kids (unless they can handle that she might not see them and accidentally knock them over. She does fine with kids otherwise.) She is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, has been dewormed, flea and tick treated, and has been heartworm tested negative. She is a gorgeous girl with a fabulous personality, and deserves the very best in life (with a home that realizes that although she has special needs, it just makes her special, not extra needy.) Tinkerbelle is $300 to adopt.

Rue Rue Rue

Rue is a 1.5 year old english mastiff that currently weighs about 90lbs (although she could stand to put on a bit more weight.) She is a beautiful dog that gets along well with other dogs and is just looking for a second chance where she is not facing euthanasia because of overcrowding. She is spayed, microchipped, flea and tick treated, dewormed and has been heart worm tested negative. She is a very sweet dog that is still a GIANT puppy, and so someone patient and willing to work with a dog her size is a must. She is crate trained and is finishing up house training and general obedience. Rue would make someone a great forever friend and would be fine in a family situation with kids. She is $250 to adopt.
