Puppy Mill Rescue: We Need Your Help

Five puppies in a cage after being rescue from Amish Breeder

Life is Better has participated in the rescue of over 2 dozen dogs from a closing Amish puppy mill. Dogs are predominantly nonshedding, ages 3 months to 5 years, and are of the doodle variety. At this time we are looking for homes to foster who have mill dog experience (shy, never been in a home before, not housetrained and unsure of people). We also need supply donations, monetary donations, and volunteer hours helping with paperwork, adoption prep, transport, vetting and grooming appointments, as well as event volunteers.

Want to do good in your neighborhood? Dogs will be arriving in stages during the month of February. Please sign up to help any way you can! Email
