Adoptable Pets

Adopting through Life Is Better

  • We are foster based and therefore do not have a public facility to visit our animals. Meetings with our animals are set up with an approved adoption application.
  • We accept one application per household and only one dog may be listed.
  • We do not hold applications. If you are interested in adopting an animal, you must submit a new application even if you have been approved in the past.
  • Our cats and other animals are available for adoption directly through the Arvada PetSmart #252. Please do not use our online application for animals other than dogs. (See below.)
  • Our experience has taught us that animals adopted together are generally more difficult to train well and have a harder time adjusting and bonding with the new family, so we do not adopt out multiple cats or dogs, littermates or otherwise, at the same time. 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.
  • If you are looking for an Emotional Support Animal and your housing situation doesn't allow animals, please get the proper paperwork taken care of so we can verify with your landlord/housing management that you may have the animal.
  • We need to verify vaccination records for any current pets in your household. Please provide us with the contact information where we can check the vaccination status.
  • We do not have the capability to ship our animals. Also, we only adopt to Colorado residents.

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.

Before applying to adopt, please read the appropriate adoption agreement, found here. When you're ready to apply, click here to fill out our online application.

The availability of our animals is always subject to change. We encourage you to check back.

Pip

Pip is a very sweet and very well-behaved two year old Hound, but unlike many hounds she is a quiet girl! She's extremely well-mannered on leash, and in general loves other dogs and humans. Pip is not bothered by cats, nor will she bother them - in fact, she has a low reactivity level, but is still playful, spunky and happy! She is very people-oriented and would prefer a household with someone home much of the time, and would really benefit from another dog in the home to reduce her stress when left alone. In her foster home, she sleeps through the night in her crate with no issues or complaining. Pup loves water, and playtime; routine exercise is important for this sweet girl. She is so eager for human affection and approval and would dearly love a family to treasure her. Pip is spayed, fully vaccinated, microchipped with registration, wormed, and on heartworm prevention. Her adoption fee is $300.
