L.I.F.E Animal Rescue’s mission is to place homeless dogs and cats into loving, forever homes. We take special care to match the right home with the right pet, ensuring a lifetime of love for both the pet and the adopter. To ensure the best matches are made, we have a system that has proven effective in determining the best homes for our animals. Our thorough process helps ensure all our animals go into appropriate, safe, loving forever homes.

There is a three-step process for adoption:
Step one:
Browse our cats and dogs online or come to our weekly adoption events to meet our animals:


Step two:
Visit us at our weekly adoption event at PetsMart. If you are unable to come to PetsMart, please contact us at to set up a meeting.

Step three:
After an animal has been selected, you are asked to complete an application that tells us about you and your lifestyle, training beliefs and background with animals. If the application is approved, we conduct a home check for every potential adoption, ensuring the animal will be living in a safe environment.

Our donation fee is:

Dogs are $400  Puppies are $450
Cats are $125
Both dogs and cats are altered, microchipped, dewormed, up to date on vaccinations, and cats are tested for FELV. We also do blood panels on our overseas dogs to ensure health before flight.

There are two ways to complete an application.  You can  submit your application online or download the form here and email it back in to
