We only ask that an adopter donate to help the next pet in need. Some adopters choose to make a one time adoption donation and others make an initial donation and continue to donate a little now and again to show their thanks and support our work.


Not every pet will fit into your lifestyle. Our adoption counselors will ask you many questions to determine which pet will do well in your home and which will not. This way we can be sure the pet you get will be the pet you want, to love for its lifetime!

Please, understand that we deal with homeless or unwanted animals. Many of our animals come from unknown backgrounds through local shelters. Most have medical or behavioral concerns that we have addressed as well as providing their well care. We were truly their last hope. The adoption process may seem time consuming, but we wish to maximize an animal's chance for a successful, permanent adoption. Adopting a companion pet is a major consideration and responsible pet ownership demands a considerable commitment. All we ask in return is that you love and care for this pet for its lifetime and make a donation that will allow us to help the next “friend” in need. Thank you for your interest in our animals.

If you are interested in meeting our adoptables please email Pam at Info@lastchanceatlife.org and ask for an adoption application. She will get back to you within 24 hours.  Thank you!

Come Visit Us

Some of our pets are in foster homes, and others are housed at at our kennel facility that is manned periodically throughout the day to take care of our animals.  If you want to meet a dog please e-mail us to schedule an appointment.  If you show up at this facility, there is a good chance no one will be there to help you.
