How You Can Help

Donations, Adoptions and Fostering

L.I.F.E. for Pets is more than just a spay and neuter organization. Many members have opened their homes and hearts to homeless animals, and though being a foster parent is hard work, it is also very rewarding for us, the animal, and for the grateful new owners. Our volunteers love the animals in foster care as if they were their own, and therefore, we want to ensure that our animals are going to the best possible home through our approval process which includes an application, home visit, and a fenced in yard if adopting a dog or puppy. We sponsor regular remote adoptions at PetSmart in Lexington on Saturdays in an effort to get more homeless animals adopted.

Since our inception in March 2000, we have to-date saved the lives of well over 2,500 pets (dogs, puppies, cats and kittens) through our efforts. However, there are many more animals waiting for our help and we would love to have you join us in our efforts. If you would like to volunteer to foster an animal in your home, be on our fundraising committee, or help us spread the word about L.I.F.E. for Pets, please contact us at the address, phone number or email address below. We also welcome donations of food, dog houses, pet carriers and monetary donations. We are a non-profit organization and all donations are tax deductible.


The adoption fee for animals in foster care with L.I.F.E. for Pets is $100.00 to $125.00 for dogs and puppies and $50.00 for cats and kittens. Our fee covers their vet visit, spay/neuter operation, UTD on shots, microchip, deworming, heartworm and flea/tick prevention for dogs and puppies, flea prevention for cats and kittens. All dogs over 6 months are heartworm tested and cat/kittens are feline combo tested.
