About Our Rescue Group...
We have a No Kill mission to save the lives of homeless cats and dogs abandoned and/or placed in kill shelters, while also providing life saving programs and services to keep pets and their people together. Through outreach, education, and service, we provide cats and dogs with an opportunity to live their full life.
A NO KILL COMMUNITY
More than 500 communities around the United States are successfully running No Kill shelters, saving over 90% of the animals that enter their facility. Some of these shelters are managed by municipalities and some are run by private organizations. Some of these organizations take in thousands of animals a month, and others take in less than 100 a year. With the help and support of the community, and the No Kill mission at heart, communities are saving thousands of lives across the nation. We too can create a No Kill community within Baytown, Texas with your help and support. We believe that every cat and dog has a life to live; they deserve the chance to live their full life. We're here to provide that opportunity regardless of breed, treatable existing medical or behavioral conditions, age, or color. Together, we can create a No Kill community! To learn more about No Kill, and the impact that No Kill communities have on the lives of pets within their communities, visit the No Kill Advocacy Center or Best Friends Animal Society.

Our Adoption Process...
A LIFE TO LIVE'S ADOPTION PROGRAM:
All animals in A Life to Live's Adoption Program are currently in the temporary care of approved Fosters within our Foster Program. Our Adoption and Foster Programs are dependent on one another and were created to truly provide us with the services we needed in order to save the lives of animals that would otherwise be roaming the street, playing the chances in a traditional shelter, or worse. We highly appreciate the help of our Fosters, as they are the volunteers that make our mission a reality! We are always looking for more Fosters to join our team! Help us save lives! Visit our Foster Program page to learn more, or complete an online foster care application now!
Adoptable animals enter our Adoption Program through various ways. 90% of the animals that enter our program is through the rescue of at risk animals within the City of Baytown Animal Control facility, also known as City of Baytown Animal Services. We rescue cats and dogs based on foster availability, financial limitations, and administrative resources. The other 10% of the cats or dogs that enter our Adoption Program is through our Foster to Enroll Program. The public has the ability to complete an enrollment application for their rescue or owned pet, requesting the enrollment of that pet with the commitment and understanding that they will foster the pet until adoption. In turn, we provide veterinary care, life-saving and training resources, and adoption services for that pet, ensuring the best possible future them!
Because our animals are in the care of Fosters, our Adoptables can be seen at our upcoming mobile Adoption Events. If there is a specific pup/dog/kitten/cat that you'd like to meet, please contact us with the specific animal you're interested in seeing. Due to limited space at our mobile Adoption Events, not every Adoptable is with us at each event. Contacting us in advance with your specific interests is necessary. If you view our Event Calendar and don't see an adoption event in the time frame that you're looking to adopt, then please contact us. We are flexible and can setup meet-n-greets outside of our scheduled Adoption Events for approved applicants; the submission/completion of our online canine or feline adoption application is required for meet-n-greets outside of our scheduled events.
Our standard Adoption Fees for approved adoptions is $100.00 for spayed/neutered dogs and cats. At the time of adoption, our dogs and cats will be up to date on their vaccinations, microchipped, on heartworm preventative, have had received dewormer, and are spayed/neutered. We provide a copy of the medical records for the Adoptable to the Adopter through the successful completion of the adoption process. Our Adoption Fees may vary throughout the year depending on promotions, specials, or added programs, like our Seniors for Seniors Program.
Our Seniors for Seniors Program was established to honor and promote the companionship between senior citizens in our community and the senior dogs or cats that we have in our Adoption and Foster Programs. Through this program, we waive the Adoption Fee for senior citizens (60+ years) and canine/felines companions (8+ years) that have come together to provide love, care and compassion for one another as they enter the golden years of their lives!
