My story

Estimated DOB: 2/14/15

Weight:





Harper is playful, extremely loving, and simply makes a person smile. He loves the girls so a female companion would suit him just fine. Harper is not good with cats so a home without cats is best.He is house trained, crate trained, and walks well on a leash. Harper is truly adorable and will melt your heart the minute you meet him.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Please view our animals and feel free to e-mail us with questions! We try and place our animals with families who would be a good mesh so that both the animal and the family will have a wonderful experience. You can visit our website to complete an application and e-fax it to us or mail it or e-mail it back. We will check references and set up a home visit once the animal is identified. The adoption fee is $100 - seniors always receive a 25% reduction in adoption fee as does a veteran or military person. Both discounts may be combined. If we deliver the animal to adopter and adopter is more than 60 miles away, we ask that transportation in the way of gasoline costs please be reimbursed to us (receipts will be provided). It is not mandatory but will help us defray costs of transport.

Go meet their pets

We visit Petsmart in Morganton, NC and Petco in Hickory, NC for regular Meet and Greet/Adoption events. We are also willing to set up "play dates" and meet and greets. Check out our facebook page (facebook.com/abetterlifeanimalrescue) or email us (abetterlifear@gmail.com) to find out what other local events we will be attending!

More about this rescue

A Better Life Animal Rescue, Inc. is a no-kill foster home-based rescue organization located in Burke County, North Carolina. We do not operate an animal shelter. We rely on volunteer foster families to provide temporary care for rescued dogs and cats until they can either be matched with loving, responsible, permanent adoptive families or until lost pets can be reunited with their own loving families. Our mission is to reduce pet overpopulation and to save dogs and cats whose lives are in jeopardy because of neglect, mistreatment, illness, injury or ignorance. We do this by reporting animal neglect, abuse, mistreatment or cruelty to proper authorities; rescuing pets that are living under unhealthy or unsafe conditions or are being held by activities that kill animals considered to be unadoptable; providing dedicated, loving, temporary foster care for rescued animals; arranging for professional veterninary care for sick or injured animals and for spay/neuter procedures; matching rescued pets with suitable adoptive families; promoting a 100% spay/neuter program; and sponsoring educational programs that focus on animal overpopulation and proper care for pets. Please check our pages for stories and events. And of course, please check all our animals that need homes.
