Partner with us
Our partners are vital to our continued success in saving lives. They are an asset to our organization. Some donate food for the animals in our programs, while others provide space for our adoption events. A few sponsor and host fundraisers to support our continued growth, and some take photos of the events. Our partners support our goals and development toward saving more lives. We are fortunate to have the support of these groups and individuals. Their passion for serving the community and providing support for the animals is inspirational.
As a No More Homeless Pets Network Partner, we are committed to ending the killing of pets within our local municipal shelter, in line with Best Friends' mission and the goal of obtaining a no-kill nation by 2025. "The mission of Best Friends Animal Society is to bring about a time when there are No More Homeless Pets. We do this by helping end the killing in America's animal shelters through building community programs and partnerships all across the nation. We believe that by working together we can Save Them All. Through its No More Homeless Pets Network, Best Friends maintains lifesaving partnerships with more than 1,000 animal rescue organizations, spay/neuter groups and animal shelters throughout the country — all of them working to help homeless pets and create local no-kill communities."
"Found Animals Microchip Registry is a free nonprofit service dedicated to reuniting lost pets with their families. At Found Animals we’re for pets, not for profit. A 501(c)(3) founded by Dr. Gary Michelson, Found Animals believes that getting home should be free. We are pet owners and animal professionals ourselves, so we understand the fear and anxiety of losing a beloved furry family member and the frustration at the inability to get a pet home due to lack of identification. That’s why we have created a microchip system that works for both pet owners and animal professionals and offers lifetime registration for microchipped pets. We don’t think cost should be an obstacle to protecting pets, so our high quality microchips and scanners are affordable and access to the Found Animals Registry will always be 100% free."
"Working for my family throughout my time in college, I refined my passion for photography and design in order to market our restaurants and family business to the community. These businesses gave me the opportunity to specialize in restaurant branding and the flexibility to create other client pieces. It has also given me the chance to donate my skills to area animal shelters in order to promote their philanthropies, such as A Life to Live. Since I cannot adopt all of the dogs, as I would like to, I use my creative skills to donate effective and professional marketing material. This is my way of contributing in hopes of allowing them to spend their budget towards something else that will aid in their success rate of adoptions. My two dogs, Nala Bean (top right) and Sadie Jean (bottom left) have made such a positive impact in my life, they are without doubt part of the family. Every animal deserves to be loved unconditionally and spoiled, of course. I am proud to donate my time and services to A Life to Live to give every animal a chance to find their forever home." - Kayla Caddell, owner of Kay Creative Co

Papa John's Pizza
Through its Papa’s Pets initiative, Papa John’s is offering a free pizza to anyone who adopts a cat or dog through A Life to Live. Papa’s Pets is an effort in the Greater Houston area to raise awareness of the importance of pet adoption to save lives.
“I read something that said Houston has 1.2 million stray and abandoned animals at any given time. That number just blew me away. I had no idea it was such a huge problem. So I thought, how can we help? We wanted to get involved somehow,” said Adam Garza, director of marketing for Papa John’s Houston.
Promoting the collaboration between A Life to Live and Papa John’s are (from left) Magan Gonzales, A Life to Live co-founder and program director; Phebe Hayes, Papa John’s Baytown store manager; Adam Garza, director of marketing for Papa John’s Houston; and Preslie Cox, A Life to Live marketing coordinator and box-top flyer designer.
“I am a native Baytonian of 27 years. For as long as I can recall, I have had a passion for design, photography and creativity. Whether music, design, drawing or painting, I enjoy exploring and expressing myself through creative outlets. I attended Texas State University in San Marcos and double-majored in Communication Design and Photography. In 2010 I started my own photography business, Preslie Cox Photography. I specialize in high school senior portraits but offer other sessions including family, children and pet portraits. In addition to managing my photography business, I work closely with my family to create marketing materials and social media content for our restaurant, Rooster’s Steakhouse, located in Baytown. Ever since I was little I have had a strong passion for animals and caring for them. I was grateful when Jay started A Life to Live in 2014 because I have always wanted to help animals in our community and felt Baytown was in need of this kind of organization. Being a creative entrepreneur has allowed me to donate my photography and graphic design services to A Life to Live and help animals in the program get the exposure they need to find the forever homes they deserve. Every animal deserves a loving and happy life. Since I am unable to house as many as I’d like, I am proud to contribute my creative services and be a part of this amazing organization.” – Preslie Cox, owner, Preslie Cox Photography

The world is full of interesting people, each with a unique story to share. Since 2014, The Baytown Project has provided glimpses into the lives of those who live, work or play in the greater Baytown area, one person — one story — at a time. The goal is that by sharing their tales of struggle, triumph and hope, it creates a better understanding of who we are as a growing, diverse community.
“Important members of our community are the dogs and cats who count on us to provide them with safe and loving homes. We have one of each at our house. We adopted our dog, Freddie, from Baytown Animal Shelter. And our cat, simply named Kitty, was a neighborhood find. Through regular posts on The Baytown Project, I am happy to help A Life to Live find forever homes for many more animals.” — David Berkowitz, The Baytown Project
"We believe in giving back to local nonprofits that strive to make a difference in our community. A Life to Live is one of those charities! They continue to make a difference in the lives of homeless animals in our community and we commend their efforts! In order to assist their efforts, we donate a percentage of proceeds from our pet related products, like personalized doggie door hangers! We also accompany them at some local events where we donate a percentage of all proceeds from that specific event. As a nonprofit, we know that every penny will help some pitty or kitty out there!" - Caprisa Lemoine, partner at Tickle Me Pink Boutique
