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 lives.

Our partners are vital to our continued success in saving lives!

Our partners are truly amazing; 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.

“Saving the lives of all animals is something I committed to many years ago. I’ve always been a huge animal lover and, as a committed vegan, I believe in showing care and compassion for all types of creatures. They each deserve the right to a good life. I look forward to working with A Life to Live to help animals find the loving homes they deserve.” – Lanette Cook, owner

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. To learn more about providing your loved pet with a Found Animals microchip, contact us today, or view our #ChipToSave page to learn about free microchipping opportunities in our community.

"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
