 A Better Place FAQs

Do You Have A Shelter?

No. We believe that long term kenneling is unhealthy for the animals, therefore A Better Place has volunteer foster families who care for dogs until a forever home is located. 

However, A Better Place is building a Pet Education and Adoption Center (PEAC) to serve the general public and assist homeless animals in the community. A Better Place will use the PEAC to temporarily house dogs awaiting foster homes, train dogs, provide a setting for the public to interact with the dogs, provide educational material, and host events for the community.  The facility is now 90% complete.  Learn more here.  See photos of the PEAC under construction.  Donate to help us complete construction.

What Vet Care Does A Better Place Provide Prior to Adoption?

All of our animals receive the following basic vet care prior to adoption: Rabies vaccination, Blood panel, Spay/Neuter, Heartworm prevention, Deworm/Panicure, Deflea/Frontline, 2 sets DHLPP.

A Better Place also provides any additional vet care necessary.  4 out of 5 of our animals need additional vet care when they come to us.  This vet care is completed prior to adoption and is included in our standard adoption fee. Recently, in addition to basic care, we have treated 5 heartworm positive dogs,  a broken leg,  3 females with pyometra, and miscellaneous infections, wounds and injuries.





Nick came to A Better Place in need of surgery to remove an eye and needed extensive treatment on the other eye in addition to his basic vet care.
