We are not a first-come-first-served source of adoptable pets and we do not do on-the-spot adoptions. We screen all prospective adoptive families for suitability before we will release one of our pets for adoption. We do not consider adoption requests until we receive completed, written adoption applications. We often receive numerous applications on individual pets. We then work to choose the best fit between adoptive families and pets, keeping the needs of the pet foremost in our minds. We always require a home visit with prospective adoptive families prior to final approval and release of a pet. We try to limit our travel time for home visits to a two-hour driving range (about 75 miles) from Morganton, NC.

Any of our adoptable pets that are more than six months old will have been spayed or neutered prior to their release for adoption. When we release one of our pets for adoption, all of its vaccinations and worming treatments will be up-to-date and it will be current on preventive medications. All of our pets come with health guarantees from our veterinarian.

We offer 25% discounts on the adoption fee to senior citizens and to active,
reserve, separated or retired veterans.

Diamond is a sweet, young Boxer mix with a slender structure. She loves to run! Her favorite toys are balls of any kind and tough toys with squeakers inside. She also loves any kind of food puzzle and will quickly tell you which one she wants to use.
She has a high energy level. Although she craves love and attention, and loves people, she doesn't quite understand manners yet, and can take a little time to warm up to new people. She loves other dogs, but does not know how to interact well. She can be skittish at times and has some separation anxiety.  However, Diamond has learned how to be comfortable in a crate.
She is eager to please and a very quick learner! If you can help Diamond out by fostering her, or would like to adopt her, please contact us by email (abetterlifear@gmail.com) or voicemail (828-584-6767).
