I am surprised to read all the negative reviews for this business. I used LIfeline back in 2001 and adopted a German Shep mis, 8 weeks old. I have had dogs my entire life and prior to this had always had pure breds. A friend turned me on to this place and honestly the dog I adopted here was "the best" dog I ever had. It was good natured, loyal, minimal medical issues (until this last year (13 years old). Unfortunately, he passed in January of 2013 and the family is considering adopting again.

I am concerned over the number of negative reviews I am reading. The process is a bit time consuming but considering you are picking up a family companion I think the wait is worth it. I would hope that someone wanting a pet would not hope to zip in and grab one. Again, prior to my experience with Lifeline, I was not a fan of adoption. My only hesitation of doing it again is that I don't think I could ever find another dog as great as I found the first time.

I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND THIS PLACE. A few people on here have compared it to a puppy mill, which I think is a little extreme, but I dont think this is a healthy place to adopt a puppy from. When I attended an adoption event, the puppies were kept outside in dirty pens with no food or water for hours, and it was windy so they were all freezing, despite a tiny heat lamp in the back of the kennels.

Im sure that the puppies arent left outside in the same pens all the time, as many of them would end up dying of exposure. There is no vet on site, and I dont recall them mentioning the name of the vet they take their puppies to. I would be interested in finding out more about the reputation of the vet or clinic that treats their puppies.

The staff is not much help, most of them are young volunteers (like 16 years old) and obviously not too knowledgeable about how to help a family pick out the proper puppy for their personalities, lifestyle, and needs. I also find it strange that no one at Lifeline Rescue ever answers their phone, and they only respond to emails selectively.

I spoke to a local, well known and well run shelter, and they agreed that Lifeline Puppy Rescue is at best a sketchy place to adopt from, as did my veternarian.

If you go to an adoption event and are overwhelmed with all of the cute little puppies and have to take one home, please be very careful about the one you pick. These puppies are generally not healthy because of a combination of where they came from (the shelters Lifeline rescues them from) and Im guessing unclean living conditions based on what I saw at the adoption event. I would suggest Lifeline be more open about their behind the scenes treatment of the puppies so we can all see how they are treated instead of just telling everyone to volunteer. No one will volunteer at a place where they believe puppies are being improperly cared for.
While their price is seemingly good, including a $100 spay/neuter rebate, please keep in mind you will most likely end up spending several hundred dollars more in vet bills and medical treatment because these puppies are not born into healthy conditions. I appreciate that Lifeline is trying to save puppies that would be otherwise euthanized, but I feel like they are not taking full responsibility for the consequences of adopting out puppies that have not been brought back to full health. These puppies need to receive a lot of medical care, they also need to learn to be handled by people, and properly socialized before they should even be considered for adoption.

I would recommend going to a different rescue or shelter if youre wanting to rescue a puppy, this is not the place to help a puppy in need, Lifeline does not put in the amount of effort it takes to rehabilitate these poor puppies :(

I adopted a puppy this week from this rescue...I had a few problems. The location was in the middle of an old ranch, puppies all in outdoor pins. The pins were not protected from the elements. The pins had gravel and no water for the puppies. They mentioned they kept puppies away from other puppies in order to reduce exposure of disease.

Our puppy on the 3rd day home began throwing up and the runs. While we were waiting to bring our puppy home we had to sit through there hour long meeting. They mentioned "decline parvo test at vet...95% of the time its a parasite." THIS IS A LIE. our puppy had parvo, this can kill puppies. We caught it very early luckily! Our vet mentioned they see more puppies from their with parvo than anything. Also, they are not up on their shots.

We called in concern to just tell them about this problem and to let other families know. Their response was nothing caring. They simply said, "you can bring the dog back"

HORRIBLE PLACE, THESE PUPPIES NEED OUR HELP BUT DO NOT SUPPORT THIS PLACE TO CONTINUE! THINK TWICE BEFORE GOING HERE!!!!!!!!!! SAVE YOURSELF THE HUGE VET BILL OF OVER $1,000 AND THE HEARTACHE!

This "Rescue" is a glorified puppy mill...HORRIBLE

1. its a zoo: very unorganized...we were there for other 3 hours with very little help or answers.

2. Puppies are all most likely sick...parvo runs wild through these puppies, our puppy ended up having parvo. VET BILLS INSANE! we were not going to take her back because they could not tell us what they would do to help her.

3. they showed little to no concern about this problem

4. they fill the puppies with 7-10 medicines to prevent illness when in reality it causes tummy issues.

5. the puppies stay in outdoor pins with 3-6 other dogs.

6. the phone number....no one will EVER ANSWER!

DO NOT ADOPT YOUR DOG HERE....SUPPORT LOCAL SHELTERS OR BREEDERS, THESE DOGS ARE SICK AND ITS NOT FAIR TO THESE PUPPIES! Stop this business by no one supporting them!

I would like to address some of the complaints people have about Lifeline.
As kayla c stated, it can get hectic on adoption weekend. There are a lot more people customers than volunteers. This can be very overwhelming and we appreciate your patience. Also, it was explained in the adoption that we don??t know what types of puppies these are. They come from various shelters and we never see their parents so it is a guess as to their breed. The adoption process does take some time but that is because we need to make sure everyone gets all the information about their puppy.
natasha f, this is definitely NOT a puppy mill. These are mixed breads. (You even noticed) Puppies that come from puppy mills are pure breeds, not mixed breeds. We rescue these puppies from less desirable shelters that are not equipped to care for puppies. These puppies do have blankets, toys, food and water and they are not kept out in the cold. What you witnessed was our adoption day. We do bring the puppies out in a kennel and give them a blanket with heating lamps to keep them warm. What you don??t see is we do bring them inside at night and during the week so making a claim that they ??live outside? is totally false. We also have people that foster some puppies and bring them back on the weekend so they could be adopted. Maybe you should volunteer there and you could see just how well these puppies are cared for.
Carynn L. , as stated before, these puppies do come from less desirable living conditions. As a matter of fact, we just rescued 11 puppies that were scheduled to be euthanized because the shelter they were at couldn??t care for them. If we have a puppy that is sick, we do take them to our vet. We actually have several vets that we take our puppies to. The day we get these puppies back to the rescue, they are ALL started on vaccines. These puppies do get great medical care. Since you have never been there, come out and volunteer for a few hours and meet the people that work there. You will see that they are NOT rude and uncompassionate.
M R. I am sorry for your loss. It is sad to lose a puppy. It??s very possible that the puppy has ingested the rat poison prior to Lifeline rescuing him. Lifeline does not use rat poison.
manda A and Doran G. This was gone over in the adoption process, ??do not let your vet test for Parvo because we have already vaccinated your puppy for Parvo. It will come up as a false positive?. Since these puppies did come from less desirable living conditions, it is possible they were sick and the incubation period for the virus is 3-7 days. This is why we start the puppies on vaccines as soon as we get them.
When you buy a pet at a pet store, 99% of those pets come from puppy mills. When you adopt a pet at a shelter or rescue, you are freeing up space for one more animal to be saved. Please make sure you spayed or neuter your pet. There are lots of low cost clinics that do a great job and it??s cheap. Lifeline puppy rescue is a wonderful place to get your new fur friend. We are a 100% no kill shelter. If there are complaints about Lifeline, I suggest that you volunteer there and just see how well these puppies are cared for.

There no better place to get a mix breed puppy! I have adopted 2 of the 4 dogs I have ever had from Lifeline. I am so impressed with the puppies, staff and the work they do I started to volunteer and still do after 3 years! I have gone along on trips to the shelters in New Mexico. I have seen 1st hand the large numbers of "unaltered" stray and abandoned dogs in the rural areas. That explains the number of young puppies they have. The work Lifeline does is amazing! When local people call to surrender puppies. Lifeline will only take them if the mothers owner let Lifeline bring the mother in to be spayed at Lifeline's expense! Lifeline's goal is to not be needed, a world where all puppies have a home BEFORE they are born.

I have been wanting a puppy for some time and after weeks of harassment, my boyfriend finally decided to get me a dog. He had checked into lifeline puppy rescue and we went when they were having an adoption event. It was a little crazy when we were picking the puppy out, because everyone was running around like chickens with their heads chopped off. But we had found my puppy (kohda) and then the "fun" began. What shouldve been a short process turned into what seemed like hours of waiting, just to pay for Kohda. The Staff was very pleasant and answered whatever questions they could, which was not much (Granted they told us what they knew). They told us the dog was a hound, which is not true... hes a pit/kataula mix.However, I am thankful that he was not a sick puppy and NOTHING was wrong with him, and they were very current on his shots and gave us all the paperwork that we needed. All in all, kohda is the best and sweetest dog EVER and i would def. return for my next puppy there (which i plan to soon). But i will never do an adoption event there again nor would i recommend it...TO MUCH MADNESS! ,

We have adopted three dogs from LifeLine.
There have been complaints on here (rat poison, specifically) about the puppies not being properly cared for. This rescue drives to multiple shelters in multiple states to rescue puppies that would otherwise be put down. One of our dogs is from Alamosa, and two are from New Mexico (Los Lumos and one from Farmington).
We lost one of our dogs (to no fault of the shelter) when she was two to kidney disease.
Our most recent puppy (Lucius) did have parvo when we brought him home. I contacted the rescue and they checked his littermates/kennel mates and notified those who brought puppies home. Parvo (and parvo vaccines and diagnosis) and hit and miss... we were lucky enough that our little guy pulled through. We were also grateful for the free pet insurance (up to $500) that came with the adoption. We had to pay relatively little out of pocket.
As to the conditions of the rescue. We have only ever adopted from this rescue in the winter (two puppies in December, one in January). It has been cold when we've been up there, and the puppies are outside, but there are heaters, food, water and houses available to the puppies. The chainlink is covered on the top and on the sides with blankets and tarp to keep the wind out.
We went to several shelters before we settled on this one.
The staff is very helpful and in our experience the puppies are very happy, and much better off.
I also believe the shelter was only acting in the best interest of the dog when they refused to send home a possible pit mix with a family. Had this dog been confiscated in the city of Aurora it would have been put down.

THIS PLACE IS A JOKE.
FIRST OFF:
1. This place looks like a puppy mill in itself, two trailers and all dogs/puppies live outside
2. Puppies were in cages totally exposed to elements. No blankets, toys, food, or water.
3.All puppies were covered in mud and each litter were HUDDLING TOGETHER FOR WARMTH UNDER ONE HEAT LAMP THAT IS IN EACH CAGE
4.The staff avoided ANY questions involving the puppies whereabouts. Such as "Where did this litter come from?" "Do you know anything about the owners?"
5. ALL OF THE PUPPIES looked like they were suffering from an upper respiratory infection, which makes sense since they live outside

My boyfriend and I drove over an hour for this specific puppy we saw on the website. A gorgeous tan BOXER/Cattle Dog mix.Our puppy was there and we fell in love, did the paperwork and as SOON as we were getting ready to pay the guy said it was a PIT MIX and that we lived in Aurora which it was banned. To which I said "Your WEBSITE and the CAGE CARD says it is a BOXER mix" He went and spoke with the so called owner, and all though there was no proof it was a pit mix he would not let us take her home.
My boyfriend and I left completely heartbroken and angry. We dont understand how the rest of the litter this puppy came from was sold, but yet we were told we could not because suddenly it may be a pit mix.

8/3/10, This past May my family and I went to the LifeLine Puppy Rescue to look at the puppies. We immediately fell in love with a little male Yellow Labradore/Shar-Pei mix we named Dutch and a little female Dobberman mix we named Bliss. It was a wonderful experience for all of us, especially for my 2 year old daughter. The staff was incredibly helpful, knowledgeable, kind and great with the puppies. Our puppies are strong, healthy, and full of energy and they have been since the day we brought them home. They were already well socialized, well taken care of and healthy when we first met them. I cannot complain about single thing about our experience with LifeLine Puppy Rescue. Our life is pretty crazy now with two young pups, but we couldn't imagine life without them and I would like to thank this wonderful Rescue for the wonderful gifts they have given us!

I haven't purchased a puppy from this place, but I've known 2 people who have and both had poor outcomes. Both had sick puppies, one died, and both had downright AWFUL customer service. They were told that it was pretty much their fault their dogs got sick and that it wasn't the shelter's fault. In fact, they were quite rude and incompassionate. Adopting from a rescue is wonderful, but steer clear of this one and adopt from one who actually cares for the pets they are supposed to be rescuing.

Our 10 wk old puppy died two days after adopting her. She became paralyzed all of a sudden and within about 40 minutes she went into cardiac arrest and died. The vet found rat poison in her system. We were told that it takes 4 to 10 days for rat poison to have this effect on an animal. How would she have gotten into rat poison? We are so heartbroken and wish we had answers as to what kind of irresponsible person would make that somehow available to such an innocent creature. Please beware of this happening to your precious pet. We never saw this coming and it happened so fast.

We adopted a puppy from lifeline and it was HORRIBLE!!! Within in 3 days of getting her home she was diagnosed by a vet with parvo in which case we called them to tell them and the lady guaranteed that it wasn't parvo and when we took her back her litter mate was also being returned with PARVO. We were assured that we could get her back once healthy again and came to find out they had given her to another person after telling us we could get her back. Would never go back or recommend them to anyone. If you do go there to adopt please be careful of parvo we got a lot of contradicting information on their vaccines for parvo. BE CAREFUL!!!!

We got a new pup from here that was obviously not checked out at all because 2 days after we got him home, he was diagnosed (by our vet) with Parvo. He was so sick; it was a terrible thing to have to see. After attempted treatment from our vet, our little pup died. Please, please, please make sure Lifeline, or whoever you get a puppy from, checks for Parvo. It's fast and inexpensive to test for and it will save you so much heart ache.

We adopted a puppy in August 2006 from Lifeline and are so grateful to all those who made the experience so enjoyable and rewarding. Thanks for your efforts on behalf of all the puppies who need to find loving homes. We can't imagine not having Archie in our lives. He's awesome and Lifeline Puppy Rescue is the best!

We purchased our baby puppy here and have been so happy with them. These people are the angels of the doggy world, recueing all the little puppies that might have been put to sleep otherwise. The cost for adoption is very reasonable and they get their first shots. They also refund you some money if you get your dog neutered by a certain time!!

PROS: Great people. Lots of info on puppy ownership
CONS: none
