Holiday Fundraiser

Pine Tree Fundraiser

As part of our holiday fundraising efforts, this year Life is Better Rescue is offering "grow your own pine tree" boxes. Although these seedlings won't be ready to act as your Christmas tree anytime soon, they are a great way to give a gift that will continue to be enjoyed in years to come, while also providing medical services to our animals awaiting forever homes. With your tax deductible donation of $25, we would love to help you give the gift of hope this holiday season.

Each kit contains a plantable peat pot, a soil disc, and a package of pine tree seeds with wooden marker. Seeds take 2-3 weeks to sprout.

Trees are currently for pickup only.
