K-9 Lifesavers is an all-volunteer, approved 501(c)(3), private non-profit rescue group, dedicated to saving the lives of homeless and abandoned dogs from high-kill shelters, and other high-risk situations. We rescue dogs and puppies from high- kill shelters and high-risk situations in Georgia, West Virginia, the Carolina’s, Tennessee, and Kentucky, where dogs are only held anywhere from three to seven days before euthanasia.
We do not have a shelter facility and hold adoption events every weekend, throughout the DC Metro area. K-9 Lifesavers works with dedicated volunteer foster homes, local veterinarians, trainers, and doggie daycare/kenneling facilities to provide loving temporary care while we find well-matched, carefully screened forever homes for each dog.
We serve as a support group to our adopters and all dog owners by providing ongoing education and resources for the well-being of their dogs, including the importance of proactive spay/neuter policies, positive reinforcement training, and good nutrition. We welcome you to explore our website, view our Adoptable Dogs, and all that we have to offer, then please join us in our continuing efforts to give them a second chance at life.
