Welcome to K-9 Lifesavers

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.


K-9 Lifesavers is dedicated to finding homes for shelter dogs. We are an all volunteer organization, and provide loving care until each dog finds their forever home


As an all-volunteer organization, K-9 Lifesavers is entirely dependent on the generosity of the community.


Our foster parents give dogs a second chance at life. Their work makes a smooth transition into adoptive homes possible.


As a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, we depend on donations to help save dogs’ lives.

Featured Dog - Vern

This energetic young guy is looking for an active family to take him on fun adventures and spoil him with LOVE. He's very friendly, active, playful...good with other dogs and human, not sure about cats. Looks like he's had a small injury to his hind leg, but it hasn't stopped him a bit!
