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 - Joy

Joy is a joy to be around! She loves to give kisses and her tail never stops wagging. She is an energetic girl who would make a great hiking and running buddy. Joy loves other dogs and plays great with them in her doggie play group at the kennel. This girl is vocal when she is happy so would do better in a single family home rather than an apartment. Joy is smart, food motivated, and highly trainable.
