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 - Buford

Buford is an all around great guy! He adores people and is great with other dogs! His temperament is actually so great that the shelter often used him to help test the other dogs for friendliness. Buford is the nicest dog we have in our care right now. He is a lover who loves to give kisses and his tongue is always sideways with happiness. He loves to put his giant head in your lap and stare at you lovingly. He is great with people of all sizes. He is an all around perfect big boy who also gives hugs. He would be great dog for any situation. Click the photo for more info.
