Often the word “rescue” is tossed around loosely like yesterday’s salad.  “Thank you for rescuing me from the boring meeting!” Or “Phew, I was rescued from that miserable date!” With K-9 Lifesavers, rescue truly means the difference between life and death.

Many of the dogs who we save on a daily basis come from horrid conditions with little chance for a future, and some of them are extreme cases. Our Critical Care Fund was established to save these precious souls.  Every dollar donated to our fund goes directly to the support of saving those who need extraordinary care, including some that require special medical treatments. Sometimes that means removing tumors, orthopedic surgeries, heartworm treatments, dental surgeries, critical care, and so much more. Every donation to our Critical Care fund is truly lifesaving – these innocent creatures would not survive without the procedures and services the fund is able to support. We cannot thank you enough for saving the lives of our Critical Care survivors – you are heroes!!


Giving Tuesday

Thank you for your continuous support of our organization. Today is Giving Tuesday, the biggest fundraising day of the year for non-profit organizations, and once again we are turning to you for your assistance and support.
We desperately need your help to raise funds for our 2018 Critical Care Fund.

The success of today's fundraiser sets the tone for our rescue for 2018 and puts us on a path towards saving even more dogs next year. All the funds raised today go directly to our dogs as we are an all-volunteer-run organization. Please, consider making a donation - every little bit counts.

Many of the dogs who we save on a daily basis (including Chap featured above) come in desperate medical condition. Our Critical Care Fund was established to ensure that we can provide all the medical care these precious pups need. Every dollar donated to our fund goes directly to the support of saving those who need extraordinary care, including some that require special medical treatments. Sometimes that means removing tumors, orthopedic surgeries, heartworm treatments, dental surgeries, critical care, and so much more.  

Every month, we face several thousands of dollars in unexpected medical bills (in additions to the thousands that we already spend on spay/neuter, vaccinations and regular care). However, once we make a commitment to a dog from a shelter, we make a commitment regardless of how much it costs to get them to be healthy. The day we pull a dog from high kill shelter is the day they become ours and the day we make them a promise that we will ensure that they will have a happy and healthy future, regardless of the cost.

However, in order for us to be able to continue fulfilling our promise to these dogs, we need YOUR help.  Please help us succeed in 2018 by donating towards our Critical Care Fund fundraiser and help us save even more lives. Four paws at a time. Thank you for being a lifesaver.

Needing Extraordinary Care: Lady

Lady came to us from North Carolina shelter. Initially, the shelter asked us to save her because all signs indicated that she was pregnant. When she arrived in our care, we had our vet do an ultrasound and it turned out that Lady wasn't pregnant, but actually had cancerous mammary gland tumors that needed immediate removal to contain the cancer.  In addition, a heartworm test revealed that Lady was heartworm positive and needed expensive heartworm treatment. Lady has since undergone both her heartworm treatment and her tumor-removal surgery and our vet is optimistic that her prognosis is full recovery on both fronts and non-altered life expectancy. While Lady is looking for a foster or furever home, we are in desperate need in help with covering her medical bill. Between her heartworm treatment, ultrasounds, several vet visits and surgery, her bills stacked up significantly. Please, help us cover the cost of her surgeries, so we can make even more commitment to dogs like her who will otherwise die in high kill shelter.   Fundraising page link is: https://givingtuesday.razoo.com/story/Munabf or you can donate through our Paypal button located at the bottom of the page.


Needing Extraordinary Care: Indie

Indie is a sweetheart who hailed his way to us from Georgia. He is a petite guy who weights in at 35 pounds. Upon arrival, it became clear that he hasn't had a great experience with people (men in particular) and he is re-learning to trust people again. Not only that, this poor guy is also heartworm positive. Please help us offset the cost of his life saving heartworm treatment.   Fundraising page link is: https://www.razoo.com/story/Q4hn5g or you can donate through our Paypal button located at the bottom of the page.


Needing Extraordinary Care: Winky

Winky (previously Winston) arrived into our care and it became very quickly obvious that something was wrong with his eye. Several vet visits later and he is now scheduled for eye removal surgery at our vet this coming Thursday. He is a total sweetheart who gets along with everyone and despite being in pain, he has been nothing but friendly and kissy. Please consider helping us with the medical bill. It is desperately needed.  Fundraising page link is: https://www.razoo.com/story/A93trf# or you can donate through our Paypal button located at the bottom of the page.

Spike is a gorgeous fluffy cutie who found himself in high kill shelter in NC. He has arrived into our care 2 weeks ago and is a real sweetheart.
