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 - Brody

Brody was adopted from us as a little puppy but his new owner hasn't done any socialization and couldn't handle him once he became rambunctious at 7 months old. He has been back in our care for couple weeks now (as of late May) and has made huge progress though. He is very loving, likes to snuggle and gives kisses. He is slightly timid when meeting new people, but warms up super fast and loves attention. His owner returning him said he was hyper and mouthy, but when he gets enough walks and exercise, he is actually medium/high energy and pretty laid back for pup his age. When he arrived it was clear that he never interacted with other dogs in the 5 months in his 'home' but since than he has made a huge progress. He is in multiple dog play groups in our kennel and loves to romp around with other dogs. He still gets little timid when another dog plays rough with him, but will just cower a little bit. He ignores dogs on leash, unless you let him say hello in which case he is very polite. We hope that second time around, this boy will find the happily ever after that we promised him.
