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 - Hanz

This ginormous hunk of fluff is very sweet and playful. He's looking for a new family to love him and spoil him. Hanz is a very nice guy who likes to give a serious lean into his person and he just soaks up human attention. He is a friendly guy who lived with other dogs in the past but is now a little set in his ways, and would probably be happiest as your one and only. He is friendly with other dogs, is happy to greet dogs at the kennel and adoption events, but seems to just prefer to live in his own home with his own person. Hanz is a medium energy guy who would really love to have a family to spoil him rotten. He is food motivated and already knows to sit for treats. If you have a house that needs to be decorated with white fluff, and you have a big heart for a big dog, Hanz is the dog for you! Click the photo to learn more.
