As an all-volunteer organization, K-9 Lifesavers is entirely dependent on the generosity of the community.

We depend on generous, caring individuals to provide time and expertise. Your involvement is key to our ongoing success.

We can’t thank you enough for whatever support you can give.  So, consider yourself puppy-kissed!

Adoption Counselors

Our adoption counselors work to find the best possible homes for our dogs. Tasks include:

  • Interview potential adopters and coordinate home visits, landlord checks, and vet checks
  • Educate new pet owners on proper vetting, nutrition, socialization, and exercise
  • Educate new adopters on additional resources found on our website
  • Attend adoption events

Time commitment varies depending on the number of dogs you AC. An average size load is five dogs per AC. Each application takes about 30 minutes to one hour to interview, conduct the checks, and coordinate home visits.  Training is provided.

Fundraising & Marketing

If you have experience as a fundraiser or are experienced in marketing, we can use your help.

  • Flier circulation announcing special events–posting them & keeping them current.
  • Social media marketers
