Welcome to K-9 Lifesavers!

K-9 Lifesavers, a 501c(3) non-profit organization, rescues homeless and abandoned dogs from high-kill shelters, owners who can no longer care for them, and other high-risk situations.

We work with dedicated volunteers, foster homes, local veterinarians, trainers, and kennels to provide loving temporary care while we find well-matched, carefully screened forever homes for each dog we take in.

We also serve as a support group to our adopters and all dog owners by providing ongoing education and resources for the well-being of their dogs, including the importance of proactive spay/neuter policies, positive behavior training, and good nutrition.

| March 13th, 2014 | Comments Off

The One Million Pibble March on Washington, DC will be the first national convergence on the Capitol of its kind. The intention of the March is to increase political and social awareness to discriminatory breed specific laws and pit bull neglect and abuse, including the dog fighting. The event is hosted by activist and comedian Rebecca Corry, activist, comedian and President of the Stand Up For Pits Foundation. She says, “we are marching on Washington DC in an effort create safe and humane communities for humans and pets.” Corry hopes to encourage federal funding of animal law enforcement and anti-cruelty programs. These are especially personal goals to her, since her adopted pit bull Angel was severely abused before being rescued. The March is a humans-only event. For additional information about this event, please read more here. We hope to see you there!
