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.

The One Million Pibble March on Washington, DC will be the first national convergence on the Capitol of its kind.

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.

Maryland’s first family of martial arts teaches life lessons along with physical strength

| August 31st, 2013 | No Comments »

In the world of the ninja, the Elrod family is an impressive force. Julie and Ron Elrod are black belts who travel to Japan annually to study their craft with Soke Hatsumi, the 34th-generation ninjutsu grandmaster. Their children, 21-year-old Kami and 24-year-old Wyatt, have followed in their footsteps, training with their parents. Experts in the art of self-defense, the Elrods are physically alert and sharp. They are not a family muggers would want to meet in a dark alley. Despite their physical prowess and skill with weapons, the Elrods are more welcoming than intimidating. And to the students and parents at the American Academy of Martial Arts, the family’s 18-year-old Howard County martial-arts school, the Elrods’ physical accomplishments, while inspiring, are secondary to their other qualities.
