Welcome to K-9 Lifesavers!

Please donate over the holidays to K-9 Lifesavers.
We have a wish list for all our nice dogs (we have no naughty dogs) at Amazon Wish List, and always need financial support. Please contact us if you would like to sponsor K-9 Lifesavers efforts.

About Us
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.

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. The Elrods are especially involved in canine rescue. They are active with an organization called K-9 Lifesavers that helps foster dogs; they personally foster
