Foster Program:  Foster homes provide for the temporary care of a rescue until the dog is placed into a loving, forever home.   For more information on becoming a foster parent, and our Foster Program, visit http://www.k-9lifesavers.org/?page_id=64

Sponsor a Dog!  Sponsors help us provide additional medical treatment beyond basic vetting, and helps offset boarding costs when our foster homes are full.    K-9 Lifesavers treats dogs with heartworm, parvo, upper respiratory infections, and special surgical procedures.  Our adoption fees do not fully cover the additional vetting costs for these illnesses, and/or boarding.   For more information on our Sponsor Program, visit:  http://www.k-9lifesavers.org/?page_id=58.

PLEASE HELP CHEVY!  He has been is rescue for a long time and would really, REALLY love to find a family he can call his own. Chevy is a very special boy and deserves a very special family to love him. He has come a long way from the negative past he most certainly endured and he's started to overwrite those bad memories with good memories. When Chevy came to rescue he had wounds all over his body from being beat up by other dogs and that is the reason for his anxiety towards other dogs. Because of that, he takes a little while to trust, but once he does he's fiercely loyal and protective.  If you enjoy the feisty, smart, active personality types, then Chevy is for you...he's smart, fast, and furious!  He is also a little lover boy but in a cool dude sort of way. Chevy really has become a great little guy and really enjoys sitting by you and getting attention.  He is very good about entertaining himself in the backyard and loves to play outside, bask in the sun on the lounger by the pool, chase squirrels, or just sniff around.  Chevy has been looking for his furever home for quite sometime and someday he is hopeful the right person or family (with older children, not babies) will be looking for a cool little dude and take him home! Once he trusts his human and learns his new home, he is protective of his domain. Please consider giving Chevy a chance at a loving home, he truly is a wonderful dog with just a couple quirks!  Chevy will enhance your life and make you smile after a long day at work.

Chevy is fully house-trained and is good with small dogs (best with small females) once he gets to know them; no big dogs and no cats.  He would, however, prefer to be an only dog, if possible. Chevy MUST have a fenced yard to play in since the dog park makes him nervous. He is gentle and kind to adults and children that don't get in his face and he loves to wrestle with his foster siblings and carry around stuffed animals everywhere he goes.  If you would consider giving Chevy the very special home he deserves, please contact Dena (denae@k-9lifesavers.org) to talk in-depth about Chevy.  

  
Your new pet may require a refresher in house-training.  K-9 Lifesavers recommends all new adopters enroll their new pet into obedience training.   This provides for an easier transition into a new home, ensures the dog remains well socialized, and helps form a bond between the dog and new owner.

The adoption fee for this dog is $300, which includes basic vetting, rabies and distemper/parvo vaccinations, treatment for worms, spay/neuter surgery, heartworm testing, monthly heartworm prevention, monthly flea/tick prevention, and transport costs.   If interested in adopting, please download and complete an Adoption Questionnaire and email to Dena at denae@k-9lifesavers.org

About K-9 Lifesavers

About Our Rescue Group...

K-9 Lifesavers is an all-volunteer, 501(c)3 non-profit organization that rescues homeless and abandoned dogs. We save canines that are scheduled for euthanasia from high kill shelters, where there are typically held only 3-7 days. K-9 Lifesavers also strives to educate the importance of responsible dog ownership, including spay/neuter, training, and pet nutrition.

K-9 Lifesavers relies primarily upon our dedicated foster families since we do not operate a shelter. These homes provide loving, temporary care until our rescues find their forever homes. We are always looking for foster families.

Please visit our website www.k-9lifesavers.org for additional information about K-9 Lifesavers. The website lists our available dogs, volunteer opportunities, foster information, and various ways to donate.

Please help us rescue more canines waiting for their second chance at life with a forever home! Please adopt a rescue, foster, volunteer, or donate!

Come Meet Our Pets...

K-9 Lifesavers holds adoption events each weekend throughout the Washington D.C. area.

Please take a look at our website http://k-9lifesavers.org/?page_id=52 for our next adoption event.

All regular adoption events are held from 12 – 2pm.

Our Adoption Process...

The adoption process is almost always completed within one week of time you submitted your application (times can vary depending on your location, the dog’s location, and availability).

· Fill out an adoption application (Completion of the Adoption Application does not guarantee adoption- it is the first step in our adoption process).

· An adoption counselor will call you to review your application.

· The adoption counselor will call your reference, landlord/condo association, and veterinarian (if applicable).

· The adoption counselor will set up a home visit (the entire household should be present for the visit).

· The adoption counselor will schedule a time for you, your family, and any other pets to meet the dog(s) you've applied for.

Once approved, you will need to finalize your adoption by completing an adoption contract and paying the adoption fee in cash or check. At that time, available medical records will be provided along with a variety of other information.
