Areas K-9 Lifesavers Serves

Our adopters come from Washington D.C, Maryland, and Northern Virginia.

K-9 Lifesavers holds adoption events each weekend throughout the Washington D.C. area. K-9 Lifesavers does not operate a shelter, so please check out our adoption event list (http://k-9lifesavers.org/adoptable-dogs/adoption-events/) and meet us at our next adoption event!

K-9 Lifesavers's Adoption Process

1. Submit Application

2. Interview

3. Approve Application

4. Meet the Pet

5. Sign Adoption Contract

6. Pay Fee

7. Take the Pet Home

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

· Fill out an adoption questionnaire, found at http://k-9lifesavers.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/K9Lifesavers_2016application.pdf (please note, completion of the Adoption Questionnaire 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 entire household should be willing and present for a home 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.


ADOPTION FEES

· Young Adult Dog (7 months to 8 years) - $300

· Puppy (6 months and younger) - $375

· Heartworm Positive Dog - $375 (This fee includes treatment for heartworm)

Adoption fees cover basic vetting, rabies, distemper/parvo vaccinations, treatment for worms, heartworm testing, monthly heartworm prevention, monthly flea/tick prevention, and our transport costs. Please note that puppies 6 months and younger must be spayed/neuter at the adopter's expense.

About K-9 Lifesavers

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 for 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 at 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! Adopt a rescue, foster, volunteer, or donate!
