Take a look at Cricket! This cute gal is looking for a new home...shes super sweet and good with people once she trusts them and other dogs. Cricket will do well with a patient adopter willing to give her time to adjust.

Cricket is a quirky girl, she isnt a super outgoing & she is very shy, but she makes up for it in the most affectionate ways. She must go to a home with another dog. Another dog will show her that people are okay and will show her the ropes of a new home. Cricket has been living in a foster home with a family, multiple dogs and a cat. Cricket is a great couch cuddler and her favorite place is sitting under the table waiting for her tiny human to drop some food! Can you give Cricket a forever home? Email us & talk to her foster mom for more information.

Your new pet will require a refresher in house-training. K-9 Lifesavers strongly 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 the new family. 

Adoption fees cover basic vetting, spay/neuter surgery, rabies, distemper/parvo vaccinations, treatment for worms, heartworm testing, monthly heartworm prevention and monthly flea/tick prevention (while the animal is in our care), and transport costs from high-kill shelter. Please note that on average, K-9 Lifesavers spend significantly more on each dog than their adoption fee. Adoption fee for HW positive dogs also covers heartworm treatment at our partner vets. 

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 or email our Foster Coordinator at
