About Us

Adopting A Friend

To adopt one of our wonderful rescue dogs please contact Lisa at 4pawlifesaver@suddenlink.net for an adoption application.  Once your application is received we will contact your vet and personal references and if everything checks out can schedule a home check and meet and greet with the dog of your choice. 

There is a $150 adoption fee to help cover the vetting expenses.  All of our dogs are fully vetted before being adopted (spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations, fecal tested and treated, heart worm tested and on prevention or being treated, and all have been screened by the vet. 

Who We Are

4 Paw LifeSaver is a small independent rescue that officially began in 2011.  The founder has been involved in animal rescue for most of her life, and while volunteering at high kill shelters and working with other rescues decided to do more.  So the rescue was created to help save the lives of shelter dogs. 

All of our dogs are pulled from high kill shelters, usually on their last day, and placed into foster homes.  Having our dogs in foster homes means that we can tell you all about their personality and habits, they are either house trained or being taught, and there is someone working with them to correct any bad habits they may have to make them the perfect pet you have been looking for.  Also since they are in foster homes we can assure you that they are dog friendly, since they are all living in homes with other dogs, some are even living with cats! 

We are always in need of fosters to help save more dogs from the shelter, if you are interested in fostering please contact Lisa at 4pawlifesaver@suddenlink.net
