Animal Protection & Welfare,
Mission: The Dog Liberator is a non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing homeless and abandoned dogs, primarily dogs from high-kill shelters and owners who can no longer care for them. By working with committed volunteers, local veterinarians, trainers, and foster homes, we are able to rescue hundreds of dogs every year.
From June of 2009 to date, we have rescued, rehabilitated, spay/neutered, and re-homed over 700 dogs throughout the Southeast.
Our dogs are fostered in a home environment which enables us to evaluate the dog’s true temperament, provide them with loving temporary care, and find them well-matched, carefully screened homes. We also serve as a resource to our community and all pet owners by providing education and information on responsible pet ownership, including the importance of spay/neuter, positive behavior training, and good nutrition. Our dogs are examined, vaccinated, micro-chipped, spayed or neutered before they are re-homed.
The Dog Liberator continues to focus on rescuing herding dogs. Herding dogs have specific needs, both physical and mental, and when adopted to the wrong environment, they can develop behavioral issues. Herding breeds consist of Collies, Border Collies, Australian Shepherds, Shetland Sheepdogs, and herding mixes.
The Dog Liberator prides themselves on rescuing and adopting deaf/blind dogs and shy fearful dogs that are at high risk for euthanasia.
