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.
Results: Over 700 gorgeous and highly adoptable animals have been saved from unnecessary euthanasia and placed in loving homes.
Target demographics: homeless death row dogs
Direct beneficiaries per year: 200 beautiful dogs
Geographic areas served: Southeast United States
Programs: rescue, rehabilitation, medical care, behavioral assessments, training, spay/neuter and adoptions.

I have never met TDL, but I have called and emailed her with my questions and concerns regarding my dogs. She has always taken the time to give me advice, suggestions, recipes, and sometimes just to listen. It is comforting to know that there is someone out there loving the pups until they find their forever home. She is a wonderful person and a blessing to both the furry and me (the not so furry).

If I have extra to give - I send her a paypal donation. Everyone should take the time to just send a few dollars. Make a difference and it only takes a few minutes.

I have not had the pleasure of adopting from the organization yet but I follow their adoptions. Giselle seems very professional and organized. She does dogs and humans a great service. We are lucky there are people like her who care so much for animals and find them a perfect home so they can know love.

They are an excellent rescue. They see to it that all animals are vetted, spayed or neutered, and are placed in loving, responsible homes. I enjoy cross posting to hopefully save some animals. They have a great network of supporters and rehabilitators.

After losing my collie,I turned to several pet finder organizations with little result until I contacted Dog Liberator. From the first contact they were encouraging. They promised to find me the right dog and they delivered. They care so much for the dogs and the families wanting to adopt. They follow up to make sure it is a good match. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a dog.

TDL is an incredible group. They understand herding dogs and helped us find the perfect home for one we pulled from a shelter and were dealing with. Wonderful people who care.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

This is such a wonderful Dog Rescue group. They gave me hints on how to try and catch a stray near where I live. Although I was not successful, Animal Control was and the Dog Liberator picked him up and he turned out to be a deaf and blind pooch which is why he was so scared and would never let me get close enough to catch. He is beautiful and was adopted into a wonderful home.
I also love the way this organization continually gives update on past adoptees.

I honestly came by this rescue just by chance. I work for a great Australian Cattle Dog Rescue out in Arizona but I was really interested to see if there were Australian Shepherd puppies out in the states that needed rescuing. I am not seriously looking for a second dog yet, but I wanted to know if it was possible to adopt a pure bred aussie puppy. Low and behold that is the case. I came across the "friends" litter on pet finder and was so happy to see that my dream can come true one day. I am now Facebook friends with Dog Liberator and they seem to have such a fun atmosphere with in their organization and do a great job saving lives. Its important for me to see such fun with in a rescue and not a group that is constantly sharing the negative and need for money aspect of things. As a fellow rescue volunteer I know way too well the constant need of foster homes and donors and the fact that so many dogs die each day, so to see an extremely up beat group is very refreshing. I may live in AZ but I love Dog Liberator from a far. Keep on keeping on :D.
