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 love this dog rescue. They gave us our sweet border collie and we can't imagine our lives without her. It's true, dogs may not be your whole life, but they do make your life whole. They do incredible work on a shoe string.

I can't say enought good things about TDL! We adopted our Border Collie mix, Dolly, from them 1.5 years ago. TDL rescued my Dolly girl just a few hours before she was scheduled to be euthanized! I will be forever grateful, she is a wonderful companion and we just love her to pieces! I try to contribute money every month to TDL because they do great work and operate on very little money. If you are looking for a charity who will leverage every cent you give them into saving more animals, this is it. TDL is wonderful.

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

None, they just need to keep up the great work!

Where do I begin? This organization devotes all of their heart and time to finding homes for these helpless, wonderful animals who would otherwise be euthanized, abused, or spend their entire existence in a shelter. My daughter has adopted two dogs (the latest is featured in the picture for this ad) from them and I wrote a children's book last year using this organization as my primary source. From that experience, one of my co-workers was so moved and impressed by them she ended up adopting a dog also.

I really have never seen anything like them. They are selfless, amazing angels and I will continue to support them in any way I can. Whether they win this or not, in my eyes and a lot of others they are they greatest non-profit EVER! I admire the work they do diligently without ever expecting any personal praise but with only one thing in mind. God Bless you all for what you do. Keep up the good work. You make the world a better place.

I can't begin to tell you how wonderful TDL is - not only for the dogs, but for all the folks associated with this NP. TDL is headed up by Gisele - and you can't find someone who has more compassion and knowledge of animal psychology! We never intended on adopting a deafie, and now that we have one we will NEVER go back! Our sweet girl is always upstaging all the other dogs on the agility equipment, and she has more personality than any dog I have ever met. TDL has been there for us every step of the way - answering all our questions and providing support through medical issues (our dog has many food allergies and we had a rough time getting her diagnosed). We love TDL, and we are happy to entrust our donations to such a great group!

This is a fantastic rescue group. They do amazing work. Our family has adopted two dogs from them with absolutely no regrets. I really can't say enough good things about them.

Gisele and the volunteers at the Dog Liberator are doing a great service for the community. Too many herding dogs are abandoned. As the owner of a Sheltie, I know how wonderful and kind the breed is. I am so happy that an organization is out there that is looking out for these dogs. The stories of saving and adopting out the dogs are inspirational.

If more rescues were run like TDL all dogs would have a forever home.

TDL is a model that all dog rescues could use to place lovely dogs in loving forever homes. There track record is outstanding and they have had huge success placing throw away dogs (deaf). That is miraculous. I have a good friend that got a dog from TDL and they are so in love with this dog and he with his owners that it was a match made in heaven. If I ever get another dog (currently have 4) I will go through TDL.

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

Nothing except get them more money and volunteers to help.

Fantastic rescue that works 24/7 on saving dogs, some that are minutes from being put down. Perfectly, great dogs almost being put down!!?? As a donor, or someone just interested, they have a great website and great adoption process. They also keep you in the know with newsletters, and DAILY updates via Facebook and their website. They are a rescue I trust 100%, and know my donations are going 100% to the rescue effort.

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

None, unless getting some more donations counted as a change. They need more recognition and more donations to save MORE dogs!

I became familiar with The DogLiberator in 2009 while volunteering at a local shelter. This rescue group was very willing to help our small shelter place puppies and dogs within their foster home network. They did an excellent job finding permanent homes for the pets they received from our shelter and continue to do great work.
I have volunteered for animal welfare for 30 years and have seen many shelter environments and worked with various rescue groups. The DogLiberator is professionally run and continues to do a great job.

This is a wonderful rescue who are all about the dogs. They take wonderful care of their dogs and get to know them very well.

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

Move them to South Florida so they would be closer to where I live!
