Welcome to Save-A-Life, Inc.

logo-smSave-A-Life, Inc.  is an all volunteer IRS 501 (c)(3) non-profit animal welfare organization created to prevent overpopulation of companion animals through low cost spaying and neutering.  Save-A-Life, Inc. is licensed by the Georgia Department of Agriculture.  Animal shelters in the U.S. kill approximately 5.2 million abandoned, unwanted animals each year.  Millions more suffer and die on the streets due to starvation, exposure, diseases, and automobile accidents.  For more than 4 decades Save-A-Life has assumed a leadership role in advocating low-cost spaying and neutering in order to help prevent the wholesale slaughter of unwanted, homeless dogs and cats.  Responsible pet owners do not add to the pet overpopulation problem, they spay or neuter their pets.   Save-A-Life also provides foster care, necessary medical treatment for foster animals, and a placement assistance program to help members of the public place their companion animals.  All funding for SAL programs comes from donations and fund raising activities.    We have been saving animal lives since 1967!
