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. 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 5 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. Save-A-Life, Inc. is licensed by the Georgia Department of Agriculture. We have been saving animal lives since 1967!


Current Events and Announcements

Mobile Adoption Schedule

Looking to adopt a cat or dog?  Here is where we will be:

Abercorn Street PetSmart Store, Savannah, GA:

Due to the local state of emergency declared by Mayor  Van Johnson, Save-A-Life Animal Rescue will not hold adoptions March 21-April 5, 2020.
If already considering adoption, it can still be a good time to adopt. You will have an abundance of time to bond and train your new pet if you choose to self quarantine and pets can be a wonderful source of comfort during times of stress.
Our adoptable pets can be viewed at savealifepets.org. Please take advantage of our online options for application. You can submit an application, and get pre-approved for adoption without leaving the comfort of home. 

If you are seeking to re-home an unaltered pet, you must contact a Save-A-Life volunteer first. Call the information line (912 598-7729) and leave your name, your contact information and a message saying you wish to talk to a volunteer about re-homing an unaltered pet.

Looking to re-home a pet? Be sure to read the information in the “Find a New Home for Your Pet” section before bringing your pet to mobile adoption.
