Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: Lucky Dog Animal Rescue is a non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing homeless and abandoned animals, primarily dogs from high-kill shelters and owners who can no longer care for them. By working with committed volunteers, foster homes, local veterinarians, trainers, and boarding facilities, we are able to rescue hundreds of animals every year, provide them with loving temporary care, and find them well-matched, carefully screened forever 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.

Results: From our founding in May, 2009 through August, 2011, we have rescued 3,100 dogs!

I have volunteered with Lucky Dog for the past 5.5 years as a handler at adoption events, occasional data entry, and as a home visitor before adoption or foster approval. I have only great things to say. It is professionally run by volunteers, highly-organized, and has only the best care and potential home fit in mind for each animal. I am constantly amazed at the number of dogs - and now cats - we are able to rescue each week from a variety of shelters where the animals would otherwise have to be euthanized. Volunteers' willingness to open their homes and foster animals is what makes this organization thrive, and we are so grateful for every animal we place.
